Is my screen broken?
Someone gave me an old PowerBook G4 12in a few days ago. I have other, better computers, but this one has a special place in my heart because I always wanted one when it came out, all those years ago.
Anyways, the thing boots, makes the apple sound, but the screen stays black.
I just wanted to run it past you and see if you think its the CFL tube or the entire screen. I have shined a flashlight against the screen, and can see nothing, so I am assuming that the whole thing is bad.
I don't mind spending the $20 bucks or so for a replacement; I would rather do that then scrap her. I just wanted to see what you all thought.
Thanks for the help!
Is this a good question?
