  13. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Display Replacement: passo 13, immagine 1 di 1
    • Remove the three hex screws using a T8 Torx screwdriver (or Allen screws using an Allen key if these are used).

    • The shorter screw is in the center of the computer.

  14. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Display Replacement: passo 14, immagine 1 di 1
    • Remove the two Phillips screws on either side of the battery contacts.

  15. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Display Replacement: passo 15, immagine 1 di 1
    • Breathe deeply. Trying times are ahead, but we promise the lower case does come off.

    • Push the thin rims of the lower case surrounding the battery compartment in, bending them past the tabs, and then lift up to free that corner of the lower case.

  16. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Display Replacement: passo 16, immagine 1 di 1
    • There is a slot on the wall of the battery compartment that locks the lower case in place. Use a small flathead screwdriver to pry out the slot's lower rim and pull up on the lower case to free the slot from the tabs holding it.

    • Be careful not to break this clip!

  17. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Display Replacement: passo 17, immagine 1 di 1
    • Run a spudger along the seam between the lower case and upper case on the front of the computer to free the tabs locking the lower case. Pull up on the lower case and continue to use the spudger as necessary until you hear three distinct clicks.

  18. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Display Replacement: passo 18, immagine 1 di 1
    • Continue to run the spudger around the front, right corner. There are two tabs on the port side of the computer, one near the front corner and one near the sound-out port.

  19. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Display Replacement: passo 19, immagine 1 di 1
    • There are three tabs over the optical drive that must be released before the lower case can come off. Slide the spudger into the lower case above the optical drive and run it toward the back of the computer until you hear three distinct clicks.

  20. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Display Replacement: passo 20, immagine 1 di 1
    • Once the front and sides of the lower case are free, turn the computer so that the back is facing you and pull the lower case up and toward you until the back tabs pop free (it may be helpful to jiggle the case up and down).

  21. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Display Replacement: passo 21, immagine 1 di 1
    • Remove the small greasy springs with white plastic caps from either side of the battery contacts.

  22. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Display Replacement, Bottom Shield: passo 22, immagine 1 di 1
    • Remove the following 10 screws from the bottom shield:

    • Six 3 mm Phillips

    • Three 7.5 mm Phillips

    • One 14 mm Phillips

  23. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Display Replacement: passo 23, immagine 1 di 1
    • Lift the bottom shield off.

  24. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Display Replacement, DC-In Board: passo 24, immagine 1 di 1
    • Remove the single Phillips screw securing the DC-In board.

  25. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Display Replacement: passo 25, immagine 1 di 1
    • Disconnect the DC-In cable from the logic board.

  26. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Display Replacement: passo 26, immagine 1 di 1
    • Deroute the cable from around the optical drive, removing tape as necessary, and angle the DC-In board out of its compartment.

  27. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Display Replacement, Upper Case: passo 27, immagine 1 di 1
    • Remove the following 11 screws from the bottom of the computer:

    • Three 3 mm Phillips around the battery compartment. (Some models may only have two screws.)

    • Three 4.5 mm Phillips along the optical drive bezel. (a magnetic screwdriver may help to lift these screws out)

    • One 11 mm Phillips in the lower right corner. (if present)

    • Four 14.5 mm Phillips.

  28. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Display Replacement: passo 28, immagine 1 di 1
    • We recommend placing the computer on a soft cloth from this point on to prevent damaging the logic board.

    • Turn over the computer and open it.

    • Remove the 2 Phillips screws (3mm) from the edges of the keyboard area.

    • Remove the 4 mm Phillips screw from the lower left corner.

  29. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Display Replacement: passo 29, immagine 1 di 1
    • Before you can yank the upper case off, you must disconnect the trackpad connector, the blue and white power cable, and speaker cable as described in the next steps. Be especially careful with these cables; never pull directly on the cables, but use a spudger to pry up the connector directly.

    • Lift the upper case and use a spudger or your finger to disconnect the trackpad connector hidden beneath the white plastic tab. Due to model variatons your trackpad connector may be different than the one pictured.

