This is how my PowerBook 145B screen looks like: From what I've been reading about PowerBook screens I think that all those "weird" lines in the screens and faded parts are due to bad capacitors, am I right? But what about that black part in the top-left side of the screen?? That doesn't look too good, does it? is that issue also the caps fault or maybe something else? Thanks!
Last week I got a non-working Powerbook 145b for 20€ (~23USD). The first thing I did was to test the power supply, which was giving a good 7.8V. I saw that the battery was still in place and I feared the worst. When I took it out my suspicions were confirmed: corrosion. It was looking pretty bad and it didn't look any better when I opened the laptop: I spent quite some time cleaning everything and given my experience with a Powerbook 180 the first thing that I did to start troubleshooting the main board was to desolder the battery connector.
