Question about Computers & Internet
Hello, I have a Samsung R519 laptop which I want to clean because it is overheating. There is a flat flex cable which connects the DVD drive to the motherboard. This terminates in a Zif connector approximately one centimetre across. I am having trouble opening the Zif connector. There is a brown locking bar which holds the cable in place. There is a white plastic tab at each side of the bar. The bar does not unlock by lifting with a fingernail so I assume the tabs play a role. The tabs are cut in the shape of a staircase to match the shape of the locking bar. I have had a good look around but cannot find any help on this subject. Your asistance would be greatly appreciated. I don't know if I can post a link, but there is a photograph here https://plus.google.com/photos/116639725367221317059/albums/5933073504689263905/5933073510720871138?banner=pwa&pid=5933073510720871138&oid=116639725367221317059
I looked at your picture, I've haven't seen one like that before. Sometimes manufacturers make it difficult or impossible to replace something without going back to the manufacturer. I would contact Samsung and see if this is the case with your problem.

SOURCE: Broken Touchpad ZIF Connector
Best bet is to obtain a faulty motherboard and use the clip from that - they are often sold very cheaply declared as faulty on ebay.
Please rate my assistance I hope it is helpful.

Can you lift the plastic bar at either side on the board where the cable was pulled from?.If so,just lift both sides,one at a time till the plastic bar is loose,then seat your cable straight down until it will go no further and then push both sides of the bar back down to secure the cable...hope that fixes your problem:)
