    I'm having trouble sourcing a 4K 17.3" replacement LCD. I originally thought I just needed to replace the LCD cable, but it's the screen itself that's intermittent.

    HWinfo reports the screen as AU Optronics B173ZAN01.0

    (Thanks to joluke and Tech Junky for help with this).

    I haven't found any UK stock of this (or any 4k) panel at any sensible price from any supplier with good feedback. It generally appears to be out of stock, with no alternative available.
    eg:
    https://www.laptop-lcd-screen.co.uk/shop/CLEVO-P775DM3-G-17.3-UHD-LAPTOP-SCREEN__212521.asp

    https://www.laptopscreen.co.uk/B173ZAN01.0-screen-part-number.htm

    Perhaps from France, when back in stock, but probable problems with importing to the UK now since Brexit.

    ebay has some at rip-off prices

    Most are saying they will ship compatible but not identical parts. Any model 4k screen in the p7xx range should fit. Notebook check would list some that came out (I don't remember the models off the top of my head) but the TM models will more likely be around.

    Many thanks. I'll check up on all the 4k screens in the p7xx range.

    Yes, but be aware, that not idendical type will be resulted in loosing gsync. If you do not game on the machine it is not a big deal, however for gaming especially for 4k, g-sync is essential due to lower fps.

    Thanks folks!
    Fortunately I have been able to source the exact model, so no problem about g-sync. I'm not gaming, but smooth rendering is also important for the VJ software that I use (Magic Music Visuals).

    I have ordered from https://www.kreplacement.com/ (thanks to Tech Junky for the suggestion - see my linked post)

    The quoted price was $259.00 USD to include insured FedEx shipping to the UK. With PayPal's currency conversion fees, I paid £194.28.

    Obviously there may be VAT/duty/fees on top. I'll report back on my experience.

    Don't think duty applies just VAT and handling fees.

    That's always been the case for me at least. Seems like a reasonable price.

    Little higher than I would have guessed but, an exact model w/o any fuss is always better than having to return and order somewhere else. They do really nice packing on their shipments as well to protect the panel. A good 2-3 inches of bubble wrapping and several cling layers around the panel to keep it from moving during shipment. It will take about the same time to unwrap it as it does to install it :D
