Replaced screen with IPS now grey bar

#1 Post by applicationist » Fri Nov 16, 2018 3:23 pm

Just got a new IPS in the post, installed but when I use it, only a certain type of grey displays different within a vertical bar. The picture explains it better


My thoughts are faulty LCD.. but just wondering if anyone had the same experience and it was something else !

Seems like one of the bits isn't working in that section but definitely a faulty LCD. It is too localized to be a GPU or LCD cable error. Used to get similar errors on my IPS swapped X240 with its broken LCD panel.

Replace and try again or see if the LCD is getting pressure at all in any spots but doubt it.
Thinkpad4by3's Law of the Universe.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.
