I have an X201-3249CTO. I've been happy with it but tonight I encountered my first hardware problem.
When I open the screen/lid the display shuts off. When I close it or more precisely, close the lid such that it is 30o open the LCD panel lights up again or works. The computer works perfectly otherwise.
When I disassemble the laptop I've found that the LCD panel will light up only if I manually stretch the LCD ribbon.
Question: What is the problem? LCD panel? Cable ribbon? Has anyone encountered this problem?
Thanks for your help
The ribbon is shown. When pulled down or taught (toward bottom of image) the display lights up.
This is the general area of the ribbon cable
