x201i dislay turns off when fully open

My x201i is suddenly having a strange issue. The display turns itself off while opening the lid past about 30-35 degrees. Keeping the lid partially open display is ok - but continuing to open turns the display off. Anyone has any ideas?

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!


I’m sorry to hear that you are having display issues with your Lenovo ThinkPad X201i when opening the lid about 30-35 degrees.


Try reinstalling the display drivers and check. Check if display works fine on an external display.


It seems that the issue could be related to your LCD cable or the screen itself. Try reseating the LCD cable and check. Refer the hardware maintenance manual to understand how it has to be done. If you are not comfortable in doing the same, I would suggest you to contact Lenovo Technical Support for assistance.
