Q: Thinkpad T460s LCD Unit Replacement

Hello all,I recently bought a Thinkpad T460s with no LCD Unit off of eBay. I've been looking around and there are no complete LCD Unit assemblies under the compatible parts page. Is there another model (t450s, t470s) that I can buy an LCD Unit for, and put it on this laptop myself?Thank you in advance

I brought a brand new  HP envy unit  for my son's school last July 30 2016 from authorized retailer here in the Philippines and after only 2 months ( 1st week of October) of minimal usage ranging from typing, surfing and playing casual steam games it suddenly stopped working unable to turn on. I brought the unit to  the authorized retailer where i bought it who in turn asked me to bring it to a HP authorized repair center where diagnosis of defective motherboard was made. We decided then to bring the unit to HP repair center directly  on October 14 and up to now it isn't fixed yet. In fairness HP repair center is constantly updating me with emails telling me that the defective parts is being imported from other countries and so on and so forth. I am totally peeve as the unit costs 60,000 pesos (1,200 US$) and yet the motherboard become defective at so short a time. It has been three weeks,  almost a month now and yet it isnt fixed yet. My son depends a lot on this laptop for his studies and he agonizes a lot as he hasnt any laptop to do his school works. I think i got a lemon product and i would like HP Philippines to give me a brand new replacement as this cause enough pain already. Please help me to forward this sentiment to the proper authority who would help me with this issue.

I need a replacement for my H key and hinges for my T460s.  The only site that has keys for the T460s is www.quikfixlaptopkeys.com and they seem to be perpetually out of stock of the H key, both back lit and non back lit.  Lenovo in their wisdom refuses to sell individual keys and only sells the whole keyboard.  I'd be willing to pay good money if someone has trashed their computer for their fully functionl H key hinges, or if someone knows for sure of a place that sells T460s keys.  Every other site that I've searched so far only goes as high as 430 or so.  Help!!!!

Dear Forum Users,

The original HDD in my notebook has reached its life cycle so I have to replace it.

I would like to know which purchasable HDD units are available for this particular notebook model?

Could I use any SATA 2.5'' notebook HDD as a replacement drive or the Toshiba branded ones are suitable exclusively?

A:HDDs suitable as a replacement unit for Satellite Pro L300-1B9?

> Could I use any SATA 2.5'' notebook HDD as a replacement drive or the Toshiba branded ones are suitable exclusively?

Yes, usually all SATA 2.5? HDDs should be compatible since the SATA controller is downwards compatible and even if you would use an SATA II or SATA III HDD, the notebook should be able to handle such device.
But of course the performance would be limited to SATA I

Hi,

I had a Surface Pro 3 running Windows 10 Pro that started giving very poor battery performance and the case was getting very hot.

MS agreed to either repair/replace under warranty but I needed to ship it back.

Before I shipped it back I did a Windows 10 System Image Backup to a USB drive hopeing that if MS replaced with a new Surface pro 3 I would be able to restore the Image to the new unit.

MS has as I thought replaced the Surface Pro 3 with a new one but I am struggling to restore the image to this new one.

It is asking for a recovery Key ?

Am I right in thinking that you can restore the Image to a replacement unit ?

Many thanks for your help

A:Windows 10 System Image Recovery On Replacement Unit

No. The system image you have done on the old Surface Pro cannot be applied to another Surface Pro.

If you go to the folder that contains the system image backup, you will see that the folder has a name. That name is in reference to the machine it took the backup from.
Your new surface pro has a different computer name. Do a new system image with that new surface and you'll see it has a different name.

