Question about Lenovo ThinkPad T61 Notebook
A faint line appears down the middle of my screen. Does anyone know if this means my screen has been damaged (and if so, how can it be fixed) or can this be resolved by adjusting my desktop settings.
If the line runs top to bottom and is perfectly straight then it is the panel beginning to fail.
The LCD that you see connects to a driver board behind it with a very fragile plastic ribbon strip. Any even slight damage to the connection on either side and you begin toget the problem you have.
It could have been caused by a few things.. Excess pressure opening the lid will cause it, as will closing the lid quickly too often.
Flexing the screen (opening the lid only using one hand on one side).
As you see it's more a pressure related issue then anything.
The normal "repair" is to replace the screen. To have the original driver tabs corrected can be a very expensive exercise.
If the line is feint enough, then adjusting the brightness and contrast may make it useable long enough until it is retired or a replacement screen can be found.
