X230t LCD Bezel /w Fingerprint Reader FRU number

2013-04-17, 4:11 AM

Hi all!

 

I need to replace LCD plastic bezel with fingerprint reader sensor in x230t (3434 CTO).

As I see in http://download.lenovo.com/parts/ThinkPad/x230t_fru_bom_20121010.pdf doc

it's FRU number is

04W6941 -- LCD ButtonBzlASM wFP CM2

 

I don't know what CM2 or Comet-2 acronyms means.

Could somebody confirm this FRU number?

The most confusing things are:

 

04W6941 -- LCD ButtonBzlASM wFP CM2 -  35$

04W1666 -- LCD ButtonBzl ASM w/o FP - 45$  - (why no CM2 acronym?)

 

Why bezel with fingerprint reader is cheaper than without it?

Comet is the company that manufactures the fingerprint reader.

Most of the LCD bezel comes with fingerprint reader, so there are more of them in stock as compared to the one without fingerprint reader. The price of the parts depend also factor in inventory cost, and the lack of supply.

Was anybody able to do this?

Where did you find the bezel and the fingerprint reader module?

Hi Ron.

 

I bought this:

  LCD Button Bezel assembly FRU 04W6941

 

And it is just a bezel without fingerprint sensor module (but with socket for it).

I still don't know where we can find a sensor module.

Hey thanks,

 

Yeah I can see you can get the bezel from here:

http://www.compusee.com/lcd-button-bezel-assembly-fru-04w6941/

 

And you just confirmed that it does not come with the module itself and it's just a shell.

 

Anybody knows the FRU number for the module itself?

 

Ron
