2 X IBM T41 laptops, both with extremely dim displays. I'm guessing the inverter has gone, any thoughts? Any availability ideas for replacements for either inverter, ot complete LCD assy, including...


When the invertors fail, it is common to be completely dead not showing a little light.
Maybe they have both failed but I would check the power save settings first.
Hope that helps.

IBM r41 thinkpad makes one long beep and two short beeps when starting but the computer then stops and only the power light and the light to the left stay on


There seems to be a slight problem here as there is no R 41. There is a G41 and a T41. They both have the same beep code and symptom. One long and two short is:
1. System board
2. LCD assembly
3. Dimm

If you copy and paste this link it will take you to the support page for think pads. Use the complete model number on the bottom of your machine and select users guides and manuals and you'll be able to download a copy of the HMM (hardware maintenance manual) used by IBM techs.

How do I replace the LCD screen hinge on my IBM T41?


I'm sure you could get these hinges from IBM, but no idea as to their cost. They are available on e-bay for $8-$35 (depending on whether you want 1 or a set) plus $8-$10 shipping.

As far as replacement. You will have to remove the Top cover assembly from the base of the PC. If you need help with that, just let me know and I'll talk you through that.

To replace the hinge, you will have to disassemble the Top cover assembly.The screws that you will need to remove are covered by small black adhesive covers. There are 3 round ones along the bottom of the bezel, 2 square ones up at the top of the bezel (to the left of the white LED keyboard light, and 6 (trapezoidal shaped) on the outside of the cover (3 on each side). Carefully remove those covers and the screws that are under the covers. Keep track of where the screws should go back in.

The actual bezel is held into the top cover with some internal snaps. Start at one of the corners, run a knife blade along the seam (between the cover and bezel) and you will hear each fastener "snap" as you slide the blade past it. Once the bezel is loose, lift it off of the LDC screen. There is one additional screw that is located up in the upper right hand corner. That one will need to be removed, also.

Gently lift the right hand side of the LCD assembly a couple of inches and place something of appropriate size to hold it in the raised position. You will see 2 additional screws that hold the hinge to the LCD assemble. Remove those and the old hinge will come right off.

Position the new hinge and replace the two screws that you had just removed. Reverse the removal sequence to reassemble the display.

Before you start snapping the bezel back into place, check to make sure that the two cover catches (those hook things, up at the top of the LCD assembly) are both operational. The link going to the left hand one tends to easily fall off.

This procedure should take in the neighborhood of 45 minutes to an hour.

If you need any additional information, please feel free to ask. If this information has assisted you in the resolution of you problem, please return here to give my assistance an appropriate final rating. If this information has answered your question and/or lead to a resolution, please rate it as "Fixya!".
Thanks you, and have a super day!
