Re: Replacing screen on T61p - compatibility query

2014-08-13, 10:02 AM

I received my screen yesterday.

 

All's OK inside .. now I have to identify the best way to cut those extensions and then .. fitting it into the lid assembly shouldn't be so hard.

 

I guess a lot of patience is needed ... will let you know about the results ...

I used a dremel to cut off the brackets off my two panels... Something I don't want to repeat too often :smileylol:

:(

 

I would say .. it's not good.

The screen has a yellowish glow ..like blue color would be missing. Something must be wrong  .. I tried with a 2nd inverter that I have .. the same result.

 

I tested it on the T61p and the W500 .. same result. .. **bleep**.

 

Well, tomorrow is another day. For tonight I'm done ....

Can you post a picture of the panel's model# on the back?

 

Mine looks like this:

Hi.

 

The backside looks fairly similar .. but, I'm not willing to open my laptop's lid again so I will be patient and get a 12V / 3A power adapter and test the screen with a LCD controller board that I have.

 

Anyway, I'm not happy .. the picture looked really ugly when I powered it yesterday evening. I'm afraid I just wasted some money away .... :(

Sorry to hear that! Did you pay with PayPal? Maybe you can get your money back!

Hi.

 

I doubt that it would be possible to get any money back due to the fact that one of the metal clips was already cut out ..

Anyway, this afternoon I connected the panel to the cable of the LCD controller. The connector snapped into the socket in a way that I did not sense to happen yesterday evening ... so, maybe it was me connecting it incorrectly.

 

I will be patient over the weekend until I get the power supply that I need for the LCD controller board and then I'll do some more tests. I cannot afford to keep any of my current machines disassembled just to test this Sharp panel ...

 

So .. fingers crossed .. I'll share the news in a few days.

Re: Replacing screen on T61p - compatibility query

Hi.

 

I got some progress, not very consistent though.

 

Using the LCD controlleer board I could connect the Sharp display to my T61p as external monitor (via this LCD controller board it's recognized as external TV). A LVDS setting adjustment was needed on the controller board, in order to correct some color display and I have the colors fixed now but not entirely.

 

The yellowish shade still exists and the Sharp is far darker compard to my current WSXGA LG/Philips which I have in the T61p. I've asked the seller about this and their reply was elusive: they claim that the while the Sharp is an original product, a utility like HWInfo is not capable to extract always the correct info from the LCD panel chips. I cannot accept this. Refer to the two attachments.

 

Is it feasible to test this small application on your ThinkPad and see if you get a correct readout from the Sharp?
