Question about IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook
Hi! This is John. I'm using Thinkpad T30 2367. Earlier I multi colored horizontal lines on my screen with slight flickering. Slowly it worsened even more leaving my screen with no display at all except the colored lines. After that I stopped using it regulary. Anyhow I managed to open the LCD assembly to adjust the connection of Video Data Cable correctly to get a crystal clear picture to transfer some files. One day I planned to troubleshoot it on my own & tried to disassemble the unit while it was pugeed in. the moment I disconnected the connection between the LCD & the inverter, everything went off. I tried reconnecting the inverter as it was but still no results. Right now the contidion is that the unit is showing no signs of being alive. Even if I connect it to external power supply it will not show up a single LED or any indication of being in working condition. My unit is out of warranty & I am on a time crunch since I have a project to complete.
Please suggest me something.

You probably shorted something out on the motherboard when you unplugged the inverter. The machine would have to be disassembled and the system board traced for power problems.
If you have it repaired make sure it goes to a shop that does "component level" repairs to mainboards.
If you are not ready to spend $100-$200 fixing it then I would replace the machine. In the meantime you may want to buy a external USB hard drive box so you can plug in your hard drive to another machine.
here is a link to an enclosure that would work:
hope this helps!
