Re: t410s vertical band in my LCD

I too have the same issue on a Thinkpad T410s 2901-CTO. It has both a NVIDIA discrete and Intel integrated graphics card. I put the laptop to sleep in the night and the next morning the band appears all of a sudden. I called Lenovo today and they are sending me a shipment box. I have been given a turn around time of 1-3 business days, so lets see. Good Thinkpad, but bad display design. On the other hand my 5 year old T43 is still rocking (better resolution 1400x1050 and form factor) and can show me what I am typing, every pixel!

Re: t410s vertical band in my LCD

[ Edited ]

I'm just curious as to what would be the cause of this malfunction?  Is it the manufactured LCD (that came out on certain dates?)  or just the way the user normally handles the laptop?

The hardware maintenance manual (pg 137 or pg145 of PDF file) says not to put pressure on the base of the LCD (because of the PCB that's there).  But if you close the laptop, then hold the laptop like a notebook at the base of the LCD (in between the hinges), that would apply pressure on that site.  When I closed my laptop and tried to hold it there, I could definitely the base of my LCD screen bending...

Re: t410s vertical band in my LCD

Lenovo came to my work place to fix my laptop...........

Day 1 - Replaced LCD Screen and LCD cable. Same problem again, vertical band. I was told then that the Motherboard needed to be changed (very strange)

Day 2 - Replaced LCD Screen again and the Motherboard. This time NO power. Motherboard was stuffed. So much for QA in Lenovo factory

Day 3 (today) - Replaced Motheboard...Finally it works. So far so good. Although it is only 8 hrs old at the moment

They replaced the LCD in my T410s and so far so good. Called Lenovo on Monday, recieved a shipment box on Tuesday, sent by UPS overnight to Memphis, repaired on Wednesday and rcvd today. Hope it does not need further Lenovo visits.

Re: t410s vertical band in my LCD

They swapped my LCD as well and so far so good.  (though it has only been a few days)  Hoping whatever underlying defect caused this is addressed.

 

(though if someone else needed their motherboard swapped then I am wondering how well the problem is understood and under control)

 

We'll see.

Re: t410s vertical band in my LCD

Egad!  We are rolling out 23 new ThinkPads (five T410, fifteen T410s and four T510) and one T410 had a "white screen" issue (LCD replaced) and now one of our T410s' has a vertical white stripe.  I don't have enough fingers to keep crossed!
