701C screen scrolling issue

#1 Post by Sunshine701c » Sat Apr 04, 2020 3:01 am

A 701c thinkpad (butterfly keyboard) has come into my possession. It has an issue where the screen scrolls vertically, just like in this video https://youtu.be/4Q36J0jFpBc?list=WL (not my video clearly, but it demonstrates the problem well). I think the ribbon cable connecting the screen to the mobo is the issue, although it might also be the screen. The pn for the cable is 73g7608 and the model number for the screen is sharp lq10d031. If there's ANY place online where i could find the cable, or even the screen+cable that would be very appreciated. any help or advice would be appreciated too, it's my first time posting here.

I have lots of screen cables if you want to try a new one but you are correct to think it might be the screen panel itself and I have no screen panels.
