All I know of is Tekserve:  http://www.tekserve.com/

There are a few common problems with the G3 iBooks, including a bad design 
that causes the video chip to come a bit loose with flexing of the case. 
Symptom is garbled video that can be altered by pushing on the bottom of 
the case.

What are the symptoms?  If it's the mainboard, you're looking at some 
serious cash...
