X201s random shutdowns, power on issues

Hi All, I have a X201s which I had kept using for about a 2 years skipping the "fan error" message without major issues. Then it started to do random things.. a) shutdowns on itself and try unsuccessfully restarting on itself (all the lights blinking, I have to unplug to interrupt the cycle) b) does...

Re: LCD panel swap T41p -- "Do not touch white tape" Any health hazard?

Ok, I see the answer to my additional question is already in your message (while the laptop is on).

Re: LCD panel swap T41p -- "Do not touch white tape" Any health hazard?

Thanks a lot for your prompt reply. I was reading some mercury-related stuff and getting worried. As for the "white tape". Everything looks white on the back. Can you explain to me, by the image at 3'55, in the linked video, which is the delicate part? As for the inverter: is this dangerous even in ...

Since the working one has a dimmed LCD panel I decided to attempt to put in it the one of the bricked one which is better, followi...
