Can I use 13N7094 with X61s?

2008-07-04, 23:46 PM

Hello,

 

I have a ThinkPad X61s (7668CTO). Now the LCD is broken. I would like to get it replaced. Since broken LCD is not coverd by the warranty, and the quote I get from IBM service is rather high, close to the price of a new one. I am looking for alternatives.

 

My laptop is installed with LCD 13N7092. I am wondering, if it possible to replace it with other compatible models listed in the service manual. Specifically, 13N7094, 13N7096, and 42T0343. Could somebody please advice?

 

Thanks,

 

Steve

Hi Steve,

 

Welcome to the forums!

 

The part number you listed (13N7092) is an Ultralight LCD panel sold only in X61s models. It is thinner than the other panels you listed and thus fits the bezel in your machine.


The other part numbers you listed, namely 13N7094, 13N7096, and 42T0343 indeed are 12" LCD panels but are thicker than the one used in your X61s and hence will not fit the bezel on your current machine, i.e. you will not be able to finalize the assembly because of the thickness difference. Because of the LCD panel thickness differences, you'd need to purchase a different bezel to fit the other panels then you'd be on your way. 

 

You may be stuck having to buy another 13N7092 panel to replace your original (now broken) panel.

 

 

Hope that helps

PS - Happy 4th - go enjoy the fireworks
