Lenovo T61 Screen Replacement? Compatible?

2017-04-11, 1:18 AM

Hello,

 

I am trying to replace the LCD screen for my friend's laptop. Her laptop is the Lenovo T61 14.1" with the following LCD panel: WXGA+ 1440x900 widescreen. She accidently cracked the LCD (but at least not the outside cover).

 

I am trying to see if I can get a panel equivalent to that and am wondering if it is possible to substitute it for similar panels. The LCD bezel/cover does not come with a camera but with a LED to shine light on the keyboard if that is at all useful in determining compatibility.

 

The subsitute panel I was looking at is:

Samsung 14.1" WXGA+ 1440x900 Matte LCD Display Panel

Part Number: LTN141BT06-002
Alternate PN's: N141C3-L07, 486272-001-LCD, 483201-001-LCD, 623156-001, LTN141AT13-101, N141C3-L07-CD, LTN141AT13-001, LTN141BT06-002-CD, LTN141BT06-002-LOT5, LTN141BT06-002-LOT10

 

 

The one that appears to be compatible with the T61 is P/N LTN141WD-L05

 

Looking at both of these panels, they appear to be built similarly so I'm not sure if it is possible to try the subsitute panel and hope that would work. Or are Lenovo laptops picky with certain LCD panels so I have to buy a specific one?

 

Mostly doing this to cut down on price so it can be as affordable as possible for my friend.

 

Thanks for your help!

I haven't worked on one in quite a while, but here's what I remember.  All the wide-screen T61 and R61 screens are compatible.  The T400 and R400 machines were initially released with the same panels as the wide 14.1"  T61/R61, but after a while T400/R400 machines could be ordered with LED backlights, so they were completely incompatible

I did a bit of searching and a few websites seem to say it's compatible but not sure how credible they are.

Hi Rich, thanks for the info. I ended up deciding to just spend a few bucks more for a screen that I know should work.

even if a panel has the same part numpers, if it doesn't have lenovo FRU numbers it may not have compatible firmware. You can reflash the firmware to make it work, but thats not a simple procedure

I have a older T510 laptop, and I broke my screen. I looked up the price, and the wanted 220 dollars for the darn thing, so I took a wild guess that some other company actually makes the screen, and that Lenevo just resells them, and decided to pull off the model sticker that was on the screen itself. I found out that their was a LG model sticker underneigth the Lenovo one. So for anyone that may be looking to repair their laptop in the future, I wound up finding the actually screen on Ebay for 65 dollars.
