Re: T61p exhibiting 1 long and 2 short beep and black screen

[ Edited ]

Hi guys, what is the latest news?

 

I could forgive Lenovo for sending faulty laptops on the market, if they would man up to it and replace the mobo on all(every **bleep** one they made) units instead of this ridicules short run. and then use their expensive lawyers to sue nVidia and make them pay for the repair!

 

Now that Lenovo are in the searchlight, have they decided to make good for the customers, and restart the service? Or do they do as others, say that even bad publicity is free publicity?

Hello,

 

I experienced the same problem on my R61. After I called Lenovo-Tech, they told me they know the problem and for 80€ they would make me a cost estimate for the reparation. The laptop worked very well the last 3 years and I was very happy with it, but now it seems I can throw it away. I cannot believe it. After this experience I'm definitely done with lenovo and highly discourage people from buying these products.

 

Best,

ac

Re: T61p exhibiting 1 long and 2 short beep and black screen

I have a chance to replace my faulty mobo (well the GPU is faulty) but am not sure if the new one is going to be free of the faulty nVidia GPU problem.How can I tell it by the P/N?

In other words, which mobos are said to be unaffected by the fault? I assume that the breaking point is the production date 08/08 from which the the common graphics problem was fixed. How does this date correspond with the mobos p/n?



ThinkPads: 560 / 770 / 380z / T20 (2647-44G) + Dock II / T23 / R50p (1832-23G) now with T42p mb (2373-CTO) / T41p (2374-GGG) / R.I.P. T61p (6458-W1H) @ HD (rip) + Adv. Dock / X200t (7453-BH7)

7664-1KU

S/N: xxxxxxx

 

I'm another victim of broken nVidia GPU in some Lenovo T61 models.

Now, when I'm more than 6 months after end of my warranty (it ended about November of 2010), I feel a little fake by Lenovo. I always thought ThinkPads was the best bussines laptop ever but now probably I change my mind. I'm waiting for response from Lenovo Service in Poland what will they write about my repair but I'm almost sure I will have to pay for repair. O_o No comment at all.

 

Good Luck next Thinkpads customers...

Re: T61p exhibiting 1 long and 2 short beep and black screen

GRRR...

 

Right, so my T61p  570m has just crashed. Never knew anything about the Nvidia problem. 

It is out of warranty since feb 2011 and nothing from Lenovo.

 

 

Anyway, where to get a cheap 42w7653 mainboard in the Netherlands, Germany or Belgium, I have the T7700 chip? 

 

Called Lenovo about it, but they want me send it over for E 89 and 1 hour minimum check @ E 229 an hour....

 

I can replace the mainboard myself, so only want a new board. 

 

Some help would be GREATLY appreciated!

 

Thanks guys/girls

42W7653 mainboard with a bad chip got replaced by 43Y9048 and costs EUR 611,59 ?!??!?!?!?

 

Right, that's it, I am switching, after ~15 years IBM/Lenovo to something else.

 

Bye Lenovo

Re: T61p exhibiting 1 long and 2 short beep and black screen

you can purchase the post warranty warranty (1 year depot is only around $150) on these T61p and get it fixed once they extended the warranty.

Also, you are in Europe now?

Re: T61p exhibiting 1 long and 2 short beep and black screen

Can I buy extended warranty when my laptop is from USA (I'm from Poland) and I have no documents for my ThinkPad (I bought it on an auction)?

I have to mention that before my warranty expire one of service providers replaced my broken pixel LCD without any warranty document.
