Upgrading HD lcd X260/X270 to FHD IPS LCD?

#1 Post by code2 » Mon Oct 21, 2019 9:10 am

Hello, Could you tell me what type of LCD I have to buy to upgrade my Lenovo X260 HD to FHD IPS LCD?

I measure the LCD - widht is 290.5mm. I ordered wrong lcd with widht 282mm (this LCD fit only in FHD models X260/270/X280) and I find out that in X260 fit FHD IPS LCD from X240 - LG LP125WF2-SPB2, fru: 00HM745

Did anybody link to store that this LCD have in stock in UK or EU for reasonable price?

Thank you!

Just curious but what did you buy that it does not fit?
W530 i7-3840QM (with High Color Gamut FHD AUO B156HW01 V.4 (Matte) display), X230 i7-3520M (with Nitrocaster (rev.6) FHD mod + FHD LG IPS LP125WF2-SPB1) and one additional X230 i5-3320M (with original HD-ready LG IPS display).

But what panel did you exactly bought? What reads a sticker on the back of the panel? I asked because I am surprised that the panel ergonomically does not fit your laptop because I thought that all X240-280 shared the same 12.5" proportions. In any way, I still would like to know what panel it is exactly, I have one working X240 without a display and maybe I could buy it from you (in case such display could be used in X240, that is), I happen to live in same country so postage fee would be fine for me to bear; we can discuss this further in PM messages.

Knowing your Fru display part you automatically know with other Fhd Fru are fully compatible.
The only thing you could not know in advance is if your display has left or right connector.

I've the just this issue...
Be happy if You have some doubts.
