Powerbook Video Problems

My Powerbook g4 12" 1.5ghz is having video problems. Yesterday when I tried to turn it on I could hear the drives spin up, but had no video nor chime. So, I took it all apart and decided to leave it until morning. I tried it this morning and everything worked fine so I started putting everything back together and now it doesn't work again.

I tried resetting everything I could.

Any help is appreciated!

Cable shorting out in the hinge somewhere? Try moving the screen to see if you get any change. You can take it all back apart but wrap electrical tape around the wires that goes through the hinge... that is if that's the problem.
