G505s Cracked Case

2015-03-06, 20:24 PM

Hi,

 

I got my G505s about a year and a half ago and since then the bottom case has cracked around the air vent. I tried to do a hot fix with some super glue as I didn;t have the time to try and get it fixed. I kinda know my way around a computer and I am happy to try and fix it myself if I could get hold of the component or should I try and get it into a repair shop to see what they can do?

 

Thanks

RWR2288

Sound like you are on the right track. Google the part and you should see some options. If under warranty with full coverage it may be worth sending in, otherwise take pictures of screw locations as it can be the saving grace so to speak.

Good luck.

Hi RWR2288,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community!

 

As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with your system cracked.

 

If the seal is broken then the warranty will be void hence, I would suggest you to send the system to nearest authorized service center for the genuine parts and service.

 

Click here to open a link where you can select the country and get the exact contact support number. I’m sure

they will be a great help.

 

As you have also mentioned that you will be able to replace the bottom case. You can also refer to the manual for replacement.

 

Click here for the manual.

 

Hope this helps. Do post back if issue persists!

 

Best regards,

Hi, thanks for the help, I phoned the helpline and found that my unit was out of warranty so I will have to pay for the repair.

Thanks

full case replacement is only answer, the part cost about $40 on ebay only get new.  Takes about an hour.  Order top and bottom of lower case.  New plastics improved.  See my post about it.
