All,

I know this has been discussed a million times but I couldn't find the specific info I needed via search/Apple website.

A friend of a friend has a G4 iBook and has been informed her logic board is probably dead, as it won't start up anymore. I know there was some kind of replacement program a while back for people with a certain serial number whose iBook logic board died...

Which serial number range did this apply to? Any other conditions to this offer, such as warranty etc?

Thanks.

Welcome to the 'club' :(

Unfortunately Apple want $1000+ for a new logic board....+ fitting, of course. I did a bit of searching when mine blew and it's possible to get them in from the US a bit cheaper (~$US500).

Guys the logic boards can be repaired, there is no need to replace or exchange the logic board. I dont think I've heard of anyone repairing the boards, its all about replacing! To an old tech like me half the fun is hunting down the fault and having the satisfaction of repairing the board to the component level. If I replaced boards all day long I'd loose interest in the servicing game. We repair ibook boards all the time, hardly ever need to replace a entire board. $1000 AUD for a new logic board... compare that to a repair at less than half that price...
