How do i remove the keyboard on a sony vaio F2 VPCF23JFX?

I have removed all the screws on the bottom but somehow cannot get the back shell off. I am afraid of using force to pry things open because I don't want to damage the internals.

SOURCE: power socket for sony vaio is broken how do I

On a Sony, many times the power socket is a separate piece that can be replaced. Unlike many laptop motherboards, these power sockets are a separate item the plug into the motherboard. \

Bad news is you have to dissassemble the computer to get at it.

How to open keyboard of sony vaio pcg-6rfl


Remove the Power Cord and the Battery. Turn the laptop over and start removing screws from the bottom of it. There might be screws on the bottom that hold the keyboard, normally they will have the keyboard icon by them. Once you have the screws removed Look inside the battery case to remove any screws. Sometimes there will be screws that hold the keyboard and the strip that is above the keyboard inside the battery case.

Next turn the laptop back over and open the lcd lid. Remove the strip that is above the keyboard. Be careful because there might be a cable attached to the bottom of the strip. Once the strip is removed there might be screws that it was hiding that hold the keyboard so remove them. Now you can lift the keyboard out, but be careful because there is a cable attached to the back of the keyboard.

How to remove the keyboard?


Remove all of the screws on the bottom, as well as the RAM, hard drive, and CD/DVD drive. Then, while the laptop is open, lift up the upper plastic covering on the bottom (you might need a key to get in there) from here, you should be able to see the keyboard mounting screws, make sure you remove the keyboard cable from the motherboard as you remove the keyboard.

How do you replace a sony vaio ux lcd screen?


Basically remove all screws holding the front bezel (screws are behind the rubber thingies). Once you have pried off the bezel there are several screws on each side of the screen. Removing these will be needed, along with any remaining screws on the top and bottom. Once the screen can be leaned forward, with a sheet of paper towel, on the keyboard. There is a long connector at the top of the screen; remove this connector. Another smaller connector is at the bottom, remove it as well. This ought to get you well on your way!
