Re: Faint Ghosting on X220 IPS screen

2011-10-15, 21:35 PM

Sorry but SiSoft Sandra Lite is maybe not "pro" enough. I checked with AIDA64 Extreme Edition but the only thing i got back was that my disply was build in 2010 (no exact date or something)... i'm not sure how trustworthy these statement of the program is (afterall it's just a demo version) and i'm now a bit worried myself again...

found something in the depths of the internet: softMCCS

looks like it's only for displays and a lot more detailed than AIDA64.

Looks like mine says 2010 still ... I don't think I got the new LCD. They put in an old one, dammit...I told them specifically the new FRU too.

relax.   all three versions say "2010" in the EDID.   i've checked new and old FRUs to confirm.

 

the only way to confirm is to look at the physical decal on the back of the display.   however, i don't recommend this unless you're technically inclined and promise not to blame lenovo service if you damage your display in the process.

 

if your replacement panel doesn't have image retention issues then it's a new panel.   no disassembly required. ;)

Re: Faint Ghosting on X220 IPS screen

Just wanted to update my original posting. I was in the process of moving while my laptop was in the depot, so it took me a few weeks to get settled so I could get my hands on it. Anyway, I finally got to it today, slipped my HD and battery back in, and can say with confidence that there's no perceptible ghosting/image permanence, and the screen is beautiful.

 

Thank you Lenovo!

I can also attest to the fact that the replacement screens are an improvement.  Just got my ghosting screen replaced yesterday at a Lenovo Authorized Repairer and very pleased with the results. 

 

As an aside, I should point out that I've had two Thinkpads and both have required repairs.  So I can't say these computers are flawless.  But the authorized repairer network is really excellent.  I have always found Lenovo authorized repairers to go above and beyond when it comes to fixing problems.

After sending my X220 and supposedly having the screen replaced, the issue is definitely not completely resolved, but may have improved, that's only speculation, however, since I don't have the previous screen to compare it to. To some extent, though the image retention seems much less noticeable.

 

The only certain change in my laptop is the small chip out of the black layer on the corner of it, which is likely related to the fact that the layer of side cushioning was broken apart when I recieved the laptop and my battery was loose in the box.
