Replacing the screen on a T14 AMD gen 1. I hate the privacy guard.

2021-03-21, 14:28 PM

I absolutely love my T14 AMD gen 1 laptop, except for one thing. I have the screen with the privacy guard feature which drives me crazy. Even with the privacy guard feature turned off and the screen brightness set to the max, the viewing angles are terrible and I'm constantly making adjustments. Even when I'm looking at it straight on, I feel like the edges are dimmer.

 

I am considering replacing the screen with a different one, but want to make sure I get the right part. Does anyone have any experience replacing theirs with a different screen?

I've received my T14s AMD gen-1 build your own series just a few days ago & having the same terrible experience with the screen guard.

 

Is it possible to change the LCD without a screen guard and having a touch screen with 500 nits (only remove the screen guard) using my guarantee or warranty?

As mentioned earlier, we can only recommend compatible parts. Be mindful also that doing so might void the warranty.
