Display Problems. iBook g4 12" 1.33GHz

After painfully solving my power problem, I'm back to my screen problem.


This is how the screen appears whenever I boot up, and pretty much do anything. The backlight is still responsive.. it's just that my screen is as you can see, raped.
Any help would be awesome.
Thanks, Jacob.

Logic Board failure. You are basically screwed. Have you tried hooking it up to a display? Most likely the LB failed and you will need to buy a new one.

You've been blessed with Apple Quality Control. The only permanent fix to this one's a new logic board. With the cost of that, you might be better saving up for a refurbished Macbook; c2d books can be had for 900 bucks...

You might be able to do the "shim" fix. iFixit has a video on how to do it, it might now work though. I would just sell that thing and get some cash for it.

It's a bad LCD
I had an old PowerBook with this problem
changed LCD, bingo, good as new

The chances of this being a logic board issue is very slim
