iBook sleep light dead

Message #1 - Posted 2003/11/23 - Eddy Young

Hi all,

The cute sleep light on my iBook G3 800MHz has died. I noticed it when I smelled a very faint burning smell near the track pad. Is there any way of replacing it short of sending it back to Apple, given that the warranty is over (one week ago, bummer!)?

Thanks.

They will cover it under the warranty. And if they don't, Trading Standards will make whoever sold it to you cover it under the warranty.

A few taps later, the light is pulsating. Thanks for the input, Daniele.

Eddy,

Were those taps on the iBook casing or taps on the telephone pad to contact Apple? I take it from the quick response it is taps on the iBook casing...

It was on the iBook casing, of course. What else works?

Opening the case and soldering back the loose connection you've jiggled into place by tapping the case, perhaps ;).
