y50-70 keyboard key fell out, need fix

2016-09-02, 20:57 PM

Hello,

 

I have lenovo y50-70 model (20378) and my left 'Ctrl' button has fallen off and I am looking to fix the situation. I have found a replacement part at http://www.replacementlaptopkeys.com/lenovo-y50-70-laptop-keyboard-keys-replacement/ and I am wondering if this is the correct part to fix the problem and which type of keyboard I have. Keyboard type is either 'IC51' or 'IC06' and I am not completely sure which part to get. Am I approaching the solution correctly? PIC of affected area included.

 

Thank you.

In addition, these laptop key replacement sites usually will sell you the complete kit.  In other words,  a new key cap, the plastic hinge and the rubber cup.  I usually skip installing the new rubber cup unless the one on the keyboard is damaged or worn.

From comparing your picture and the picture on the website, I'd go with the IC51 if it were my purchase.

Hi there, could you please let me know how did you solve your broken key issue ? I have purchased my Y70 gaming laptop just a bit over a year ago, and the sad thing is that my "W" key is totally broken, Im very disappointed with the quality of the keyboard, especially considering that this is a gaming laptop ! If theres anybody can share an info how to get a new key for my keyboard I would greatly appreciate any help. Thanks guys!

Thank you !

http://www.replacementlaptopkeys.com/ ?

Yes, I did check the website, I also noticed a huge amount of negative reviews from people who ordered through them. I been wondering if Lenovo deals with this kinda things, wonder if they would be willing to help to resolve this issue by sending me a new "W" key. Thanks again for your reply.

It worked, but comes loose on occasion and needs to be reapplied, i'd get two replacements just in case. it not easy to put the key on btw.

I've read lots of negative reviews about that website, have you tried to contact Lenovo for the key replacement by any chance ? Wondering if they are willing to do anything about it. Thanks.

I only contacted Lenovo using the forum, in this thread. Because this was only one key I decided against making a warranty claim. The site delivered the key, I do not think it is an OEM part, it did work, but still has issues. I would try to buy a replacement key before making a warranty claim to see if you can fix it yourself to avoid having time without the computer.

Is there a way to order the key through Lenovo instead of getting non-OEM part from the other guys ? If so, how do I contact Lenovo to place an order for that "W" key? Thank you.
