I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

so the ebay seller i bought 2 bulbs from is telling me that those 3 types of screens need different backlight.

which i suspect is BS to cover up for bad quality of backlight they sell.

in another post i asked about the screen being dimmer than original after replacing ccfl.

well i looked on google and did not find any info on that.

dell700m turned out as dim as the failing backlight i replaced. (WXGA)
was shorter than original.
IBM T41 turned out alot dimmer than original failing backlight (SXGA)
this one was exactly size and diameter of the original and fit right in.

from what i understand the inverter is made to power specific(lenght,diameter) bulb. since there is no filament, its all gas the identical size ccfl bulb should light up same brightness.(unless its dying)

I've had my T500 with WXGA TFT LED Backlighting for about a week and I have to say I am very unimpressed.The Thinkpad works fine but the screen is terrible. Everything on the screen is washed out and videos are pixelated.I wish i'd never chosen it. I'm considering sending it back to get the non backlit LCD.What experiences have other users had with it? And for that matter with the standard WXGA? CheersLyndon

Answer:Lenovo X201 Screen Upgrade from WXGA to WXGA+

Yes, but the panel is hard to source, it costs around 500 to 700 dollars to get a new one. I was tempted to do it, but got put off by the cost. I could of get a complete machine for that sort of price.

Answer:Replace T400 WXGA LCD with WXGA+ ?

You can easily change out the WXGA panel with a WXGA+ as long as you don't change it from a CCFL to a LED backlit panel. The LCD cable is the same for both the WXGA and WXGA+ panel CCFL baclit LCD. If you want to change it out to a WXGA+ LED backlit LCD, you will also need it's respective LCD cable, as it is different than the cable for the CCFL backlit LCD. Click here and here for referencesMessage Edited by ortegaluis on 07-29-2009 08:49 PM

It's about a part being CRU (Customer Replaceable Unit) or not. There is a good definition of it on page 65 of the manual.
 
An LCD is not CRU, so a customer should not replace it itself otherwise a problem may not be covered by warranty.

My sister dropped her T410 and cracked the LCD screen, which clearly was not covered under the basic warranty.  The $950 quote for repair was a little steep (basically the cost of the laptop) so we decided to try a repair ourselves.  I replaced the LCD screen with a model suggested by the Lenovo rep.  With the new screen in place, the backlight doesn't function at all (can see information on the screen with a flashlight but otherwise nothing).  I also put the old screen back in (which previously was backlit despite being cracked) and observed the same problem.  I made sure the LCD cable was seated firmly at both ends. Considering things as they stand now, my question is about the best route to take from here.  As I understand it, since the LED backlight is powered by the system board, we either buy a new system board or use this laptop as a "desktop" attached to a standalone monitor.  Replacing the LED sub card seems questionable for this particular problem (saw another post here with that conclusion).  We could replace the LCD cable, but it seems to me more likely that the fuse on the motherboard is blown.  If it comes down to motherboard vs. desktop use, we'll probably avoid the motherboard replacement since it is somewhat expensive. Am I missing any obvious ideas?  Should I consider replacing the LCD cable more seriously?  Is the LED sub card more relevant to the LCD/backlight than I think?  I'm hoping t...

Hi all, I have a T61p (6457-BQG) with a 15.4'' WSXGA+ (1680x1050) screen. After having worked with it for a while, I find the resolution to be a little too high for my needs since I don't want to stick my nose almost right onto the screen every time I work with the machine (Yes, my eyesight sucks). Just using a lower resolution makes everything look blurry, and since I'm on Windows XP I don't want to just change DPI or the text size because that causes graphical screwups with many applications. I wonder if it is possible to replace the current LCD with a T61 one from the 15.4'' WXGA+ (1280x800) series.

As I remember that WXGA is 1280x800 and WXGA+ is 1440x900, I prefer larger resolution but they dont have this option now. 

Answer:High Nit WXGA LED or WXGA+ LED

I *believe* the high-nit version is about 50-60 dollars more expensive than the lower-nit, high-resolution version.  Keep in mind that this is based off what I remember the WXGA+ LED option costing.

