No Display Lenovo Thinkpad

Q: No Display Lenovo Thinkpad

Hey everyone,
I recently ran into the issue that the backlight on my Lenovo Thinkpad W520 for the display wont light up ( i took the LCD and shined a flashlight behind it to ensure that it was being digitized which it was). It worked fine one day until I turned on the laptop and the screen was black. I have reseated all the RAM, bought new cables for the display, a new inverter for the display, and even a new screen. I have unplugged the CMOS battery to reset the BIOS, and tried holding the power button for long amounts of time with the battery and power cord disconnected. Holding the power button down and restarting fixed my Thinkpad T410 when the same issue happened 3 times before, but it wont fix this issue. All of this never happened on the T410 for the 2 years I had Windows 7 on it but now both machines run Windows 10 Pro. I removed the hard drive from the W520 just in case it was a problem with the drive. Also I am testing the screen with the laptop display assembly disassembled. Please help, I am lost as to what I can do.

A customer brought in the their Lenovo Thinkpad 450s because their screen was failing.They already had purchased a new screen and gave me the e-mail confirmation from the order that showed that it was the correct screen that they needed.However, the new display is still black.When I hook up an external monitor, nothing but a mouse pointer shows.But I can connect to the external monitor if I power on the laptop and then immediately close the lid.The external display then shows the desktop.But then I lift the laptop lid, the laptop screen is still black. Even when I change the display settings to extend the desktop.  There was one brief occurrence with the new screen, where I saw a very faint lenovo logo appear when the splash screen loaded. But then it went completely black again. And has not done even the faint image since, it was just a fluke occurrence.And when I shine a flashlight, I still see no display. While the external monitor is displaying the desktop and I then reopen the laptop lid, the laptop screen is recognized as being there. ( Display settings, shows monitor 1 and 2 ).But the laptop screen is still black. Any thoughts? Is there a lid sensor or magnet that activates the screen? I can't find anything.

First of all, let me explain the problem from the beginning. When everything is normal on the computer in the morning, when I run the computer in the morning, the screen is black, but I noticed that the computer is working. When I look carefully, the screen is black, but I saw it. I saw the screen is distorted. I put the screen back on the screen and I saw that it was black. The screen was showing for fifteen minutes before but now it has not. The screen that I removed from the working computer is black screen and when I look carefully, something appears.

I want to buy a used Lenovo Thinkpad T450s with Full HD Display. In former discriptions I read, that the Full HD-Display ALWAYS is a IPS-Display, but the seller now told me, that that one has a FHD-TN-Display. Is this possible? I thought, that ONLY the WXGA++-Version (1600x900) is delivered as a TN-Dislpay.Greetings, GerhardFormer Review: Abhängig von der gewählten Konfiguration stellt das 14,0 Zoll große Display des T450s entweder 1.600 x 900 oder 1.920 x 1.080 Bildpunkte dar, was einer Pixeldichte von 131 respektive 157 ppi entspricht. ... In puncto Helligkeit (300 statt 250 cd/m²) und Kontrastverhältnis (700:1 statt 400:1) schneidet das teurere Display laut Datenblatt deutlich besser ab, zudem verspricht das IPS-Panel ? die WXGA++-Version basiert auf der TN-Technik ? stabilere Blickwinkel.

I recently bought Lenovo Thinkpad L380 and I see that display is very dull though it supports anti-glare. I keep it to the maximum brightness but still, I see that the display is not bright enough (No Power mode is ON). I tried changing the brightness values using the Intel Graphic Display settings but it doesn't seem working out well as it just enhances the overall brightness and the screen looks weird. Has anyone faced this kind of behavior?

Hello, I am new here and I realy hope you can help me! I've have the Lenovo Thinkpad S440 (as in the description). It is the model with SSD, i5 U, Intel integrated graphics, 8GB Ram etc. The display which was build in was the HD+ matt model (1600x900 px) I've had some water in bag back pouring into the screen. I tried to fix it and after I disassembled the screen, I got all the water out of it but the backlight was not working anymore. So I ordered a new display. While I was looking for it, I came to the knwoledge, that you can take a replacement screen from the Lenovo Thinkpad T440s, at least considering that most 1600x900px displays seem to be the same for each of them. So I thought: okay, then I should be able to use the 1080p display for the t440s as well, since it also has a 30 pin eDP connector.So I ordered one and put it in my S440 and it fits perfektly. But now the display only gives a really dim short fliker while booting the machine and nothing is viewable, so the display stays completely black. Is there a possibility to fix it or can I only use the 1600x900 px displays on the s440? As I sayd the screen fits perfect and the 30 pin eDP connector also fits perfekt into the new display. If I use an external display via HDMI, the image is shown normal on this external screen. Also it seems that the new internal screen is not recognised, since in the intel graphics options I cannot chose it as the main screen, only if I go for dual screen it is an option. ... Read more

Hello, i have some issues with the display of my Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 260. It shows some yellow spots on the display, especially in the lower corners. I have already contacted the Lenovo Support Team concerning warranty. But Lenovo claims, that my Laptop is no longer covered by the warranty, because i have removed the lamination sheet of the display and replaced it by another one. So now i want to exchange the display on my own. Is it possible to order a display without any further services, so that i can do the exchange of my display by my self? I haven´t found any website (including Lenovo) that offers the display seperately without any installation service. So i just want to have the spare part. I got the following Model:Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 260 with a Full HD DisplayType: 20FES00000 I would be grateful for any help.

