Re: Replacing screen on T61p - compatibility query

2014-06-13, 17:58 PM

Guys,

 

I'm interested to replace my WUXGA .. it has become really dark and without the charger connected (unless it's really dark in the room) the screen is not usable anymore.

 

I'd be interested in a reliable (EU?) source for a Sharp LQ154M1LW2A - can any of you recommend one? between the LG and the Sharp - in terms of better screen quality - should I go for Sharp?

 

Thanks in advance!

Folks having both swear the Sharp is the best one you can get (specially the members of the German TPF forum), I'm still waiting for mine to arrive from China so I can't give you first hand information.

 

The only source I know is Ebay so far, you may start watching these sellers: click me!  (I have no personal affiliation with any of them)

 

Remember you can also get a LQ154M1LW02, this one is also compatible but have some brackets that need to be removed in order to make it fit in the lid frame.

 

Happy hunting! ;-)

Hi.

 

I'm typing and looking at my yellowish screen .. still trying to find a reliable source.

Did your screen show-up? .. kindly let me know if you ended up with an original Sharp or not .. because on eBay it seems that all sellers advertise a "100% compatible" screen with that product/model number ..

 

I look at the brightness of my external monitor (a Samsung T22C350) and then at the LCD of my T61p and ... I need to get a replacement .. fast :)

 

Regards,

Yes, mine showed up and it's happily working in one of my T500's, gorgeous screen!

 

I have a second one in the meantime (both were original Sharps), this one is going to a W500 with a very dark Samsung WUXGA panel. 

 

I'm afraid the seller has no more of these, I got the last one from him (check seller Ugooole in Ebay). I have no relation or affiliation with that seller!

Guh there are so many listings "for Sharp LQ154M1LW2A" which aren't the actual model. Anyone know a supplier who sells the actual sharp panel?

What exactly do you get if you buy one of the "for Sharp LQ154M1LW2A" panels? Are they decent?

I was never willing to take a "compatible" one, so I can't comment on that...

 

I have this supplier in my watchlist: http://www.ebay.com/usr/brandnewlcds?_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2754

 

I don't have any affiliation with this seller, nor have I bought anything from him, is just on my watchlist.

 

Happy hunting!

I ordered a Sharp from China ... now waiting for a confirmation of the shipment and the delivery itself.

 

as a side project, for the LCD which goes out of my laptop, I purchased a LCD controller board which I intend to use with the old LCD panel in order to build an external monitor :). Hopefully it works,

Good luck then, you ordered from a Chinese Ebay seller or any other Chinese online shop?

Hi.

 

I ordered via Alibaba.com .. I had an account on the portal and then I just searched for the Sharp model, got in touch with a Gold seller and paid via PayPal. I'm waiting for the DHL tracking number now ...

 

everywhere I looked on eBay .. it was more like "compatible" stuff .. so I avoided eBay.

It remains to be proven if I took the correct decision.

I think so, if you pay attention to choose a seller with a good feedback and/or status they're normally very reliable in my experience.
