Keys 5, 6, r, t, f, g, v don't work on Aspire 4720z. What should I do?


1.Power off the Acer laptop and flip the unit over. Slide the battery release lever over and lift the battery out of the laptop.

2.Turn the laptop back over and open the lid. Look inside the open area on the keyboard where the key would normally go. Check to see if the plastic retaining clip is still inside the hole.

3Locate the plastic retaining clip if it fell off the keyboard along with the key. Use a pair of tweezers to set the clip back inside the hole. Line up the holes on the clip with the four raised nodules inside the keyboard hole.

4.Set the key back onto the plastic clip. Push the key down until it clicks into place.

5.Flip the laptop back over if there are keys that are not working properly. Use the Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the three screws on the left side of the case that hold the keyboard in place. Turn the laptop back over so that you can see the LCD screen.

6.Push the thin end of a flat-head screwdriver under the LED indicator strip above the keyboard. Pop the strip upward and pull it off the laptop.

7.Lift the keyboard up towards you until the long ribbon cable running from the bottom of the keyboard to the motherboard comes into view. Unplug the cable from the port on the motherboard and then pull the keyboard and its ribbon cable off the case. Spray out the underside of the keys and the inside of the Acer laptop case with canned air.

8.Reassemble the keyboard, LED indicator strip and battery.

Keyboard does not work at all.


While Acer laptops are built to be used on the go, they are not indestructible. An accidental drop or even normal wear and tear over an extended period of time can cause the laptop keys to become dislodged and fall out. Debris can also build up inside the keys and make them stick or stop working. Fixing the keys on your Acer laptop is a quick process that does not require taking the unit to a professional repair shop.

1.Power off the Acer laptop and flip the unit over. Slide the battery release lever over and lift the battery out of the laptop.

2.Turn the laptop back over and open the lid. Look inside the open area on the keyboard where the key would normally go. Check to see if the plastic retaining clip is still inside the hole.

3.Locate the plastic retaining clip if it fell off the keyboard along with the key. Use a pair of tweezers to set the clip back inside the hole. Line up the holes on the clip with the four raised nodules inside the keyboard hole.

4.Set the key back onto the plastic clip. Push the key down until it clicks into place.

5.Flip the laptop back over if there are keys that are not working properly. Use the Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the three screws on the left side of the case that hold the keyboard in place. Turn the laptop back over so that you can see the LCD screen.


6.Push the thin end of a flat-head screwdriver under the LED indicator strip above the keyboard. Pop the strip upward and pull it off the laptop.

7.Lift the keyboard up towards you until the long ribbon cable running from the bottom of the keyboard to the motherboard comes into view. Unplug the cable from the port on the motherboard and then pull the keyboard and its ribbon cable off the case. Spray out the underside of the keys and the inside of the Acer laptop case with canned air.

8.Reassemble the keyboard, LED indicator strip and battery.

Need to take old keyboard off, put new one on


use a flat piece of plastic to gently prise the clips surrounding the keyboard(first find the correct position of these clips around the keyboard)then lift out carefully,,you wont have much leeway once the keyboard is free as usually there is a ribbon type cable that needs to be released from another plastic type socket that is very fragile and will again need releasing most likely by another plastic clip that holds the ribbon to the socket--watch out this will easily break so use a small screwdriver very gently,and take care to notice position of all components.Replacement is just a reversal of this procedure.

Toshiba Tecra M2-S630 cmos clock battery location


It's under the Keyboard. It is referred to as an RTC battery. (Real Time Clock)

1) ALL power removed from the laptop. AC adapter (Charger) and Battery.

2) It would be in your best interest to buy, and wear an ESD wrist strap.
(Electro Static Discharge)
Connect the alligator clip to a good ground source.
The price of an ESD wrist strap averages from $3 to $12.
Carried in a multitude of stores.

Example of an ESD wrist strap,

http://ultrastatinc.com/ESD_Wrist_Straps.html

[ Your body carries Static electricity.
Static will fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components inside a computer.
You may not see it, or feel it.
Your computer will. POOF!
I connect to the metal frame of an empty desktop computer case ]

3) Keyboard Removal:

Laptop closed turn the laptop over. There is 1 Philips screw to remove down in the middle of the Battery Compartment, towards the inside edge. (Battery removed)

Turn the laptop over to it's normal position. Open it.
There is a slim strip of plastic that covers screws that hold the Keyboard in place.
The name of it is Keyboard Holder.

