Question about IBM ThinkPad T20 2647 Notebook

1 Answer

After about two to three minutes it turns off and will not start up untill a day

I have a old ibm t20 using windows 08. It worked great and then it stated to just turn off after running four a couple of minuets. Some times it takes a day or two before it will start again. I check the power souce and the fan is working in side. I do not know what to do. It is not a sofware proble either. It must have to do with the power or some switch because when i push the on button the hard drive light will flicker and then stay off. Help me thank you Aaron

Stuck at IBM Thinkpad Splash Screen


Sound like a memory chip has failed. Try removing the memory, I believe these have on board, but not sure. If it doesn't have on board, you will need at least one chip in. If the problem is still there, try removing the CD drive, occasionally they can cause a no start. If it's not the memory or the CD drive, then try a bios flash. You will need to create a bootable disc from IBM's support site using a different machine (obviously).
If the bios flash doesn't fix it, them the problem will lie with the motherboard.

Ibm t20 no LCD backlight


while the T20 is on and manifesting the dim display....

1. try to slowly close the lid (but not totally closing it) and then pulling it back to its original position slowly. Tell me if the light goes back.

if by doing that action the backlight lights up, you are most likely faced with a Flex cable problem. You might need to buy this from ebay. (dim display problem in T20 series is very common these days due to wear and tear of the flex cable)

2. Also try to use a pen to turn on and off the limit switch that triggers the backlight. This is located above the keyboard below the lcd. See what happens.

Not using full display on IBM T20


That would be my guess. Go to the laptop manufacturer website to get an updated one.
