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:)

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.

How do I remove/replace the keyboard from a HP Pavillion dv7-2277cl


1. Remove 6 screws from the bottom of the case (as shown). These screws hold the accessory cover.

2. Remove one screw securing the CD/DVD drive. Slide the CD/DVD drive to the left to disconnect it from the motherboard. Remove the CD/DVD drive.

3. Remove all marked screws from the bottom of the notebook.
The yellow circled screws secure the keyboard cover, and the green one secures the HP Pavilion DV7 keyboard.

4. Turn the computer display-side up and open it as far as possible. Insert a guitar pick or small flat screwdriver between the keyboard cover and case and slowly move along the side.

5. Lift the keyboard cover. Be careful, it's still connected to the motherboard. Release the zero insertion force (ZIF) connector and disconnect the cable from the LED board. Remove the keyboard cover.

6. Remove the four screws that secure the HP Pavilion DV7 keyboard.

7. Lift the rear edge of the HP Pavilion DV7 keyboard until it rests at an angle. Slide the keyboard back to disengage the tabs on the front edge of the keyboard from the top cover and rest it on the display.

8. Release the ZIF connector to which the keyboard cable is attached and disconnect the keyboard cable. Remove the HP Pavilion DV7 keyboard.

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.

How do I replace the keyboard in a HP Pavilion dv6451us laptop


To start I suggest you have a No.1, and a No.2 Philips head magnetized screwdriver, a small pair of Needlenose pliers, and a multi-compartment container for the screws.

(When working on a laptop this is the ONLY place I would advise using a magnetized screwdriver. Otherwise NO!)

There are different sized screws, and they also have different threads. It may be very easy to mix these up.

I also suggest you work on a table. If you have a carpet floor, do not swing your feet across it as you work.

(I feel required to post this, because there are those who might work on their bed, a couch, or directly on a carpet floor. These are high areas of Static electricity. Static will fry out a computers delicate hardware components in a flash! )

1.Computer off, remove all electrical sources. AC adapter, (Charger), and Battery.

2.Close the laptop. (Close the LCD screen down)
Turn the laptop upside down, front panel towards you.
Now you are going to remove the Switch Cover.
(Cover under the LCD screen, above the keyboard. Has the speakers, LED lights, Power On button, and so on)

Switch Cover Removal:
Look down in the battery compartment. With the battery removed you will now see three Philips head screws. One on each side. One in the middle.
Remove them.

Turn the laptop back over, open the LCD screen, and lay the screen back as far as it will go.

Lift the rear edge of the Switch Cover, and swing it forward until it rests on the keyboard. (The rear edge of the Switch Cover is next to the LCD screen)
[CAUTION!
Use finesse when lifting the Switch Cover, and resting it on the keyboard. There is a Small flat ribbon cable connected to the Switch Cover. You can only move the cover so far]

Notice that the small flat ribbon cable ends in a white connector towards you. This is a ZIF connector. (Zero Insertion Force) The flat ribbon cable is the LED light cable.

The ZIF connector is composed of two pieces. Think of a small rectangular box within a larger rectangular box.
The smaller inner rectangular box has a lip on it. This keeps it from going down through the larger box.
There is also a lip on the bottom of the smaller box, which keeps it from coming all the way out.

The smaller box is lifted by the top lip, or flange, to release the flat cable.
Again, it only lifts up so far.
It's hard to discern at first how the two box like parts separate from each other, your first time, hence this long explanation.

Looking close at this connector, you will see a thin parting line, approximately 1/16th of an inch down from the top.
Parting line where the two halves, or box like shapes separate.

Use your fingernails to hold the top flange, and the bottom half of the connector. Ease the connector apart. You may find placing your fingernails in the parting line helps, when you are separating the connector. Sometimes you have to gently rock the top half as you are pulling out.

Sometimes the connector top eases up with no problem. Sometimes it's stiff. Again, I advise using finesse.

The flat ribbon cable is composed of wires laid side by side, and installed into a flat ribbon like sheath of insulation. Each wire end has a conductive coating on it. When the ZIF connector is open, the flat cable slips right out.
[When installing, make sure you reinstall the flat ribbon cable in the same direction it came out. Be sure the ZIF connector is fully closed]

This particular ZIF connector may be different from the explanation above. Some do separate, and the cable is still connected to one side of the white ZIF connector.

Lay the Switch Cover aside.

3.Keyboard removal:
Close the laptop. Turn the laptop over, bottom facing you. Remove the Memory Module Compartment Door.
(Looking at the bottom of the laptop, this compartment door is in the middle. It is rectangular shaped, with the length going up, and down.
The battery compartment is above. The battery release latch button is to the upper left, of the Memory Module Compartment Door.

There are two Philips head screws. One in the upper left, and one in the upper right. (Upper is facing the battery compartment)
Remove them.

There are four screws to remove the keyboard.
Right below where the upper left screw was removed, for the memory compartment cover, is one of the screws that hold the keyboard on.
It's down in a small hole. (Below, in the statement, 'Below the upper screw that was removed', means facing you)

To the right of the memory compartment door opening is another keyboard screw. It's on the outside of the opening, down in a small hole. (Right above an air vent)

There are two more screws down in the battery compartment.

Now turn the laptop back over carefully. Open the LCD screen, lay it back as far as possible.
Lift the rear of the keyboard up to a 45 degree angle, towards you. (Rear of the keyboard is the edge towards the LCD screen. The keyboard will only lift so far due to a flat ribbon cable connected to it)

Slide the keyboard towards the LCD screen carefully. There are two tabs you are sliding out of the body of the laptop. (Top Cover)
These two tabs are on the keyboard edge facing you.

Once the tabs are clear of the slots in the Top Cover, bring the keyboard to a level position, and bring it back towards you. (It will only go so far. Flat ribbon cable!)

Lay the keyboard down on the Palm Rest.
Release the ZIF connector to which the keyboard flat ribbon cable is connected, and remove the keyboard cable from the System Board.
(Motherboard)

Reverse these steps to install the new keyboard.

In case I haven't explained these steps clear enough, come back, and let me know.

Thank you for using FixYa.
