Any way to mitigate ripple pattern when swapping LCD backlight strip to LED ?

Hi. I just did an LED backlight swap on my X61s. Sooo much brighter and whiter. But I do get a ripple pattern on the bottom of the screen from the individual LEDs (as opposed to the original tube). Any techniques to mitigate that ripple pattern?

Yeah, you can / should insert a diffuser strip above the LEDs.

You mean you're seeing this, right?

If you're using Monty's daylight kit they're included, otherwise you can use a similar material.

Read here, specifically under Shims and the differences between the Original and Daylight kits.


Good luck,
R
