Can you plug in an external monitor? If the problem persists on the external monitor it may be a hardware fault, heat problem or a driver issue. If the problem is only with the internal LCD then possibly the cable between the laptop and the LCD is faulty or the LCD is damaged somehow.

Tapping the edges to "fix" the issue does suggest ath hardware fault though.

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.

Bottom half of laptop screen is colors with white lines vertically. Was able to control by changing position of screen, no lnger able to do that. Thin k Pad Lenovo T60


Hi,

Try to hook up an external monitor just to check that it is not a problem with the video card of the laptop. Most likely the LCD cable is loose or the LCD inverter needs to be replaced.

Hope this helps.

I have the same problem with my IBM T60. Screen is very dark, and I have to move it up and down to try to get it to flicker on. Right now, I have another monitor plugged in.
The laptop is about 4 years old and has been used daily.

Replace LCD screen


All modern thinkpads are similar, you start by taking apart keyboard and top cover, then you unscrew hinges and remove screen. Here is some movie:

IBM ThinkPad R40 -- Fixing the black-out LCD Screen

This is not an easy job, there is risk to cause further damage to your laptop if you do not have enough experience.
