L450 FHD LCD screen & Backlit keyboard upgrade

[ Edited ]

Hi everyone,

I have a ThinkPad L450 notebook. MTM#: 20DT001DUS.

I have two questions regarding hardware upgrades.

 

1. It currently has a WXGA (1366x768) LCD screen.

I would like to upgrade it to a FHD (1920x1080) one.

 

2. I would also like to upgrade the keyboard to a backlit one.

 

Is this possible?

Will there be any compatibility issues such as connectors, light not working etc...

 

Thanks in advance for the replies.

 

Best regards.

Re: L450 FHD LCD screen & Backlit keyboard upgrade

Hi there, part number for the FHD display is 04X4807. Here's a L450 FHD LCD Panel I found on eBay: https://www.ebay.com/i/282492656965?chn=ps&dispItem=1

 

In addition, here's the service training videos for the L450 that you might find useful: http://download.lenovo.com/lts/RTPW1350/CourseFiles/player.html

 

And 04Y0862 is the part number for the backlit keyboard. Again refer to the service training videos for reference on how to replace these components, and here's one I found on NewEgg: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIADG45VB1156&ignorebbr=1&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleMKP-PC&c...

 

Hope that helps, and of course feel free to reply with any further questions Smiley Happy

LCD cable should be replaced either, there are 2 p/ns depending on installed one.

Thanks everyone for your answers. Are all the Displays and Keyboards with the same connector? Will the backlight work of the keyboard?

The keyboard on the image on Newegg store above isn't FRU 04Y0862.

The keyboard FRU 04Y0862 doesn't have backlight feature. Its image is below, spacebar misses a flash icon, keyboard small description misses BL option either (FRU CS13T-KBD US English Liteon)

Moreover, L450 doesn't support keyboard backlight feature at all.

It should as the LCD 04X4807 is in the L450' parts ist. As I noted above, the LCD cable should be replaiced either, FRU 00HT981 instead of presently installed 00HT816.
