My beloved display has gone black with the "blinking short-short-long" light syndrome. I see here that there are lots of others with the same problem and that it needs a new "inverter board" (whatever that is).

If I unplug and replug in the monitor from the computer it comes back on, but only for a few minutes.

I tried to talk to Apple about this but they want $200 just to talk to me!

All I want to know is IF I can fix this, and if so where I get this board and how do I fix it. Is this board in the monitor or in the G4 Dual 1.25?

I have searched the forum but can't find an answer to the specifics.

Please help me. I am desperate. I can't see my computer with this black monitor.


G4 Dual 1.25, Mac OS X (10.4.7)
