Black simmed vertical band on the screen of new T460s

2017-05-09, 18:22 PM



I's ve just bought a new T460s but unfortunately the LCD seems has a problem. There is a black dimmed vertical line always appears in the middle the monitor when looking in profile. You can see the attached photo to be clearer. I think this is a fault of LCD panel because it displays when starting up. I also work around like updating the latest driver of graphics but nothing changed. IMO this is not about of Windows 10 64 bit.


Anyone has a solution to solve this problem because I am really frustrated with the error. If not, should I contact with Lenovo Warranty Team.


Thank you

Solved! See the solution

If you have a nearby dealer who does thinkpad warranty service (like a premier dealer) I think that is the best choice.  When I have a screen defect like this, I think it is easiest to explain if everyone is looking at the same screen.
