Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook ?

Thinkpad screen goes fuzzy

\015 My IBM Thinkpad T30 screen goes randomly fuzzy, sometimes to an extent that the screen is unreadable. Putting pressure on the laptop base or tapping the laptop makes it go away for a while. This leads me to believe there is a loose connection in the laptop causing the screen interference. I can open it up myself, but I am looking for some direction on where I should start to look, and if there is anything specific I should check out. Thanks\015

Answers :

I have exactly the same problem and in MHO this solution is off the mark. I have replaced the LCD and in addition the problem can be made to go away by warping the main case of the computer rather than the display. I would also like to know which connections to check and how to get to them. I have replugged the display connection to the mother board.

When I open my laptop the screen becomes green and fuzzy. This is until I move the screen slowly backwards and eventually I hit a spot where it comes back to normal but if I move the screen forward or backwards it goes green and fuzzy again. Seems like the longer this problem persists, the further back the screen has to be in order to correct itself. Any help appreciated :)
