Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad 600X Notebook ?

The panel on my 600x works for a few minutes then turns off.

\015 When it it goes out I press Fn-F7 a few times and it comes back on. Not very computer savvy, but is there anything I can do to fix?\015

Answers :

Your problem definitely sounds like the inverter - when you press FN-F7 you're restarting it and giving it a mild jolt. Luckily, it is a breeze to replace - undo two screws and pop off the screen bezel and it's just behind the contrast control. Get the service manual for the 600X from Lenovo's website which gives full stripdown details.
There is an external video connector on the back edge of your laptop. When you connect an external monitor or a data projector to this video connector, you can switch the video information between the laptop's LCD screen and the external display on the external monitor or data projector using the Fn-F7 keys.
\015\012By pressing it several times you cycle it with various options, these are :-
\015\012LCD only
\015\012External video only
\015\012LCD and external video
