I recently oredred a T460, and was immediately disapointed to see I had virical lines / grid going through my LCD when I first powered it on. Over time the lines fade away. Is this normal behavior is this a known defect in the display? It is a really bad blemish on what is overall a top of the line computer.
Is this every T460? Can someone confirm that they do not have the issue? I recently called support and they consider my laptop DOA and I am going to get a replacment.
My worry is I will get stuck with the exact same issue on a replacment unit. If that happens I will end up returning my unit completely, which is a heart breaker because the T460 is exactly what I want in a laptop computer.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I have the exact same issue as well on my T460s FHD non-touch display.
There are vertical lines/box-grids on panels of solid colour, and this effect is most visible upon startup, and at the windows login page (because of the large panels of solid blue colours). After waking the laptop from sleep, this effect is also visible.
Also, I noticed that this effect is more prominent on fast-motion videos such as movies or cartoons (the solid blocks of colour). It is incredibly distracting when watching videos and gives the illusion of screen-tearing for me.
The display unit I am using is LGD 14.0 FHD IPS AG, according to Lenovo's PartsLookup tool, but is labelled N140HCE-EAA, LEN40A9 according to Windows Device Manager and HWiNFO64.
A quick google search of LEN40A9 reveals that I am using an Innolux display, similar to this review model by Notebookcheck.
Hopefully, Lenovo Support may properly acknowledge and address this problem, as many users have been complaining about it already, and in my opinion, is a major manufacturing defect.
My machine was ordered in mid-June, and from the time I received it till now, the issue is still present.

I had the same issue with screen tearing (vertically); I noticed it when scrolling up/down on google chrome. I seem to have fixed the issue by enabling the pagefile and letting the system manage the size.

I had the same issue with the same monitor on the t460s, but I noticed the vertical screen tearing while scrolling webpages in google chrome. I seem to have fixed the issue by enabling the page file and letting the system manage the size. Hope this helps.

I had the same issue with this vertival lines in my T460s LCD.
I was very disappointed with this.
Fortunately, when I contacted with the polish customer care and descripted the issue, they arranged lcd replacement in my house, i think in time of 2-3 days, so quite fast
New LCD fixed the problem!
ThinkPad have on client site warranty, what's great and had been finally quite usefull
Worth the price, but shame on lenovo for poor parts quality release in a such prestige line as a T series is