I don't know if it's the correct section to post this but I'm desperately looking for help. My Lenovo notebook has been giving me problems for months - it won't start up normally. Usually when I "on" the notebook, it will first be a BLANK SCREEN with the backlight on. For the first few times it happened, a couple of tilting and swinging of the notebook monitor would do the trick but today, it is completely blank. The first time this happened when was I closed the laptop to let it sleep for 15 minutes. When I came back and open the laptop again, the screen just won't load until I tilt it for about 2~3 times. I tried tilting and swinging to the monitor screen again but it just won't load - just a blank screen with the backlight. It has been like this for the whole day. First thing is - can I claim warrenty from Lenovo for this? It's a hardware problem. Second would be - Will this affect the memory of my laptop if I were to change the monitor? Thirdly - How long will the repair take ( approximately ) ? Will it be an on-site repair or do I have to leave it in the service center for a few days? Thanks!

New to the forum so Hello everyone.

I understand how to turn down the level of brightness through backlight control but how do I decrease the level even further? The slider in the brightness bar is all the way down (left) yet at nights the light from backlights are too bright!

Couldn't someone please help me out?

Dimming is an option but it still doesn't decrease backlight.

Answer:Backlight - Decreasing backlight Level more

let's see: there should be backlight and brightness adjustments on the monitor, plus contrast which does affect final light output somehow, plus all those except backlight should be duplicated inside video drivers on your computer and gamma on top of that. If it's a laptop then there should be some combination of Function key and arrows to adjust backlight directly. If you can't get the screen dark enough with all those controls, could be something wrong. If controls are too limited and your environment is totally dark then buy anti glare screen protector, that usually cuts the light coming out probably at least by half.

It's indeed very bright though. The screen looks a bit unclear. I compared the display with my 5 year old HP, I feel it's even worse than that. Except for the screenI, everything seems great.

Answer:WXGA LED screen problem

I got my T500 3 days ago. At that time, I immediately found 2 bad pixels(or stuck pixels?) on the screen. It made me upset but I was still trying to live with it. Today, I find 2 more! I don't know whether they are bad pixels or stucks. If I take the snap shot by PrtSc, they are can not seen on the picture I get. Either way, I am very unhappy with it, and I have asked for return.  After 4 phone calls to sales and technical support,  lenovo finally agreed to let me return it without 15% fees. By the way, one technician even doesn't know lenovo's own policy. He said there need to be at least 8 bad pixels to ask for a return. Of course I corrected him. Actually I think the performance of the T500 is great, but I just can't live with suck a flawed screen. Here are some questions I want to ask you guys: (1) What's the definition of lenovo's bad pixel ? The person on the phone said they will check the computer and then return me my money. Is there any chance that they will say that those pixels are just suck there and won't let me return it without a fee? (2) Does this happen a lot? I am considering reorder a T400 or T500, but I am not sure whether the LED screens are all of low quality.  Thanks.  Moderator Noted; edited to remove unnecessary empty space in post Message Edited by andyP on 06-08-2009 09:14 PM

Is it a usaul problem of this screen model or just a problem of my laptop?  How can I adjust contrast of the screen? I could find a button on the keyboard.   Any one can help? Thank you! Ben 

Answer:About T500 15.4 WXGA TFT Screen

I didn't find it fluorescent. Instead, the screen seems a little bit yello when the background is in fact white.You can adjust screen contrustness and brightness in the ATI Catalyst Control Center, whick will pop up when you click the mouse right key on desktop.

