Is it just the backlight that's playing up? ie. can you still see your
desktop (very faintly) if you shine a light behind your screen?
The only solution I found was to return the iBook to Apple for their
repair (under warranty). You might want to try any other suggestions
people have first.

I have a weird problem.
I usually leave my G3 iBook (running Jaguar) on all the time and just
put it to sleep when not in use. After a few days of normal activity,
the CD eject button won't respond. I hit f12, and nothing happens. The
only way I can get the tray to open is to restart the iBook. I can't
make the behavior repeat right away, it is usually a couple days before
It might be some application I loaded or updated recently, or the recent
Jaguar update (i don't remember having it happen before then)... and
I've had the iBook up without restart for over 20 days before.
Anyone else have a similar problem or know of a fix?