  30. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Display Replacement: passo 30, immagine 1 di 1
    • Carefully lift the upper case about half of an inch and move it so that you can access the power and speaker cables.

  31. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Display Replacement: passo 31, immagine 1 di 1
    • The connectors at the ends of the cables are attached very firmly to the sockets on the logic board. Pulling directly on the cable will either separate the cable from its connector or the socket from the logic board.

    • Lift the upper case enough to disconnect the blue and white power cable from the logic board. Using your fingernails or a dental pick, carefully pry the connector from its socket. Make sure you're pulling only on the connector and not on the socket.

  32. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Display Replacement: passo 32, immagine 1 di 1
    • Carefully disconnect the multicolored speaker cable from the logic board. As before, make sure you're pulling only on the connector and not on the socket.

  33. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Display Replacement, Top Shield: passo 33, immagine 1 di 1
    • The screw circled in orange may not be present in some models.

    • Remove the following 16 screws:

    • Thirteen 3 mm Phillips.

    • One 3 mm Phillips. (actual screw not present in image)

    • Two 4 mm Phillips.

    • Be sure to fit the screw near the left hinge through the loop in the display data cable, securing the cable to the upper case.

    • Missing in this photo is the Bluetooth antenna present in some iBooks. It is located at the upper right corner of the battery compartment, just above the 4mm screw. You can see the bracket for the antenna in the photo. It is the two I-shaped holes just above the 4mm screw that must be removed in this step. To remove the antenna, slide it toward the LCD, and tilt it vertically back towards yourself.

  34. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Display Replacement: passo 34, immagine 1 di 1
    • Lift the top shield up from the right side, minding the upper left corner, which may catch on the metal framework.

    • If your iBook has Bluetooth, as discussed in the previous step, you will need to slide the antenna through the lower I-shaped hole in the shield before completely removing the shield.

  35. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Display Replacement, Modem: passo 35, immagine 1 di 1
    • Due to variations between iBook G4 models, your modem may look slightly different from the picture. All of the following steps apply to either model.

    • Remove the two Phillips screws at the corners of the modem.

  36. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Display Replacement: passo 36, immagine 1 di 1
    • Lift the modem and modem shield from the bottom.

  37. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Display Replacement: passo 37, immagine 1 di 1
    • Disconnect the RJ-11 cable from the top of the modem.

    • When replacing the modem, first make sure that both the microphone and display data cables are routed beneath where the modem lies.

  38. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Display Replacement, Display: passo 38, immagine 1 di 1
    • Turn the computer over.

    • Disconnect the inverter cable from the logic board and deroute it from the metal framework, removing tape as necessary.

  39. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Display Replacement: passo 39, immagine 1 di 1
    • Turn the computer back over.

    • The cable you're about to remove is very fragile - do not pull directly on the wires. Instead, try to pry up the connector directly, using a spudger or a small flathead screwdriver if necessary.

    • Disconnect the microphone cable at the front of the computer, between the left side of the hard drive and the metal framework.

  40. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Display Replacement: passo 40, immagine 1 di 1
    • Use the black plastic loop to disconnect the display data cable from the logic board.

  41. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Display Replacement: passo 41, immagine 1 di 1
    • Deroute the microphone and display data cables from the metal framework, removing tape as necessary.

  42. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Display Replacement: passo 42, immagine 1 di 1
    • Deroute the AirPort antenna cable from the metal framework, removing tape as necessary.

  43. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Display Replacement: passo 43, immagine 1 di 1
    • Support the display with one hand and remove the single Phillips screw on either side of the hinge (two screws total).

    • The screws go in the outer holes on each side (you can see the threads in the correct hole).

  44. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Display Replacement: passo 44, immagine 1 di 1
    • Lift the display up and tilt it backwards, freeing it from the two metal alignment posts holding the hinges in place, and slide it away from you.

Very nice guide, thanks!

I call this the “You Gotta Be Kidding Me” Era of Mac repair. The Flat Panel iMac, the iBooks… good times. If I actually get the iBook G4 running I will be most happy to update this comment.
