Upgrading T430 HD+ screen to 1080

#1 Post by thinking_of_pads » Tue Sep 17, 2019 5:51 am

Please help me upgrade my T430 screen from 1600x900 to 1080p.
I have ordered the two following items (screen + kit) from ebay.
The screen turns on but only the backlight and it just stays black.
I am not sure why this is happening.
I can provide links to the screen and kit.

Upgrade Kit:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-1920X1080- ... 2749.l2649

Screen:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/1920-1080-14-0 ... 2749.l2649

I don't know if the screen or the kit is the problem.
Also if you have any reliable ebay vendors to buy from, please let me know.

Please help.

Thank you

Hmm, I can't speak for the controller. Most of us have here the one from qstore.
But I guess it's the same design, probably stolen from Majestic..

Anyway, the screen you bought is for 99% not the genuine "B140HAN01.3". It is a one of the "Compatible" screen. It's written in the description.
My guess is that the controller is not compatible with the "compatible" screen.

The principle is the same. All of them are LVDS video signals converted into EDP video signals. But what I said is that the Chip and design are not the same .
You can check two kit from e-qstore and RMSMajestic item.

1) For thinkpad T420 T430 : https://www.ebay.com/itm/372318133135

2) For thinkpad T420s T430s : https://www.ebay.com/itm/372318139616
