need help finding keyboard replacement for L540

2018-11-19, 1:49 AM
so I accidentally broke my L540 keyboard by accidentally spraying a mist of water onto it.... i thought it would put up just like my T410/T420, but alas, i need to fork out
some money for a new keyboard...

so onto the question, my keyboard FRU is 04Y2348, i searched it on my local online shopping website but there is no parts for the aforementioned FRU.
The only keyboards available here is for the E540 : 04Y2689 whereas for the T540p/T540/W540 : 04Y2348 and 04Y2387.

is the keyboards interchangeable between models? it looks like it has the same connectors

There were two FRU's for the Keyboard on that model depending on the manufacturer, FRU 04Y2348 (Chicony) and FRU 04Y2426 (LITEON) and while both fit, the Lite-on version may have a slightly different feel when typing.    Lenovo does not have either in stock, but I do see a few FRU 04Y2426 versions online, such as this one from AliExpress (ships from China) or this one from Ebay (Ships from US).


Best of luck,
