ThinkPad T/W 500 4063-CJ5 - Pink screen

2019-12-30, 7:46 AM

Good morning,

ThinkPad T/W 500 4063-CJ5

When I turn on my computer, or when it comes out of standby, the screen is pink.
After a few seconds, it goes back to normal.

There seems to be a problem with the graphics card.
What can I do about it?

Thank you for your help.

Solved! See the solution

This is not a problem with a graphic card, but with CCFL/backlit tube. After years of use, it start to wear out. You have two ways to solve this issue:

  • Replace the CCFL, which is a difficult task.
  • Replace whole panel.

 

You will learn more about this issue from this topic.

Hello,

Thank you for answering me.

For my understanding, how did you determine that this is the screen ?
Can I take any screen where a special mark is required ?

Cordially.

GPU issues looks totally different. They usually won't show immediately after waking up/powering on, but after a while when system will warm up. They also don't "fix" after few seconds - system will crash after these few seconds. It's really easy to confirm that this is a CCFL/backlit tube issue. Simply connect external display, put your ThinkPad to sleep and check if you will see the same issue on external screen. If yes, then it's internal screen issue.

 

I cannot advice, what other planel you could install in your device.
