Does opening up an IdeaPad Y500 void the warranty?

2015-03-08, 19:27 PM

Hello,

 

Would opening up my IdeaPad Y500 void the warranty?

 

Say, for example, if I wanted to remove a speaker. That would mean dismantling almost everything from the system board. This wouldn't void the warranty, would it?

 

The only documents I can find online don't mention anything about taking apart the system. Here they are:

 

http://support.lenovo.com/ca/en/docs/UM015162

https://shop.lenovo.com/ISS_Static/WW/emea/merchandising/pdf/Lenovo%20Limited%20Warranty.pdf

 

Otherwise, the product page for the Y500 just says "For a copy of applicable warranties, write to: Lenovo Warranty Information, 1009 Think Place, Morrisville, NC, 27560."

 

This is a little ridiculous.

 

I understand that there are "customer replaceable units". This implies that the unit can be taken apart by the customer; is this correct?

Good day.

 

For reference, you may wish to have a look at your hardware manual:

http://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/lenovo_y400_y500_hmm.pdf

Starting on manual page 76, you'll see the parts listing and the CRU designation of each. Those items marked with one or two asterisks are considered CRU.

 

Hope this helps.

Regards.
