Hi guys,

yesterday I had my display broken on my beloved X41 tablet. I have a model without fingerprint reader.

I have searched ebay for LCD assemblies and found only those that have fingerprint reader on the bezel.

I have asked the sellers whether they are interchangeable (I don't need the reader itself - only the display function) - but they didn't confirm they are.

I have looked through the service manual of this particular model - nothing found there as well.

So, if I buy an LCD assembly with fingerprint reader and install this on a model that didn't have this reader before... will the LCD work? again, I don't need the reader itself to work, only an LCD.

Thanks in advance

The LCD in X41T panels are all the same.
You can buy just the LCD-panel, or a complete lid, either with or without FP reader, they will all work.
You can put your old non-FPR bezel back on instead if you like.
An X41 (non-tablet) LCD will also fit, but you will need to transfer the pressure-sensitive top-layer and matching electronics from your broken screen. Quite a job for the uninitiated.

Yeh, it'll work. I've changed complete displays with or without the FP reader.

Edit: RBS beat me to it.

And you can get the FP reader to work if you solder the 4pin connector to the motherboard, all motherboards support it.
I did it on my X41 non-Tablet and FP reader works perfectly with FP bezel.
