What's this X61 part?

#1 Post by TheForgottenKing » Sat Mar 09, 2019 7:46 pm

tl;dr got a battery for X61 and suddenly board blew. Is it the battery or not? Who knows? Updates soon.

Anyway, main question. Was disassembling X61 and ripped this off the LCD cable. What does it do?

Pics wayy to big.
Thinkpad4by3's Law of the Universe.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.

It looks like the Hall effect sensor that functions as the lid open/close switch.

Looks like that'll be a new LCD cable for me
