query of extending warranty

Hi,

I have a T60p. It originally came with a 3Yr onsite warranty and the warranty is going to expire in Late August, and I'm planing to extend it. Here is my query: Is a 2Yr Warranty the maximum warranty period I can extend for this laptop or can I extend the warranty endlessly?

Thank you
Eric

Hi, Wow that was quick - you found an LCD locally? Heh, either that or it must have arrived using some kind of jet. Yes i have seen that thing too with the HV150UX1 - your display looks as it is supposed to. The really stupid thing about it all is that it doesn't violate the 89 degrees viewing angl...

Re: Order LCD panel directly from Lenovo

I actually have a new (from IBM) T60 UXGA LCD assembly. It is the entire unit - frame, hinges, cable, antenna wires, etc. It comes without the clearplate stickers, which you would need to move from your original LCD. PM me if interested. (much easier to install than bare panel) Hi, you've got PM

Hi, I've got my new AFFS screen installed on my T60p, but I found that if I look at the screen from the upper left or upper right position, the color becomes significantly different from that of viewing from the front of the screen.

Re: Order LCD panel directly from Lenovo

Their policy is still not to ship outside the US, just like everything else they sell. You can do the replacement yourself, but it will void the warranty. Are you sure the damage is not covered under warranty? In order to make sure, you will need to phone them and get them to create a case. If they...

Re: Order LCD panel directly from Lenovo

Thank you for all of your responses and advice.
Actually I could ask the seller to ship the item to my relative who leaves in San Francisco if I could find a right one in the U.S :)
I'm still trying to look for one here in China. But it seems most of sellers don't have any more of these in stock. :(

Order LCD panel directly from Lenovo

Hi,
The UXGA LCD on my T60p was damaged, is it possible to order the screen directly from Lenovo U.S and I do the replacement myself? My machine is still under warranty, so do I have to pay for the screen or is it free of charge?
THanks

I think so,these "servicable used parts" are being used circularly.

I think the T6x series with "p" suffix all reserved the space for installing SIM card slot and WWAN card in the future. It is a little bit difficult to install the antenna since it's going though the screen.

laptop graphic Chips are soldered firmly on the mother board. You can't change it unless you change the whole motherboard. And also the current motherboard of the t61p may not support the HD3650 Chip even if you have the equipments and skill to exchange the graphic chips on the board.

Yes,you could replace the Core Duo with a Core 2 Duo Merom processor(T5500,T5600,T7200,T7400 and T7600). They are socket M type, same with the Core Duo. But don't buy those with socket P type,they won't fit T60s originally installed with Core Duo.

Hope Lenovo will soon find out that stop producing 4:3 models is a wrong decision.
I'll keep my T60 with 14.1 SXGA+ as a classical collection rather than selling it if Lenovo no longer provide any 4:3 models in the future. :)
