Hi all! I suspect my trusty iBook has become a victim of the logic board failure problem. (Model listed in sig.) After the night, it would no longer wake from sleep . After removing all power sources, I managed to restart it, and it worked well for another 12 hrs or so. Then the screen started to flicker on and off wildly, and the iBook now appears to be gone for good. At times, it will respond to the power button, but the screen never comes on. Most of the time it is plain dead.

Naturally, the warranty is gone as of 5 months or so. Any hope, or is it dustbin time for the 'book? (Bought it from the Apple Store Sweden)

Oh well, of to get myself a consolation ipod mini ;)

iBook logic board replacement was extended until mid-Dec.

i'm not sure how it works for your iBook (i turn off sigs, sorry) and in sweden, but worth a shot before you just chuck the thing?
