t430 screen replacement / inverter?!

#1 Post by hjaqqg » Sun Feb 23, 2020 6:01 am

hey, hope you guys can help me quickly:

i'm planing on buying a t430 w/ broken screen & broken backlight
(tested by the seller with another screen that wouldn't light up either, but stuff was visible when shining a flashlight on it).
since i'd replace the screen of any t430 i'd buy with a fhd one, i figured it's cheaper that way.
now, the seller told me the backlight doesn't work due to a broken inverter. but isn't the original t430 screen led-lit?!
and from what i've been reading inverters are only used w/ ccfl-screens, right?!
so isn't it more likely that the infamous f7 fuse is blown?
does the t430 even have an inverter?!

sry for all the confused questions - i just dont wanna buy a broken laptop i cant fix! ^^'

No inverter. They're likely saying that because they don't know what else to call it.
