Hi all,
I have a friend's black lombard (G3 333mhz) that boots up and will work with an external monitor but the lombard's monitor is black. When I shine a flashlight close I can see tons of vertical and horizontal lines, and no desktop. I opened it up the bottom and checked the connections and they all seemed fine. I didn't open up the display itself tho. It also cannot hold the display up as the hinges must be worn. Would this have anything to do with the display problem?
I wondered if anyone would know if this is the back light or the screen itself or even the logic board. I have been surfing the web and haven't been able to come up with much info for troubleshooting or repairing. Any information or tips would really be appreciated as she has little money.
