Maintenance Manual
Read This First
Before you go to the check procedures, be sure to read
this section.
Important Notes
Ÿ
Only certified trained personnel should service the
computer.
Ÿ
Read the FRU service procedures before replacing
any FRUs.
Ÿ
Be extremely careful during write operations such as
copying, saving, or formatting. Drives in the computer
that you are servicing might have been rearranged or
the drive startup sequence might have been altered. If
you select an incorrect drive, data or programs could
be overwritten.
Ÿ
Ensure that you replace FRUs with the appropriate
model. When you replace the FRU, make sure that
the model of the machine and FRU part number are
correct by referring to the part list.
Ÿ
FRUs should not be replaced because of a single,
unreproducible failure. Single failure can occur for a
variety of reasons that have nothing to do with a
hardware defect, such as: cosmic radiation,
electrostatic discharge, or software error. FRU
replacement should be considered only when a recurring problem exists. In this case, clear the error log
and run the test again. Do not replace FRUs if log
errors do not reappear.
Be careful not to replace a non-defective FRU.
How to Use Error Messages
Use the error codes displayed on the screen to diagnose
failures. If more than one error code is displayed, begin the
diagnosis with the first error code. The cause of the first
error code can result in the other false error codes being
displayed.
How to Diagnose Multiple FRUs
If the adapter or device has more than one FRU, the error
code could be caused by either FRU. Before replacing
multiple FRUs, try removing or exchanging each FRU one
by one in the designated sequence, to see if the symptoms
change.
ThinkPad i Series 1400
1
What to Do First
The servicer must include the following in the parts
exchange form or parts return form that is attached to the
returned FRU:
1. Name and phone number of servicer.
2. Date of service.
3. Date when part failed.
4. Date of purchase.
5. Failure symptoms, error codes appearing on display,
and beep symptoms.
6. Procedure index and page number in which failing
FRU was detected.
7. Failing FRU name and part number.
8. Machine type, model number and serial number.
9. Customer's name and address.
Before checking problems with the computer, determine
whether or not the damage applies to the warranty by
referring to the following:
Note for Warranty: During the warranty period, the customer may be responsible for repair costs if the computer
damage was caused by misuse, accident, modification,
unsuitable physical or operating environment, or improper
maintenance by the customer. The following list provides
some common items that are not covered under warranty
and some symptoms that may indicate the system was
subjected to stresses beyond normal use:
The following is not covered under warranty:
Ÿ
LCD panel cracked by applying excessive force or by
being dropped.
Ÿ
Scratched (cosmetic) parts.
Ÿ
Cracked or broken plastic parts, broken latches,
broken pins, or broken connectors caused by excessive force.
Ÿ

If the following symptoms are present, they may indicate
damage caused by non-warranted activity:
Ÿ
Missing parts may be a symptom of unauthorized
service or modification.
Ÿ
HDD spindles can become noisy if subjected to
excessive force or by being dropped.
Screw Notices
The computer uses special nylon-coated screws with the
following characteristics:
Ÿ
They maintain tight connections.
Ÿ
They do not easily come loose, even with shock or
vibration.
Ÿ
They need additional force to tighten.
Ÿ
They should be used only once.
Do the following when you service the machine:
Ÿ
Keep the screw kit (P/N 05K4841) in your tool bag.
Ÿ
Always use new screws if you are instructed.
Ÿ
Use a torque screwdriver if you have one.
Loose screws can cause a reliability problem. The IBM
ThinkPad computer addresses this problem with nyloncoated screws. Tighten screws as follows:
Ÿ
Plastic to plastic
Turn an additional 90 degrees after the screw head
touches the surface of the plastic part.
Ÿ
Logic card to plastic
Turn an additional 180 degrees after the screw head
touches the surface of the logic card.
Ÿ
Torque driver
If you have a torque driver, refer to the "Torque"
column with each step.
Make sure you use the correct screw, and tighten all
screws firmly to the torque shown in the table if you have a

Intermittent Problems
Intermittent system hang problems can be caused by a
variety of reasons that have nothing to do with a hardware
defect, such as cosmic radiation, electronic discharge, or
software errors. FRU replacement should only be considered when a recurring problem exists.
When analyzing the intermittent problem, do the following:
1. Run the diagnostic test for the planar board at least
10 times.
2. If no error is detected, do not replace any FRUs.
3. If any error is detected, replace the FRU. Rerun the
test to verify that there are no more errors.
Undetermined Problems
The diagnostic tests did not identify which adapter or
device failed, which installed devices are incorrect, whether
a short circuit is suspected, or whether the system is inoperative. Follow the procedures below to isolate the failing
FRU.
Verify that the power supply being used at the time of the
failure is operating correctly.
1. Power off the computer.
2. Check the cables, wires, and connectors for short circuits and open circuits. Visually check them for
damage. If any problems are found, replace the FRU.
3. Remove or disconnect all of the following devices:
Ÿ
Non-IBM devices
Ÿ
Printer, external mouse & keyboard, and other
external devices
Ÿ
Battery pack
Ÿ
Hard disk drive
Ÿ
Diskette drive/CD-ROM/DVD-ROM drive
Ÿ
PC Card (PCMCIA)
4. Power on the computer.
5. Determine if the problem has changed.
6. If the problem does not occur again, reconnect the
removed devices one at a time until you find the
failing FRU.

code, make sure you write the correct ID code or
try reconnecting the LCD FPC cable connectors.
Setting the Thermal Sensor:
The system is
equipped with sensors to protect against system overheating. By setting the system and processor thermal
thresholds, the system can turn on the cooling Fan ASM or
shut down automatically when the temperature reaches the
defined threshold parameters.
System experiencing frequent auto sensor shutdown may
need to reset the thermal sensor threshold.
Follow the steps below to set the thermal threshold:
1. Boot from the Maintenance Program Diskette.
2. Select Thermal Sensor Utility from PC DOS 7.0
Startup menu.
3. Follow the instructions on the screen to set the
thresholds.
Writing the VPD Data: The EEPROM on the
planar board contains the vital product data (VPD) — that
is, a system unit serial number and a planar board serial
number. When you replace the planar board, restore the
system unit serial number using the VPD Data Utility. The
serial number label is attached to the computer.
