    Anyone ever replaced the display inverter in a G4 iBook (12") and have any tips for me. I am planning to dive into this repair this weekend to hopefully fix my mom's laptop. I have the guide from ifixit.com as the go-by. Looks like a pretty involved process.

    I've never replaced it myself, but I know how involved it is. Remember where all of the screws go!

    Successfully completed the inverter replacement last night, unfortunately it didn't fix the backlight problem :(

    Aaaahhhh, I know how you feel, if you can, return the inverter and buy a backlight.
