iBook Screen Problems

[ #7680 ]

The screen on my iBook has a loose connection. At certain angles it will flicker until I move it.

I hope I don't have to send it back, since it's a US iBook - I bet I have trouble sending it to a UK repair centre if I have to. :-(

Anyone else had trouble? I open and close my iBook about 4 or 5 times a day, so I guess it gets a lot more abuse than most. But the hinge looks sturdy and I expected better.

  • The screen on my ibook died after just under a year of use. I put it to sleep one day, and when I opened it back up, it woke up, but the screen stayed black. When I shone a light through the apple at the back, you could see something on the screen, so it was obviously the backlight that had died, but the lcd was fine.

    I took it to the reseller (in Australia) I bought it from to get it fixed. In the end, it took seven weeks for them to fix, and I think they basically replaced everything in it except the keyb
    • You're right - it's the backlight. The screen is there, it's just not lit up...

      Damn. Now to get onto Apple to see what can be done.
