Digitizer x61t

#1 Post by maxximillion » Sat Apr 07, 2018 10:26 am

Hey there hope y'all are well! I've been having a problem with the digitizer on my x61t. When I put my screen into tablet mode I lose my touch responsiveness. Doesn't seem to be a software issue, when I very slowly lower the screen I can keep the digitizer responding but it's a process. I think the hinge is getting worn and loose. I'm a little nervous to replace it. Does anyone have experience replacing those? Or knows whether or not it would help much?

You probably need to replace the LCD cable (which carries the digitizer's signals) as well.

That makes sense, thank you for your help!! I ordered the 93P4507 LCD cable and a hinge today just in case! I am very excited for them to arrive please let me know if anyone has any advice on the disassembly and assembly.
Thanks again!! C:
