crwdns2890332:0Why is the Display white but an external Monitor works fine?crwdne2890332:0Is it possible to replace the display data cable without damaging the display screen as in the case of attempting to remove broken hinges on an M8407 model? I see what the inverter looks like and now know where it's located so I'll check out the connection there also. I assumed the for parts display screen would work as the seller indicate is was working before it wouldn't bot up?
crwdns2890332:0Why is the Display white but an external Monitor works fine?crwdne2890332:0Hi people new here. I too have the same or similar problem. I inherited this 2001 Mac Powerbook G4 M8407 with broken hinges initially. I took it apart to remove the display and hopefully consider replacing hinges. After the fact I was going to purchase used hinges and replace them, but almost to costly when I got a complete used for parts unit. I was able to get the original unit working with the display screen removed using external monitor. I have subsequently installed used display screen complete with hinges and now find that the same thing people are describing here happening to me. I can get the laptop to work using external monitor but only have white screen display on OEM display screen, I can however control the brightness, so not sure what the logic board or inverter looks like or where it is? Hopefully someone else can help as well. Thanks, Ron
