What is the iBook Logic Board Repair Extension Program?
The iBook Logic Board Repair Extension Program is a worldwide program covering repair or replacement of the logic board in specific iBook models manufactured between May 2002 and April 2003 that are experiencing specific component failures.
How does Apple define a "component failure" for this program?
The iBook Logic Board Repair Extension Program covers iBooks that have a particular component failure on the logic board, resulting in the computer starting up but the built-in and attached external displays exhibiting one or more of the following symptoms:
Hmmm... My serial is not included...
I hope thats a good thing!
Yes and no I would say. But I find it rather odd yours is not included : when did you bought it? I have the same model as yours and I bought mine at the end of august.
Serial number begins by (S)UV317, and Apple program covers (s)uv220 to (s)uv318... Guess I was « lucky »...
iBook 900 12.1 (384 MB RAM), Canon i450 printer, Epson Perfection 1660 scanner, Alcatel SpeedTouch 510 modem, OS X 10.3.3, Sony DSC-P52 camera
I bought mine at the end of October. My serial is UV333
So its outside the numbers they indicate. So i assume it was one of the last G3 iBooks produced. I hope they fixed the issues with models with later serials like mine. I would of rather be included because now I will be uncertain of the whole thing and not have the sense of security like someone with an iBook that is covered. But then again I can see it as a positive sign, because they wouldn't of stopped the serial there for nothing. not like they just pick a lottery! [img]tongue.gif[/img] I HOPE NOT!!

Will this mean there will be a bunch of refurb'ed units out?? The one that I originally bought with my ladyfriend conked out on the 1st power up, and all subsequent ones. They retailer took it back and gave me a new one. But, will the other ones be repaired and sold?? Might be an attractive offer if so...
