    So, I'm replacing the inverter board in the iBook and I manage to RIP THE SPEAKER WIRES (like, no hope in ever replacing. They RIPPED.)

    Where is a place other than PBfixit I can get iBook parts? (PBfixit is out of stock of what I need.)

    What I need is the upper case (trackpad area) for a G3 800 MHz.

    Any of these any good?

    Can you not strip the wires a little, solder them back together and cover the join with tape? If it's just the speaker wires there can only be 4 (max), so joining them should be easy.

    Why were you taking the machine to bits anyway?

    Edit to add: ignore the last question. I should learn to read better!

    Ah, never mind. I tried to have my dad take out the connector, so we COULD strip it and put them back in.

    HE RIPPED THE FEMALE END OFF THE LOGIC BOARD.

    so, my brother will be using headphones.
    forever.

    and ever

    because i am NOT REPLACING A LOGIC BOARD FOR $300SOME !