I'm really at the end of my rope. I've been trying everything I can in the graphics driver settings (both ATI 3470 and Intel x4500, I got the switchable graphics system) to try and make it look better, but nothing I can do is fixing it. Basically, the display looks washed out and the colors are terrible.  It's the worst display that I've ever used to put it simply (granted, the super-cheap Acer that I didn't buy probably looked worse, but I purposely avoided it because of the terrible looking display).  It is bright, but that's it really.  The contrast and saturation seems completely blown out and what is there looks grainy. I was really expecting a gorgeous display after reading the review at notebookreview.com.  But as it seems in the past, what I got was not the LG display that was in the review, but a Samsung LCD panel that looks terrible.  Is there anything that I can do other than return the laptop?  It seems very difficult (especially after reading the T61 LCD threads) to argue to Customer Service that the display `looks terrible.'  I've used multiple laptops over the years and none of them have looked this bad.    The FRU for my display is: 42X6318  SBB 14.1 W X G A +TFT I can't get anything to show up through the FRU lookup.   According to Everest Home, the display is an  LTN141BT.  Is this even an LED display?  Is the only reason for getting an LED display b...

Answer:T400 WXGA+ LED LCD bad display?

It may be time for a service call.   I just received my T400 with the LED backlit screen and the colors and contrast are excellent especially for a matte screen.  I have the same FRU according to my ship notice. I really don't like the glossy screens and the Lenovo matte screen was a factor in deciding on the T400.   I don't have a direct comparison but my first impression is that the colors and contrast are as good as a glossy screen and without the reflections.

My 4 year old laptop display appears garbled. The BIOS screen appears greenish. Also once my operating system has started up, it seems that alternate columns of pixels are not lit up. Now my laptop has been out of warranty for 2 years but i am pretty comfortable replacing parts myself. So i can try to source parts, but i am not sure if the LCD or the GPU is at fault. External display works fine, but if my understanding is correct that does not mean that the GPU is fine as it uses different buses for the internal and external output. So is it the LCD or the GPU? Is there a way to know for sure? thanks.

I have the T61 7658CTO with the WXGA+. I recently upgraded the OS to Windows7 and the maximum resolution I can set is 1280x800. On XP it used to be 1400x900. I've updated both the display and monitor with the latest drivers but no success.If I go to advanced preferences and update the monitor driver manually, there is only 1280x800 driver in the list.If I unchecked "show compatible drivers only" I get the full list of monitors, including 1400x900 (which would be the correct one). I can pick that, but when I go back to display properties it shows a generic monitor with default 1280x800 maximum resolution. I would appreciate any suggestions on how to enforce the native resolution.ThanksDan

Purchased a Polyview 19" V398 WXGA Monitor for his notebook computer. He need the monitor as he like to work at Higher Resolutions at home. And he uses the Extended Destop Feature on his notebook computer.

According to the spec, the monitor can go up to 1440 x 900 res. Previously, he was using a CRT monitor as 1600 x 1200 res. with his notebooks VGA out. However the notebook that he is using is only giving him up to 1024 x 768.

The notebook that he is using is a clone. It using SiS 740 video.

How can I can I get up to 1440 x 900?

Part from the obvious changing resolution in screen properties, we have also installed both lastest drivers from SiS website and Notebook Manufacturers website.

The only website for polyview that i have found has been the australian one (www.protac.com.au), however there is no monitor drivers there.

The other idea we had was to hard code the option of 1440 x 900 into the registry, but we had no idea where to look for that.

We established that the notebook video card chipset can go up to 1600x1200 on a CRT. So how come we can not get it to go up to 1400x900 on the TFT?

Any suggestion will help.

Answer:1440 x 900 WXGA only wants to work at 1024x768

I don't think the drivers were designed with that particular resolution in it

my acer travelmate 2420 fell down last night. (it is ok. I am writing this on my laptop. I connected it to my 19" pc monitor.)

I want to ask what is the exact damage. Display is all white with black cracks. But they look like veins on a leaf if you look closely on the lcd surface. There is a small triangle spot on upper left corner and the image is fine there. The case look ok too(lcd panel case). Only the image was broken.
I search and found different parts. And they are all very expansive. (unused same model notebook $750, lcd only $350) If you help me. It is a 14.1" wxga lcd tft.
 

Answer:what is the level of damage?(14.1" wxga lcd)

My guess is simply that the screen needs to be replaced. The backlight may be OK if they screen is still lit.

$350 sounds VERY expensive for a replacement though.