I broke my T460s' QHD non-touch screen (grabbed the laptop by the bezel and cracked the screen, this was never a problem on my older Thinkpads :/), and shopping for a replacement is actually a little tricky. On the back of the screen, I see:VVX14T058J0216023TP/N SD10G56715FRU 00NY406 I went to the pcsupport.lenovo.com website to look for the replacement part numbers, and it says 00NY406 and 00HN877 in the list. However there's a little dropdown on 00NY406 that says "Substitutes (2)", and shows 00HN878 and 00NY413 as well. This is the tricky part: I see in the pictures for the 00HN878, and the stickers actually say 00HM878, and VVX14T058J0016042T. Are all 40 pin connector screens with the same mounting holes compatible? When searching ebay or Amazon or aliexpress the sellers seem to suggest any of the 40 pin connector screens are cross compatible. I'm a little hesitant to buy a screen that I'm not 100% sure will fit. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Hi all, Quick question on battery replacements.. I have a T460s whose second battery recently showed it was having issues (on 46% of max charge available). I thought replacing the battery would be trivial but this is proving an exercise in futility. For reference the laptop type is: 20F9The battery in question is FRU: 01AV406 When I check this battery against the replacements site (https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/partslookup), it indicates that the battery is out of stock. It also indicates that there are a few replacement options, 01AV407, 01AV408, 01AV405. All of which are also not in stock. After chatting with support on this issue, I was advised to call the parts department a partner - Encompass. Unfortunately, their department closes at 3pm PST which is pretty annoying. However when I search for the part (01AV406) on their website (https://lenovo.encompass.com), I'm left with an additional alternative 01AV462 (also out of stock but at least in stock 1/29). My question is, which of these sites to believe or are these all compatible? I find this a little absurd that this information is so unclear and annoying that Lenovo can't keep anything in stock.Double all that since I want to replace my primary battery as well (which will be back in stock on 3/10/19). Insert eye roll here. Any advice anyone can shed here would be apprciated or any other tips for getting these batteries replaced.

Hiseems T460s (20F9) is wors than my previous laptop T420s, I can't move it so freely as before. At certain point the mouse cursor just stops moving and have to use force with a finger to make it move anywhere. I noticed the cap hole is now much smaller than f.ex. T420s, perhaps this is the reason for it. I found a link on the net to make the movement possible better;http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/thinkpad-t460s-trackpoint-mod.790347/In addition, previously there came several Caps with the laptop, now there is not a single extra one. So I don't dare to try the fix above link before I have at least one extra cap in case something goes wrong.So the question is what is the product code for the Thinkpad T460s Trackpoint Cap collection? I tried to look in the net, hard to find.  I used Lenovoguickpick and the possible code might be this;ThinkPad Super Low Profile TrackPoint Cap Set (Part # 4XH0L55146)Then again googling that with amazon produces no results so can't get those anywhere. Any help appreciated, Thank You.

I have a Thinkpad T460s since a couple of months. It's the i7 edition with 20GB/1TB edition. The device has been working fine so far, although the CPU fan had to be replaced shortly after I got it (rattling noise). Since a couple of days, the Thinkpad is spinning up the fan very often. Just a simple interaction such as opening Chrome triggers the fan to blow quite loud for some time (20-30s at least). When compiling using Visual Studio, the fan almost spins to the loudest it possibly can. The thing is: it didn't do that all of the time I've had it.  Even when it's completely idle (say 0-2%), the fan still humms a little bit (it didn't do that before either). Could this indicate a hardware issue? I have NBD support but should know whether this could indicate some failure.Thanks for any advice.

Hi, Since this morning, my 3 week old ThinkPad T460s started making some weird fan noise. When spinning up and also while slowing down (so not on higher speeds), there's a rattling noise coming from the laptop. Sounds a bit as if the fan is brushing against something or perhaps some trembling/interference?Also at really slow fan activity, this is audible quite heavily. Up until now, that noise wasn't audible at all. Should I be calling in support (I have on-site support for this machine)? I don't assume this is normal for a new machine to happen? Thanks!

I have searched all forums including this one and have been unable to find a resolution to my issue.I have had my laptop (Thinkpad T460s) for just over a year now and use it for work daily. I was using it with no issue at lunch, but when I opened the lid around 3 hours later - the screen was black and the laptop seemed to be stuck in sleep mode. I tried a hard reset and now I can not even get the Lenovo post menu to show.If I press the power button, the keyboard momentarily turns on the backlighting and the power button stays illuminated, after about a minute the power button turns off. This entire time the laptop screen is completely black, I don't see the Lenovo post menu and therefore have no acces to the BIOS or OS.I have tried using the hardware reset button on the bottom of the laptop, removing the 2 discreet batteries, removing the CMOS battery, removing all batteries and resetting the RAM. None of this has gotten me any headway on resolving this issue. I am going to try contacting technical support but am hoping someone may help me find a quick and simple resolution to this issue.

