Question about IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook

1 Answer

Display + Startup

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:

2006 powerbook G4. my screen will get glitchy and i can see multi color squares and lines randomly on the screen. when i move a window the pixels chase and outline my movements. any ideas?


sounds like the video card is dying. I was able to hold off on one dying by downloading a fan controller that kept the machine cooler, but with the age of the G4, it's likely damaged. Consider replacing or the fan controller.

Hi, now you could be having one of two problems the first thing and easiest option is to scan for viruses and such like as this is often the cause of any display problems the second and more expensive problem is going to be that the lcd screen will need replacing or you may have a fault on the video board part inside the laptop both of these repairs will need to be done by a computer repair shop.
Check if you have any warranty left as these repairs are not cheap.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Flickering multi-colored line in the middle of the screen.


You have a failure in the vertical deflection circuit. This could be either a bad vertical chip, the power supply that runs the chip or a bad capacitor in that circuit. This is usually a repair best left to a professional. There is a small possibility that it could be bad solder connections. If genlty tapping the unit temporarily solves the issue you can try and resolder the pins on the vertical chip LA7841 is the part number. There is also a resistor 1 ohm 1 watt. If that resistor is open you can assume the IC is bad

Intense white & coloured horizontal line on black background on startup


I wouldn't attempt as the capacitors on a tv store around 25000 volts this is more than enough to kill you and they keep there charge even when the tv is off. Either take it to a repair shop or put that money towards buying a new tv - Do not even attempt to open the tv. (It sounds like maybe a tube has gone or the electromagnet that makes the beam move vertically is gone.
