SOURCE: Replace keyboard on Toshiba Satellite 1410-s173

First remove the AC adapter (Charger) if plugged in. Then remove the battery.

Next step is removing the Keypad Securing Strip. This is a plastic cover right Above the keypad, and below the LCD screen. Looking at it, you'll notice on the Left and Right sides of it, that it has a U-shape.
This U-shape covers the LCD screen hinges.

Take a small flat tip jewelers screwdriver, and come from the right side of this plastic strip. You will see a thin parting line, where this plastic strip meets the laptop body. Your flat tip goes in this parting line. You have to use finesse. It's doubtful you'll break the plastic strip, as it's REAL tough! But if you slip, you could scratch the plastic. (Actually, it's pretty hard to scratch that plastic! Just thought I would caution you. The plastic strip is made of a spaceage plastic. Pretty tough stuff!)

The plastic strip has tabs around the edges, every so often. These
plastic tabs snap into place, and hold the Keypad Securing Strip on. When you begin, it's a little tough to get that flat tip down in there. (Remember ->Jewelers screwdriver!)

Plus, you may be at one of the points that there is a tab. Usually there is a 'dimpled' flat place, that looks like a flat tip should go there.
With the flat tip jewelers screwdriver inserted a little, ease back on the screwdriver, and lift the plastic strip up.
It will look like it's bending. If you have another flat tip Jewelers screwdriver, or a small butterknife, you can insert it, and hold this part up. Then take the other flat tip, move over a little, and start lifting up.

Once this Keypad Securing Strip starts coming up, it will come to one of those tabs, and the tab will come up and out. You'll hear a POP, and think you broke it! You didn't.

Go along the edge, and keep popping this strip up. Use caution, as to how far you insert that flat tip screwdriver!
There are tiny little wires under there, and you don't want to pinch one, or tear it loose. Keep the flat tip, about a half a fingernail length in, and you won't.

Once you get towards the other side enough, the strip will let loose, and come up.
Without disconnecting the wires, see if you can lay the strip towards the back, and lay it out of the way. Towards the LCD screen. You are trying to get to the screws, that secure the keypad. They will be in a metal strip for the keypad, and towards the LCD screen.
I can't remember at this point if there are two, three, or four screws. You'll be able to see, and you'll know.

(Use Caution! You can easily drop these screws! They might go right into the body of the laptop. You MAY be lucky enough, to pick the laptop up, turn it over, and gently shake the laptop, to have them fall on the table. You MAY not be so lucky, and have to disassemble the entire laptop, to get to them!)

IF, the Keypad Securing Strip will not lay out of the way, so that you can get to the keypad screws, you'll have to remove it.
It isn't tough, but it looks daunting the first time.

You will see small White connectors in the middle of the cables.
Two wire cables, if memory serves. These connectors are small White rectangular blocks. There is a Female and a Male. You just take your fingernails, and ease the connectors apart.
Don't worry about how they go back together. They are different sizes. You just match up the size.

Now with the keypad securing screws removed, ease the keypad forward a little, and bring the front of it up to a tilted position. (Towards the LCD screen is the front of the keypad) You don't want to bring it straight up, as there is a flat ribbon cable you need to disconnect. The flat ribbon cable attaches at the back of the keypad. (Towards you) It has a White connector.

This connector is different, from the ones you have disconnected already. The connector itself has a locking 'bar'.
This thin rectangular piece of plastic, goes across the length of the connector.
It is positioned at the front of the connector. It comes forward, towards the flat ribbon cable end, that is connected to the keypad.

It slides. It only slides so far, then stops. It is at this point, that you remove the flat ribbon cable itself. The one towards the keypad. There will be No connector on that flat ribbon cable. It will be just the ribbon cable itself.

When you reattach it, you just slide the flat ribbon cable back into the White connector. Then you ease that locking bar back into position. The position that it started from.

Now reverse your steps.

SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite som of the keyboard is not

Either the ribbon wire from the keyboard to the mainboard has come loose, or the keyboard is going bad. Or if you mean special media buttons that are not standard, Toshiba may provide a utility on their support website that you can download to make those buttons work.

I have got Toshiba satellite - A135. Accidently coffee spilt on my laptop keyboard, and it is not starting. will you please give advice regarding this. Is there any protect cover for keyboard? Please...


All you need to do is prop open your keyboard and wash it. Go to this website and it will show you how to open your laptop up. http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a135/remove-mainboard-1.htm
you can start at STEP 7. The plate WILL prop open, Just be patient. And also watch for the tap connector.
Also, your keys will prop open easily also. Pull with your hands. Just put them together when you are done.
Use a universal cleaner and wait for it to dry before putting the keyboard back together

How do I replace the keyboard?


next to the F1 key and the windows key (2nd upper key and second to last key) are two screws, usually under some covering. unscrew and lift top edge of the keyboard towards the trackpad to lay face down. Undo the wire ribbon by lifting the grey or brown tabs and remove ribbon and keyboard. Then install the new keyboard by inserting the ribbon on the place. Lock down with the tabs and put the plastic prongs (close to the space bar) into the laptop body first, and then close keyboard onto the final position. screw back in and thats all. nboulikas@gmail.com for any additional questions.
