Yea, I believe it is the logic board, as that is what they told me the 1st time. The screen goes dark... as if the backlight is gone. Pressing firmly on the left front corner can sometimes...briefly...bring the LCD back. It does output to the external w/o any problems. It works fine in that area.

An iMacBook would be interesting. At this point don't really have any solid ideas.
