Led stripe for T60 display

#1 Post by gaelga » Fri Jan 12, 2018 5:11 pm

Hi,
Someone manage to add LED backlight to the T60/61 display ? I didn't found any information about it sorry if the answer is obvious.

Some people use the x60 led stripe (viewtopic.php?f=29&t=124302) but, it's design for 12.1 display (?)
What about libreboot compatibility (should work)

Thanks.

The link you provided is a perfect starting point for you. Those led kits are available for 14 and 15 inch T60 panels too, in fact I bought two kits from Monty for my T60, when the original ccfl dies.
Laptops after the 4:3 aspect ratio era are non-existent to me.

I believe xiphmont is the owner of https://people.xiph.org/~xiphmont/think ... ight.shtml ? If so then yes, he is still making them. I was in touch with him before Christmas to order couple sets for my ThinkPads. There is a waiting queue, as he makes them per order.

Try to message him here on this forum, I remember when I messaged him through his website, all my e-mails went to his spam folder.

His name here is xiphmont, if you messaged him here, I am pretty sure he will get back to you soon.
