SOURCE: Help me to unlock a laptop keyboard

I had the same problem for my laptop as well. I basically turned it off and removed the battery for ten minutes, then put it back in and turned it on to which it started working. I don't know why it stopped working before or started to work again when I removed the battery but it's happened three times and everytime that has always worked for me. I know it's not very technical but try it.

SOURCE: Replace keyboard Sony

Hi..

I will provide you a solution this solution are very useful with you. You can do it with your self to follow this instructions. There are some image on how to replace the keyboard.

These instructions will help you to remove and replace keyboards on various laptops. I will not be able to cover all models but you’ll get the idea. Steps for removing and replacing the keyboard are similar for most laptops.
Warning!
- if your laptop is still covered by the manufacturer’s warranty, do not open the case or you can loose the warranty
- always remove the battery and unplug the AC adapter before you open the laptop case
- if you damage the keyboard connector on the motherboard you’ll have to replace the whole motherboard
- proceed on your own risk
Sony laptop
I took these pictures from a Sony Vaio PCG-K33 (model PCG-9S1L) notebook. Should be similar for some other Sony notebooks too.
sony-keyboard-1.jpg Insert a small flathead screwdriver under the keyboard bezel and carefully lift it up. Continue releasing plastic latches and removing the keyboard bezel with your fingers.
sony-keyboard-2.jpg
Be careful, on some models the bezel might be connected to the motherboard as it shown on the picture above. If you accidentally pulled the cable, connect it back. It is not necessary to disconnect the keyboard bezel from the motherboard in order to remove and replace the keyboard, just put it aside so you can access the keyboard screws.
sony-keyboard-3.jpg Remove three (or more) screws from the top of the keyboard. Carefully lift up the keyboard from the laptop case.
sony-keyboard-4.jpg The keyboard connects to the motherboard via a flat ribbon cable. Before you pull the cable from the connector, you’ll have to unlock the connector.
sony-keyboard-5.jpg The image above illustrates how to unlock the keyboard connector. Carefully move the connector lock 2-3 millimeters up and after that pull the keyboard cable. To install the keyboard, follow the above mentioned steps in the reverse order.
Toshiba laptop
The following pictures were taken from a Toshiba Satellite A135 laptop. The keyboard removal instructions will be almost the same for most modern Toshiba laptops.
toshiba-keyboard-1.jpg The keyboard bezel removal procedure is similar to the above mentioned Sony Vaio laptop. Lift it up with a small screwdriver and remove using fingers. On most Toshiba laptops the keyboard bezel doesn’t have any circuit board underneath, it’s just a piece of plastic and you don’t have to worry about cables.
toshiba-keyboard-2.jpg After the bezel is removed you get an access to the keyboard screws. Remove two (or more) screws. Release the plastic latch pointed with the red arrow and lift up the keyboard. Carefully put the keyboard aside so you can access the connector underneath the keyboard. Do not forget that the keyboard is still connected to the motherboard.
toshiba-keyboard-3.jpg Before you remove the keyboard, you’ll have to open the connector and release the flat ribbon cable.
toshiba-keyboard-4.jpg Here’s a closeup picture of the keyboard connector on the motherboard. Be careful, this type of connector is fragile. On the left image the connector is closed. On the right image the connector is opened. Unlock the connector by moving the lock up as it shown on the right image and after that release the ribbon cable. Remove and replace the keyboard. For assembly instructions follow all the steps in the reverse order.


Hope it is helpful for you!

How do you remove the keyboard on a Sony Vaio laptop PCG-7192L


Let's see if this helps Tom,

1) http://laptoppartstore.weebly.com/replace--remove-sony-vaio-vgn-nw-keyboard.html

2) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8BEcX_0KYIE

The Keyboard Cable STAYS attached to the Keyboard.
It disconnects FROM the motherboard's connector.

