Does replacing LCD void warranty?

2015-12-27, 19:06 PM

I am aware that an LCD is not a CRU part, however I am not only confident with replacing laptop displays but also know of a repair shop which is willing to do so. My question is, does replacing a laptop display completely void warrantly of the entire laptop?


The screen on my X250 is not broken, however I am looking into upgrading to an IPS panel. I understand that the new monitor would not be covered by tha laptop's warranty but would other parts, I'm talking mainly about the mtherboard, be covered?


Thanks in advance for the help.

There is an issue with replacing panels on "50" (t450. x450, etc.) with panels that did not come directly from Lenovo.  I have seen several reports that the eeid (little chip on the panel itself that holds panel-specific info, light brightness sellings and color correction stuff) is non-standard.  My understanding is that the brightness controls and other functions just don't work if you replace the panel with one that didn't come from Lenovo.


Also, the fuses are EXTREMELY quick to burn, so wear a grounding wrist strap and drain all the capacitors before disconnecting the panel

If a response answers your question, please mark it as the accepted solution.

I am not an employee or agent of Lenovo.

Answer is yes repairing the laptop yourself voids the warranty due to you did repair out authorized Lenovo technician can repair it without voiding the warranty.
