    • Pull the keyboard release tabs toward you and lift up on the keyboard until it pops free.

    • If the keyboard does not come free, use a small flathead screwdriver to turn the keyboard locking screw 180 degrees in either direction and try again. The locking screw is in between the F5 and F6 keys and is a clear piece of plastic.

    • Flip the keyboard over, away from the screen, and rest it face-down on the trackpad area.

    • Remove the four silver Phillips screws that secure the RAM shield.

  8. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Sleep Light Replacement: passo 8, imagem 1 %32
    • Grasp the metal bracket on top of the RAM shield and pull upward to remove the shield.

  9. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Sleep Light Replacement: passo 9, imagem 1 %32
    • Pull the keyboard cable up from the logic board, holding the cable as close to the connector as possible.

    • Make sure that you reconnect the keyboard cable before replacing the RAM shield.

  10. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Sleep Light Replacement, Lower Case: passo 10, imagem 1 %32
    • Use a pin (or anything you like) to remove the three rubber feet from the lower case.

  11. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Sleep Light Replacement: passo 11, imagem 1 %32
    • Remove the three newly-revealed Phillips screws.

  12. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Sleep Light Replacement: passo 12, imagem 1 %32
    • Use a spudger or small flathead screwdriver to pry up the three metal rings that housed the rubber bumpers.

  13. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Sleep Light Replacement: passo 13, imagem 1 %32
    • Remove the three hex screws using a T8 Torx screwdriver (or Allen screws using an Allen key if these are used).

    • The shorter screw is in the center of the computer.

  14. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Sleep Light Replacement: passo 14, imagem 1 %32
    • Remove the two Phillips screws on either side of the battery contacts.

  15. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Sleep Light Replacement: passo 15, imagem 1 %32
    • Breathe deeply. Trying times are ahead, but we promise the lower case does come off.

    • Push the thin rims of the lower case surrounding the battery compartment in, bending them past the tabs, and then lift up to free that corner of the lower case.

  16. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Sleep Light Replacement: passo 16, imagem 1 %32
    • There is a slot on the wall of the battery compartment that locks the lower case in place. Use a small flathead screwdriver to pry out the slot's lower rim and pull up on the lower case to free the slot from the tabs holding it.

    • Be careful not to break this clip!

  17. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Sleep Light Replacement: passo 17, imagem 1 %32
    • Run a spudger along the seam between the lower case and upper case on the front of the computer to free the tabs locking the lower case. Pull up on the lower case and continue to use the spudger as necessary until you hear three distinct clicks.

  18. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Sleep Light Replacement: passo 18, imagem 1 %32
    • Continue to run the spudger around the front, right corner. There are two tabs on the port side of the computer, one near the front corner and one near the sound-out port.

  19. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Sleep Light Replacement: passo 19, imagem 1 %32
    • There are three tabs over the optical drive that must be released before the lower case can come off. Slide the spudger into the lower case above the optical drive and run it toward the back of the computer until you hear three distinct clicks.

  20. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Sleep Light Replacement: passo 20, imagem 1 %32
    • Once the front and sides of the lower case are free, turn the computer so that the back is facing you and pull the lower case up and toward you until the back tabs pop free (it may be helpful to jiggle the case up and down).

  21. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Sleep Light Replacement: passo 21, imagem 1 %32
    • Remove the small greasy springs with white plastic caps from either side of the battery contacts.

  22. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Sleep Light Replacement, Bottom Shield: passo 22, imagem 1 %32
    • Remove the following 10 screws from the bottom shield:

    • Six 3 mm Phillips

    • Three 7.5 mm Phillips

    • One 14 mm Phillips

  23. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Sleep Light Replacement: passo 23, imagem 1 %32
    • Lift the bottom shield off.

  24. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Sleep Light Replacement, DC-In Board: passo 24, imagem 1 %32
    • Remove the single Phillips screw securing the DC-In board.

  25. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Sleep Light Replacement: passo 25, imagem 1 %32
    • Disconnect the DC-In cable from the logic board.

  26. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Sleep Light Replacement: passo 26, imagem 1 %32
    • Deroute the cable from around the optical drive, removing tape as necessary, and angle the DC-In board out of its compartment.

  27. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Sleep Light Replacement, Upper Case: passo 27, imagem 1 %32
    • Remove the following 11 screws from the bottom of the computer:

    • Three 3 mm Phillips around the battery compartment. (Some models may only have two screws.)

    • Three 4.5 mm Phillips along the optical drive bezel. (a magnetic screwdriver may help to lift these screws out)

    • One 11 mm Phillips in the lower right corner. (if present)

    • Four 14.5 mm Phillips.

  28. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Sleep Light Replacement: passo 28, imagem 1 %32
    • We recommend placing the computer on a soft cloth from this point on to prevent damaging the logic board.

    • Turn over the computer and open it.

    • Remove the 2 Phillips screws (3mm) from the edges of the keyboard area.

    • Remove the 4 mm Phillips screw from the lower left corner.

  29. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Sleep Light Replacement: passo 29, imagem 1 %32
    • Before you can yank the upper case off, you must disconnect the trackpad connector, the blue and white power cable, and speaker cable as described in the next steps. Be especially careful with these cables; never pull directly on the cables, but use a spudger to pry up the connector directly.

    • Lift the upper case and use a spudger or your finger to disconnect the trackpad connector hidden beneath the white plastic tab. Due to model variatons your trackpad connector may be different than the one pictured.

  30. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Sleep Light Replacement: passo 30, imagem 1 %32
    • Carefully lift the upper case about half of an inch and move it so that you can access the power and speaker cables.

  31. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Sleep Light Replacement: passo 31, imagem 1 %32
    • The connectors at the ends of the cables are attached very firmly to the sockets on the logic board. Pulling directly on the cable will either separate the cable from its connector or the socket from the logic board.

    • Lift the upper case enough to disconnect the blue and white power cable from the logic board. Using your fingernails or a dental pick, carefully pry the connector from its socket. Make sure you're pulling only on the connector and not on the socket.

  32. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Sleep Light Replacement: passo 32, imagem 1 %32
    • Carefully disconnect the multicolored speaker cable from the logic board. As before, make sure you're pulling only on the connector and not on the socket.

  33. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Sleep Light Replacement, Sleep Light: passo 33, imagem 1 %32
    • Remove the single Phillips screw securing the sleep light to the metal framework.

  34. iBook G4 14" 933 MHz-1.33 GHz Sleep Light Replacement: passo 34, imagem 1 %32
    • Turn the computer over and disconnect the sleep light from the logic board, removing tape as necessary.
