    I am on the fence about doing this fix or sending it in as I can't really go without my laptop right now.

    If someone tries this, could you make a video or take pictures for this thread? That may make me a little more (or less) comfortable with the fix.

    Not sure I would characterize it as advice. I simply answered the request for a video. It's up to the user whether to use that or not.

    It seems odd that an experienced mod across three or four Lenovo forum sites wouldn't add the context or warning and fully inform the customer, BEFORE they do something like crack the case and void a warranty.

    By providing the link it seemed you were implicitly approving of the activity, so I though it was fair to warn the customer of the potential ramifications.

    I've seen a number of people have reported Lenovo told them doing this repair yourself would not void the warranty.

    I was thinking worse case scenario. What if you strip a screw head? What if you get in there and pinch a ribbon cable or something?

    I'm not sure how Lenovo handles the peripheral issues that could come up. I advise avoiding them if possible.

    The only reason this is coming up is because of the extreme lead times on these machines. If the lead time was a few days or you had a store down the street, you would not be resorting to cracking the case open and fixing it yourself. Especially for a manufacturing line quality control issue.

    Oh well, another horse beat to death.

    Yes, certainly we'd have none of these talks if lead times weren't so horrendous.
