Horizontal line on the display of T61

Hi lenovo community,

 

I have T61 (type7663, Model 12U) just got from Ebay and love it. The only problem is that there's a horizontal line on the display (14.1") that splits all the way of the screen in half. I fixed all other problems so I really want to get rid of this line and make a powerful machine for myself.

 

If anyone knows the good website that explains how to change a display or has a similar experience that would be very much appreciated.

 

 

Thanks!

what GPU do you have?

nVidia quadro 140 maybe?

Re: Horizontal line on the display of T61

this is most likely a problem with the LCD or cable connection.

this is the hardware manual it will show you how to change the LCD.

Re: Horizontal line on the display of T61

Thanks for the quick responses! It's 7663-12U. I tried to attach a snapshot and then realized there's no line on the picture. Does this mean that this is a physical LCD problem and not a problem on the graphic card?

 

Very much appreciated for your suggestions.

yes it is most likely the LCD that is having the problem.

Re: Horizontal line on the display of T61

I have this horizontal line on my T61 as well, it disappears if I move the screen a bit. Though I have had my screen already replaced once so it could be just an issue with the replacement procedure.

 

I've got an engineer coming on site soon to deal with my Laptop and hopefully resolve this line issue.

Re: Horizontal line on the display of T61

Did you also have a same line before you replaced the screen? I've never done the replacement and one screen costs $100. I wonder if it's worth trying.

Re: Horizontal line on the display of T61

if you have warranty left, they should be able to fix your LCD issue.
