iBook Inverter Voltages - 09/20/06 04:04 PM

Hi all, I need to rig up an iBook LCD with a separate power supply for my latest mod. Can anyone tell me the DC voltages going into the inverter board? I figure if I can supply them from elsewhere, I can accomplish what I need.

Many thanks

I am getting an ibook in the mail anyday now that I will be dissassembling, maybe I will be able to geth that info for you in a week or two. Hopefully someone will beat me to it.

Good Luck!

OK, so I found the time to do it myself.
Most iBooks withe the exception of the clamshells and maybe the earliest and latest of the white iBooks use the same inverter, so this may be of use to others.

There are four wires: red, black, white and yellow. Red and black supply 15V, white and yellow are kicking out 2.5V. The red and white are positive.

Now to find a 15V PSU from somewhere..........
