iBook screen goes black, but backlight is ON

Message #1 - Posted 2005/09/28 - michael.mcgarry

Hi,

My iBook screen after a few minutes of use goes black. It does not turn off, the backlight is still ON.

I press keys and move the mouse and nothing happens. I have to remove the battery and reboot the machine. The same thing then happens again after a few minutes. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Michael

Mine sometimes goes black (well, really sort of a Very Dark blue) but if I move the hinge, it come back.
