Has anyone successfully installed the P51 4K LCD (AUO B156ZAN02.1) into a 4K P50? The P50 4K LCD is really terrible, dim, and has a strange sheen when viewed off-angle.

i just tried installing the exact same panel, and it works perfectly! including brightness control.
mines upgrade from stock FHD. I have replaced the hinge and the eDP cable as well.

Excellent. Where did you purchase your panel, and why does the hinge need to be replaced? I can probably use the same eDP cable (since I'll be upgrading from the old 4K panel).

ok, i haven't logged on to the forum until today, so here is my story.
I purchased the hinge and eDP cable from TaoBao and i had a forwarding company to then send them from CHN to US. Then i purchased a LCD panel from eBay, but the package was lost on its way to the US. Later on, i went on a travel to CHN, so I purchased the panel from TaoBao and installed it when i was in CHN.
also a little sidenote, the panel i got does NOT have lenovo FRU, and its brightness control works out-of-box.
If your model was 4k before, i don't think you'll need to change either the cable or the hinge. I changed my hinge becuase the 4k panel is mounted slightly differently. See the attached photos; notice how the bottom screws are at different locations.
