Thinkpad T480 replace non-backlit for backlit keyboard

2018-10-12, 13:10 PM

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.

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.
