Thanks for replying
I tried to calibrate the lcd, but it does not help at all. When I am using an external monitor, the external monitor changes, but the lcd does not. I think it may be a hardware problem, but I'm not sure. I tried colorsync, profiles, dumping pref files, all the software fixes I could think of, but none works.
If it is hardware, what would I be looking to fix or repair? Any suggestions would be welcome.
I gather all was well before the hard drive replacement?
Have you tried resetting the PMU?
If no joy, I would next suspect a cable or possibly it's connection, since that is something which could have been disrupted or dislodged by the hard drive replacement since the iBook was open. So the first thing to check is that the backlight and LVDS cables are seated properly and are not damaged around the hinge.
Since this problem occurred after the hard drive was replaced, you could probably bring it to the attention of whoever did the repair. They should be willing to check the cables and connections for you at no cost.
