Replace Lenovo IdeaPad Z400 Touch LCD screen without replacing the outer glass/touchscreen?

Hello guys,

So I have a Lenovo IdeaPad Z400 touch that recently fell from a table and the laptop itself looks physically OK and has no dents or cracks at all, even the glass touchscreen is ok but the top part of the LCD inside appears to be cracked as there are lines and black cracks on my screen. I recently took the laptop to a Lenovo service center and they told me that they had to change both the LCD and the touch screen module (or digitizer as i have heard) as they come in a package, this costs around $300 and is not worth it since my laptop would cost around the same if sold secondhand.


My question is whether there is a way to change just the LCD without changing the touch screen module as it works perfectly fine. After taking my laptop to a technician outside of Lenovo, he claims that seperating the touchscreen module from the LCD would almost always result in the touch screen cracking so it would be unusable, is this true or is it possible to keep the old touch screen module and change just the LCD?


Thanks in advance20180507_165715.jpg

Hi RichWill88,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


Replacement of the LCD panel without the glass is not offered in the hardware manual as well as any OEM part number sold separately. Challenge is with glue it have but it is still possible and best done by lcd specialty service centers. Miscalibration and damage on the panel are usual so refurbished panel from third party sellers can also be an option to check.
