Thinkpad T480 replace non-backlit for backlit keyboard

Hi,

 

I just purchased a new T480 Thinkpad for work, which is a great computer. Unfortunatly the model I have does not have the backlit keyboard. The specific model I have is a 20L5000WUS. On the Lenovo support I do not see any option in the replacement parts for a backlit keayboard. If I purchase a backlit keyboard for a different T480 sub-model, will it work?

 

Thanks,

Nic

Welcome to the Community

New BL keyboard will work.
Since there isn't a file with T480' spare parts published, its BL KB with US layout with p/n (FRU) are below:
DFN BL-KB USE - FRU 01HX528
LTN BL-KB USE - 01HX488
CHY BL-KB USE - 01HX448
DFN BL-KB US - 01HX499
LTN BL-KB US - 01HX459
CHY BL-KB US - 01HX419

They differ by Euro symbol presence (USE) and manufacturer.

Those keyboards by the link above are applicable to T470 and A475. I can't confirm they are compatible with T480.

From where can I order a backlit replacement keyboard for T480? Any approved Lenovo vendor/contact info?

Thanks

Hi kpsam2000,

 

Glad to have you here.

 

Currently, your option is to purchase from any third party vendors like Amazon, eBay, etc.

 

Hope this helps.
