    Hey all! Today after my class, my Powerbook has started to do something weird. Every couple of seconds it looks like the screen is flickering.

    Should I start panicking now? :confused: should I even bother calling Apple about this?
    Thought of asking here first, see if anyone has had this happen to them.

    Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated.

    Doesn't sound good! If you are lucky it could be a nearby cellphone ringing, or worse the screencable could be a bit worn..

    yes, call Apple, that should not be happening and isn't a good sign in my book.

    Sounds like bad cables. Take it to an Apple Store and have them change it for you.

    yeah get some kind of apple tech to see it, it might be a loose connection to the screen cable rather than a worn cable if its new(ish)
