          1. OK, so it’s easier to replace the whole screen. I can’t seem to find two screws behind rubber covers on the front just below the screen that are to be removed first according to the video for Yoga 2. What’s the first step of the routine for Yoga 900?

          2. I have the same question as Eugene. There is virtually no bezel hiding screws for the 900’s display. How do you separate the digitizer from the display case?

          3. I suspect it’s glued… One might need a hot air gun to melt the glue. This one is going to be very hard to replace… Lenovo charges for this screen replacement over $600…

      1. Thanks for the fast response. Would you say it was somewhat easy to disassemble the computer? I’m comfortable upgrading my computer hard drives, ram, etc. However, I have never disassembled my computer this much. It seems like it’s just a lot of screws to keep track of. Can you comment on this?

      2. Where can one buy a replacement keyboard for the Yoga 900? I’ve googled around quite a bit and I can’t seem to find one. Thanks!

  1. I am considering taking the back off to check for any signs of damage to the USB internals. Last week all of my USB ports just suddenly quit working. I’ve tried every solution I can find, but nothing has worked. I’ve turned off the power saving feature, checked the registry key, checked the BIOS for any USB settings, performed a system restore, performed a clean install of Windows 10 Pro and more. Nothing has worked. It won’t even light up when something is plugged in. So, considering everything, I think it is probably hardware related. However, i don’t have the luxury of spending 30-45 days without a laptop since I use it for work.
    There are two things that give me pause about it being hardware related. 1) The charging/USB 2.0 port will still charge the laptop, it just won’t read any USB devices plugged into it. 2) The MicroSD card slot still functions fine. From your pictures it looks like that is on the same component as the USB-C Port and one of the USB 3.0 ports. So why would it still be working while the other ports are down?
    Any advice that anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated at this point. Thank you!

  2. The main question about display disassembly remains unanswered EVERYWHERE. No youtube video shows it or says anything about it. The yoga 900 screen is NOT similar to the yoga 2 pro screen. How do you get the back panel off the display is the BURNING question? Is it glued (heat required), or tabbed (spatula required)? I cant destroy my display back getting this apart. I need someone to explain how this is done ASAP. Ive been looking for weeks now, and I have a display ready to install, and cant do it.

      1. Well, I had no response… I had to go on this myself. I’m not very happy about those who made these videos that left out this vital detail, and refused to reply regarding the question. FINALLY, after figuring this out MYSELF… is this…

        TO REMOVE THE SILVER PANEL FROM THE DISPLAY MUST BE DONE VERY CAREFULLY, AND WITH A HEAT GUN. I DID IT VERY SLOWLY BY HEATING ON THE DISPLAY SIDE, AND EASING AROUND IT WITH A CREDIT CARD. EVEN IN BEING CAREFUL, I DID SLIGHTLY WARP SOME OF THE BACK PANEL. SO, BE CAREFUL, AND JUST JUST ENOUGH HEAT TO WHERE YOU CAN MOVE AN INCH OR SO, THEN HEAT SOME MORE UNTIL YOU ARE AROUND THE ENTIRE SCREEN.

        I yell becauses no one heard my pleas for help. Perhaps my yelling will help others in the wilderness find this information!

  3. The screen and the digitizer need to be replaced as one unit. They are inseparable without a high risk of breaking, which would be a huge expense.

    There is a service you can search and find online to mail your laptop to be repaired for under $400. The part itself costs over $300, so don’t bother and just send it for repair. Note, if you send it for repair to Lenovo, they charge much more.

    1. Yes, separating the LCD from the digitizer would require some special equipment. Not capable with regular tools at all. It would be a waste to attempt. The lcd/digitizer combo is what you need to buy. If you are buying anything off of ebay for less than around $300, then it is likely the LCD only. Be careful what you buy.

      1. Thanks Eugene, the reason I asked is that different sources name different materials. Thanks for your response
