T61p replacement panel

2014-12-28, 14:20 PM

Hi,

 

I'm having a bit of trouble finding a replacement panel for my T61p in the UK. Everywhere I look their either out of stock or don't exsist. I've tried the Lenovo site but again I can't a replacement.

 

I have the 15.4" 1920x1200 matte screen. Can anyone guide me on where to get one?

Solved! See the solution

Welcome to the forum!

 

In this case Ebay and similar shops will be a place to start with, you need to look for the following models:

 

  • Samsung LTN154U2-L05
  • LG LP154WU1-TLB1

 

The Samsung is the one with lesser quality in terms of brightness and contrast, it can get better with some calibration but don't expect too much. The LG is the better panel and I would strongly recommend to search for that one.

 

There are also two panels from Sharp that will work:

 

  • LQ154M1LW02
  • LQ154M1LW2A

Both are plug and play, but the first model mentioned above has some metal brackets that need to be removed in order to make it physically fit in theT61 lid. These panels were not originally offfered by Lenovo, but they work without any issues.

 

Hope this helps...

Thanks for the quick reply!

Having the model numbers of the screen makes finding what I need a lot easier.

Is it easy to replace this screen or would you recommend I get someone else to do it. I’m alright at basic things like replacing other components like RAM, HDD and all that but I'm unsure about the screen.

You need to disassemble quite a bit for that, it's not so difficult if you follow the instructions of the HMM (Lenovo's Hardware Maintenance Manual)

 

In case you did not download it yet you can get it from here: click me! Check chapter 1180 onwards, there you can see if you will feel confortable with the tasks to do or not.

Awesome, thanks for the info!

After looking at it I think i'll get someone else to do it. I'm not that confident in my skills.

But thanks for the model number of the screens. Made find them so much easier.

You're welcome!

 

I can really recommend those Sharp panels. I have two of them working in tow of my T500 and they're great!
