LCD panel part number from WMI or other?

#1 Post by ac427 » Fri Mar 30, 2018 6:09 am

Is it possible to read the LCD panel part number from WMI or another utility, in Windows or Linux to determine the LCD panel part number in the machine?

In Linux, you'll need to find the package that contains the "get-edid" binary. In Debian, it's "read-edid".

When you run get-edid on a terminal window with root privileges, it will dump the raw EDID block from the panel. A good part of it will be gibberish (it's binary data) but there will be a text string near the end.
LCD panels have a fairly predictable naming scheme so it's pretty easy to spot.

(prefix 1-3 letters long)(display size in inches minus the decimal point)(bunch of letters and numbers)

Usual prefixes:
LTN - Samsung
LP - LG-Philips
B - AU Optronics
N - Chimei
LTD - Toshiba
HV or HT - BOE-Hydis


N121X5-L06 (12.1 inch screen from one of my X61 units)

LP125WH2-SLB1 (12.5 inch screen in the X220 I'm typing this post on)

LTN121XJ-L07 (12.1 inch screen from another X61)
Daily driver: X220 4291-C91 i7-2620M

Backup: X220 4291-P79 i5-2520M
Toy: X60F Core Solo U1300
In pieces: two retired but working X61Ts
RIP: 760XD 9546-U9E; X61 7676-A24; and a BOE-Hydis HV121P01-100 in failed SXGA+ mod
