Nitro uses stock cables from x240/50/60/70, won't help much finding longer ones. The only working solution I found so far are the extensions. They need to be HQ-LED30-156, 30 pin to 30 pin.

Hello, !
Thank you very much everyone for your effort.
It is very much appreciated. Those of us who follow your teachings thank you.

I have all the material to install a 13.3 screen on thinkpad x230.
I have bought the Taobao kit. Where can I find the instructions for welding?
I can't find them in Taobao.


A BIOS chip has also come with the kit. Is it necessary to install it? Does it have any advantages?

I would appreciate some help. !
Thank you.!

Solder the smallest wire you can get on the 3rd capacitor from the right (* in this picture). Pass that wire through the board, solder it on the pad just below it, solder the rest.
Bios is probably pre-patched with advanced menu, wifi whitelist removed and LVDS (old integrated display) disabled.

Thanks boutch55555,

Little motherboard soldered. Thinkpad stars. Windows 10 ok.
But... I can not manage Lcd backlight, its fixed. B133HAN04.6 used.
Is there any wrong welding?
Any ideas?
Thanks! :(

Hey,
so I've got this chinese mod kit installed, panel SAMSUNG LTN133HL10-201 (at least should be)
However there are some display artifacts - horizontal colored lines flickering, mostly in the central area (column) of the LCD: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=crOH4t4rwAo
Any idea what could be causing this? The soldering looks okay, at least when I apply light pressure on the PCB, there is no change on the LCD. Also wiggling with the cable does not make any difference.
Faulty panel? Or could it be damage on the motherboard (some capacitor etc)?

I got those once and it was caused by the solders. In your install manual that would be the L0 and L1 pairs.
