Question about IBM Lenovo ThinkPad T60p Notebook

Open Question

Potentially dead IBM Thinkpad screen however need diagnosis help

I have an IBM Thinkpad T60P laptop with the 15" 1600x1200 screen that currently does not display anything on screen.

Connecting the machine to an external monitor works correctly and also the backlight on the monitor comes on (I believe) however no display. I believe it is a faulty panel but before I go spending £££ on a new panel, CCFL, inverter etc I'd like to get your opinion on how to diagnose and locate the exact problem.

Any help would be appreciative...
Many thanks. Dino

SOURCE: T41 IBM thinkpad monitor goes off

Saw exactly the same think on another t41 i was trying to fix. If it was moved at all screen went off.

Turned out it was corrosion on the motherboard that was causing the problem.

Has it been liquid damaged or got damp in the past?

SOURCE: double display with my IBM think pad T43

have you tried Function F7/F8 ?
Make sure that your display driver is installed correctly.
I had the same Laptop as you did and was able to have dual monitor.
Also check your Display driver in your control panel and make sure it set to dual monitor.

SOURCE: Thinkpad T23 screen problem

If you take the casing apart on your monitor and pull the chip out gentley, look at the ribbon wire that goes from the monitor to your computer. It may be cracked from opening and closing. That is what was wrong with mine and it sounds like we have the same problem. I had to use another montintor until my tech group could get me a new one. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: ibm thinkpad t43 backlight inverter issue

Did you say the the video output flickers on and off when you connect an external monitor to the video output. If the inverter is faulty this would not affect the video output and the external monitor would not flicker but if the external monitor flickers it would point to a video card problem.

Laptop ibm t60 screen white, but works fine with external lcd screen connected by VGA cable


Hi,

Check your laptop's LCD connections. One of the below items may need replacement or you may need to just reinsert them, might be loose.

- LCD cable
- LCD inverter
- LCD itself

NOTE: Most often, the LCD inverter is the culprit.

Hope this helps.

I just installed 2 gigs of RAM into my Thinkpad T60p and the BIOS does not see it. Yikes! what can be wrong. It seems to be located correctly.


One of the RAM module may be incompatible. Are both RAM modules the same type and make?
Try inserting 1Gb RAM module at a time to see if the BIOS can see the RAM.

Red Green stripes on IBM Thnikpad T60p tft monitor


Those are dead pixels if you want to get rid of them you will probably need to replace the monitor. They will probably charge you an arm and a leg to replace it so you might get a second quote from Computer repair shop.
