iBook dying again

[ #9758 ]

I'm getting pretty dismayed at the state of this ibook. The screen has started to flicker once again! I can't believe it! I'm really annoyed now. So it looks like it'll have to go back once more to be fixed.

Very very unhappy with the quality of this bit of hardware. It's no good looking great if I can't use it.

    • Thanks for the thread. Very interesting reading. I fear that my current cable already has the protective shielding around it, though perhaps not. It was repaired for almost exactly this problem about 3 months ago (which would be about three months after I got it).

      It certainly makes me think an extended warranty is worthwhile.

      Very disappointed to have to be using my vaio once again (tiny keyboard, 40mins battery life!).
