Re: T420s/T430s WQHD - Install/troubleshoot/Picture thread

Thanks RealBlackStuff, I'll check it out when I get the chance. For now something is definitely wrong. The screen has been working fine for a week, but to double check the model on the sticker I took it out of the bezel without disconnecting it, being careful not to stress the cable too much. After...

Re: T420s/T430s WQHD - Install/troubleshoot/Picture thread

Last week I received the b140qan01.5 panel I ordered and immediately installed it. The install is pretty straight forward, though the routing of the edp cable needs some attention as to not put any unnecessary stress on it, and everything went fine. Yesterday I was checking speccy and I noticed the...

Re: T420s/T430s WQHD - Install/troubleshoot/Picture thread

I am having issues, too. Laptop: T430s Error: Display turns on. But there are just a few stripes on the screen, cannot read anything. What I tried: reconnecting the cables several times, making sure that the cables have a strong connection. I believe that it could be caused the eDP cable (maybe I t...

Re: T420s/T430s WQHD - Install/troubleshoot/Picture thread

I did the same, even including discharging the caps (after doing it a couple of times it kind of became a habit). I just don't know how fragile the connections from the lcd's pcb to the panel are, so I'm a bit worried about having somehow wrecked the screen (though I've been pretty careful with it)....

Re: T420s/T430s WQHD kits pre-order

Got it off German ebay from ftdlcd. https://www.ebay.de/itm/14-QHD-LED-LCD-Display-Screen-Panel-Ersatzteil-B140QAN01-5-2560x1440/222799608880 Although it is listed as B140QAN01.5 or compatible, so it was a bit of a gamble getting that one. Thanks! I've started a google spreadsheet to sum up all the...

Here's a link to some pictures as well as a video showing off the superbly stable viewing angles. https://nx.treffenstaedt.de/index.php/s/SSty1ELJZdQQ4pF I ended up only using the top screws and relying on the bezel to keep the display stable, which seems to be fine for now. I will update if proble...

Re: T420s/T430s WQHD kits pre-order

I think it's supposed to be LP140QH1-SPB3, though I can't seem to find -SPB3 specifically on panelook: http://www.panelook.com/modelsearch.php ... d=LP140QH1.
