Question about Toshiba Qosmio Computers & Internet
The Keyboard Cable STAYS attached to the Keyboard. It removes from the motherboard connector.
The Keyboard Cable is a FFC. Flat Flex Cable,
As such it has NO plug connector on the end.
The flat bar terminal strips of the cable, MUST go back to the same position they were in originally; when reinstalling.
For this reason you may wish to make a mark on one side of the cable, (Sharpee?), and a matching mark on the same side of the motherboard connector.
[Even if the cable is twisted, flopped over, or going to Hawaii for vacation, from the factory; the cable still must go back in that original position ]
The motherboard connector is a type of ZIF connector.
Zero Insertion Force.
It is rectangular in shape, and composed of two pieces, but does NOT come completely apart!
The bottom part is larger in size, and stays stationary to the motherboard. This is the BODY.
The top part is smaller in size, and is movable.
This is the Locking Bar.
This particular style has a Sliding Locking Bar,
Locked, or can be stated as Closed;
Unlocked, or Open;
IF, the Locking Bar is broken, or the Body; you are looking at MOTHERBOARD REPLACEMENT, and why I am being so detailed.
Remove ALL power first. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.
Use an ESD wrist strap, and connect it's alligator clip to a good ground source.
(Electro Static Discharge)
Average cost is around $3 to $6.
Don't use one, and when you are done you can use the laptop for a Frisbee.
Or an expensive paperweight.
Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws you will remove.
Label each compartment for the area the screw/s come out of.
SOME screws look VERY similar to other screws.
Advise do NOT mix them up.
May I be inquisitive? Why are you disassembling?
For additional questions please post in a Comment.
