Free Repair Campaign for Apple 17inch PowerBooks mini Wiki
j'ai le même problème, il y a une ligne rose qui apparait sur mon mac G4 sur le côté gauche de l'écran, et elle me gène beaucoup, je ne sais pas c'est à cause de quoi?
I have the same problem, there is a pink line that appears on my Mac G4 on the left side of the screen, and it bothers me a lot, I do not know it because of what?

How can owners of defective 17inch G4 1.67GHz PowerBooks
help Apple to instigate a Display Repair Extension Program?
This is a campaigning Wiki for the hundreds (thousands?) of owners of defective Apple 17inch G4 1.67GHz PowerBooks afflicted by the "Bridget Riley" vertical lines display defect. Already paid for your own repair?
A Display Repair Extension Program will reimburse the repair cost - so please do join in the campaign.
defect database website seems to indicate by correlation that the defective batch of computers was manufactured at Shanghai factory (W8) around Mar-Apr 05.
- So why are official Apple Discussions forum administrators using censorship and censuring to suppress public discussions of this problem?
- Why has Apple so far ignored this manufacturing defect by failing to even announce an investigation of this problem, pending the kind of Display Repair Extension Program that they have in place for already for the unrelated 15inch G4 PowerBook’s “white spots” defect?
- How can owners of afflicted PowerBooks take action to persuade Apple to instigate a Display Repair Extension Program?
Look out for green ACTION boxes containing suggestions of actions you can take, and for yellow QUESTION boxes to which you may be able to supply answers for the benefit of other owners of afflicted PowerBooks by editing this Wiki.
