How do I remove and replace the keyboard on my satelite A 120 laptop. Can I have some instructions please.


Hello,

Step one: Remove the two screws from the bottom of the computer that are holding down the Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Keyboard bezel. The bezel is the bar that sits right above all the function keys.
Step two: Turn the computer over, open the cover and insert the credit card or guitar pick between the bezel and the laptop screen. The bezel has pegs that sit in holes, you need to slowly pry up the bezel. It will make a bit of a popping noise as it is removed.
Step three: Now hold on to the laptop keyboard from the end closest to the screen and gently pull it away from the touch-pad end and flip it over. You will see the ribbon attached to the underside of the Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Keyboard. There is a little plastic connector holding the ribbon to the computer. To unlock it, carefully pull up on the two tabs; one located on each corner of the connector. Be very gentle when you do this as this is the one part that gets broken the most often when changing a keyboard. The ribbon cable will now be released.
Step four: Carefully pull the ribbon out of the connector and remove it along with the entire Toshiba Laptop Keyboard.
Final step: To insert the new Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Keyboard, place the board face down so you have easy access to the ribbon. Make sure the keyboard is lined up so when you flip it back over the keys are in the correct position. Keep the ribbon straight at all times; twisting it could damage it. Place the ribbon in the connector; it only goes in one way. Once in place, push down on the connector tabs to lock it. Now flip the keyboard over and slide it down toward the touch pad and take the bezel and line the pegs up with the holes and push it in place. Then turn the computer over and replace the two screws you removed from the bottom. You can now power on your computer and see if the Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Keyboard works. If it is not working, more than likely the ribbon was not inserted properly.

KEYS 9, O, L, AND . CANNOT BE PRESSED IN LOWER CASE.HOW TO REPAIR?


This sounds like a problem with the keyboard itself. Laptop keyboards are somewhat difficult to repair. However, fortunately they're usually easy to replace.

I found a new keyboard for your pc on ebay at the following address:
http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?_nkw=Toshiba+Satellite+A100-S2311TD+keyboard&_sacat=0&_odkw=Toshiba+Satellite+A100-S2311TD+PC+Notebook+keyboard&_osacat=0&_trksid=p3286.c0.m270.l1313

Generally laptop keyboards can be swapped out by prying off the plastic trim at the top of the keyboard. It's usually just snapped into place. This will typically reveal several screws holding down the keyboard. Remove these screws and carefully lift out the old keyboard. You'll see a ribbon cable coming off the back of the keyboard and plugging into a socket. Remove this cable. Sometime this is done by just pulling up on the connector and sometimes there

Fn key not working in toshipa laptop its model is satellite a505


Hello, Dody.

Give this a try: lift the key slightly, but enough to spray compressed air underneath. There may be debris under the key. Hopefully, that will resolve your problem.

If not, you may need to replace the keyboard.

Please can you supply me instructions and/or diagrams for replacement keyboard for a toshiba sattilite pro a100 laptop


Jasper02:

Good day to you. The A100 is a Satellite, but not a Satellite Pro. Additionally, the exact model of your laptop will include a number of characters following the 100. For instance, it could be A100-Sxx11TD (where xx=22, 23, or 81), or it could be A100-STxxxx (xx=1041, 1042, 3211, or 8211). Therefore, it is possible that there could be instructions or other information available for your specific model. However, there are no instructions or other such indication as to how you could replace your own keyboard at Toshiba. They indicate in user materials that an authorized service provider should handle any such matters. I suspect this is because it is much more difficult than it may first appear - a notebook keyboard is not an isolated piece of equipment as it is with a desktop, as it is an integrated part of your notebook.

Unless there is a real need to do otherwise, if you can not rectify the issue with your keyboard, I would recommend simply obtaining and using an external keyboard. There are a number of different models specifically designed to be small and portable for laptop usage. See this link for Toshiba's keyboard troubleshooting: http://askiris.toshiba.com/ToshibaSupportSite/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=639911xml&sliceId=&dialogID=45559243&stateId=0%200%2045557500.

The link to the User's Guide is here for the A100/A105 product line. http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_sc_docTOC.jsp?moid=1484725&rpn=PSAA8U&ct=UG&soid=1266386&BV_SessionID=@@@@0620704634.1214760254@@@@&BV_EngineID=ccccadeehkeldeecgfkceghdgngdgmn.0
The support home is at the link below, and you can choose your exact actual model from the drop down list (Satellite in the middle) on the far right. http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_sc_modSel.jsp?BV_SessionID=@@@@0620704634.1214760254@@@@&BV_EngineID=ccccadeehkeldeecgfkceghdgngdgmn.0

There are a couple of basic concerns I have become aware of over the past few months, however, that you should be made aware of as well. First, there is a critical BIOS update for the A100 model, and failure to update could result in issues with your battery specifically and your PC generally. The link with the basic information, concerning a randomly chosen A100 model is at http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_sc_supportNews.jsp?moid=1484720&rpn=PSAA8U&ct=SN&hideNav=true&sn_mod=1484720&sn_rpn=PSAA8U&sn_mpn=&BV_SessionID=@@@@0620704634.1214760254@@@@&BV_EngineID=ccccadeehkeldeecgfkceghdgngdgmn.0.

[I do not know if the following impacted your situation, but if the battery was one of the bad ones, it could very well be the root cause.]

Basically, it was discovered that many batteries in the Toshiba models cited were defective and have created major issues - up to and including catching on fire! So, you should check your battery to be certain that you are not at risk. If your battery is one of those indicated as defective, they will replace it free - and they are also very definite about not using the machine on AC with the battery installed... Please take a look at the link --
http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_sc_dtlView.jsp?soid=1788033&BV_SessionID=@@@@0089026791.1212258658@@@@&BV_EngineID=ccccadeefdghjdgcgfkceghdgngdgmn.0&ignore_sn=true.

Finally, if you still believe that you must replace the keyboard on your notebook, you can purchase it from National Parts Depot, which is the company distributing for Toshiba. See link below, and I would suggest contacting them to ensure that diagram and/or instructional document is included.
http://www.nationalparts.com/store/subcat.asp?catindex=1&catid=6606&XPR=06810D7F0D6701660B7E0A860906810D7F0D6701640B770A8009

Not all keys working on keyboard


Try reinstalling the keyboard model drivers. If they are still not working, there may be a break in the wire. If you are using wireless, replace the batteries with some alkaline batteries.

Check out the following information on how to replace keyboards on Toshiba laptops.

Your model may be similar, but it's basically the same. Just be very careful not to break the plastic wedges or the data ribbon.
