Question about IBM ThinkPad T20 2647 Notebook
Last night i worked with my t20 without any problem. morning when i switched on my laptop i saw the windows with dark background without having backlight. plz help me
While the T20 is on and manifesting the dim display....
1. try to slowly close the lid (but not totally closing it) and then pulling it back to its original position slowly. Tell me if the light goes back.
if by doing that action the backlight lights up, you are most likely faced with a Flex cable problem. You might need to buy this from ebay. (dim display problem in T20 series is very common these days due to wear and tear of the flex cable)
2. Also try to use a pen to turn on and off the limit switch that triggers the backlight. This is located above the keyboard below the lcd. See what happens.
