Title:

iBook screen switches off/goes black when opened more than 45 degrees

Text:

Hi,

When I open my dad's 12" G3 iBook more than a few inches (45 degrees) the screen goes black / switches off, yet when I lower the screen again it comes back on. Seems like there might be a loose connection or a cable is jamming. Can anyone help me please?

Also, is this something I can fix myself?

Kind regards
