Need replacement keyboard for Lenovo P53s Type 20N6

2021-07-02, 18:48 PM



I have a broken keyboard that needs fixing. None of my local computer repair people have a good grasp on which keyboard is compatible with my laptop as some have quoted the keyboard will cost $50 while others say $185. It is a Lenovo P53s Type 20N6 from 2019. 


I am thinking of purchasing the keyboard myself and paying someone to install it as I have the time to properly find a compatible replacement keyboard. Does any keyboard with P53s 20N6 work?


I found one on Amazon but it says "20QS P53s 20N6" so I am not sure if it works for mine. It looks the exact same so I hope it works. Is anyone able to help me with this?

Any guidance or help is appreciated.

Good day.


Please visit the P53s / 20N6 support page: https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-p-series-laptops/thinkpad-p53s-type-20n6-20n7/20n6 and enter your serial number in the box on the left. When the page refreshes, Click the Parts link on the left sidebar, and then the As-built link along the top. If you filter the resulting list on Keyboards, you should be able to see the actual part number.


Once you have the part number, it may help your search, and normally I would suggest Encompass: https://lenovo.encompass.com/, but I do not know if they ship outside of the US.


Something else to take into consideration is that the P53s requires a special tool (01LX856) to facilitate keyboard removal, (see pgs 66-68 of your hardware manual: https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/tp_t590_p53s_hmm_en.pdf) which is available from Encompass: https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/tp_t590_p53s_hmm_en.pdf.


HTH a bit.
