Thanks Eesterherd. The black screen I found to be a display issue with the G4. Drove me nuts cause it worked perfectly at first, then when I decide its a go to shrink wrap everything, tape and close up the HDMI connector, and connect again no picture. At first I suspects wiring. Backlight was always working. I tore all connections, measure voltages, impedance, rebuilt, and nothing. I had a spare beat up iMac isight G5. Took that screen connected and bang working. The only thing different is the G4 screen has this ribbon cable coming from controller to the side of the panel. The G5 screen doesn't. Also when I shut down it goes to this loop of colors before shutting down. Have you seen this before? Did not do this with the G4 screen when it worked. I'm going to take it apart and have a look at the controller board, maybe its some connector. Otherwise replace the screen.
Fantastic... Yes I too have a 24" white. I'm thinking replacing that screen with an LED one.
Yes some iSight G5 LCD's do that annoying color loop when going to sleep or powering off. Too bad about your G4 Panel. I hope you can resolve the issue successfully.
