    hi all!

    in the last week i've been watching some awkward behavior from my powerbook g4 lcd screen. when i move the screen (rotate to close or open) the screen flicks. white horizontal pixel strips emerge on my screen, in a fractions of seconds. seems like a malfunction :( . i've never dropped my powerbook, so it could not be jammed by a fall. this started to happen with no reason that i could understand. my powerbook has 1 and half years. anyone with the same prob? i could use some help here.... i thought this could be a temporary problem but it has passed almost a week!

    thks for the help!

    Might simply be a matter of a loosened cable. Are you very confident at opening the machine up and checking? If you tell me which machine you have exactly, I might be able to post you a guide as to how its done.
