TRICKY QUESTION S510 Touch Camera Type??? Hinge Issue/Back Cover Replacement

2018-10-30, 22:07 PM

Hey all, I'm dealing with the dreaded hinge issue and found myself needing to replace the back cover. I have a Lenovo Ideapad S510p Touch, model number 20299, but the two parts that are compatible according to the hardware maintenance manual, are either

LS51P LCD Cover With 0.3M Camera TS   Part #90203869
LS51P LCD Cover With 1M Camera TS       Part #90203884

I can't for the life of me tell whether I have a .3M camera or a 1M camera. 

Has anyone had any luck finding a specific Lenovo part with a number, where did you order? 

I'm also wondering whether I can just take off the camera on my current case and use it on a replacement cover as the camera itself isn't damaged, just the plastic backing where the right hinge's screws are supposed to be. 

Has anyone had any luck ordering a cheap non-touch cover for their touch? I don't use touch anyway so if fits without the added touch functionality, I will be happy.

I also want to add how the problem came about. It's not under warranty anymore, but the right hinge suddenly got very stiff, the hinged somehow tightened itself. Trying to close the top normally is what caused the hinge screws to separate from the plastic backing on the case.
