Default Apple PowerBook G4 Laptop

I have one of these on offer. It has served me well for about ten years but has finally got a fault. Therefore I am offering it for spares or repair.

It is a PowerBook 12" 1.5GHz SuperDrive with 80GB Hard Drive and has the Apple Part Number M9691. The RAM has been updated to the maximum possible.

Basically, it works, but when it warms up the display goes blank. I think it is a problem with whatever drives the screen illumination as you can see the contents of the screen at certain angles even when dark.

I am offering it free for the cost of postage rounded up to the nearest pound. It comes without the power supply. I can supply the original disks if they are of any use.

Looks like you are the only person in the hat, so as far as I'm concerned it's yours.

Please PM me with your address and we'll take this further.

I might have a spare backlight inverter for one of these, also a screen. I'll see if I can find them and get the part numbers off them, if they are the same parts and might help fix this machine then I'd be happy to pass them on for the cost of postage.

Regards
Lloyd

That's a very generous offer, Lloyd. I'll send a PM when the machine arrives.
Thanks.
