T430s indicator LEDs not working

#1 Post by matthew28845 » Tue Apr 02, 2019 11:18 pm

A few weeks ago, I noticed that the indicator LEDs on the screen bezel of my T430s were not working - all 4 of them were always off. Would it be worth it to seek out a new LED board, or is it more likely the issue is elsewhere, like a blown fuse or a bad cable?

Bad cable is a more common failure compared to the LED board.
