WTB: LCD Inverter for Thinkpad 750C

#1 Post by Galacnor » Wed Sep 22, 2021 2:03 pm

Hello again guys.

Im very sad to report that the last seller on this forum who offered to sell me a 750C inverter was a scammer and I have lost my money and received nothing.

That means I am still in search for a 750C inverter after an entire year with still no luck.

I beg you, someone please legitimaty sell me one. I need only a single working inverter shipped to Germany.

Just for such cases we have this thread in the Marketplace forum: Negative feedbacks for traders and Tips for fair trading
You should name and shame that seller in there.

Howdy Realblackstuff,

Thanks for your support. Its never fun to be scammed, I did it to myself this time by not thinking too hard. Fortunately, the money sent was peanuts but still!

The scam that I fell for is discussed here in this thread and has since been dealt with. As such, I do not feel its appropriate for me to open a new thread to discuss it further. I should have been more careful. I didn't even ask for a photograph, nor did I take the poor English as a bad sign (I live in Europe most of the year, theres plenty of reputable people who don't speak English as a first language; but, this was clearly a red flag)

I would be so greatful if someone turns up a working 750C inverter for me! Or, if that fails, an entire panel complete with said inverter!

With the best regards
Alex

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,

I have now expanded my search to both the German Language Thankpads Forum (quite the coincidence that I live in Germany and speak their language!), and to Reddit.

As of now I am still searching for the needed 750C Inverter. If anyone has one they want to part with, this may be the time to!

Hello again, Realblackstuff,

Thank you so much for your continued help.

I did actually try to purchase the one in the Ebay UK link; but, sadly, couldn't get the seller to send me a shipping invoice and ended up cancelling the order.

You will be very happy to know that I found an alternative over at Impact Computers, thanks to the help of multiple people in multiple places. (I can't fairly award credit to any one person as a few people showed me the same link around the same time)

It ended up being cheaper than the part in the UK and I was able to send it to my brother in the US who was about to come over here to visit me anyway, he arrived with it a few days ago, and I have already reassembled the computer with its new inverter. it ended up being a beautiful NOS IBM refurb. I also snagged a sealed software and manual pack for it and had him bring me that too.

I'm waiing for a power supply to come in the mail that is compatible with the German electrical system, then I will back up the drive and make a post about everything.

Thank you kindly for all your help
Alex
