iMac Screen problem
I know this is a long shot but I figured it can't hurt to ask. So one of my staff members has a 2005 iMac G5 17" with a defective screen. When you turn on the computer you here the Apple chime but the screen doesn't display (see pic). Now the kid doesn't have any money but is a really hard worker so I thought I would try and help him out.
So I have been searching Kijiji and craigslist for a used screen but no luck. Anyone have any suggestions on where to possible find a cheap used screen or know of any cheap fixes?
If you can't find one on eBay you may be out of luck in all honesty.
Get the model number of the panel itself and find a good one.. Apple does not design their panels from what I recall so it should be available.
Though, selling the iMac as parts and getting the kid a low end c2d box would be of more benefit. :P (not only way faster, but also way better in all regards as far as I am concerned)
You can use an external display with it, you just need the right adapter.
