Hey folks,

I've got this great 180c powerbook that's great in all respects except it doesn't boot anymore. Anyone have an idea about ways to retro-fit the really very nice 10.4" TFT? It seems like such a waste when I *know* the LCD is still in perfect condition.

Cheers

Wow, I have a 180 *B/w* and a 540c. The interfaces are really small pins connectors and there's no documentation *I've* seen on how to connect them to anything but their respective hardware.

Try asking in the Mac Modification forum. There are a lot of technically minded people who often deal with this kind of thing.

Good luck and hopefully you'll post your results to the Modification forum with photos.
