Here is the link to the ftp: location for the maintenance manual:
ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/62p9631.pdf

This applies to IBM ThinkPad T20, T21, T22, and T23 series machines.

Hello,

Was just browsing the board.
IBM has a PDF somewhere on their site which details the exact disassembly process. I had a screen problem a while back (fixed it once, but it's out again). It is fairly straight forward disassembly, but as always, keep track of/lay out all the parts in an orderly manner as you proceed.
Sorry, don't have the exact site address. It's been a while. Maybe try 'T20 maintenance' once your at the IBM site.

Best,

Jim

IBM T20 screen bad, IBM i1400 screen good-Compatible?


Yes, it's possible, but unless you are a qualified laptop technician, I recommend that you take both computers to a qualified technician, to get the job done properly and safely and correctly.

I have a ibm thinkpad t20 and when the internal battery died the computer started asking for a password when booting up. I know how to reset the password on a desktop but this thinkpad has me stumped. Can...


Hi,

the default BIOS password for this model is merlin but if that doesn't work you have a hard drive password set and may for lack of a better term be screwed. You can try zero wiping the harddrive from another system assuming you have the right cabling/adapters.

If the Hardrive is locked but the BIOS password works you can also acquire a new hard drive cheaper than a password cracker in most cases.

Hope this helps FixYa,

IBM Thinkpad T20 screen problem


If it was fixed before without changing any hardware, it was probably a connection problem. Check the connectors on the screen, screen to inverter, and screen to board.

Good afternoon Lewis!
Close to the right rear corner, there is a small black plastic latch that needs to be moved to the rear. That will cause a blue handle to pop out slightly. You grasp that handle and pull. That should release the CD drive and allow for it's removal.
