The auction on ebay has ended and I cannot find the kit on the internet. Is this still on sale somewhere else e.g. through paypal as stated in the OP?

Is there any reason why one of these wouldn't work with T4xx LVDS output and B140HAN01.3 eDP input, provided that you manage to fit it inside, find/make proper cables and provide proper power supply?

SOCKET IS different. 30pin eDP on B140HAN01.3 vs 40 pin on WQHD

This is a really amazing effort, and I'm glad someone stepped up to do it.

I think I read something on the first page about 'X1 Carbon.' Are any of these screens available for my Gen. 1 X1 Carbon?

I have a 1600x900 screen, so any of those would be an improvement.

I can get a WQHD panel with, according to the vendor, the following data:

Code: Select all

S11FCFA2BXFA6 
SD10G56672 505 
FRU 00HN878 
VVX14T058J016092T 007051 A
Can anyone tell if this will likely work with the 3K upgrade kit?

Update, to answer the question myself: According to the spreadsheet with compatible panels, the display VVX14T058J00 is incompatible. So under the assumption that difference in model number is due to a typo, the above panel most likely will not work with the kit. I am glad that I didn’t buy it.

Here's a link to some pictures as well as a video showing off the superbly stable viewing angles.

I ended up only using the top screws and relying on the bezel to keep the display stable, which seems to be fine for now. I will update if problems do arise.
Got the exact same panel, used from a vendor called ENLCD. But it doesn’t work for me with the adapter that RMSMajestic sent me.

Here is a video that shows what’s happening when starting my T420s: (temporary link, valid for up to 24h / would like to upload it here, but that doesn’t seem possible)

Later I put my SSD into the machine and booted Windows 7. The boxy flickering continued, and as far as I could tell there were brief flashes of the Windows start screen showing up in fractions of the screen.

Any idea what could be the issue?

Got the device a week ago. Many thanks to the RMSMajestic for quick shippment and great quality feedback! Definitely worth buying.

Already tested about 5 different lcd models from AUO and LG, will add some results at troubleshoot thread later.

Have same result (half black/grey half white, distortions and flickering) with damaged B140QAN01.1 panel. Second B140QAN01.1 that local seller have in stock works fine. So my guess you have damaged screen. It is worth checking connectors tho.

I reseated the connectors, same result. If it is a damaged screen, that would be bad. I received the panel two and a half weeks ago from China by DHL Express. Even if ENLCD offers to send me another one, I guess I would have to pay for DHL Express shipping again. And for international shipping, after countless bad experiences, I only use fully tracked services like DHL Express, UPS, etc. The adapter took more than three weeks, without tracking. I already thought it got lost in the mail.

The HD+ panel in my T420s is broken, with the right side partially black (have a picture, but no way to attach it here). I operate it now at 1440×900 px resolution. A replacement would be nice.

I had a good experience with this matte 2560x1440 display and this seller. It is the actual display ordered, not a like- or compatible part. It looks great. I drilled out the screw and tab holes so it fit properly, but otherwise everything was plug and play. I went with DHL and had it in less than a week.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/B140QAN01-5-14 ... 3320843389

I did replace the thermal pad for the chip sitting near the center under the keyboard and I blew the entire thing out with compressed air. Unfortunately, I grabbed the HDD/SSD caddy screw by mistake and now it's stripped in the center keyboard hole. My hdd caddy is held in place courtesy of some scotch tape.

The display is pretty amazing. It looks very out-of-place in such an old and well-used T420s chassis.

Can someone send me a picture of the back side of a working B140QAN01.1? That would be great!

@mithodin ? @Maxzep ?

Hi RMSMajestic,

Just want to make sure since you replied on 23rd feb. There are no more kit like this being sold ? I'm looking for something like this for my T440P, is it compatible ? Does anyone know of a WQHD mod for a T440P ?

Thank you!
