SOURCE: HP Pavillion DV5 laptop - broken zif connector

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:)

Removing the keyboard broke the plug


Never have seen a Keyboard's Flat Flex Cable, that had a connector on the motherboard end. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Flat-Flex-Cable.jpg

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 piece is the BODY. The top small piece is the Locking Bar.

IF, the Locking Bar is broken off, you may be looking at MOTHERBOARD REPLACEMENT.

Toshiba satellite L775d clock runs fast


The CMOS Battery is bad. The name used by Toshiba is RTC Battery. (Real Time Clock)

Replace it.

1) Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger) and Battery.

2) Follow Anti-Static Precautions.

With a laptop this means buying an ESD wrist strap, and wearing it.
Average cost is around $3 to $6. (Electro Static Discharge)
Connect it's alligator clip to a good ground source.

This is one example,

http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103245

Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.
Use an ESD wrist strap, and your laptop will be safe.

3) This is a pictorial guide showing, and detailing how to disassemble a Toshiba Satellite L675D Notebook PC. You'll find it also works for the Toshiba Satellite L775D Notebook PC,

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-L675D-L670D/dismantle-laptop-1.htm

This is Page 1. Access to Page 2 is provided at the top of the page, and bottom of the page;

Step 17 shows you where the CMOS Battery is located. Click on the photo to enlarge. (You can click on any of the photos to enlarge)

A note on the Keyboard Cable connector on the motherboard, and removing the Keyboard;

The Keyboard Cable is an FFC.
Flat Flex Cable.

As such, it is just a flat ribbon cable with no connector, on the motherboard end of the cable,
(The Keyboard Cable is detached from the motherboard, not the Keyboard)

A) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flat_Flex_Cable

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

The connector on the motherboard is a ZIF connector.
Zero Insertion Force.
This connector is shown in Steps 9 and 10.

Click on the photo in Step 9.
Note the white rectangular 'bar'.

This part of the ZIF connector is permanently attached to the motherboard. It is stationary.

Note the two tabs pointed out by the Yellow arrows.
This part of the ZIF connector moves.

As directed by the arrows, the top part of the ZIF connector moves towards the LCD screen.

This is seen in Step 10.

The top part ONLY moves VERY LITTLE.
The ZIF connector DOES NOT come completely apart.

The top part acts like a wedge, and wedges the Flat Flex Cable in the bottom part of the ZIF connector.

Point?

DO NOT move the top part TOO FAR. As said the ZIF connector Does Not come completely apart.

If the top part is pushed too far, and the ZIF connector comes apart, it is broken.

This means Motherboard Replacement.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Hp g60-630us how to remove keyboard


1) Remove ALL electrical sources.
AC adapter and Battery. Leave the Battery Compartment Door off.

2) Laptop closed turn it over, battery compartment facing Away from you.

3) Looking at the inside edge of the Battery Compartment that is towards you, there are 3 screws to remove.
They are right along the edge that faces you.
There is one in the middle, and one on the right side, that are down in a little indention. (A small drop in the case)
There is one to the left.
Philips head screws. Remove them, place them in a multi-compartment container, and mark the compartment for where they came from.

(DO NOT mix the screws up that you are going to remove)

4) Turn the laptop over, open it.
Carefully lift the Front of the Keyboard up to an angle. (The Front of the Keyboard faces the LCD screen)
DO NOT lift it straight up.

There are plastic tabs that protrude from the back of the Keyboard, and go into the Keyboard Cover.
(The dark rectangular shaped piece of plastic that surrounds the Keyboard, and ends at the Palm Rest, is the Keyboard Cover)

Ease the Keyboard forward towards the LCD screen. Lay it down next to the LCD screen, and on the Keyboard Cover.
You want to be able to access the Keyboard cable's connector.

The Keyboard cable connector is the white connector in the middle, with the ribbon cable leading from it to the Keyboard.
This is a ZIF connector.
Zero Insertion Force.

The ZIF connector is made of two parts. It opens, but does NOT separate into two parts.
The white tabs you see on either side are eased towards the LCD screen.
Use your fingernails.
Push on one 'ear' a little, then go to the other side. Keep alternating back, and forth until the ZIF connector is open. It only opens up about 1/4 inch.

This action opens the ZIF connector, where the flat ribbon cable can be eased out of it.

(To reinstall, line the ribbon cable up in the connector, Insert it until it stops, then squeeze the white 'ears' towards the front of the laptop. {Towards you)

Use EXTREME care when opening, and closing the ZIF connector. If you break it you have to replace the motherboard.

Remove the Keyboard.

Toshiba satellite a25 i was going to change the keyboard and broke the connecter slide off the motherboard. what should i do..


Without this slide the keyboard ribbon cable will not lock onto the motherboard connector and the keyboard won't function correctly.
The connector needs to be replaced, not an easy job, might be easier to replace the motherboard, but this may not be a cost effective solution might be better to buy a new laptop.
The cheapest solution is to connect a USB keyboard to the laptop, but then you need to lug both of these around when you travel.

Replacing keyboard on Balance laptop


Yes, there is a trick. This is a ZIF or zero insertion force connector. When you removed it you probably just pulled hard enough that it let the connector slide out [ :( don't do that next time though ]

There is an excellent "video" of a ZIF connector here at the bottom of the page.

Otherwise look carefully at the connector and see how the connector is divided. It should be two pieces that either slide together/apart or one part flips up and snaps back down.

BE CAREFUL THOUGH! These connectors are very easy to damage/destroy. If you are doing the correct thing to open the connector is should take very little force.

Once you've got the connector open - stick the cable end back in it and close the connector and your keyboard should be working again.
