Introduction

This guide will show you how to replace the webcam in your Lenovo Yoga 900-13ISK. The webcam allows the user to engage in video calls, so it’s especially essential in this day and age. The webcam will typically fail completely, throwing up an error when the computer tries to use it or displaying a black screen where webcam video feed should be displayed. However, it’s also possible for the webcam to display glitchy or blurry video, in which case a webcam replacement will also need to be performed.

Be sure to restart the computer and try any known software fixes to try to get your webcam working again before diving in for a replacement.

You also may want to purchase replacement adhesive for the display assembly, as your display may not stick together perfectly once the old adhesive has been cut away. Be sure to remove and clean any old adhesive before applying the fresh adhesive.

Be sure to unplug and completely turn off your device before you start working.