We tried to fix the problem with using the newst firmware / drivers and bios update.

Hi everyone, I bought a Lenovo ThinkPad P50 Signature Edition with a 4K matte display. Over time, I noticed that my display got laggier and laggier at full 4K resolution. If I lower my display resolution to 1920x1080, my display is fairly smooth. I'm not sure why my display isn't smooth at full resolution. I also noticed yesterday that my volume hotkey buttons above the full keypad don't work properly. My volume hot keys above my keyboard work fine, however. Is there any way to alleviate or fix these two issues?

Hey everyone, I am facing troubles installing the newest drivers for the graphics adapter. First of all basic information about my machine. Lenovo Thinkpad W541 OS- Windows 7 Ultimate, Service Pack 1 System- Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4710MQ CPU @ 2,50GHz 2,50GHz- Installed memory: 16,0 GB- System tpye: 64-bit Operating System Dispaly adapters- Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600- NVIDIA Quadro K2100MAbove you can see the current driver versions of the display adapters. Unfortunately installing the driver update for display adapters from the lenovo support page (https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/se/de/downloads/ds037642) didn't work. Once I got a BSOD after rebooting and the other time the driver versions just stayed the same without change. Situations when I feel that something is wrong with the drivers are for instance when I want to launch a game. After launching the game,  the screen turns immediately black and I fall back to the desktop. When launching another game, the screen just flickers black and white.  I would be grateful if somebody could help me with that matter since after hours of research I haven't been able to solve the problem myself.  Please let me know if more information is required.  Cheers,Simon

I have just purchase the Lenovo Thinkpad W540. But currently we have issue with the built-in display. The phenomenon as below: 1. When power on - The built in display can show welcome screen, and even enter the BIOS setup screen. If let it boot normally, the built-in screen then off.2. When booted to Windows 8. The built in display still off. If I connect an external display to the VGA connector, the external display work well. Checked the display option see that it is "clone display --> Built in + External Display". I suspect that there is some thing wrong with the display setting that I don't know how to adjust to get the built-in display works properly. Note that I can see the build in display backlighting but there is no picture shown when in screen cloning setup. Can some one help on this ? Regards Triet Tran

The way I read the X1YG1 base specs it supports two independent monitors.  Apologies, but I can't quite parse your post.  Does "apart from laptop screen" mean that you want 3 monitors total, or two and the laptops's display is off?

A:Lenovo ThinkPad

First thing I would test is the hard drive, but as you cannot get into the Bios to change the boot order you will have to remove the drive and link it up to a desktop PC using a "Laptop Hard Drive Adapter". Then you can download the diagnostics for Windows from the manufacturers site listed below.

Have you tried to boot from the OS disc? Do you have Recovery Discs?

I have an old ThinkPad T500 that I was planning to give to my younger brother so he can do school work.  Running Windows Vista Ultimate.  A few months back, the internal display was acting intermittently, meaning it would not display anything (dark screen) but if you connected an external monitor, it would work fine.  After a second or third reboot, the internal display would come on. This morning I turned it on and the monitor had parallel color lines in various patterns.  I can hear the laptop running and booting up.   After a couple of minutes, I plugged in an external monitor - nothing.  I rebooted the machine and the same color pattern was displaying on the internal display.  This time, the external monitor came on and booted up in 800 x 600 mode.  When I went into Device Manager > Display it shows "Standard VGA Adapter".  I recall that this laptop comes with switchable graphics between the Intel GMA 4500MHD and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650 (256 MB).  Is the video card bad or is it just the actual display?

It could be both, difficult to say without having the actual ThinkPad at hand.
 
I don't remember by heart the BIOS settings in the T500, but please try going to the BIOS (press F1 right after turning on the laptop) and go to "Config" and "Display", select only the integrated graph, save and reboot.  Keep us posted how it goes...
 
Hopefully that would fix the screen problems...

After a couple months of flawless use, I'm having trouble with my display on this old model.

For a day or so, the display would go dark at random times, requiring a restart, after which it was fine for awhile.

Now it has gone out completely.

The funny thing is is that it's not "completely" out. I can still make out, but just barely, the display. It's too dark to read or navigate, but I can tell the desktop is there somewhere.

I've plugged an external monitor into it and it has worked fine.

I'm hoping it's a simple fix. The battery is very old and won't charge over 15%, and if that is the problem I'll be glad, but this is with it plugged into the ac adapter.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

I was told that the display on a laptop is very fragil, and that you should never, NEVER touch it with anything. What is a safe way of cleaning the TFT display? I work in a pretty dusty environment and the TFT is developing a "crust" which I want to remove before it gets any worse. Any ideas out there?

Hi everyone, I've seen a lot of discussion on this topic but still could not find a solution for my case. So, I have a basic FHD display on my P51 and no integrated Pantone calibration tool. Could you please advise my which is the best way to calibrate the display (also has an issue with yellow tint). Do I need to by external device or just download certain color profile or software? Many thanks!
