How do I get keys back on my Compaq V6000?

The v and CTRL key have fallen off. I can get the hinges or whatever those plastic white parts are back on the key but cannot get the keys back on the keyboard! How do I do that or am I going to need to order replacement keys? Thanks!

Keys have fallen off my hp laptop


If keys have fallen of your hp laptop, you should be able to reattach them as long as there are no broken parts like hinge clips, or the back of the key cap, if there are broken, stop right there, don't do anything else as they will not go on, places like www.replacementlaptopkeys.com have a variety of hp laptop keys, and also installation guide, you may want to contact them for your laptop.

I got problem with key pad of *,5,C, and center joystick button on my sony ericsson k770i...can u help me on how to solve the problem..?? tqvm...


emove sticky tape securing the keyboard cable to back of the keyboard.Part of the keyboard cable is glued to the keyboard. Carefully separate the cable from the keyboard.Start peeling off the aluminum protective film Remove the protective film. After the protective film is removed it's really hard to attach it back to the keyboard because it's deformed.Most laptop keyboards have some kind of plastic separators.
These separators secured on the back of the keyboard.
Plastic pins are melted on the back of the keyboard and retain separators in place.Push all plastic pins though wholes on the keyboard.Start removing the separator.The plastic separator has been removed.
Now you'll have to remove all key caps.
Before you start removing key caps, make a picture or xerocopy of the keyboard so you know the order in which keys are attached to the keyboard.In order to remove the key cap carefully lift it up with your fingers.Remove the key cap so the hinge underneath stays connected to the keyboard.
Some big keys have a different design.
In addition to the hinge, some big keys (Back space or Space bar for example) might have an additional support bracket.Remove the key cap with the support bracket. As you see, the key hinge stays connected to the keyboard.Some laptop keyboards might have blank covers on the left and right sides from the up arrow key.Lift up and remove the blank cover.All keyboard key caps and plastic separators have been removed.Now you can start removing key hinges - key lifting mechanisms.Carefully separate the key hinge from the keyboard.
Each key hinge has two parts - external and internal pieces.
When you remove the hinge, try to keep these parts connected to each other the same way they are connected on the keyboard.If the external and internal pieces got separated, you can assemble them together.If you following this guide to repair the keyboard, I would recommend to keep all hinges in the right order.
The keyboard has two sheets laying one on the top of another.
Remove the sheet with silicone (or rubber) nipples.Remove the second sheet with traces.Both sheets have been separated from the keyboard base.The sheet with traces has two layers and all traces are running between these layers.In order to access and repair traces you'll have to separate to layers from each other.The keyboard has been disassemble.
As you see it's not easy to disassemble a laptop keyboard and even harder to put it back together.
Is it worth repairing? Probably not. These days you can find a new laptop keyboard very cheap.

Some keys popped off...we have all the parts just dont know how to put then back


There should be two white pieces that hinge together. Put the togeter, then attach them to the key. They can only go in one direction, but you can put them upside down. On the white piece the hinges inside the other, the part that clips is going to be flush on one side, that is the side that clips to the key. One attached to the key, spread the away from the key as far as possible. One computer, you will see that it has two clips on either side for the key, one side will be l-shaped. With the hinges fully extended, tilt the key toward you and slide the white piece into the l clips on the board. Press down firmly and you should hear/feel the other to clips attach. It might take a few tries, I usually use my pocket knife to hold the hinges extended while I slip the first hinge in the clips.

How to replace a key on laptop keyboard


a pair of tweezers a small flat head screw driver and persistence along with being careful and if you get irritated or annoyed stop and have a break and come back to it.

Take one of the keys off near it to see which way around the plastic parts go ( not too hard as you dont want the other plastic clips snapping or breaking off ) and see if any little bits of plastic are snapped - if they are you will need replacements so contact asus - if not and they are still in tact then put the 2 plastic hinges together the correct way around and then put them back in place ( you may have to slightly bend the metal clips on the bottom of the keyboard where the plastic bits fit ) which is where the small flat head screw driver comes in handy.

When you are putting the plastic parts together you may need the tweezers or possibly a paif of needle nose pliers ( being very careful as you dont want to snap the plastic clips / hinges )

Once you get the plastic hinges back in / on you can bend the metal parts back slowly and gently so as to hold the plastic bits and then push the key back on.

You should then be able to push the other key back on and that should be it.

If you need any replacement parts then you will have to contact asus.

Hi,

Try fn key, And LCD/TV Or LCD/VGA usually marked on 1 of The number ( Numerical ) Or F Keys.

Remember to switch back before closing down, Otherwise the laptop will try to look for the projector.

The other option is to see, which device is set to boot first from the systems Bios.

Laptop keys


On a presario the keys are hinged with a small metal hinge at the top that fits into two plastic clips and lets the key sit over the membrane of the keyboard. If the plastic clips have snapped it will involve the fitting of a new keyboard which isnt a user serviceable thing.

If it's out of warranty (HP now own Compaq, so it's them you'll need to talk to, but they will tell you the warranty status from the serial number of the machine) you might consider a rubber "roll up keyboard" along the lines of http://www.iwantoneofthose.com/bendi-light-up-keyboard/index.html - these are rubber folding keyboards that can be transported easily in your laptop bag but are still full size.
