T470 Keyboard Upgrade?

2017-09-30, 11:17 AM

Hi,

I just bought a T470 and had it delivered today, but it turnes out that I forgot to choose the backlit keyboard, which is pretty sad because I really need it. Is there a possibility to do a single purchase of the keyboard, or is there any other way to upgrade it to backlit.

 

Solved! See the solution

Good day and welcome to the community.

Have a look at the FRU BOM for the T470 at: https://download.lenovo.com/parts/ThinkPad/t470_frubom_20170426.pdf where the backlit keyboard (BL) parts numbers are listed on pages 11-14. CHY, DFN and LTN denote different suppliers for functionally equivlent hardware. US is for the United States layout, USI is US international.

 

You can use the 7-character part number at the retail parts site: https://www-store.shop.ibm.com/shop/en-US/partsusretail to check availability and price.

 

Then, the HMM at: https://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/t470_hmm_en.pdf will show you how to install on pages 79-81.

 

Hope this helps.
Regards.
