Dark spot on the display T430

#1 Post by SylVestrini » Sun Mar 31, 2019 11:26 am

Hello fellas,

A while ago I bought a second hand T430 (1366x768 TN display) and recently noticed a dark spot on the display. It is mainly visible from the angle the picture below is taken and on black/dark screen. When I am in front of the laptop I see nothing wrong, no matter whether the display is dark or light. When a lot of side light is coming from the window that is on the left of my desk it might become slightly visible, when I move to the side and when the screen is black or very dark. Any ideas what this might be and if possible to fix?

Probably display damage. I'd recommend doing the FHD IPS mod anyway.
