Thinkpad X220 Screen Problems

#1 Post by ThnkpadsAreTheBest » Sat Jun 30, 2018 1:41 pm

Greetings everyone,

I have been experiencing problems with my Thinkpad X220 screen. I started off with the stock screen, however, issues with distorted pixels on the left hand side of the screen forced me to order a new IPS screen from laptopscreens.com. After one week of using the new screen, I started having problems again. This time however, the issue with distorted pixels was in the center of the screen.

I really love this laptop, but I hate how it randomly starts having issues with pixelation (sample picture below): Any ideas on what the probable cause could be?

This is not exact enough. There are different FRUs, and panel models. Everest/Aida64 will show you the exact panel type.

In any case, could it be a problem with the LCD cable? I recall it's not part of the LCD assembly.

FRU: 04W3919 it is the LG display. I am not sure what else you need. The original monitor and the replacement are exactly the same.

This is generally enough. It means it's a LP125WH2(SL)(B3).

In any case, I would investigate the cable as a possible cause of problems.
