video card ibook g3?

ok, so here is my issue...
My ibook g3, 800mhz, has a screen problem. The whole unit boots up just fine, the hard drive spins up and it makes the welcome sound, and I put in cd's and they play just fine, even out of the headphone jack. But, the problem is there is just no picture at all. I hook up an external monitor to the ibook via the jump cable and that also recieved no picture. The reel cable has been recently replaced, as of a few days (black wire was broken off). When I shine light through the apple on the back I can see through it and the image comes up, but no screen shot.

could also be a loose cable between the screen and the logic board...
I had that happen to me once, but it was cover under the apple logic board repair program even thought it techically was not the logic board...
Sometimes the appropriate response to reality is to go insane.

Do you have Applecare? An iBook G3 should still be within 3 years of purchase.
