    I was moding my Powerbook G4 17in when the display suddenly went black. It still gets the video signal, just no backlight.

    I have replaced the inverter and inverter cables and nothing changes! What are chances that I have dont something to the logic board?

    What would you do next?

    What exactly does "moding" your Powerbook mean? That might help us understand why this happened.

    Well "moding" might be a strong word. I am taking it apart so it can be used with the screen bent all the way back past flat. I have completely removed the screen from the body. It was working like that, then flickered, then went black!
