Good news for iBook owners Apple has extended its logic board repair program. Now iBooks manufactured from May 2001 to October 2003 are covered.
Apple has, for the second time, expanded its coverage of its iBook Logic Board Repair Extension Program. The program will correct certain defects on iBooks manufactured between May 2001 and October 2003, and will reimburse iBook owners for expenses incurred to correct eligible repairs out of warranty as well.
The program was first introduced in January 2004, covering iBook laptops built between May 2002 and April 2003. The repair program was then expanded to cover additional machines made until October 2003 in April. This latest change covers certain iBook models made as far back as May 2001 -- Apple's Web site lists the affected models and their corresponding serial number ranges, so make sure to check out the page to see if your system is eligible.
This program covers:
- Scrambled or distorted video
- Appearance of unexpected lines on the screen
- Intermittent video image
- Video freeze
- Computer starts up to blank screen
