X60 XGA Tablet Screen On X60(s)/X61(s)

#1 Post by owen_r61 » Sun Oct 29, 2017 4:23 pm

Is it possible to fit a Toshiba LTD121KC9B screen, XGA, from X60-Tablet, into an X61/X61s screen housing? I know that the cable conectors are the same, but the pinout is different. Does anyone make the adapters or adapter cables anymore? As I understand it, these are high quality screens and I would use it for the Daylight LED Kits offered by another forum member.

I've removed the digitizer from the Toshiba LTD121KC9B. I've also found a source, in China, for the adapter cables.

Which 'adapter cables' did you pick? I've wanted to do this swap for years but never know which cable I'd need.

The only ones that I've found so far are on Ali-Express. If you search for "thinkpad SXGA+" then three items pop up and it's one of those. I haven't bought them yet, because I still haven't heard back from the guy that's making the Daylight LED Kits. Everything hinges on that and if he no longer makes these kits available then it's "game over." The 1400x1050 screen (SXGA+) would be great to have, but I've got this nice view angle 1024x768 screen and that will be good enough for me.

Monty still makes those kits, but AFAIK in his spare time, so it can take a few weeks.

The cable on Aliexpress you're referring to is correct.

Thanks for your reply and thanks for verifying that those are the good cable-adapters. I wrote to Monty about 2-weeks ago, but I still have not received a reply.
