IBM Lenovo Ideapad Screen Replacements โ€“ What to know when finding a replacement

A Replacement Laptop Screen will come in two different types. A CCFL version and LED version. The CCFL version is now being phased out in favour of LED Screen technology. The CCFL laptop screen is distinguishable by the inverter connector that comes out of the bottom of the screen. The connection to your laptop inverter gives the power to the backlighting on  your screen allowing you to see the image. The LED screen does not require this same backlighting power.

When looking for an IBM Lenovo Ideapad Screen Replacement you can find out a couple of details beforehand to help you in your search. Firstly the model number of your laptop. Find this printed somewhere on the base of the laptop usually. Secondly find the type of screen or compatible part number. This can only be done by removing the laptop screen so if you are intending to fit your new screen yourself you will need to do this step anyway. For help with this process see our Laptop Screen Fitting Instructions.

The reason you need to find out which type of screen you have is because you cannot interchange a CCFL screen and an LED screen. The technology is different and in not cross compatible. Once you have access to the laptop screen you will see a ribbon cable connecting into the back of the screen. All laptop display panels have this. If this is the only connector, you have an LED screen. If there is also the previously mentioned inverter connector too you have the CCFL version.

So much like replacing anything else all you need to do is find out a couple of small details about which part you actually need and the rest is easy.
