Question about IBM ThinkPad T23 2647 Notebook

IBM THINKPAD T23

My laptop recently drank rum and coke. When I turn it on the lights all come on, the fan is working and I can barely make out Thinkpad on the screen. Thats about it. Any quick and easy fixes? Or is this a dead alcoholic puter ready for the grave! I am not very knowlegable about taking apart. I tried opening it up but was afraid of screwing up something. Any chances of it coming back on its own...It happened on Saturday so it should be dry now. The computer was turned over so that most of it drained out. The puter was on when it happened. thanks Sailhappy

    Hello Agentsmith

    Thanks for the info. Unfortunately, for that amount of money I am sure my brother-in-law (the one with the loose fingers, and his puter...will probably get another. They are so cheap these days.

Wow, I am not sure what Jimmy Buffet would do, but it sounds to me like the display inverter got shorted out. (usually $50.00-$70.00 for the part) the display inverter backlights the LCD. from past experience I can say that you will need a new keyboard too. around $50.00 for the part. once the sugar of the liquor dries the keyboard sticks bad.

T23 fan error


This is a commin IBM issue fans going Bad ... to try and free it if it's just dust you can actually blow into the vent with compressed air and free up the Fan ... The IBM T series all check fan before powering up.
The replacement is not too difficult to do.
The safest air is the can type to blow in there.

Good Luck

How to repair ibm thinkpad t23 laptop screen no light


Yes you have no backlight. The screen is all dark but in the back you can barly see it. You inverter is bad on you thinkpad. You need to replace it. I have a IBM thinkpad 600e and i got one for $9.95 so they can be cheap. They are located under the lcd. When you open it up it is there or can see that it is attached to the light dimmer swicth so you will know that is it. Thats your problem

Fan turns on and off rapidly


The fan cycling problem on the T23 series usually indicates a loose solder or missing inductor which is usually on the underside beneath the PCMCIA slot. If you replaced the mobo yourself you may have flexed what is a weak solder joint loose - you will need to pull the board and resolder this or have someone else do this for you. You can sometimes get the laptop to start by flexing the assembled laptop gently around the PCMCIA slot and if so then that almost always means an inductor problem. You can find some photos by googling (images) "T23 mobo" or "T23 motherboard".
