Witch Repair is the lease problem ? Replacing the entire LCD unit or Replacing the video Cable. Problem is intermitting screen when moving it to the right angle. It works fine when I get it in the right spot but hard to stop flicking on & off , difernt colors. G4 and G3 is easy oh by the way I can swap the MB to a unit that has a good screen. Thank you.

Since this is a video issue I would begin by connecting the MB to an external monitor to be sure the graphic chip is OK. From your description I would say the GPU is OK but who knows... If so then it's easier to swap the whole display if you have a working spare one. If you don't have one it's cheaper to buy a LVDS cable than a whole display but replacing the LVDS cable is a more difficult job. It's up to you to take the decision. Just check the repair guides here on iFixit to view the repair steps. Good luck...
