Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet
Need the retainer cable lock clip for the keyboard connection ribbon to the ribbon in to the motherboard connection
Posted by Anonymous on
Cut a piece of sturdy clear plastic packaging material (like memory packaging, etc.) or extra ribbon cable - cut it the width of your ribbon cable and long enough to handle.
Insert your ribbon cable into the socket and then insert the clear plastic or extra ribbon cable you cut to size into the socket above the ribbon cable.
This usually will hold the ribbon cable in the socket snuggly with enough pressure not to move and make a good contact for proper operation.
If you want cut and add a small piece of high temperature electrical tape to the socket, insert and cable. I do not recommend scotch tape as it becomes googey at high tempersture.

SOURCE: Keyboard replacement problem
in these kind of problems, especially if its a laptop, you should send back your laptop to the manufacturer for them to fix it coz the parts are not really sold in stores and they are the only guys providing these computer parts.. and you don't have to worry about the installation coz they willd do it for you..

personnally I would not try this. If this is the only laptop you have. now if its just a machine you tinker with you can try it. but for functunality I would leave the keyboard intact incase you ever want to use the portability of the laptop.

I just call it the annoying super thin and fragile piece of plastic that holds the cable in place.
You CAN'T get it anywhere. The ONLY thing you can do is try to find another dead motherboard on eBay for parts.
When you do get a board be very VERY careful when you try to remove it from the dead board. If you even look at it the wrong way, it will break ;)
Best of luck!

The little black plastic clip either pulls up or forward depending on the connection.
If the tab pulls up, slot the ribbon cable in as far as it will go and push the tab down to lock the cable in place.
If the tab pulls forward, again pop the cable in and push it back to lock it into place.
Ge gentle with the cable and the tab as they can be broken easily.