It is right above the Keyboard on the LCD screen side, and below the strip of plastic that contains the Power On button, LED lights, and speaker ports.

(This strip of plastic above is part of a cover, that removes when the LCD Display is removed. It isn't an LED/Switch Cover, per se)

Ease your fingertips in-between the latches that hold the Keyboard Holder in place, and the computer, lift up on the Keyboard Holder.

[To explain:
The Keyboard Holder is a slim strip of plastic. Going along it are plastic protrusions, or tabs.
These tabs are on each side of the Keyboard Holder.

Starting from the Left side there are tabs on each side of the Keyboard holder.
Go towards the Right side approximately 2 inches, and there is another set of tabs.
There are 5 sets of tabs.

You need to ease up on the Keyboard Holder by placing your fingertips under it, in-between two sets of those tabs.
The plastic Keyboard Holder will slightly bend, and come up far enough for your fingertips. Then slide your fingertips towards one set of the tabs, and ease up. This part of the Keyboard Holder will pop up.
Keep going towards the next set of tabs, and keep popping the Keyboard Holder up.

Example: Start from the Left side. Come over about two inches from the Left end, ease up on the Keyboard Holder. Slide your fingertips towards the tab set on the Left. Pop the Keyboard Holder up. (The tabs will release) Now go to the right to the next set of tabs.

Once the Keyboard Holder is removed, there are two Philips head screws to remove, that hold the Keyboard in place.
These are at the ends of where the Keyboard Holder was. One screw on each end.
(You'll see plastic tabs coming from the Keyboard where the screws are)

Screws removed ease up on the Front of the Keyboard.
(Front is towards the LCD screen)

Turn the Keyboard over carefully towards you, lay it down on the Palm Rest Cover, (And Touchpad)
(Front of Keyboard comes up, and over towards you)

There will be a flat ribbon cable attached. You shouldn't have to disconnect it, or fully remove the Keyboard in order to access the RTC (CMOS) battery.

The RTC battery is similar to the normal batteries used in a desktop computer, (CR2032), but is smaller in size, and is enclosed in a plastic 'bag'. (Plastic holder)

There are two wires coming from it which end in a male connector. (White)
The male connector plugs into the motherboard of the laptop.
Use your fingernails to ease the male connector out.

This is a link to the Toshiba Satellite Tecra M2 Series Service Manual (Free)

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-toshiba


Go down to the line that begins with Tecra.
Go across to M2, and click on it.

This is a 16MB PDF file. Takes time for it to download. You won't see anything happening until the file is almost fully downloaded, then the first page pops up.
(Medium speed DSL connection it took almost 2.5 minutes to download. May have to have a talk with my ISPO, lol!)

Keyboard removal


Follow this Instructions carefully and do this step by step, you will be able to remove your keyboard.

looked under the battery cover. There you will find three black screws which appeared to correspond to the cover above the keyboard on the upper side of the laptop. After removing the three black screws, begin levering up the edge of the fascia panel nearest the keyboard. This panel serves to hold the keyboard in place, it also comprises the button cover for the power switchgear and grilles for the speakers. use a fine jewelers screwdriver to carefully lever the panel up. Again, it’s a series of brittle-looking plastic clips.
Once the bottom edge of the cover is freed, lift it away from the top edge to reveal the clips that hold the keyboard in place (set of plastic tabs holding the top edge of the keyboard).
Again, with the jeweler’s driver, level the top edge of the keyboard from the retaining tabs and not knowing how much ribbon cable existed, carefully rotate the keyboard up.
As it turns out, remove the cable. To release the ribbon cable, you have to carefully lever the dark/black locking collar back along the ribbon until it is out of the socket. After carefully memorizing the way the cable fits, withdraw the ribbon.
Good luck!

Keyboard replacement for toshiba m35x S149


Above the keyboard - between the keyboard and the screen there is a plastic piece that if you take a small screw driver you can pry off just above the keyboard or at the hinges. Be very careful not to scratch. If you are worried about scratching ifixit.com sells a tool called a spudgner that is soft plastic. This is what the pro's use. Once you have that plastic off you can simply unscrew the keyboard.

Be carefull when lifting the keyboard off. It is attached with a thin ribbon. the ribbon is held in with a clip. gently pull on the clip until it release the ribbon. Once you have the old keyboard off simply push the ribbon in the clip and force the clips back down. Then just reverse the previous steps.

Good luck
