Full disclosure: MacResQ is a PowerPage.org sponsor. Starting with 1998-model Wall Street computers, PowerBook users have been plagued by impressions left on the LCD by fingertip oils from the keyboard. As MacResQ comments: “This in itself would not have been a big deal, if not for the fact that our finger tips are covered with oils and when we type we transfer these oils to the keys of our keyboards. Herein lies the problem: when that stunning and bright LCD screen comes into contact with your keyboard, the oils from your fingertips get transferred to the screen and leave unsightly marks. If you clean your PowerBook screen regularly with a product like iKlear, these marks usually come off. However, if you don’t clean your screen on a regular basis, these oils will penetrate the ultra-thin protective cover on the screen known as the polarizer. Once these marks penetrate your polarizer, they are there for good and impact the quality of your screen and your PowerBook. Our PowerBookResQ Technicians have been working on a fix for this problem and we’re pleased to give you a sneak preview here this week. If you have a G3 PowerBook with a horrible looking screen due to the problem I’ve described above, we can help. Rather than pay $500-$800 for an entirely new screen, our Technicians can now replace your polarizer an give your screen a new lease on life for just $299.00!

”This service will not be available on our website until next week; you’ll need to call 1-866-Mac-Repair to schedule a repair until that time. Now, what about G4 PowerBook owners that are having the same problem? You’ll be happy to know that we expect to begin the polarizer replacement for G4 PowerBooks within the next two months. Here’s all the details on the new repair:

”PowerBook G3 Polarizer Replacement is compatible with the following PowerBooks:

PowerBook G3 Wallstreet: 233, 250, 266, 292 and 300 Mhz systems
