Question about IBM ThinkPad T43p Notebook

1 Answer

Laptop monitor disconnect


I (stupidly!) stretched the monitor of my IBM/Thinkpad T43 model too far backwards and it seems to be disconnected. Is there a way I can reconnect it? I can't see how to open the junction between the unit and the monitor. Does it come apart at all?

With Thanks,

Re: Laptop monitor disconnect

You may of broken or disconnected the ribbon cable inside the screen to the motherboard. you have to do some major work taking it apart. I would go to the manufacturer website to see if there is a how to there. Once it is apart you will see the problem.

Hi, how to resolve ibm thinkpad t43p on startup with black screen

It could be a faulty battery. Remove the battery & try to power up the laptop.
If the laptop did not power up after removing the battery, then notice the power receptacle where you plug the power adapter's cord to the laptop. While plugging the power cord in, notice if there is a spark occurring at the power receptacle. If the spark occurs, then disconnect internal drives & connectors one at a time until subsystem with short is identified. If power input still a short with bare motherboard, replace the motherboard. If the spark did not occur, then inspect the boards for burnt or melted components, cold solder on DC jack, open connections, or unseated cards.

Laptop ibm t43 does't turn on if it's not plugged in

This generally indicates that you have a short in the battery, or that one of the fail safes in the battery has kicked in. A new battery will correct the issue.
