X1 (2011, 1291) alternative LCD display?

#1 Post by nar001 » Thu Nov 23, 2017 6:12 am

So I see that the X1 non carbon has a 40 pins LVDS connection, any way to get at least a 1600x900 display? The 1366x768 resolution really bothers me, and I can't find much about that specific model online. Thanks!

The X1 uses the LP133WH2-TLM5

Here is an IPS 1600x900 13.3" LVDS with 40 pins screen: LP133WD2-SLB1

I don't know if the pinouts match...
Also important: the X1 LCD is glued to a glass-front. Can that be (easily) removed? No idea.
See (original) pictures here: https://www.amazon.com/LENOVO-HYBRID-LP ... B01N0Y0DQY

Just in case: the -SLB1 is a.o. available on eBay from win0win, a reliable seller. https://www.ebay.com/itm/291853596884
Ask him first to confirm you'll get the exact screen you're asking for.
Shipments from him (China to US) usually don't take more than about 8-9 days ("happened" 3 times to me).

Thanks for the quick reply! I looked around too, and found these myself. But I'll check the ones you linked! http://www.panelook.com/modelcompare.ph ... 6743,15652

I can basically use any dual channel LVDS cable right? They should work?

I don't know about all LVDS cables being the same or not, they probably are.
But you must check first if the pinouts are the same!
That's your homework...
