Question about IBM ThinkPad 600 E Notebook

1 Answer

Battery Life this 1998 IBM thinkpad 600 was handed down to me. I got it started but the previous user has netscap and seemed to have used it fr his buisness. It won't allow my juno CD to install and error messages keep comming . I was thinking I should purchase a new battery. I have the AC adapter and keep it charged. But does the battery have to be changed periodically?

As long as the battery is working properly it doesn't need to be changed. Laptop batteries are like any battery the more you use them the faster they wear out. If available you should always use the power supply.

IBM Thinkpad T30, MT2366 & MT2367 Hardware Maintenance Manual

http://www.elhvb.com/mobokive/edwin/laptops/IBM/THINKPAD%20T30.PDF

Now,...I found this website that has the Users Manual for the IBM ThinkPad T30.

http://safemanuals.com/annexe_Install%20Guide_IBM_THINKPAD%20T30-_E.htm

You go to the right, where it has the orange bar, and ->User manual IBM ThinkPad T30 - Install Guide, in it.
Under this heading this is a PDF file icon. Under the icon it states -> Download the complete user guide
(484 Ko)
I clicked on it. It brings you to a page where you look at numbers that come tumbling down into 4 boxes.
You type the numbers as they come tumbling down, one by one in the box on the right.
(You'll see what I mean)
After the 4 numbers have been typed into that box, you go below, and click on Download the users guide.
I read their contract. You just use the down arrow on the right to scroll it down.
From reading it, it looks legit.
This is all I can tell you. I didn't download it, and don't know about it. Choice is yours now.

The first link on top I do know about. I downloaded it, and everything is fine. It's a Hardware Maintenance Manual, but may have some of the general user information you need.

Hi there.
Errors 161, 192, 163.
All three of these errors are connected to the back up battery.
To resolve this problem:
1. open memory flap on base of laptop (small philips screwdriver required)
2. find the small connector with 1 black & 1 red wire coming from it.
3. disconnect above connector and gently pull the Red&black wires. The backup battery should just pull out from under the casing.
4. get replacement battery. Either
a. call IBM spares (07900 247 490 in UK) and ask for FRU:
02K6502. UK price is about £8 + £15 delivery + VAT.
b. if comfortable with soldering iron: Carefully open the packaging on the backup battery using a sharp knife.
Remove the solder tags from the battery (these are spot welded so need to be cut/broken off). Buy a new CR2025 battery from any computer shop, jeweler, or camera shop.
Using electrical tape, insulate all round edge of battery
Solder the leads onto the new battery - note polarity. Red wire to +, black wire to -.
Using more insulating tape, wrap battery so that all exposed metal is covered.
5. put new battery into laptop (reverse steps 1-3)
6. start up computer, error 192 has gone, but still shows 161, 163. Select OK.
7. reset date & time, and OK
8. when screen shows 'O / I' restart laptop using on/off switch at side.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