The Keyboard Cable has NO connector on the end. It is a FFC.
Flat Flex Cable.
One example of a Flat Flex Cable,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Flat-Flex-Cable.jpg

The flat metal terminal bars MUST be aligned back in the SAME position, as they were originally.
For this reason you may wish to take a Sharpee marker, and make a mark on one side of the cable.
Then make a matching mark on the same side of the motherboard connector, BEFORE you remove the cable.

The motherboard connector is a type of ZIF connector.
Zero Insertion Force.
It is composed of two pieces, but does NOT come completely apart!

The bottom part is larger, rectangular shaped, and is stationary to the motherboard.
It is the BODY.

The upper part is smaller, rectangular shaped, and is movable.
It is the Locking Bar.

ACCORDING to the video the Locking Bar is the Slide/Wedge type.

DO NOT use a metal tool as shown. One slip, and you can damage the motherboard! Geez!

Use your Fingernails, or Thumbnails.

The Locking Bar slides up. Up towards the LCD screen, or away from the Body.
It ONLY moves about 2mm. That is a little larger than 1/16th of an Inch.

IF, the Locking Bar is broken, or the Body, you are looking at
-> MOTHERBOARD REPLACEMENT!!

Hence why I am being so detailed.

More detail on unlocking this type of motherboard ZIF connector,

A) Locked position;

B) Unlocked position;

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-C650-C655/body-big/disassemble-toshiba-c655-12.jpg

There is another style of Locking Bar used, however.
The Locking Bar flips up to a 90 degree position, or also can be stated as Straight Up.

Just to make sure I'm going to include info for it too;

A) Locked position

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-L645D-L640D/big/laptop-disassembly-13.jpg

B) Unlocked position;

How to unlock my sony keyboard vgp-wkb5fr


Accidentally locking your Vaio keyboard can cause typed letters and/or numbers to appear on the screen very slowly, or not at all. The locking function can occur if a user holds down the shift key for more than eight seconds. This feature can be unlocked through the computer's Microsoft Accessibility Options.


1. Click "Start," "Control Panel," "Ease of Access" and "Ease of Access Center."


2. Click "Make the keyboard easier to use." A new window will appear.


3. Remove the check-marks next to "Turn on Mouse Keys," "Turn on "Stick Keys" and "Turn on Filter Keys." This unlocks your keyboard.


4. Click "Apply" to save changes, then "OK" to exit the window.



if you think i misunderstands your problem or you have any other problem you can post again

I'm using a sony vaio Core i7 with Windows 7. While writing something suddenly i found the cursor have moved somewhere else from where i was writing. Can anyone please help?


It could be that your hand accidentally hit the touchpad while you were typing, which would have moved the cursor. I've done this a few times before, so I'm fairly certain that's what happened. The cursor won't move on its own unless someone is controlling it, and it's highly unlikely that you have a trojan or a virus that is doing that.

Hope this helps!

Please help. The 789uiopjkl;m./ keys have keypad numerals on the front bevel. when I try to type "uio" for example I get "456" and "jkl" gives me "123". To get the...


The number lock feature is enabled. You should see an indicator for the Num Lock (lit when on) that is next to the Caps Lock indicator.

You should be able to disable the lock by pressing Fn and Num Lock together on the keyboard. (On some Sony Vaio keyboards, type CTRL+ALT+NumLock or Shift+NumLock.) The number lock should be at the top of the keyboard near the F1-F12 keys. Sometimes the key is shared with the Scroll Lock function (otherwise it will be nearby). It's really easy for the Number lock to be enabled on some Sony keyboards; just some dirt between the keys can enable it when you didn't turn it on intentionally.

I hope this helps.

(I don't have the VGP-WKB1 wireless Sony keyboard and can't find a good picture of it to find the Num Lock key for this model.)

How to unlock locked Sony VAIO documents?


Right click on the documents (or the folder containing the documents)
Now select "properties"
Depending on what version of windows you are using there will be some differences.
On Windows 7 for example, you now click on the "General" tab.
You will see a check box for "read-only". Make sure this is turned OFF and then click "apply".

Good luck.

Keep the palms of your hands away from the "touchpad" -- you're accidentally moving the mouse-pointer as your fingers press on the keys.
