x240 screen upgrade will x260 screen work?

2018-05-10, 18:38 PM

Can I order  the x260 display for my x240? I currently have an x240 with the TN display and searching for an affordable upgrade. I have noticed the 1080p ips are around $100 now but I can find the x260 replacement for about $50 will it work? Thanks

I have never tried it so I cannot be sure, but I would guess that it will work fine.

Hey AtxRunner, would you please report back here on your solution? I too have an X240 that I've since replaced with an X1. But I'd like to fix the X240's bad ghosting display with another panel before I give it away to a relative.

(Interesting story, Lenovo agreed to replace it under warranty a while back, even though I missed the warranty period by a few weeks. But guess what they replaced it with? Another "bad" panel! I gave up after that).

Recently I used FRU 00HM745 (ThinkPad X250) 1920x1080 IPS to upgrade a ThinkPad X240 with a 1366x768 TN display without issue. The non-touch display across the X240/X250/X260 all use a 30-pin video connector.
