Re: t460 - no lcd backlight

OK, All is well. Apparently it didn't like that I had a second screen attached via hdmi. Unplugged it and had a nice brigh Lenovo on the screen. The screen looks much better than the original. I got it from laptopscreen.com. Thanks again for all of your assistance.

Re: t460 - no lcd backlight

I installed a new LCD. Now, I see nothing, not even with a flashlight. Is it possible that the t460 does not support FHD? I did see some discussions that FHD may not be supported unless you have the proper cable. Does that mean that the LCD will not light up at all, or that the higher resolution is ...

Re: t460 - no lcd backlight

Re-seated the connectors, same result. Any suggestions for a good source for a replacement screen? A lot of them pop up and I'm sure some sources are better than others. This is one that I found. https://www.laptopscreen.com/English/model/Lenovo/THINKPAD%20T460%2020FN%20SERIES/ Found another for $29...

Re: t460 - no lcd backlight

Thanks for the reply. The fuse tests fine with continuity setting on meter. The backlight just quit working. It's my sons laptop and it has seen a bit of abuse I'm sure. He said it was acting funny for a while before it quit. It was new in 2016. I was hoping it would be something simple.

t460 - no lcd backlight

Have a T460 with mb Nm-A581. Screen is black, but flashlight shows that there is something there. Works fine when plugged into another display. There are three fuses near the LCD connector on the opposite side. F6 has a P on it. F4 has no marking and F7 has a white dot. I think F7 might be for the c...
