Re: Any way to mitigate ripple pattern when swapping LCD backlight strip to LED ?

It's good to know someone else has this issue as well. Do you know of any known ways to fix this? Otherwise I'm just going to try to make an accordion shim and see if that fixes it.

Re: Thinkpad X230 successful upgrade to 13.3 FHD & msata3.0

They don't? I thought the 13.3in screen had to be glued in. Also, what about this paragraph from a different post: > https://www.reddit.com/r/thinkpad/comments/8yirau/meditation_on_133_x230_mod/e2b71j7/ About the thinned rib no longer providing some of the protection... There was also a comment abou...

Re: Thinkpad X230 successful upgrade to 13.3 FHD & msata3.0

Does anyone know of any durability issues with the build? I heard that some of the support and protection for the screen is now gone...

And is the 1080p connector kit compatible with both the 12.1 and 13.3 inch displays?

Re: Any way to mitigate ripple pattern when swapping LCD backlight strip to LED ?

Is there any way to fix that? I'm thinking of putting in an accordion shim to see if that will help, or maybe just try to put them in even looser. Unless that's permanent damage.

Hm, they only really became noticeable after the LED mod, but I can't be certain.

Re: T480 Isopropyl on screen?

I called Lenovo support, and they said it should be fine. Might call them again for a more detailed explanation. Might be with how much isopropyl is used and for how long?

They told me it should be fine, but to not do it again, for whatever that's worth. I'll post an update if I get more info...

X230 screen mod

I'm thinking of either putting in a 12.1" 1080p IPS or a 13.3" 1080p IPS into my x230. It would be nice to get a matte screen too, I'm not sure if there are any 13.3 matte screens... I'd be using it with 100% scaling. The only thing that really concerns me about the 13.3" mod isn't the difficulty, b...

T480 Isopropyl on screen?

Do you guys know of isopropyl damaging the anti-glare coating on T480/470/etc screens, or newer matte thinkpad screens in general? I think I used some isopropyl on mine a while back...

Re: Any way to mitigate ripple pattern when swapping LCD backlight strip to LED ?

What I see is more broad ripples. It's not concentrated at the bottom:

Is that normal? Did I put it in too tightly?

It's not an SXGA screen.
