Hello friends,
I am having IBM ThinkPad R51, around 4 years old. The system is working fine. Recently it started showing single thin line. After some days another line start appearing.
I shown the system to laptop engineer. He suggested me to replace entire screen.

Is this really the problem of LCD screen or some other problem? Any suggestion is highly appreciated.

I had a problem on a T series where the internal video cable (ribbon type) broke down due to heat and caused artifcats on the screen. Maybe a similar issue?

I would agree with the engineer though, new screen is probably the wy to go.

When I changed the LCD panel itself, I found that the source of the problem is the panel, not the video card, not the wireing... You only need to drop out the old LCD panel and get a new one. You cannot repair the wrong panel.
