    I have a 3 year old iBook G4, 14.1 inch display, which started to cause me trouble recently. at first it was just that the lower 1/3 of display was flashing shortly after opening (awakening), which stopped after a while and everything was ok.
    the problem is that now it won't go away. whole lower third is displaying overbrightened colors. it's visible, but very unreadable. i've contacted a local authorized service, but they want almost EUR 500,- for the whole procedure (probably a whole new display unit). is there any way of fixing the LCD?
    i've noticed that when i put some pressure on some points of the affected area, it goes normal for a while, but then goes back, no matter if i move or even breathe.

    hmm... unfortunately you are probably going to need a new screen... search around for the best price for someone to do it.
