Palmrest cover ThinkPad X240

2017-03-31, 10:01 AM

Hello,

 

I would like to purchase a new palmrest keyboard cover for my Lenovo x240 and replace it with my current.

My specific laptop do not have visible (physical) fingerprint sensor.

 

My question is If I will purchase the 00HT390 part

(palmrest keyboard cover including the fingerprint sensor) there is some option

on the motherboard to connect it there in order to make it works? this option exist?

or it's just in a specific x240 models ?

 

Another question.. the 00HT391 part (the one without the fingerprint ) will also fit for me without an issue? 

the reason I want to replace it .. it because I want have a palmrest like in the x250 model.

but I think if anyway i will replace the keyboard bezel i prefer in addition to add it with the fingerprint sensor as well

 

My model details: 

20AMS0SA05
Serial: xxxxxxxx
BIOS: GIET85WW (2.35 )

Welcome to the forum!

 

Both palmrests should work, normally the connector is always built on the motherboard.

 

I'm just curious about the FRU# you posted. I see different ones in the X240 FRU list, namely 04X5180 with FP and 04X5181 without FP.  Source: click me!

Partslookup service lists both x240 and x250 models as applicable ones for FRU 00HT390.

Thanks,

I found it over the internet - google search, I think maybe I mixed up some part numbers I found.

thanks for the link.

There is some good tutorial that you recommend to use for replacing the keyboard bezel with a new one that including build-in touchpad and fingerprint  ? I'm not planning to change the keyboard with new just move it to the new bezel.

I saw some videos on youtube and I see the complexity of disassembly the laptop.. It same steps as changing the keyboard but with more extra steps?

The most details tutorial I found:

http://diy.mironto.sk/thinkpad-x240-replacing-touchpad-and-keyboard/

what is your suggestion ? do you have some tips to do it right ?
