“Apple Computer Inc. said Wednesday that it launched a three-year, worldwide repair program for certain of its iBook notebook computers that can have problems with their internal or external display monitors,” Duncan Martell reports for Reuters. “‘We have determined that a small number of iBooks introduced in 2002 have a display problem caused by a component failure on the logic board,’ said Phil Schiller, head of worldwide product marketing for Apple in a statement emailed to Reuters. Apple declined to comment on the exact number of iBooks affected.”
“Cupertino, California-based Apple said it will repair these components for free and offer a full refund for customers who have already paid for the repair. Apple will pay for shipping costs, the company said. The program began Wednesday and applies to iBooks with serial numbers in a range of UV220XXXXXX to UV318XXXXXX and that were manufactured between May 2002 and April 2003,” Martell reports.
