IBM thinkpad R51 pink screen

For a few weeks I have thought that my screen had a slightly pink hue but when I opened it this morning it was obvious. The bottom right corner is very pink and then it slowly fades so that the bottom right 1/4 of the screen is all slighty pink. I know very little about computers, please help me:)

Same thing on my wife's R51....I have replaced the backlight in other systems, however this was her work computer..took to a good reputable business class repair shop.....the backlight is in a complete unit that has to be replaced, and the piece cost $350...also, the shop said not to do this yourself, because you need to be in a "clean room" or the dust you get inside the screen will glow....the screens are sealed on the R51....so you will open it up to dust if you take it apart...best thing is to do a complete screen replacement...

You will need to replace the cold cathode tube that backlights the display.

HI,
Wait for the ThinkPad logo to appear on the screen a few seconds after the boot process begins. Press the "F1" key on your keyboard and you will get access to bios.

Today when I was using my IBM Thinkpad R51 the screen went black and the machine shut itself down. It restarted normally but after about 20 minutes did the same thing. I never got a warning or any kind...


your battery could be failing,thats the most obvious thing.Then you might have accidentaly set the sleep mode,if you have this facility in your software(most pc's do).you must just search through your soft to see if you have enabled this function--good luck!

A blank screen on ibm thinkpad R51


your wires connecting from your laptop hardware to your display is messed up and is only "re-connected" and "hot-wired" by your action of closing/opening the lid.... use your warranty... your problem is when your warranty is expired so be glad this happened when you still have warranty
