Need replacement display for x61 (Notebook NOT Tablet)

#1 Post by zerotetration » Sun Aug 12, 2018 1:21 pm


I need a replacement display for my X61 notebook. The old one appears to be dying. I know the display is 12.1" diagonal and 1024x768. What I want to know is what are the original Samsung / Toshiba / Philips part numbers for the display panel so I can search for it efficiently on eBay / Amazon. Google is not being very helpful in this regard.

Here's a good reference: http://thinkwiki.org/wiki/TFT_display

Code: Select all

FRU		Brand		Model		used in Thinkpad model	
42T0343		CMO		N121X5-L06	X60, X60s
13N7096		Samsung		LTN121XJ-L07	X60, X60s
13N7094 42T0435	BOE-Hydis	HT121X01-101	X32, X60, X60s
It's possible that the screens from the X40 and X41 are compatible, but I don't have an X40 to verify. I'm basing this from the datasheet for the IAXG02C (used in the X40/41), which specifies the same LCD connector and pinout with the LTN121XJ-L07.

I've also tested a Samsung LTN121XJ-L02 (from a Dell Latitude D400) on an X60. It works, but the fit is a bit tight, as the L02 has a bit more metal in the upper frame.
Daily driver: X220 4291-C91 i7-2620M

Backup: X220 4291-P79 i5-2520M
Toy: X60F Core Solo U1300
In pieces: two retired but working X61Ts
RIP: 760XD 9546-U9E; X61 7676-A24; and a BOE-Hydis HV121P01-100 in failed SXGA+ mod
