Re: Feature Suggestion Thread for the Fan Control Utility

I'm not sure if there is any more development, but I would appreciate time-based (and possibly geolocation based) profile switching. At home, there is absolutely no space for any fan noise, I want calm there. On the other side, at work, i'm usualy drown over by stack of cisco switches, server or any...

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

Now, after resoldering F1 fuse, problem continues - but only with Nitrocaster board, LVDS works correctly. Seems more has been fried, display and/or cable. Or, at worse, ataptor board :evil:

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

Yep, I have found board layout schemes and circuit schematics, it looks to be F2 or F6 fuse. unfortunately on the backside :-( good news is I have spare X220 board, which uses the same fusing, so I will resolder it and let know. EDIT: both F2 and F6 fuses are OK, also getting 3.3V voltage on them. B...

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

Hm, strange. I now have the same problem - no backlight. After I initially installed mod, I checked everything was working 100% - as usualy, this is my third mod. After completion, I found no backlight, image is fine on a dark display. So I checked sense wire, all solderings, all possible shortcuts ...

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

I have the similar issue with my second nitrocaster mod, accidentaly desoldered C137, than the other one when trying to resolder C137. I still have heme ,soldering pads seems to be OK - so my questions are - could this SMD capacitor be damaged by heat? Seems to be ceramic, so could it withstand some...

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

I finally found it!

There was small piece of copper debris fallen inside docking connector. During inspection, it was not visible - hidden by connector dust cover. Cleaned connector by compressed air and my X230 is just better than new, no blinks so far :-)
