display brighter? My ibook display is washed out and dim. I calibrated it and have it set to the highest brightness but it's dull. Is it the inverter or the backlight that controls the brightness?


thnx in advance,

The backlight is only a long and tiny neon bulb. It's the inverter that powers up the backlight. The power goes from the motherboard to the inverter then to the backlight. I would try to replace the inverter first cause it's a cheap part that you can find for $20 on eBay. What is your iBook model ?

I have an Ibook G4 12" 1.3ghz, and I have an old inverter

from an Ibook G3, I just didn't want to bother if the inverter dosen't affect the brightness.


I read that G3 & G4's all use the same inverters.

A new Inverter Board will not resolve the issue.
