1080 Screen Replacement T430

#1 Post by liynus » Mon Sep 07, 2020 7:31 pm

Just got a T430.
Interested in 1080 replacement.
I currently have the low end screen not the 1400x900 screen.
Yes it sucks.

Debating between easy 1400x900 HD+ upgrade.

Or ordering from AliExpress with
the LED cable upgrade
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32836668337.html

I heard some issues with flickering and lower power states in the battery hampering this upgrade.

Wanted to get opinion from people who have done it already.
Still worth it, or should I just get 1400x900 HD+ upgrade.

Any advice on screens that are actively being sold?

I've done this mod on six different units and never had flickering problems.
I always buy the screens used, it is significantly cheaper and you tend to know exactly what item you are getting as opposed to a fake or "compatible" but not really screen. I ordered my latest B140HAN01.1 for $35 shipped on eBay.

The flickering was with the early LVDS-EDP converter chip kits circa 2015/2016 from Javi-Jie through RMSMajestic. It seems different groups of resourceful individuals/entities found ways to overcome those challenges more recently and have been selling adapter boards that are much less prone to the issues.
