U430 touch battery replacement?

Q: U430 touch battery replacement?

Hi folks, I bought my U430 touch in the Summer of 2013, it's served me well thus far. That is until today, the battery on my laptop randomly pooped out on me, and now I can't even use the thing without having it connected to an outlet at all times. With that being said, I can't find this model's battery on Lenovo's website anywhere, does anyone have a link to the battery on Lenovo's website they don't mind sharing? If not then a reliable third party vendor would be equally appreciated. Thanks so much!

Hi manlyshads ,


Greetings.

Would you have the Machine number for checking further on the details of the pc?
You can see it on the sticker label or visit the parts lookup page .

From the same parts look up page is the part number or FRU matched on the battery sticker.
Use that to check on Lenovo encompass as an authorized parts distributor for availability and pricing.

Hope this answered your query.

My battery has very low life now and I need to replace it out of warranty of course. Anyone know what battery to order and how to order it? This is my first time with a battery inside the shell and of course lenovo has warnings everywhere that using other than a lenovo battery could be dangerous. Anyway, I have searched and searched and cannot find a part number for the replacement battery and how to order one. Any ideas?

Hi all, For some reason my P400 Touch no longer holds much of a charge.  For instance, after about an hour it's down to about 10% battery life from 100%.  I've tried a few "quick fix" ideas that didn't help with the issue, so it would seem the only solution is to replace the battery. Is it possible to find batteries for the P400 Touch still, and if so, where is the best place to purchase one?  I'm a little unfamiliar with the insides of this particular laptop, as I've yet to actually crack it open at any point, is there a guide on the best way to gain access to the battery in order to replace it?  Several questions at once, I'm afraid. Thanks for your time!

Hi Blackhawk,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
The original SSD for this laptop from Lenovo is:
 
FRU 16200316 Model Samsung MZ7TD256HAFV
So this model should work perfectly. But any other SSD with 2.5-inch and 7.0 mm height should also work.
 
The proper installation details is shown in the maintenance manual:

2 keys have been giving me troubble over the past year. I have tried everything to clean them but have finally decided to just replace the keyboard. The parts list for my computer (US) shows the part number is 90203243. This is for the top cover assembly including the keyboard in silver.  The model name on the bottom of my computer says it is 20270. When I allow the Lenovo site to query my computer for serial number, it says the model is not 20270, but instead is 80B30. The site says the keyboard  p/n for my serial number is  25211731 which is no longer available. Suitable replacements listed are 25211609 or 25211670. I see that some sites list the keyboard alone but replacing that requires some DIY techniques that I'd simply prefer not to do. Does anyone know if these 25211xxx p/n's include the keyboard/cover assembly or are they just the keyboard itself?   I'd like to confirm this with someone at Lenovo before I place the order but it apears that there is no phone number to contact the parts dept for ordering. 

A:U430 Touch keyboard p/n?

correction: The service manual/parts list shows the p/n to be 90203245, not 90203243 as stated above.

The fan of my IdealPad U430 Touch becomes every noisy after the computer works for a few hours. I've had it for over a year and the fan hasn't been cleaned, so I ran the Energy Manager Fan Cleaning Utility which took some dust off it but it didn't really make any difference when it comes to the noise.  I am welcoming any advice.Thanks.  

A:U430 Touch Fan Noise

Hi BS5,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
Open the bottom panel and use a compressed air can to clean up the fan. A thin layer of dust can cause the heat transfer to reduce greatly and cause the fan to go high speed to compensate for the higher temperature readings.
 
Please go through this HMM (hardware maintenance manual) for hardware reference.
 
If still the same issue try to update the BIOS and check for the issue.
 
Also, please ensure that you have the latest Power Manager installed.
 
I hope the above information helps.
Regards,         
Shashi

I am actually just reposting this as I've noticed nobody responds a second time.My friend has a Lenovo Ideapad U430 Touch. It just recently shut down spontaneously and now when she presses the power button all that happens is the power light turns on and blinks, the screen doesn't even turn on. We tried unplugging the battery and holding the power button for 30 seconds and pressing it a couple times after. We even tried removing and re-inserting the RAM card (carefully and correctly mind you), since a faulty RAM connection could cause problems with the screen turning on, only to no avail. It should also be noted that she just recently upgraded to Windows 10. Is there any way to get it to start up on our own. Any help would be greatly appreciated. It did not beap after we took the RAM out and nothing but the power light blinks afer we turn it on. Please help!

