I have a friend who has an iBook that no longer sends "proper" output to the monitor. In a regular boot it is black, with the T key boot (forget name of boot) it produces a very scrambled image. I am almost certain that it is due to the problem running around that caused apple to offer the extended logic board repair program on the iBook's. http://www.apple.com/support/ibook/faq/ Her serial number matches, it was purchased about a year ago, and she bought the 3 year apple care protection warranty. However when we go into the apple store and talk to someone at the genious bar, they refuse to repair it because there is a chip in the audio out port. I have had 2 ipods, and both of them have had this happen to them, they are fine. This part seems to be pretty flimsy, as I have a very hefty case on my latest ipod. They say that it is connected to the logic board and therefor will not repair. They take notes that are stored somewhere, so if we go back in and get a different person, they just read the notes and tell us the same thing. I am quite sure that its not the sound port causing the problem but can not prove it, this would be too expensive of a repair for her to pay for. Does anyone have any suggestionis?
