    Ok, so I replaced my daughters LCD Touch Screen on her Lenovo yoga 520 14ikb a while ago and for a while everything was working well, then all of a sudden and for no real consistant reason, the screen defaults to vertical white/grey lines image and a power reset is required.

    After a lot of online investigations, seems to be a common problem with the LCD Screen cable especially around the hinges CAUSING WEAKNESS IN THE WIRING ETC.

    So ordered a new LCD Screen cable from Ebay for £6 (good price) and removed the original LCD Screen cable but unfortunately during the process accidently broke one of the screen sensors (lenovo ls-e543P) connector that plugs into the LCD Screen cable (they are very delicate)

    Anyway – any ideas of where to get a new / used  (lenovo ls-e543P) can be purchased as only a single seller on Ebay in UK selling one for £25 “ouch”  – I have looked on Alibaba etc. and no luck as yet

    Pics below (from internet) of lenovo ls-e543P screen sensor part and screen when image gets distorted

    Note: I have tried the laptop without the sensor but seems to effect Touchpad and keyboard input, so an USB external mouse only solves half the problem and I do not want to disable the Touch screen option unless I have no other choice ;-)

    so i assume …. seller based in Poland selling item for  £11 is reasonable

    I did notice this seller from US, the item price is good value but alas delivery to UK starts from $40 dollars, which is most annoying
