My screen is slowly dying with larger and larger white stripes down.  I would like to replace this and it does not look like a DIY job for a non tech old lady since it is attached to the computer.  What are reliable sources for getting a new screen installed?  The computer is at least a dozen years old  and has 10.4.11 on it which is fine for what I do.

g4 powerbook, Mac OS X (10.4.1)

First off, what PowerBook G4 model do you have? There is a seller on ebay sellling brand new screens.. But in the meantime, here is a high resolution screen which I belive are universal to all 17 inch PowerBooks..

Also, stay away from "WeLoveMacs.com", they are a rip off and at most charge way too much for apple parts.


Here is the link for brand new screens:

Look up seller Leonworks2010 - I spoke with him personally and has every 17 inch screen for PB G4's.. New and never used.


Hope this helps..
