    I have the exact same problem as described above. Same model, same year of purchase, same make. I checked the link that is given by the expert. The screen would cost me INR 13k. I might as well buy a new machine, instead of investing for this one. Can we get it repaired somehow. Any ideas?

My IBM Thinkpad screen has gone dark but I can still see a bit. Is there a key to brighten the screen?


Try attaching an external monitor to the laptop & see if you could get any display on it. If this is successful, then you might have either a faulty LCD cable or screen inverter board.
The LCD cable transfers data signal from the motherboard & video card to the LCD screen. It also supplies high voltage DC power to the screen inverter board. The screen inverter board works as a power supply for the backlight lamp mounted inside the LCD screen. It converts low voltage DC power to high voltage AC power needed for the backlight lamp

My IBM R52 laptop displays some vertical thin lines (red,green,blue,white,etc). I noticed this problem arises basically IBM R52 and R80 models. Some of my friends too are suffering from this problem and...


This sounds similar to a fault i had with an old dell laptop... very thin vertical lines running the length of the screen. Unfortunately it was an LCD problem, the screen was kaput replacing the screen solved the problem.

To test if it is an LCD fault, simply plug your laptop into an external monitor... if you get no lines on external monitor then its a faulty LCD screen.

Is that solution genuine enough for you?

LCD Display problem


From your description it sound like you have a faulty video cable or the video connector on the motherboard is loose.
Reseat the connector and it may solve your problem.

The problem is CCFL light bulb in the screen. It is starting to die :( Can be replaced but that is not an easy task (easier is to replace screen as new bulb comes with it)
