iBook G4 Backlight Issue

Hey guys,
Using my iBook today, I noticed that about every five or ten minutes or so, the backlight will flicker for about a second. After a while, it become quite annoying.

Could my backlight be dying, or do you guys know of any other reason why this is happening?

Thanks!
