Thinkpad Yoga 460 glass cracked

2018-05-11, 22:41 PM
Hello everyone, my Thinkpad Yoga 460 (P/N 20EM000VGE) got dropped and the biggest damage is the cracked screen. Everything else and especially the lcd is still fully functioning, only the touchscreen is not working (neither pen, nor finger). Moments after the drop, the touchscreen was registering "phantom touches" of the windows logo, which is just a few centimeters away from the point of impact. But that also has not happened again in the last few days. My question is, is there a replacement glass by Lenovo or can i use a replacement glass including digitizer from ebay (I can provide a link if needed and i'm allowed to post it)? I think it should be possible to heat the glass with a hair dryer to soften the glue and remove the glass from the lcd and replace it. Is that correct or am i missing something? I would rather not want to buy the whole display unit even though it would be easier to swap. If you need any further info just ask. Any help is appreciated. Best regards mrks

Without a clean room and some very sophisticated equipment, it is impossible to replace the digitizer by itself.  You probably need a whole assembly.

Thank you for your answer. Saved time and money. Is there an official parts store by lenovo were i can get the whole assembly (if it is important, my Laptop has just entered extended 3 year warrenty)? Otherwise i would order this part of amazon. (https://www.amazon.de/LCDOLED-Digitizer-Display-kompletteinheit-Thinkpad/dp/B01MXEQF3L/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1526160177&sr=8-1&keywords=lcdoled+14+460+20em). From what i have seen, the connectors on my broken display model look the same as the ones on this replacement part.

That picture looks like a a screen assembly.  That looks like the "sandwich" with the LCD panel AND the digitizer

Yes it is the whole assembly. I'm sorry I forgot that the title of the product was written in german, my bad. 'kompletteinheit' is a rough translation for 'assembly'. Is it sufficient to match only the first part of the product number (20EM)? As far as my understanding goes, there are different suffixes like 20EM-000VGE (what my p/n reads) or 20EM-000VAD, etc. Or are those just country codes (e.g. GE - Germany - german keyboard layout)? Thank you for your answer!

The last 2 letters are country code.  There are different memory, SSD, GPU, etc configurations.  Do a google search for 20EM psref.
