Lenovo Thinkpad x260 screen upgrade 1366 x 768 to 1920 x 1080 ips panel

Newly bought(second hand) Lenovo thinkpad x260 , love everything about the notebook except the dull washed out display .

My question is ' can I simply swap the shipped dispay of 1366 x768 for a 1920 x 1080 ips display' . I have the knowlege how to do this but will I be wasting £70 . I read on another forum (cant remember where) that sometimes the internal video cable needs to be upgraded and this is not something I want to attempt , I dont want to brick the machine and have to sent it to a repair shop .

 

Machine Type Model x260
20F5S1Y60N

 

Thanks

Hi Tamo01,

Warm Greetings & welcome to Lenovo Community, happy to have you here.

As I understand that you have query regarding upgrading your current ThinkPad x260 HD display to FHD.

Yes, I do agree upgrading from HD to FHD is bit tricky here & you got it right intrnal cable has to be replaced as well.

 

I hope the above information helped you.

Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

 

Regards,
Prabhansh

Thank you for the welcome , your answer reinforces what I have heard from a screen re-seller website . It is good to have an expert second opinion thank you very much . My choices are 1 put up with the screen as is  2 research how to replace the video cable or 3 sell the device on . I think Number 3 is the choice I will make .
