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

I am looking forward to your report. I have installed the LP140QH2-SPB1 in my GF's T420s now. Works fine with the mod kit. It doesn't move horizontally, so I just made four small mounting tabs filling the vertical gap and securing the display in place. Thank you very much for the report with guide ...

Yes, from eBay seller ftdlcd. I plan to mount the display on the last weekend of this month (assuming it arrives in time), will report then.
I am looking forward to your report.

You are right. Do it yourself. Good point. Will do the same then. Did you order the display already?

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

I did not order the LP140QH2-SPB1 yet because the display has no mounting holes :/ Still waiting for the "right" display. I really like that the LP140QH1 is consuming much less energy than the B14QAN01.5. I would like to try the LP140QH2 too because energy consumption is also good and image qality i...

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

Sooo what I've done is purchased the LP140QH1-SPB1 screen from the following seller. https://www.ebay.ca/itm/273094785260 Not wanting to take another risk with the AUO screen, I'm hoping that the LP140QH1 will be fine. Now the waiting game has started yet again... Why you did not choose the LP140QH...

Re: Advice needed on t430s

Thank you very much.

How about the Intel 7260 AC? Did you flash the Bios on your t430s or how did you removed the whitelist?

Re: Advice needed on t430s

Did you really need the 420s palmrest?

My resaerch results was that the T420s does not fit on the T430s base. I thought I am able to put the old Thinkpad keyboard in the T430s with T430s plamrest.

Please clearify Dro.

Thank you very much!

Did anybody test the LP140QH2-SPB1 panel yet? Its the LG-Philips WQHD panel from the X1 Carbon 2017.

Any news on the new X1 Carbon 2018 panels?

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

System after boot:

The connector Backlight ON to the board has 3.3 V and Backlight Ctrl: 3.1 V

I do not know where to measure the EDP connector exactly. Can you mark the spot on a picture please?

Any other ideas. Maybe a faulty board?

Both displays are shown in the settings:

Laptop LVDS1
LGD13 DP3

Multimeter also has shown that the connectors are fine.

There is only no backlight to really see the screen. Where can I look, what can be wrong? Is the sense wire maybe respons...

I tested the old display. Everything works fine with the old non HD display. Backlight is ON :)

FHD still has no backlight :(

Hello, the Rev. 3 board was installed in an i5 X230 yesterday. Everything worked fine with my SPB3 for about 2-3 hours. Very happy!!! Turned my X230 off and the next time I booted my backlight was not working anymore. Put the battery out and booted with AC attached and backlight was working again. O...
