T420s replacement screen

Hi all,

I'm looking at replacing the screen in a T420s, and wondered if anyone here has had any experience with replacing with a non standard panel. Most laptop parts dealers have a glossy option to fit, which I quite fancy trying, but I've no idea about quality. Would it be madness to try one out?

Re: T420s replacement screen

Hey nisupsi,


Here I can link HMM on how you would do it and would say its up to what you think you can handle. Some find LCD replacement easy and some find it just to much work so I would leave it up to you to decide base on what the amount of work would be. Also if you are still under warranty it will void it if you decide to replace it yourself.


Here is the HMM that walks you through the steps:   


If you have anymore questions please post back we help anyway we can.


Best Regards,
