    Hey everyone!
    I was just wondering if anyone could help me. My ibook has been working great and all of a sudden I have no display. It boots up fine, the eject button works, I can hear the volume if I turn it up or down. This is my second ibook and I really need this one to work!
    Its only 4 years old 800mhz,256,30GB.
    There are no apple repair places anywhere (other than the apple store) around here, so I'm not sure if theres something that I can do on my own?
    If anyone has any advice please let me know :)

    Sounds like the backlight went out or the inverter board went out.

    easy fix? or no?
    I also actually have my old ibook which I could probably just take the LCD screen and switch if I had to.

    It's probably NOT the lcd that needs swapping.

    Can you seen a wicked faint image if you hold it at just the right angle? Or does it look like an illuminated, but blank screen?