Hello everybody, I purchased a some time ago a Thinkpad T460s laptop, which had a fried motherboard. "No problem" I thought and sent the machine to a non-Lenovo-authorized repair service. Few days ago I got the laptop back with a new working motherboard. However, not all was such smooth sailing. I installed Windows 8.1 to the laptop and noticed these issues: The BIOS would give me error codes 2200 and 2201, regarding a lack of serial number, machine type and UUIDSecure Boot doesn't activate Windows I think I can resolve the activation issue by just getting a new key and injecting it to the BIOS. However, I'd like to remove the BIOS errors as well. Is there anything I can do to fix these issues on my own? The machine doesn't have any warranty left, so I guess that bringing the machine to a Lenovo-approved service facility would cost a ton of money (which I don't currrently have).  I have tried running AMIDEWIN utility (only got an SMBIOS error from it), the UEFI version of it threw me an incompatibility error If needed, I can pay a little to the chap who can help me out Cheers-S

I wish to record a low level stereo signal from the aux output of a stereo tuner using my Thinkpad.  The T460s has no input plug for a mic or other audio device.  Is there an alternative?  Is there any HDMI or USB adapter that will accomplish this task?  Thanks.  

A:Stereo line-in recording on T460s Thinkpad

Welcome to the Community
 
Google "external sound card" and "Line In" with quotes around them and you'll get a zillion hits for USB devices. Some are better than others. There are cheapo dongles that do a passable job all the way up to professional ones with XLR inputs. (The ThinkPad's HDMI connecction is outgoing only)
 
Since you said "tuner," I imagine you're recording off of the radio. Unless you plan to use an HD radio, any of the less-expensive models should do a good job. Just make sure you get one with the jack pack you need that'll work with the OS and recording you're using.

Has anyone experience fan running at full speed after updating BIOS to newest version 1.30? According to changelog a fan issues should be fixed but from my experience they got worse - much worse. Previously full-speed-fan issue was happening once a month, now after each suspend it spins at full speed. Also suspending/resuming doesn't help like it used to. This is a bit clowny. Using loudy laptop is not very convinient. I'm using Linux btw, if that makes any difference. I've seen reports of similar problem on X270 too (on appropriate  sub-forum).

Good day Everyone, I was just provided with a 'new' laptop at work to replace my old one and when wanted to check the specs on the Lenovo webiste, I noticed that the following message popped up:Sorry, this product is no longer available This pop-up message really called my attention because even if I know that certain products may have shorter support or sale life span, I think this one is not too old not to be available anymore.I am now a little concerned that this machine may not be that good a product and will be able to perform as expected in the years to come. I don't have the luxury to exchange my designated system too often so I just want to make sure I am doing the right thing. The upgrade is made now because I am having problems with my current T430s, but those are mainly software issues, I just want to kill two birds with one stone by getting a new image with an upgraded machine.I read some of the comments written and most of them are good.So, even though I am the one who would decide whether to upgrade or keep working with the current machine, I am still puzzled by the fact that the new one is no longer available for purchase. So, does any one know why this model is now discontinued?Thank you!Moris

Hi all,  I recently purchased a T460s with some upgrades on the specifications (RAM 16 GB, GPU GeForce 930M and etc.). The initial operating system was set to Windows 7, so I upgraded to Windows 10 64 bit. I manually downloaded all the drivers required for this laptop and windows 10. While everything else runs pretty well, the keyboard backlight does not seem to work. I haven't checked if the backlight works on the previous operating system, so I am unsure if the problem is actually from the hardwares or if the OS was updated wrong. I am pretty sure that this model supports the keyboard backlit function since the space bar has that little image on the left side that (I'm guessing) indicates the function of backlit keyboards.  I'm wondering if there are actual drivers that I must intall prior to pressing the (Fn+Spacebar) keys to turn on the backlight, or if there is a problem with my computer. If it's the case of the latter, I am thinking about resetting my laptop (reinstalling windows 10). Being aware of how long it takes to download and install all the necessary components, once I do, is there any method of backing up the computer and after the reset just using that backup to go back to the original state where I have all my programs and data?  Thanks.

