A key fell off the laptop keyboard. Fixing the problem.

One or more keys fell off the laptop keyboard and you are not sure how to put them back? Don’t worry, most likely you can fix the keyboard and it’s not necessary to buy a new one. There is no universal repair guide because all keyboards are different. Here’s what I usually do in this case.
Situation 1. The key cap and key retainer fell off the keyboard and you cannot figure out how to assemble them back.
keyboard replacement - keyboard-key-repair-1.jpg Carefully remove the cap from any other working key so the key retainer stays connected to the keyboard.
Take a closer look at the key retainer, it’s connected to the keyboard at four different points.keyboard-key-repair-3.jpg Assemble the disconnected retainer the same way as one on the keyboard and put it back in place.keyboard-key-repair-4.jpg Put the key cap on the retainer and snap the cap back in place.

    Here is our four step guide on how to replace laptop keyboard.


    How to replace laptop keyboard tutorial can be better understood if you have a fair idea about the keyboard itself.


    So let's look at the picture of a disassembled keyboard and
    identify some of its parts to which we will be referring frequently
    from now on.


    This is a view of a standalone dell latitude d505 keyboard from the front side










    In the above picture the demarcated red circles referring to 1 and 2 contain the fastener holes of the keyboard through which the keyboard is attached to the system board.
    We need to unscrew the fasteners in order to release it from the laptop base. More on that later...


    Now let's see how a keyboard looks from the back and what all connections does it have?








    In the above picture, 3 shows you the location where you can
    find the part number which is required when you are ordering a
    replacement laptop keyboard. It also gives you some information
    regarding the manufacturer of the keyboard.


    4 encircles a pin connected to a black cable.


    Any idea why it's there?


    Well, It's the transport system for all the information that
    you punch in onto your keyboard. This cable transports your input
    information to appropriate locations for processing. This cable has a
    pin at its end denoted by 4 which goes into a socket on the motherboard.


    We will show you the exact connections in a later picture,
    because right now it's time to get into the first to do step of our how
    to replace laptop keyboard tutorial.





    Step1: Before replacing a laptop keyboard
    you need to




    • Remove the AC power

    • Remove the battery

    • Remove the keyboard bezel


    After all this is accomplished, your laptop would look somewhat like the dell d505 we operated on shown below








    The highlighted zone shows the area where the bezel rested. After it
    is removed, the keyboard fastener attachments are exposed for
    unfastening and that is what we are going to do in the next step.


    Let's move to Step2 of the how to replace laptop keyboard tutorial.


  • Priya darshan Jan 01, 2009

    Laptop keyboard replacement is child’s play once you have removed
    the keyboard bezel. After that all you need to do is unscrew it from
    the system board and then pull off a plug from the socket.


    But it’s easier said than done.


    However you need not worry because we will walk you through the above steps taking one at a time.


    Now let’s get to step2.








    Step2: Those troubling screws
    Earlier we had seen fastener holes in the keyboard through which screws run (see the keyboard picture for label 1 and label 2). These are the ones that fasten the keyboard on to the system board.



    Now we will take a screw driver and unfasten those screws, as shown in the picture below








    After all this effort we are ready to move on to the next step of
    this laptop keyboard replacement project which deals with other
    keyboard/system board attachments.




    Setp3: Dealing with the cable
    Now that you have pulled off all the screws, take the keyboard in
    your left hand and gently pull it in the direction shown. You will
    observe that a cable from the keyboard is attached to the system board.









    It’s the same data cable we talked about earlier and it is attached by the plug shown as 4 in the previous page.




    Next we will gently pull off the cable plug in vertical direction such that it comes out of the socket.




    Why don’t you have a closer look at the plug-socket attachment











    Step4: Keyboard in your hand
    At this stage your laptop should look something like the dell d505 shown below








    In the picture above the label 5 shows the socket that is attached to the motherboard. This is where the cable plug of the keyboard is attached. The rectangular boundary is where the keyboard sits.


    You can place the keyboard back in it’s position by following the four steps in reverse order.


    That brings us to the end of this laptop keyboard replacement tutorial.

Mac laptop keys are not showing letters but symbols and delete key not working. How do I unlock this problem?


Hi,

There could be a couple of possibilities :-

1. Faulty keypad
2. IC on the main board

Faulty keyboard is more often a problem. Even though there is no dust and dirt, faulty keyboard may result in all the above said symptoms.If you press a letter key, a symbol might be there. If you press delete key, it might not work. The best option what i follow in my shop is replacement of keyboard. There are certain days when i only replace few keys, but more often if this is a problem with more than 5 keys or with all the keys on the notebook, better to go for a new keyboard.For your laptop, always prefer hard keys as those are more durable than the soft keys.

IC on the notebook is again one of the reasons. This is usually a problem with old laptops, such as 5 to 7 years old. New laptops generally do not have this problem. If laptop IC is at fault, soldering is required to get it fixed.It needs a tech to confirm the faulty IC on the mainboard and then followed by replacement.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Keboard will ot tpe soe letters


Use the following link to remove keyboard. Once you remove remove the keyboard plug it back in and follow the instructions in reverse to put the keyboard back. If that doesn't work you more than likely have a bad keyboard and it needs to be replaced. If it is still under warranty call dell and they can send you a new one. If it isn't under warranty then you call dell and buy a replacement.

My keyboard has letters that just stopped working, bad news is the letters are part of my password authorization! I bought a new wireless keyboard BUT because the password authorization is the first thing...


i would buy a replacement keyboard for it. most of the time you should be able to find one for cheap on ebay. they are fairly easy to replace and only require popping off the plastic trim on the top edge of the keyboard, removing a few screws and the data wire. then connect and screw in the new one and pop the trim back in place.

My ;keyboard is typing random letters on the right side of the keyboard p is pi or ip, i is ip or ip, k is k;, comma is , ; semicolon is ;k zero is 80 and 8 is 08 that is all I have found so far.


You most likely have a defective keyboard. Call Dell Parts (800/372-3355 x5) and tell them the Service Tag for your computer (it's on the bottom) and they'll send you a new keyboard (and, if you're still under warranty, they'll fix it for you). If you ask them for a keyboard, be sure to ask them for the disassembly and re-assembly instructions to remove the old keyboard (there're lots of other small parts you'll have to remove to expose the screws that hold hte keyboard in place).
