The F1/ F2 buttons settle the power flow that the backlight lamp will receive. Brightness = backlight lamp intensity.

Ruth, just an advice: next time shake your boy friend, your cat or your hamster but not the iBook...LOL.

If you still see a faint image of the desktop then try the mayer suggestion. If it doesn't work then:

- the inverter cable might be disconnected from the logic board. I don't think it could be disconnected from the inverter board end cause the connector is firmly inserted in the inverter board.

- shaking the iBook broke the fragile backlight lamp in the LCD panel.

If the backlight lamp is broken you can buy a used iBook G4 LCD panel off ebay and even use a iBook G3 panel that will perfectly fit in your iBook G4

Try pushing the F2 key several times.
