Hey Everyone,

I mom has my older G3 imac and recently while she was surfing the net she said the the screen went dim and even after restarting it has not changed. Is this something that can be easily fixed or does it mean that the screen is dying? Any thoughts would be helpful.

Thanks

It's likely the analog/video board in the machine is dying. Common end of life problem with these machines. Will cost $200+ to fix, so is likely not worth it for this level of machine, unless it is a 500 MHz+ model with Firewire.

That's what I thought might be happening. Thanks.
