My daughter's G4 iBook 12" 1ghz just went off AppleCare in August and the
video cable is on the fritz now - I can use the machine fine with the video
out port. But all the LCD shows is fine vertical and horizontal lines and
colors that are movable with the cursor - the cable is the issue?

Does anyone have any luck with this issue and applecare after the end of
care? It seems to me that this is a known issue...

Any thoughts for how to proceed?

Thank you
