Replacing screen on Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5-1470 model 81C9.

Today I’m replacing a failed screen on a Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5-1470 2-in-1 laptop (models 81C9, 80XA). Also, this guide works for a Lenovo ideapad Flex 5-1570 (models 80XB, 81CA) which is almost identical, just has a bigger screen. It is not easy to open up the display panel on this model. If you are a new to laptop disassembly, probably you should seek professional help.

This laptop was dropped and the screen backlight stopped working. I hope replacing the screen will fix this issue. I don’t have another screen for testing so I’m just guessing.
