PROBLEM:
I start it up my Powerbook and I get screen activity for about 1 second (see videos) and then it goes dim. You can still (barely) see the display.

STEPS TAKEN:
Connected external monitor, pressed F7
Repairing disk from PowerMac G5 failed in Target Disk mode.
Reset PRAM.
Tried starting up from disk.

The screen fickers and goes to almost nothing... What is wrong with my PB?