I ordered my new T400 in October, 2009, and recived almost three weeks later. Definitely, it took longer time than they promised me. Whatever, I got the laptop, finally.Now I have a question about the monitor. I used a software named EVEREST 5.30 (http://www.lavalys.com) to check the information of the hardware. Everything is okay except the monitor. It says the manufacture date is 45th week in 2006? Can you believe it, a monitor, potentially, made three years  ago for my new laptop??? I called lenovo, and they told me the LCD factory is probably using the same date for all monitors of this kind no matter when they're made. Can you believe it?They didn't have such complain before. If I can find different case for T400 with same kind monitor, they will accept my complain. Am I responsible to prove that or lenovo's? Anyway, we can do that, right? Hey, all T400 people, it's time to show our power! What's your manufacture date of the WXGA TFT LCD monitor? I will appreciated if you can post your LCD manufacture data as well as when you bought you laptop!  Many thanks to everyone.

Does anyone have any LCD Panel adjustment tips for a T500 with 1680x1050 screen and Intel 4500HD GPU?I am trying to make adjustments through the Intel Graphic Media Accelerator Driver Control Panel. I am running Vista Home Basic.  A number of different calibration programs such as Calibreze start by having you set the contrast to maximum. When I do this it washes out the screen so I back off on the contrast and try to proceed through the test but the result is that the color saturation is lacking. I am further frustrated by the video settings button on the same control panel. When I change the settings here it appears to have an effect only on the small test photos provided in the adjustment window. It has no effect on the display itself. I found a bunch of color management options in Vista but I have no clue as to where to begin with these. Lastly, I tried to find a user guide for but came up with nothing.Does anyone know where to find one? I am left wondering why I didn't just buy a machine with a dedicated graphics card.

Answer:T500 WXGA+ LCD Panel Adjustment Challenges

Hi Doublej, You don't say what is your purpose in adjusting your screen. If it is to have a truly calibrated monitor for the purpose of photo editing, then I recommend that you just give up on the laptop's screen anyway, and use an external monitor. The external monitor should be of type IPS or MVA or PVA (Wikipedia / Google these if you're not familiar with them) if a flat panel, or a (gasp!) CRT. All of those options are expensive, except the untrendy CRT. Just about every laptop screen these days and most external flat panels too use TN technology, which is great for gaming (fast response time) but utter garbage for viewing angles and color accuracy. Don't believe me? Load up a color photo on your laptop, then try looking at it from slightly above center, slightly below center, left of center, and right of center. See the color and brightness shifts? How can you possibly calibrate that? (You can't -- there's no way to always look at the screen from exactly the same angle, even if you could position your head perfectly, your eyes see different parts of the screen at different angles.) A good external monitor will also give you far better contrast ratio (brightest / darkest areas). After getting a decent monitor, it's still a good idea to calibrate it. (I've seen some monitors from Dell and Apple come pretty close without calibration, and others that were way out of calibration by default.) The X-Rite i1 Display 2 screen calibrator comes with easy-to-use calibratio... Read more

Answer:Custom building laptop... what wxga or wsxga?

I'm typing on a WXGA on 15.4" and I sort of wish I could get a tad bit more resolution out of this screen.

Of course, the downside (aside from size preferences) is that native resolution gaming will place a lot more demand on the video card. Shouldn't be that much of a problem with a 8600M GT, though.

The $80 seems reasonable to me- I would say it's worth it. But having an additional 3 week delay (especially for technology) is a bit of a negative. I'm not sure I would be willing to wait that long.

Hello guys! I was thinking of getting a x201 tablet pc. In most topics and reviews I found discussions Multitouch VS. Outdoor Superbright displays on x201t. It seems nobody is even thinking of getting a x201t with basic 200 nits display. So, my question would be - is the basic (cheapest) display that bad?? Does anyone have that one? What are the cons/pros? As being an architect, I was planning to use my new x201t for some design sketching indoor as well as outdoor. Since the Superbright outdoor model is no longer available at lenovo.com, should I wait for it or go for some of these currently available? If somebody owns a x201t with basic 200nits display I would appreciate to hear any comments... I wouldn't like to give extra $247 for a multitouch option (especially cause I don't need it) if the basic 200 nits screen bright enough. Thanks in advance!

