LCD will not close into bottom lock.

bought used PowerBook. lady said will not close. thought it was hindges. tore apart and looks great. the top is just a little off from the bottom part. wondering if previous owner changed the top portion with another PowerBook 17 model that is just slightly different from my model. Question, are all PowerBook 17 tops the same size and interchangable to any model of PowerBook 17 so that they all lock into place. mine looks like the top is overhanging abit so that its just a few millimeters off from locking into place. It looks solid with no play or wear, just a little off but cant push or force it into the locking tabs. magnets fine, claps retrack but just misses the hole. thanks

All the 17" PB Alu have the same display form factor and it should be flush to the bottom case when closed. Take off the top case and check if you can do a hinges adjustment or modify the display latch hook angle so it can enter in the bottom case latch when you close the display. is the PB goes to sleep normally when closing the lid ?
