Ideapad Z500 Screen Replacement

Hi, my sons Z500 screen has cracked and I am after a replacement screen. This is the non touch sensitive screen and has a gloss finish. Could anyone tell me if Lenovo used just one screen for this laptop or if they used a couple of different types of screens during manufacture, like some other companies. I know I can remove the old screen to have a look at the specs, but my son is still using the laptop with an external monitor and would prefer me not to take his precious computer apart until I have the new screen. Any help will be very appreciated.

many thanks

Re: Ideapad Z500 Screen Replacement

Hi gizmo001i , 


Welcome to the Community Forums.


Indeed there would be labels physically on the back sticker of the LCD but alternatively you can visit parts look up page and using your Serial Number / Machine number to get the  FRU/ part number for your LCD . 


You may compare parts recommended from the FRU list of the hardware manual (page72). 


Can you give the machine number ?

You may check on the machine number from the sticker or check it from here ,just keep your serial number confidential , to verify . 


Update us how it goes.