But finally lenovo released the WXGA LED , which is great except for low resolution .  And for some reason t400 has the WXGA+ LED. I talked to lenovo reps on the phone, but nobody can give a definite answer on if WXGA+ coming to T500. So the question is:If I buy t500 with WXGA LED LCD, and then lenovo releases WXGA+ LED LCD, Will I be able to purchase the display panel it self, and then install it into my laptop myself, or will it require changing other hardware component as well???? Q2:Or should I Just go for WSXGA+(1680×1050) TFT, w/ CCFL Backlight??? Thanx.   

Answer:Is WXGA+(1440x900)LED LCD coming to T500, if so can I change panels later myself????

Welcome to the forum! While I can't answer your question on if and when WXGA+ LCDs are coming to T500 series, there are a couple of other things that I can tell you: a) By replacing the LCD by yourself you will void the warranty. b) The cost of WXGA+ LCD in addition to T500 without one is likely to cost you a lotmore than a factory-configured T500 with the LCD that you want. From my (not so modest) experience, most T models are always offered with more than one resolution, so I believe that you'll get to see WXGA+ on a T500... Hope this helps.

Hi There, I got a new T400 and I noticed that when I'm running unplugged (power source optimized power config) and LCD brightness drops to the lowest level. I can see what appears to be the LCD backlight flickering (or the refresh rate has gone down). Increasing the brightness by 1 level causes this to go away. It's as if the lowest brightness setting is not providing enough power to the LCD and/or backlight. I've got a WXGA+ TFT w/ LED BL with the intel built in graphics.

I am having trouble ordering the spec of notebook I require.  I have now managed to get through to the guys at Lenovo only to find that I cannot order the specification I require. It is a simple matter of requiring a T61 14.1" Widescreen notebook with the WXGA+ screen AND the webcam.  I can order a standard WXGA screen with said webcam but not the WXGA+ screen and the webcam. Having called I have been informed it is not an option and I cannot have it but having looked at the spares lists for the same notebook I can order the integrated screen/webcam/bluetooth cable for a WXGA+ screen.  Can anybody out there explain why you can buy spares for a specification of notebook Lenovo will not build? Also is there any reason the additional Ultrabay Battery is no longer an option on the second ordering page? Just doesn't make any sense at all to me, especially as Lenovo's competitors offer the above screen/camera package as standard. Baffling, anyone shed any light on the subject?

Lenovo laptops are all pre-built, so from a supply prespective it is easier to build laptops with similar specs.... ... so there is pretty much no possibility of individualisation of computer spec with Lenovo.... unlike Dell which allow you to build laptops to your desired spec, then your laptop are built to your exact order requirement.....

I've had my ThinkPad for about four months and have noticed a small patch on the LCD WXGA+ /w LED BL display that appears brighter than the rest of the display.  The problem is most noticeable on light backgrounds with the brightness turned up high. The patch is about the  size of a dime. I was wondering what the problem might be, whether it would be covered by warranty and how long it would take for this to be fixed via warranty? Thanks, for your help.

Answer:Light patch on ThinkPad T400 WXGA+ LED BL display

this light spot is due to a pressure spot, or there is a distortion in the LCD polarising film due to some heavy pressure. You would need to get the LCD changed, i think it is covered under warranty.

I have two T-61 14.1" Widescreens with NV-140-M GPUs.  Each have a Samsung WXGA+/WSXGA 1440x900 LCD screen and have developed a single pixel wide horizonatal white line about 3 cm from the bottom of the screen.  It is intermittent on each, almost always starting on boot, visible on the BIOS screen, continuing through the Windows stat-up screen and then into the usual Desktop.  Occasional by pressing on the screen, the line will disappear.  One now has either that line, or one 1/2 way up the screen.  Occasionally that line has a 3 cm segment that is blue, the rest white. Most often the lines disappear on their own.My guess is that both these screens are defective, but the fact that the 3 cm line looks like it is in the same place makes me slightly suspect the GPUs.  Both boards are the later 44C3933 version, so theoretically have the later GPUs that are not subject to the well-described early-run GPU problemsHas anyone else experienced this?  Maybe a bad "run" of LCDs?Fortunately I have several spare LCDs at a reasonable price, so this is not a catastrophe.Any thoughts are appreciated.

