Thinkpad X40 (1/2 of the screen doesn`t work)

2015-10-30, 8:50 AM

Hello everybody,

I hope that I have found the right forums and that somebody will be able to confirm what has happened to my old but beloved X40 :smileyhappy:

I am therefore attaching some sreenshots, because they will be definitely of your help.

Thank you for getting back to me. I will try finding a second-hand screen in this case :smileyhappy: Hopefully I will be able to.

Hi,

In fact it`s flicking and also - it does the same thing pushing gently the top part of the screen and also pushing the down part.

In this case can I buy eventually a new display? Is this what I am supposed to be looking for - for a display?

Hi X40,

 

Do you have access to an external monitor that you can hook up to the X40 to see if you see the same thing on the external monitor?  

 

Regards,

Dave

You can also try moving the screen forward and backwards to see if it flickers or so if it does then it seems somethings wrong with the screen cable and not the screen itself.

Hello everybody! 

I am sorry that it took that long in order to perform the tests. 

So, I connected a multimedia projector to the laptop and the whole screen was visible - so there was NO issue with the screen whatsoever. 

Does this conclude that the issue is within the monitor/display itself? If so, I would like to buy a new one online - can you recommend any displays or/and sellers? 

Regards,
Alex

sorry for the delay, well if moving screen forward and backwards does nothing and carefully pushing on screen does nothing either then it sems to be a issue with screen anyway especally when you use external monitor and it appears fine there.
