X230 new LCD cable

Hi, I had a broken LCD problem (https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/x230-LCD-with-vertical-black-lines-fixed-by-t...).

So I ordered a new screen but the connector is different: the new screen has a 30 pin connector while the old cable (n. 04W1679 from https://support.lenovo.com/it/en/partslookup) is bigger, now I don't know how to find a proper cable.

The screen model is M125NWN1 R0.

Which cable should I buy? I don't understand how to choose the right one.

Re: X230 new LCD cable

Unfortunately, not a cable or connector are the key problem. Your new LCD has another signaling interface eDP, while x230 supports older one LVDS. They aren't compatible even if you'll find the cable with 30 pins connector.

There is a way to use eDP LCD if you'll add additional, 3rd party, interface coverter kit, but it's a complicated enough action, needs skills.

So, replace new LCD to LGD LP125WH2-SLB3, x230 compatible IPS panel.

Thanks for the reply!

I find it strange that  the seller labelled the item as x230 replacement screen then..

I'll ask for refund and buy a different item if there's no solution.
