DC-in board from G4 to replace a broken G3 DC-in board.
A broken DC-in board from an ibook G3 12" 800Mhz needs replacement.
I have a spare DC-in board from an ibook G4 14".
The logic board connectors are not compatible.
Can I strip the wires to transplant the G3 board connector to the G4 Dc-in board and use it as a replacement?
I know that I still have to figure how to secure the G4 Dc-in board inside the G3 since the screws are not located in the same configuration and the "tip module" is inverted. I'm pretty sure I can figure out that one, my concern is with the voltage output to the CPU.
Will the G4 14" Dc-in board output fry the G3 12"?
PS: Soldering is not an option for me, yet...will learn how to soon!
Is this a good question?
