Question about Panasonic CF30 Notebook
My CF-30 needs to have the keyboard replaced due to an "accident" - just a broken key. I have the part but I cannot obtain th4e instructions unless I purchase the $250 manual. Does anyone know where I might find the few pdf pages I need? From the part it looks straight forward with a trick or two. I'd rather do it the official way.
If memory serves, there are four screws that are removed, that hold the keyboard header on. (The strip of plastic under the LCD screen)
Can't recall at the moment, if there are rubber caps, (Covers), over the screw heads. If so, you just ease up one edge of these, with a small flat tip Jewelers screwdriver.
They are held in place by a glue, that's akin to rubber cement. They should stick right back on, if you keep the glue side clean.
(In otherwords, watch how you set them down, in a safe place. Non-glue side up. Good luck trying to keep the little beggars off of your fingertips, or the screwdriver tip. The glue works real well! lol!)
They made a few variations of the keyboard used.
It may have double-sided sticky tape, or it may have flat lock pegs.
For the version with the stick tape, cut it. You peel the rest of the tape off, after you have the keyboard removed. Then apply new double-sided sticky tape, when installing the new keyboard.
For the version with the lock pegs:
Slide the keyboard forward as much as you can. There are four lock pegs, that help secure it in place.
(Flat tabs of plastic. Two on each side of the keyboard)
Now lift up on the end of the keyboard that is nearest to the LCD screen. Don't go crazy, as there is a cable you have to disconnect!
