impossible to upgrade from Full HD to 3k IPS monitor on a w550s

2021-06-10, 10:34 AM

Hi Guys!

After having problems with the monitor when trying to change a Full HD NT  for one IPS with 3K resolution, and not removing the internal battery, I ruined the motherboard screen fuse energy supplier, so I had to buy a used motherboard, but tested, I bought it in AliExpress, when the motherboard arrived I changed at service shop the old one that did not it sent current to the monitor, due to the blown power fuse, and what was my surprise, that the new 3k monitor that I am trying to install is not recognized by the computer and does not turn on, the monitor is new. Putting a full HD monitor and the 30-pin cable does work, before with the damaged motherboard it did not work, It had the "backlight" problem, now the Full HD screen works, but the 3k with the 40-pin cable does not work. In the technical service, they have told me that it is because my model of w550s does not support 3k, but that does not convince me.


Are they correct, or could it be a problem with the new monitor, or with the 40 pin cable or maybe the Bios configuration?

 

Regards

According to:

https://www.lenovo.com/ae/en/commercial-notebook/thinkpad/w-series/ThinkPad-W550s/p/22TP2TW550S#tab-tech_specs

Display
  • FHD – 1920 x 1080 – TN – 300 nits
  • 3k – 2880 x 1620 – IPS 350 nits
  • 3k Touch – 2880 x 1620 – IPS 350 nits

W550s seems to support 3k.

00NY456 seems to be the touch 4k cable, I could not find another 40p cable. Do you have 00NY456?

 

Good Luck!

For Lenovo T550 W550S T560 P50S T570 P51S Lcd Cable Non-touch FHD++ 3K 40PIN

I bought this model , it was on ebay and seemed to be the right one but i do not have the exactly references....maybe is the cable after all but the seller ha 99% positive reviews so i felt confident about that but since i could not fix it until i got a motherboard for a reasobale price it was too late to confirm either mistake, screen or cable, but if the full HD works then it must be the cable or the 3k screen i bought in UK to an other superseller...