Hi, So after a few months of suffering the horrible graphics on my T-410 with integrated graphics and WXGA, in addition to other issues such as left palmrest squeaking, blue screens, USB ports not working after hibernation, etc, I would like to send in my laptop for a fix. What would it entail to switch it for discrete graphics and WXGA+ ? In other words, is replacing what I have for this new configuration doable? Thanks,O 

Answer:Replacing discrete for integrated and upgrading monitor's resolution to WXGA+

the depot can't upgrade the motherboard or LCD, you will have to purchase a new machine.

Hello everybody, I am trying to set up the bluetooth to work on Windows 8. Funnily enough everything went smooth with Ubuntu 14.04.So I am 100% sure this laptop has bluetooth hardware. Still, on the support website there is driver for bluetooth.It says it should be included in Windows 8 but I can't find it.Nor I can find the proper device in my control panel. Any hint? Thank you all.  

Answer:T410 2537 NQ6 bluetooth under Windows 8

Hello, Are you sure Windows 8 didn't install its native Bluetooth drivers? I've never had any problems with Bluetoothinstallation on any ThinkPads when either clean installing or upgrading to Windows 8. If you have the Thinkpad Hotkey Features Integration package installed, you can press FN+F5 to open upyour WiFi-Bluetooth window and enable the Bluetooth there. If not, the package is here: Hotkey Features Integration for Windows 8 See if this doesn't resolve the issue. Cheers.

I have a thinkpad T410 (2537-DN1) and my original power adapter is seeing some wear and tear that I have temporarily fixed with some electrical tape. My adapter is currently a 60W/20V model. What I am wondering is that I still have an adapter from my old T60. It's a 90W/20V model. Can I safely use it on my T410? My research has found both yes and no suggestions but nothing solid. Ergo, I thought I would ask. Thanks in advance, kate

Answer:wwan card in thinkpad t410 2537-BA2

Hi, tejas08881
 
From what I can see, the card is not in your system by default, so you would have to procure one. The card for your system is the Gobi 2000 for worldwide use, as shown here in this KnowledgeBase article. The correct part number for it is 60Y3183 and you should be able to give Lenovo India a call at 1-800-3000-9990 to order one if you'd like. Just make sure that the WWAN card is Lenovo-branded, as other cards will not be recognized in the BIOS.
 
Hope it helps,
Adam

Hello, I have issue with my Lenovo T410 Type 2537 keyboard: key "Q" is "hypersensitive" - I touch it just lightly and it will type. I do not fell no "click" or any resistance. I had take off the key-cap (very carefully) to clean innards of the key - but issue remains the same. All other keys work normally. Can you please help? Thank you, best regards!

Answer:Lenovo T410 Type 2537 keyboard: key is "hypersensitive"

Hi Jukras,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m really sorry to hear that ?Q? key in your Lenovo T410 is hypersensitive and responds to even a slight touch.
I would like to thank you for the efforts you have taken in cleaning the innards of the keypad.
 
Open Keyboard Properties by clicking the Start button, and then clicking Control Panel, then click Keyboard. Try adjusting the repeat delay and repeat rate in keyboard properties.
 
Also, could you please try uninstalling and reinstalling the keyboard drivers in device manager.
 
If the above attempts didn?t help to resolve the issue, I strongly suggest you to contact our technical support for assistance.

I got a T400  with switchabale graphics (something i dont understand). I want my 9 cells to  provide as long a run as feasiblewithout recharging. Which mode of graphics should i set it to and how do i do it?.My blackbox (a bit heavy for me for carrying ) is a t400 with 9 cells and a wxga+, 2gb,120GB.

