Does changing your keyboard void the warranty

The keyboard on a T420 can easily be removed by removing 2 screws under the laptop: one to open the memory/PCIe compartment, another to remove the keyboard itself.


Question is: Will changing the keyboard yourself void the warranty on the whole laptop?

Re: Does changing your keyboard void the warranty

No, definitely not unless you do something really wrong and damage something whilst doing so in which case you will void the warranty on what you have damaged.


The keyboard on a T420 is classified as an CRU, Customer Replaceable Unit. In a warranty situation Lenovo would just express you a replacement expecting you to replace it yourself even if you have an on-site warranty.