Tonight I was doing work and my Lenovo U430 Touch fans all of my applications froze. The mouse and keyboard also went unresponsive. After waiting a few minutes I tried to hard reset using the power button. I tried this multiple times and the computer would not shut down, even holding the power button for up to a minute. The display still shows the time when it froze, it would not recognize when the charger was plugged in/out, or caps lock turned on/off (light under key). When plugged into HDMI nothing appeared on the TV. I can still hear the fans going a bit louder than normal. Does anyone have any suggestions? Currently waiting for the laptop to die because I cannot remove the battery (easily).  Any input or thoughts about what this could be would be appreciated.

I got the Lenovo U430 Touch in late August and have noticed that the screen hinge wasn't very sturdy but it was still working fine. But today the hinge is broken and I can't close the screen properly without adjusting it. I didn't drop it or damage it and I looked it up and saw that other people were having similar issues and saying it was a production failure. Is there anyway I can get a replacement or do I have to send it in for repairs? I'm in college and I'll be needing it for a couple more weeks so I can't send it in for repairs yet. And is the $99 fee not covered by the warranty? I called Lenovo support and they said they can't look at my laptop until I pay the fee. I feel like the quality of Lenovo has declined recently. Any help would be appreciated.

A:U430 Touch Screen Hinge

I'm in the same situation as you.  I bought a U430 Touch in August and today the hinge on the left side broke when I closed it.  It's absurd that a hinge would break under normal use and not be covered by the warranty.  As far as I can tell I am going to have to send it in, although Best Buy (where I bought it) was more helpful than Lenovo.  I think Best Buy will pay the shipping and the $99 fee for me.  Since I need the computer for work I am going to wait to send it in.

Hello, I have an IdeaPad U430 Touch with 8GB RAM. After experiencing all kind of strange errors and crashes lately (especially when trying to update Windows 10), I did some memory tests. First with Windows memory tool, and then with MemTest86. Both of them reported memory errors, unfortunately. The laptop is not under warranty anymore (I think; manufactured Sept. 2013). Before I spent money on replacement memory, is there a way to change the memory frequency/timings, to see if that solves the problem, at least temporary? Looking in BIOS I see no options to change any RAM or CPU settings. For the record, the information I have about the memory is: PC3-12800 DDR3 1600MHz / 11-11-11-28 / Micron Technology 16KTF1G Thank you in advance for any recommendation.

A:Lenovo U430 Touch Display Issue

Hi alemano , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
If the laptop is showing display using your external TV then most likely the graphic card would be performing well since external projection of display is an advanced feature .
 
The problem may be the LCD or LCD cables that you can try to unplug and replug checking if there are impinged cable along the way and in the port.
 
Herewith is the hardware manual that can help you on the disassembly of top , bottom cover and LCD panel.  
The user guide here and service training video would also be a good reference. 
 
Take time to review the steps .
Hope this helps you in your steps.

I have read through every thread on similar topics, and tried every possible fix. I have rebooted, rebooted into Safe Mode, unplugged the battery, run the computer to 0%, booted a different OS, unplugged the CMOS and discharged all records, checked the BIOS settings, uninstalled every conceivable USB driver, and run every dialog and troubleshooter Windows has to offer. My issue is with a Lenovo U430 Touch (i7-4500U) running Windows 8.1 64-bit. It was purchased about two years ago. It has the original Windows installation on a hybrid drive, and the only modifications since purchase were a M.2 SSD and a RAM upgrade to 8GB, none of which coincided with this issue. The two USB 2.0 ports on the right side of the laptop (next to the charging port) no longer function. They will charge "dumb" devices, like batteries, but will not recognize USB devices. For instance, on Android devices, they believe that they're being charged from "AC Charger" rather than a "USB Port." However, Windows notices certain events related to them. When I plug a flash drive into the lower USB2 port, Windows gives the following error message: "Problem Detected with Unknown USB Device (Device Descriptor Request Failed), and on the "View details" page, the General tab shows the following:  Device type: Universal Serial Bus ControllersManufacturer: (Standard USB Host Controller)Location: Port_#0004.Hub_#0003

1. I own a U430 Touch now since a few days. I swapped the HDD out for a SSD and did a clean install of Win10 and installed all drivers offered on the support page. It seems that Im missing the energy management driver (which is required for using the dedicated airplane mode key) with the utility.exe or something but I cant find that energy management driver anywhere. Can somebody point me to a fix for that issue? Or if there is none is there a work around?
 
2. I noticed that the notebook makes strange static noises which originate from the speakers. No matter if the volume is turned up or down or mute is engaged, the static noise persists. Is this a defect or a software issue? The driver offered on the lenovo support page for speakers is from RealTek.

