Being able to still see the desktop usually indicates an inverter failure or inverter cable failure. Try moving the screen up and down and see if anything changes. If it does, here's the way to replace it: PowerBook G4 Aluminum 15" 1-1.5 GHz Inverter/Antenna Cables Replacement

Here's just the inverter without the cable: G4 Aluminum 15" Display Inverter

Here's just the cable: G4 Aluminum 15" 1/1.25/1.33/1.5 GHz Inverter & Antenna Cables
