So yesterday morning my iBook G4 died. It started flipping between white, red, green, blue, grey, dark grey, then black screens in a cycle. I found some (vague) info about it being the video chip coming apart from the logic board. So I fussed with it and fought with it, and couldn't even get it into target disk mode. I had lost all of my notes from Winter term so far, and with finals 2 weeks away. So I called apple, and ordered a refurb macbook. The sales guy said If I got the overnight shipping (For an additional $27) it would get to me sometime before next tuesday. I closed my eyes and bit the bullet. Once I got home from work, I decided to pop open the iBook and take a look at the video chip, see if I could do the "shim trick" to fix it. I should add that it's much easier to take apart the 14" iBook G4 than it is the 12" iBook G3. Once I got it half disassembled, I put the battery back in and Presto! it works now. The good news continues, as my new macbook (with regular free shipping) should be at my house tomorrow, according to FedEx.Woot. So now the only problem I have is with the 12" iBook G3 that has a video problem as well. The backlight turns off unless you hold the front edge of the case to the left of the track pad. Does anyone have experience with this particularly? And is it pretty much the same issue as what I have with the G4? Thanks in advance.
