Replacement screen for X200

#1 Post by ximo » Sun Aug 11, 2019 11:07 am

Hello people,
I own a X200 with a standard 1280x800 (matte) screen that needs to be replaced. Plenty of sources to buy from, but I see screens with 20, 30 and even 40 pins on offer for the X200. Can someone give me any guidance on how to find out which screen to buy, preferably without opening the laptop, since it’s in use at the moment.

Thank you

Use HWINFO, it will tell you exactly which LCD/monitor you have. Looks like e.g. LP121WX3-TLC1
Then look up that LCD at http://www.panelook.com/ for the pinout.

Thanks for your reply, since I'm running Linux on this machine HWINFO won't work. But your tip got me thinking and I found the following model number in var/log/xorg.log: LTD121EWVB. Which in turn gave me: http://www.panelook.com/LTD121EWVB_Tosh ... 11036.html

Checking the panel model on the web they all seem to be LVDS 20-pin connectors like this one: https://www.ebay.nl/itm/IBM-LENOVO-X200 ... Swq7JTz4ln

If this is not correct please let me know.

Thanks again,

That would be correct, it's a CCFL screen with 20-pin connector.
For some more info (and alternatives), see here: viewtopic.php?t=114232
