X201 black screen

2015-01-05, 19:43 PM

Hello, i have bought refubrished X201, for 14 days its been working properly.Today I have turned it off, put it in my bag and when i brought it home from work the screen doesnt work anymore. Everything else works fine, windows boots up (according to sound and touch sensor light) but screen doesnt even light up(on startup there is visible ThikVantage logo but without backlight). Note this pc should have led backlight. Another thing is that it doesnt register the lid beeing closed anymore.E.g. it wont go to sleep when i close the lid (it did before). I think it might be the lid close switch and from what i understand its hall effect sensor with magnet. Any ideas how to repair it by my self? I have a warranty from seller which i dont want to void.
