Will 46L2245 13.3 XGA fit in a 600E?

Hi, I bought a 600e on ebay for $25 with a dead display, and was wondering if this panel will work in a 13.3" 600E. Thanks. :D

Re: X220 TN panel dull colors no more

On my T430 I found that lowering the brightness slightly, as well as increasing the contrast and saturation by a small amount really make the display feel SLIGHTLY better. It's still nothing close the the TN even in the 1st gen X1 Carbon, but it's still an improvement and it's free :)

Re: T410 shutting down when heatsink pressed

Does it only do this when the heatsink is pressing down on it, or when anything presses on that part of the MB?
- My first assumption would be maybe a damaged CPU socket, but it could be virtually anything.

Re: T430 display latch has to be manually closed?

Ok, so I figured out what was wrong with the display latch, but I'm going to have to order a new palmrest for something else wrong with the display latch. What was wrong: It turns out that on the latch on the left side, there is a long piece of plastic / metal in the middle of the latch that was ben...

Re: T430 display latch has to be manually closed?

There's a spring inside that can get bound up or stuck. It's unusual for it to do so on its own (I've had oopsies when reassembling systems where it gets stuck and need to re-seat the top cover) Should've mentioned that this started happening after removing the palmrest to get at the CPU fan. I'll ...

T430 display latch has to be manually closed?

Hello there. I have a T430 and I have noticed that the display latch will be stuck 2/3 to the right in the open position, and I have to manually close the display latch after the laptop is opened. Is there anything I can do about this? It seems that the issue is stemming from the left side of the la...
