Cost to repair out-of-warranty t60

2010-05-24, 13:14 PM

I love my out-of-warranty t60 and rather than store it, i wanted to see if fixing is worth it.

 

The only problem it has is the display screen. The blacklight gradually grew dim/red and now it does not come on for longer than 2 seconds on first boot. Thus, the laptop can only be used with an external monitor.

 

How do I got about paying for repairs via Lenovo/IBM paid repair service? What would be the estimated cost involved? I remember about 2 yeas ago i paid around 250$ to replace my cooling fan. I tried emailing the rep I dealt with but got no reply.

 

Is there a repair server tel #?

 

thanks,

well the cheaper option is to purchase a post warranty service on the machine, and then get it fixed under the new warranty.

 

The warranty should be between 100 to 200 USD for the basic one year. If you do an out of warranty repair on the LCD, it would cost around 700 USD.

check whether your T60 is included in the list, then call up Lenovo customer service to purchase this post warranty service.
