Would an LCD panel from an old T40 work on my ThinkPad T20?

#1 Post by karl80038 » Fri May 19, 2017 10:28 am

Is it possible to replace a worn LCD panel on my T20 with a working one from the T40? If that's possible, do I have to replace anything else besides the panel on my T20?
Anyways, thanks for reading,
Karl

All 14.1" T/A2x/3x use 20pin ccfl connector
all 14.1" T4x/6x use 30pin ccfl connector
You should be fine for getting a 14.1" display from T/A2x/3x which is better off for you to find on this forum or those Chinese sources such as Taobao, or pick one from theft store
