My ‘book is broke

The display on my Powerbook’s packed up. Why do these things always happen when you’re broke?

Update, 28 Sept

Oh dear. After much Googling it seems pretty obvious that the fault is an inverter board, but speaking to my local Apple Centre it’s much less straightforward than that. I have to drop the ‘book into them and after three to five days, they’ll be able to tell me if it’s the inverter or not. If it is, they’ll order one, which takes three to five days. Once it turns up, the actual fitting is an hour (at £60 per hour), but they need three to five days to get round to it. Just as well I don’t use the ‘book every day for work!
