SOURCE: Samsung Q430 keyboard removal

Keyboards are simple to replace. Remove the power cord, remove the battery. Turn the laptop over and look at the screws on the bottom case. If you see a screw that has the icon of the keyboard next to it, remove that screw. Look inside the Battery Case there might be screws it in. If so remove them because normally those screws hold the strip that is above the keyboard and there might be some in there that has the keyboard icon next to it.

Turn the laptop back over and open the lid. Pry the strip that is above the keyboard off gently because there might be a cable on it. On most systems the strip above the keyboard will be where the power button is.

Once you have the strip above the keyboard removed look at the top of the keyboard and there might be screws to remove that the strip was hiding. There might be little catches that key the keyboard in place located along the side or at the top. Gently work the keyboard out because there is a cable behind the keyboard that you will need to remove.

That's all there is to it.

SOURCE: samsung NP-R480l laptop not charging

When you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

Keyboard problem


You may just pop the key out by inserting a paper clip and popping it out. You can them fix the contact beneath it if it need to be fixed. It may also have dust, dirt or crud underneath that needs to be cleaned with some Isopropyl alcohol and a cotton tip. Be gentle and do not use force. Pop it back on as it fits on a base beneath it. You may also get another keyboard which is usually around 50 to 100 dollars and easy to replace too.

Question mark on keyboard stopped working Toshiba Laptop


Do you see/feel any condensation or any dust particals? The key may have either under it. First use compressed air under key. Pop off and clean under and pop on again. Refer to http://www.wikihow.com/Pop-a-Key-Back-Onto-a-Dell-Laptop-Keyboard to do this correctly. If not fixed the keyboard may need replaced.

I need to remove keys from my keyboard for cleaning


Most keys should 'pop' off but the tricky bit is getting them back on...
If you remove them I would advise taking a photo of the keyboard ... may sound obvious but putting the unfamiliar keys in the right place can be a test on your memory/recall skills to say the least.
1. First up, you need to use a small screwdriver to carefully remove all keys from your keyboard. Then loosen the rubber pieces from each of them and place them separately.
2. Once all keys are removed from your SAMSUNG NP-N145- keyboard, you can either use an ear bud or a cotton swab dipped in water to gently clean the inner regions of the keyboard. However, make sure that you do not use too much water for this cleaning purpose.
3. After cleaning the inner regions of your keyboard you need to start cleaning the individual keys using a light fluid and foam rubber. After cleaning these pieces you need to leave them alone to get dried up.
4. Once the keys are dried up you can assemble them back into the keyboard carefully. Make sure that the rubber pieces too are assembled in their appropriate places.

Keyboard replace


Forgive me, not advertising for these guys,
http://www.laptopkeyboard.com/Guides.php/Samsung/Q%20Series/Q430/KBSG5
(They say, "A picture is worth a thousand words")
As new as the Samsung Q430 series of Notebook PC's is, there should be only two different types of ZIF connectors on the motherboard, used for the Keyboard Cable. But may be three;
A ZIF connector is a Zero Insertion Force connector. The motherboard connector on a laptop, that the Keyboard Cable goes into, is a style of ZIF connector.
Usually composed of two parts; The bottom part is larger in size, and is Stationary to the motherboard. It is called the BODY.
The upper part is smaller in size, and is Movable. It is the Locking Bar. Uses the wedge principle when in the closed/locked position, to wedge the Keyboard Cable into the Body.
1) The newest style has no Locking Bar to release. The Keyboard Cable is gently, yet firmly, pulled on; and removed from the motherboard connector. To reinstall just line it up as it was originally, then push in.
2) I refer to this as the Flip-Up style;
Closed/Locked,
http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-L645D-L640D/big/laptop-disassembly-13.jpg
Open/Unlocked,
http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-L645D-L640D/big/laptop-disassembly-14.jpg
3) And an older style. I refer to this style as the Slide style;
Closed/Locked;
http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-L675D-L670D/big-body/dismantle-laptop-10.jpg
Open/Unlocked;
http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-L675D-L670D/big-body/dismantle-laptop-11.jpg
All you can see are two 'Tab's of the Locking Bar, on each side of the Keyboard Cable.
These Tabs are EASED up with your thumbnails. Ease up on one side a little, then the other side; then both sides.
Moves approximately 2mm. That is a little more than 1/16th of an Inch, or about the width of this capital letter -> O <-
IF,....the Locking Bar is broken, or IF,...the Body is broken; you are looking at MOTHERBOARD REPLACEMENT, and why I am being so detailed.
Note that other motherboard connectors, may use a ZIF connector of one of the types stated above, also.
Touchpad Cable, etc.
When replacing a Keyboard, line the flat bar terminals strips on the Keyboard Cable, back up to the contact pins in the motherboard connector.
The Keyboard Cable MUST go back in the same position, as it was originally. Therefore look at the old Keyboard, and it's cable; to orient the new Keyboard Cable correctly.
For additional questions please post in a Comment.

My Q430's power connection is loose and not changing battery. Do I have to swap out motherboard?


The DC Power Jack is the jack you plug the AC adapter (Charger) into. (DC_IN)
The DC Power Jack for the Samsung Q430 series of Notebook PC's, consists of a;
1) DC Power Jack, which is connected to two wires.
2) The wires end in a small male plug connector.
It is now a DC Power Harness,

FOLLOWING Anti-Static Procedures, the laptop is disassembled far enough to unplug the DC Power Harness, and plug a new one in.

How do i get my enter button back on my inspiron 1525?


The keys just pop on and off. If the key will not snap back on, then the keyboard will most likely need replacement.
Replacement keyboards are less than $20