Answer:How to enable only intel graphics/discrete graphics on T400(WxgA+), windows xp,

Edited: Sorry, missed the first time that you were on XP. The answer below is for Vista only. For XP because of op sys limitations you don't have true switchable graphics capability. You can switch between the two graphics cards during BIOS setup only. To switch, reboot turning power off, then power on and on initial screen hold F1 to enter BIOS setup. Choose config and then display, and toggle graphics between integer (energy saving) and discrete (high performance). First time you switch you may have to reboot an extra time to allow the drivers to install. _____________________________________________________ If you have the latest release of the power manager (2.42) right click on it (the battery icon) and choose switchable graphics. If you are still on 2.37 or earlier release of the power manager left click instead. Once you have found the switchable graphics option switch between the two graphics cards by choosing energy saving and high performance GRAPHICS. (NOT similar options in the normal part of the power manager.) Here is the Lenovo switchable graphics FAQ Message Edited by zilla on 01-25-2009 01:06 PM

Hi, Before Xmas I bought a tablet X201T ( i7 2.13 GHz, 4Gb ram, Win 7 pro) with the following display: 12.1" WXGA LED Panel with wide viewing angle This display was the only option since the ultrabright outdoor display seems to not be anymore available in the website and I don't care to have a touchscreen in a tablet. My tablet has the following problems when in PORTRAIT MODE: 1) In Windows Journal: if I select the highlighter or I decide to open another application, like adobe reader, and then I return to my windows journal page, near to the dot cursor it appears another icon that bugs a lot especially if you are trying to write. Basically I see the dot and next to it, on the upper right side another symbol. For example if I select a thick highlighter and then I select the pen, I visualize the dot of the pen and on the right side next to the dot a colored semitransparent bar belonging to the previously selected highlighter.  This happens only when the tablet is in portrait mode! 2) In Windows Journal or in other drawing applications ( I have autodesk sketch book pro) in portrait mode: if you draw close to the border on the camera side of the tablet or if you cross the black border in the display on that side of the tablet, drawed lines appear that go from that side to the other side of the page...like if you draw a straight line from that side to the other ...

Question: Backlight?

Hey i was wondering if any company still makes laptops without back-lights. reason being is because i had a client that asked me which Mini netbooks came with back-light's and which didnt. i thought all modern LCD displays have back-lights now? am i wrong?

Answer:Backlight?

If it is LCD is has to have a backlight or you wouldnt see anything on screen.

Liquid crystal display - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

From what i gather there is no LCD without back lighting. Even clocks, calculators and other devices that use LCD's have back lights. Do they mean on the monitor or on the keyboard?

Question: Backlight help

I replaced a backlight and it worked good. 3 days later  it went out again. So I'm trying to fix it again.  The solder joints still looked good. I re-soldered each and it still won't come on. It appears the bulb has burned out again. Could something be causing it to burn out?This backlight went out about 4 years ago and it was replaced under warranty. I'm thinking it might be the inverter. Could that be burning out the bulb?  Can I check the voltage of the inverter with a multimeter? Is there any way to find out if this is the problem?I know I'm going to have to replace the backlight again, but should I also replace the inverter?  I don't want to burn out another one.This is a Sony Vaio PCG-GRT170

Question: LED backlight

Hello, I recently purchased a ASUS K42 Series K42JY-A1 Notebook and I had been working fin until now. I had used it already several times today, but tonight, when I went to turn it on from sleep mode, it did not respond, at least not that I could tell. After turning it off and on several times with no success, I noticed that at certain angles I could see features of the screen. As it turns out, there is no working light for my screen anymore, though it still operates fine otherwise (at least as far as I can tell with my impaired vision). I also used the brightness buttons on the keyboard to adjust the brightness in case it had somehow gotten turned down, however it was at the brightest possible setting. I also tried plugging the charger in to see if that gave me any different results, but to no avail. Have my backlights been turned off somehow? and if so, how can I turn them back on? or are my backlights somehow broken and should I contact ASUS for support?

Thank you.
 

Answer:LED backlight

As you suspect this looks like the backlight has failed. Being able to see a faint image on-screen means the rest of the laptop is still working.

I doubt there is any way to turn the backlight off deliberately.

As it's still under warranty I would contact Asus.
