WQHD 1440p board for t420/t430 NON-S available on ebay!

#1 Post by t420poklop » Tue Jun 25, 2019 3:46 pm

I have been waiting for this moment for years. Finally, I found some seller¨who offers WQHD kit for t420/t420, which allows to connect for example B140QAN01.5.
Did anybody tried it? Any flickering issues?

Very late reply, but I wanted to add a note here for anyone looking. I tried the new WQHD kit sold by "e-qstore" on eBay, and was unable to get it working with my LP140QH2-SPB1. It simply displayed the backlight, but no image. The exact same screen worked perfectly with the Javi-Jie kit. If anyone can confirm that my experience was likely a fluke, I'd be willing to give the kit another shot, otherwise I'll wait to see if RMSMajestic releases anything in the future.

I will say that the seller was very helpful. We tried to get it working, but they accepted a return in the end.

That's disappointing. I'm using a B140QAN01.1 that has worked both in a T430s with the Javi-jie kit and this T420 with the e-qstore kit.

flynnp:
Not good to hear it does not work. Can you please specify seller you bought the LP140QH2-SPB1 from? Was it genuine screen or it was some noname "replacement" screen?
I plan to buy WQHD mod from e-qstore and pair it with LP140QH2-SPB1 or B140QAN01.1 from some seller

Hi,
I am in the same boat and might have ordered already an LP140QH2-SPB1 if it was not for this thread :/

There is another source for the converter kit on Aliexpress (B2CQSHOP): https://www.aliexpress.com/item/33010851834.html
I suspected that they are related to the ebay seller because of the watermarks and generals layout of pictures and they confirmed that.

Also, I have asked them for recommendations regarding panel sources but they "don't know who sells genuine LP140QH2-SPB1 panels".
However, since the QH2 is named explicitly as supported I assume that a genuine one would work with the converter and that flynnp got something else but it's of course still risky to try...

Edit: I have ordered one and will report back in February how it went.

Hi folks,

Purchased my screen from this listing:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/223452260511

I'd be very, very surprised if this was not a genuine panel. Although I am no expert, I was very weary of getting a fake. I confirmed with the seller that I was getting the genuine model, and not a compatible one before purchasing. I looked the screen over closely when it arrived, and especially after I got it working. I have to say, the screen looks superb. If it is a fake, it was still well worth the money. If it weren't for the Javi-Jie kit working so well, I wouldn't be so confident.

Again, it could just be bad luck on my part.