Just got my new lenovo Thinkpad T460s, so far everything is going perfect. I just ran into an issue. When connecting an external screen via a standard HDMI cable to my Thinkpad T460s, the notebook does not detect the second screen. All the information on the lenovo website sugests that it should atomatically detect external screen via HDMI connection. Is there something I am missing? * Restarting does not work* Updating the display driver does not work* Cable does work on other notebooks Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello everyone, I am using a Lenovo Thinkpad T460s. When I open Lenovo System Update, I received an update called Intel Management Engine 11.8 Firmware - 7[32,64]/8.1/10[64]. I tried to install it, but then a black window pops up and disappear without any error log. Lenovo System Update said it was successfully installed, but when I open System Update again, the update appears again. I did it several times, but it just didn't work. I also tried to download and install it manually, then I received an error 8704: firmware update operation not initiated due to a sku mismatch. Can anyone help me with a solution please? I appreciate all the help from you guys. I hope you have a good day! Thank you all for reading.

Hello, community My name is Taveres Harris and I am new to the Lenovo support community. Please help me make my first experience successful. I have been tasked with deploying new Win10 PCs by the EOY. My company purchased Lenovo ThinkPad T460s(s) and Lenovo ThinkCentre M900(s). I didn't have any trouble creating the image and uploading it to the WDS server, which is Server 2012 R2. However, I am having no luck deploying the image to the PCs. Here's what is known: *Each PCs MAC address has been added to the 'Allowed' filter on my DHCP server*Each PC has the same ethernet LAN drivers (Intel 1219-V 64-bit Windows 10)*WDS is configured correctly (I have no trouble deploying images to my Windows 7 machines)*Boot.wim for my Windows 10 machines is correctly added to the WDS server Here's the issue: When I boot a PC, press F12 to initate a PXE boot, and choose the NIC adapter to boot, I have no trouble. From there, I get to my boot options listed in the WDS server and choose the Windows 10 boot image. From there, WDS goes to the setup window, and eventually, I get a message stating the following: WdsClient: An error occured while obtaining an IP address from the DHCP server. Please check to ensure that there is an operational DHCP server on this network segment. I have researched the possible reasons for that error, and have narrowed it down to the LAN driver not being provisioned for Windows Server 2012 R2. For my Windows 7 machines, I ca... Read more

Hello, I've been having this problem for a while and can't seem to find any solution for it.I'm running a Thinkpad T460s in dual boot, with Windows 10 and Ubuntu. The problem is that the windows instalation doesn't have Digital Audio Output listed in the sound output devices and as such I can't hear any sound from my TV when I've got hdmi plugged in. I've tried everything, reinstalling drivers, updating with other drivers from intel, even resetting windows but noting seems to work. I'm not sure what details I can provide here in order to help solve this issue so I'll edit as requests come in. UPDATE: It might be a windows issue, since one of my friends has a T460 that had no problems untill he opened it one day and the digital audio outputs suddenly disappeared. Also HDMI audio works for both of us on Linux. Any advice would be really appreciated.

Hi, Laptop: lenovo ThinkPad T460sOS : Windows 10 64-bit(Upgraded from windows 7) fully updatedDrivers/BIOS/Firmware : Fully updated with Lenovo VantageWarranty/Support : Yes The Laptop screen goes off randomly. The Laptop is definitely on and only the display is off. I need to do a hard power off (keep pressing the power button) to to swithc off and on to get the display again. after each power off, windows eventlog ( System) will show ->The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first.

After upgrading the BIOS, I am having an issue with my battery. I finally got around to troubleshooting an outstanding issue with my RAM (It was maxing out at 10 of my 20gb of RAM), I found that updating my BIOS resolved the issue. I purchased the laptop in May 2016, and this was the first time I had updated my BIOS. I used Lenovo Solution Center / Vantage to run the updates. I updated my BIOS to N1CET68W (6/20/18). While troubleshooting I ran battery report, and I don't think it is a coincidence that the date I updated the BIOS on is also the date at which one of my batteries stopped working - Attached with a line drawn for when I updated the BIOS. My battery now caps out at 62%. Battery 1: 68% and charging. Battery 2: 0%. Battery 2 will not charge any more. Battery 1: 00HW022, Sanyo. Design Capacity: 23510 mWh, full charge capacity: 17840mWh (Acceptable degradation for 2 year old battery)Battery 2: 01AV406, SMP. Design Capacity: 26060 mWh, full charge capacity: 1770mWh (Significant drop-off once BIOS updated). I have already performed laptop surgery and made sure both batteries are connected. Unplugged both of them, and hard reset my laptop (holding power button for ~2 minutes with batteries out). I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers, and then updating them. Windows 10 x64.
