Touchpad coating worn off

I have been using my T560 for more than a year now with no major issues until now. Since I dont have a mouse, my only input option was to use the touchpad combined with the trackpad buttons. I have noticed that the coating of the touchpad have displayed slight wear looking in one area more 'oily' than the other, which i could understand. But now, I cannot explain how it happened that during a normal use the coating cracked under my nail, initially leaving uncomfortable scratch; then after few more rubs pretty big pieces started to chip off. The touchpad in the affected are still works fine but the terrible experience of smdging across it forced me to use mouse from now.


Isnt there a way to remove the old coating and put the new layer to the touchpad? Or I have to replace the entire pad? Shouldnt it be covered by my warranty since I have 1.5 years left?

Re: Touchpad coating worn off

I'd try calling warranty and seeing what they can do.

Failing that, there's always third party touchpad stickers you can probably slap on.
