I just bought a used 14" G3 ibook and when I got it home and tried to turn it on the screen wont light up. The apple on the front isn't lit either. I can tell the computer is on because It will eject the cd tray and the volume keys work and make noise when pressed.

Is there anything that could be going on other than the screen just needing to be replaced?

Where could I get a 14" screen?

Thanks very much [img]smile.gif[/img]

Press the F2 key a couple times, making the screen brighter. It could be turned down all the way, seeming non functional.

You can also try connecting the iBook to an external display to determine weather you have a problem with the LCD screen or the video card.

Any problems should warrant you tracking down whoever sold you a lemon and demanding a full refund. Save yourself some grief - you may end up in an endless spiral of debt trying to fix this thing up.
