WTB: parts for T42p 15"/T61 14"wide/T500

#1 Post by sebileis » Mon Apr 01, 2019 10:22 am

Hello everyone! I have a few ThinkPad projects that I'm currently working on, and I need some parts for them. I could easily buy all of the parts I need on eBay, but I wanted to check the forums first to see if any fellow ThinkPadders are looking to get rid of some parts. So here's what I'm looking for:

15" T42p:
Keyboard in new to decent condition (I have a 14" T40-series keyboard I can trade if someone's interested!)
Fan assembly
9-cell battery with good charge
DVD drive

14" widescreen T61: No longer need since all 3 T61's I have are failed Nvidia systems :( Now I have some extra T61 parts if anyone is interested! :)
screen/screen assembly (preferably 1440x900 but I don't care too much)
6 or 9-cell battery with good charge
Fan assembly
HDD cover/caddy


T500:
screen/screen assembly/display cable (I'll still take screens if they're 1680x1050 or 1920x1200)
6 or 9-cell battery with good charge
Fan assembly
Palmrest (fingerprint reader is preferred but I'm not too picky)

I would prefer to buy from someone in the US due to the exorbitant prices and hassles of international shipping, but if the price is right I may be open to a seller outside the US. I can pay through PayPal or Apple Pay, and if you are in the Altoona, PA area I could meet locally. I am also open to trades or partial trades, as I have a few other ThinkPads or ThinkPad-related parts I am looking to get rid of. Comment or DM me and tell me what you have!

I have parts for the t42p and will fly to the U.S. in May. I would bring it and ship it with USPS if you wait.
The keyboard is German layout though. Don't have the battery.

I don't know about the keyboard due to it being the German layout, but I'll consider the other parts. If somebody else in the US has the parts then that would be less hassle for you, so we'll play it by ear.

T42p: I have the DVD, US-layout keyboard, possibly fan, battery (ies)
T61 wide: battery with decent charge, genuine (there were 4 or 7-cell), maybe fan assy as well
T500: both 6 and 9 cell genuine batteries with high charge, maybe all the rest but I need to check (got rid of most of those parts lately). Note: there were no LED WSXGA+ or WUXGA displays in this model. CCFL only, and WUXGA was actually pretty dim.
Too many thinkpads not enough time!

Hi,

I've got a brand new fan assembly for the T61, FRU 42w2462. Since I'm located in Germany, I could send it to WarhawkCZ, maybe he can take it to the US.

I have everything you need for the 14.1" 16:10 T61. If interested send me an offer, and I can send pics as well. I can send an entire machine you can use for parts as well, if you'd rather go that route. Since you're only a couple hours' drive from here zone based USPS Priority shipping should be only $7 or $8 for a complete machine...

I appreciate the offer, but since you're located in Poland I think I'll pass. Shipping would most likely cost more than what these are worth. Thank you though!

Shipping is $12-15 for <2kg package.
For bigger ones, yes, it easily hits $25-30 mark.

I will consider the keyboard and fan if I can't find it from somebody in the U.S. $12-15 shipping is still a lot for a small package.

I think I can offer a 15" T43 (Or its parts, compatible with T42p) in unknown condition as of now, and a 15" R51 in perfectly working condition except for the ThinkLight (With a factory 9-cell battery, but lasts like half of original charge). Shipping is also gonna be a problem for here, but I guess it's an offer to consider.

I'll think about it. It still would be expensive since it's from Canada but it would be cheaper than Europe! :P

I have batteries for t500, $25 and up for genuine Lenovo batteries. I also have genuine NOS motherboards to fix your t61. Nvidia or Intel. Send me a PM if interested.