Hi all, I've had a discussion about this with another user of the forum, who told me he wasn't sure how to unplug the battery inside his U430, so he just drained it by using the laptop, then pressed the power button a few times to discharge capacitors, and then proceeded to change the RAM module without any problem.I wonder if there's any Lenovo rep who can say if this is an OK procedure and if not can give detailed instructions on how to unplug the battery. From the pictures shown here (http://www.notebookcheck.net/Review-Lenovo-IdeaPad-U430-Touch-Ultrabook.100623.0.html) I see that the battery is fixed with screws, but I figure it wouldn't be necessary to remove them in order to just unplug it for a moment?Any help would be appreciated!

I've had this machine about about a week, so far I really like it.  Can't say yet that I love it yet, but it does what I need it to and the price is better than a tablet with the same functions and already has a keyboard.  This machine is kept in a padded case when not used in my desk drawer it does not bounce around in my briefcase etc.  
This morning the left button on the touch pad does not work.  At first glance it sort of looks like it is caught on something or stuck, the right button works great a broken switch under the button is also possible but this thing doesn't move at all I'd think a switch would still move just not contact properly inside.  I need my machine and I've made a couple of upgrades like a SSD for the stock hard drive and a 8 gig ram chip, I am not thrilled about pulling those components in order to return for warranty replacement etc. as I'm pretty sure you won't be returning the same machine I sent in.  I'm considering pulling it apart to see if it is indeed stuck so it can be pushed back out from the inside but if this is a common issue with this machine I'd like to know that...  
Can I be sent a new touch pad component, I believe I saw this is a separate board that attaches to the motherboard with a ribbon cable?  I'm not afraid of this procedure myself as I've been building desktops since the 90's and this is a really simple hardware to work on from the looks o...

This is an fyi about the final resolution of this issue.  After a lot of arguing dell sent me what was supposed to be the touchpad but what I got was only the plastic palmrest no touchpad. Then because it's a "daughter card" I got more argument about the touchpad.  I got hot enough that I opened up the back, lifted out the battery, took out the two funky looking screws and the whole pad just fell right out of the machine.  The buttons seemed fine so I screwed it back down, put the battery back in and closed it up.  It's now great, the button was indeed hung up on the edge of the plastic palmrest.  This is a very well designed inside machine, it all screws down and all connections are with plugs or ribbon cables.  I wrote back to dell and told them they need to fire their tech manual writers because they're idiots, a monkey could have done this.  Apparently it is not easy to find only the mouse pad it's generally sold with the palmrest from what I can tell.  This whole machine is so well designed I scratch my head why the cpu isn't socketed unless they decided there was no room for a socket etc, which I can see that argument.  So if your mouse pad quits try popping it out first it may just be hung up.

Hello, Lenovo Community, I recently tried updating my battery's firmware. It was going smoothly for about one minute until my charger disconnected and my laptop's battery died and will not charge. My charger has a long history of automatically disconnecting (two blinking lights, one white and one orange) so I cannot power my laptop through the charger itself. I really don't want to get the port checked, so I am looking to see if there are any other ideas from the community.  Here is what's happening:-My charger disconnects everytime I try to boot now (used to disconnect before loading Windows 10)-My battery is disconnected from the system (electronically, not physically probably)-I really cannot power on the system.  Thank you, Lenovo Community!

Hi.I bought the Yoga 520 exactly last year. The battery is dying pretty quickly I am now left with 14,500 mWh which is terribly disappointing.I can now only get about an hour of battery. The concerning things is that, everyday, the battery sheds about 300 mWh.Where can I possibly purchase a battery replacement for my unit?I have included the battery report in this post.

My W540 is asking me to consider replacing the battery. The original battery is a 57++, 9 cells, 11.1V, 8.96Ah 100Wh, Li-ion00 battery. Searched on ebay, cannot find an exactly the same one.  The closest match one is this:  Some 9 cells 57++ is 10.8V, 9.21Ah and Li-ion 20  ----- does this one is better than mine original because of its lower V?----- do you have a reliable seller from ebay or amazon to recommend ? From the Battery Maintenance window I found there is a Battery Health Mode feature somewhere. But where I can find it??

Here is the Service Manual: Manual Unfortunately HP does not "spare" the glass and and digitizer as a separate part. For this you have to go into the aftermarket: http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-HP-Envy-X360-m6-w103dx-M6-W104dx-15-6-Digitizer-Touch-Screen-Glass-US-FA... Note the warning on this auction. You are going to have to disassemble the unit to check the digitizer and see if it matches the one in this auction.  If not we can help you find the right one.

Hi, So earlier today, the touch screen on my laptop cracked. The LCD is fine, but the touch screen has cracked and no longer works. I was looking to see possible replacements. Honestly I don't even use the touch screen functionality, so a regular non-touch LCD screen would work just fine (and be much cheaper too). Does anyone have any advice on where I could find a good replacement? Are there any additional steps I must take? Thanks!
