I have T61 7663-AK5 and the screen tints red while I am using it. All the black on the screen turns red. When I push down with my hand on the palm rest, the colours go back to normal. I have connected the laptop to an external display and it works fine. Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

I am pushing down around the mouse pad and the right side of my mouse pad, which is above the harddrive. Where would the gpu be located? I have an onboard video card. Maybe one of the connections is loose?

hi, glad to find your post. I've a T61 also and face the exact same problem (twice).
4 months back this problem occurred and I sent the laptop in for servicing. The engineer couldn't replicate the problem and refused to fix anything since I couldn;t provide any proof of the problem.
And just 2 hrs ago, the same problem came back. (sigh) Just took quite a few photos of the screen and will send it in on coming Monday. Will update you once I get some news (and hopefully some help)
Have always heard and thought Thinkpads were really quality stuff and that IBM provides great service. Now I really have my doubts about both and am considering going back to Fujitsu instead.
