This is the cable "management" for camera & others. Once you get it out of the way, the panel will sit nicely at the edge of the camera curve, resting on the bottom plastic square.
I'd guess the bleeding has to do with the lid trimming or cables.
Also, congrats on doing a 03. That was a pain, wasn't it ?
Note on serviceability : Take a picture of the pads before you put the screen in. You can slide a flexible metal ruler behind the panel to separate them one by one. My panel was slightly misaligned on the right and I fixed it by lifting it off on 5 of the 10 pads to push the screen down. You could probably remove the whole panel if you don't put too much adhesive and know where it is.
How did you solve the cable length issue when using the W11 screen?
I ordered 3 W15's and they've all arrived as W11's instead, so obviously the connector is on the far side.
Ahhhh I see. So that's what you meant by switchers then.
I ended to just adding in cable to make the original one longer. Works great now. I cut the bezel with a craft knife and metal rule, then finished with a diamond file. I do have a slight light leaky spot where it seems the bezel is pressing too much onto the screen. I'll have a go at that again tomorrow but super happy with the results.
Thanks for the info.
If someone has, like me, the bright idea of flashing the screen to disable adaptive brightness, don't do it. (except if you find a way to take a good backup first)
Even if you did your research for 0DJCP6 part number, that matches the W21 and the 9350, it will just kill the screen.
I have a new one on the way, I'll try to extract an original firmware and patch it back.
W15 from win0win, screen is great
specification on panellook is correct. It's 300mm wide, and 188mm tall, from top to pcb bottom.
Horizontal fit is fine, problem is pcb is too wide to fit between hinges. So it needs to be cut in order to bring panel lower.
I peeled the black tape on one end of pcb, it looks to me I won't get enough space by cutting pcb( there are some connections close to the edge of pcb).
I am thinking to leave the panel higher in the lid. I will have to cut more on the upper bezel, camera modul will go out. And 2mm of lower screen edge is visible (plastic bezel is lower than screen edge)
Boutch do you have any pictures of chinese guys fitting w15?
Thank you all.
EDIT: OK, so on this link, from taobao seller https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=550 ... oSite=main, W15's pcb is already cut, on left and right side(I can post uncut pictures). So it can be cut safely.
The panels fits, but I had to cut pieces from the hinges also. Cutting the screen bezel ended up quite messy, I bought another new one that, once arrived, I will give it to a guy with the right equipment to cut for me.
Screen brightness works out of the box in Debian stretch Xfce. But I will recompile the kernel wit the fhd patch, because on lid close Xfce things that there is another monitor attach and does not suspend the pc.
Edit: the matte layer on the B133HAN04.6 is bit grainy, but overall the screen is really nice.
Looks like it's easier to fit than my panels, less metal to cut at bottom of the lid, no pcb cutting, more room around the webcam.
Are the left & right edges equal ? If you could take pictures of both sides with a ruler (like this) next time you open it, it would be very appreciated.
Tkx for spending the $$$ to test a new screen.
With the classic keyboard mod and nitrocaster 13.3 inch screen, my x230 is the best thing I've ever owned!
