I want to replace my keyboard for my toshiba satellite P505
Agree with LaptopRepair. The procedure for Keyboard removal is pretty close.
Wanted to add information on the FFC connector though.
If you have never dealt with a Flat Flex Cable connector, you are going to be in the dark, and could break something.
1) The flat cable from the Keyboard to the motherboard, is a Flat Flex Cable.
2) The connector on the motherboard the FFC connects to, is an FFC connector.
3) The Flat Flex Cable removes FROM the FFC connector.
> Just the flat flex cable, comes out of the connector on the motherboard.
Again, The flat cable by itself comes out of the connector, with no connector on it.
4) The FFC connector on the motherboard, does not come away from the motherboard. It is attached to the motherboard.
The FFC connector on the motherboard does not come apart in two pieces.
It opens to release the flat flex cable.
The FFC connector ONLY opens so far.
(1/8th inch ?) It is a two piece connector, but does Not come apart.
Looking at the FFC connector, you will spot a parting line going across the middle.
The top half of the connector looks like a fat T.
The two tabs on either side at the top of the Top half, make the T head shape.
These two tabs are pushed towards the LCD screen.
Ease one tab up a little, then ease the other tab up.
This opens the connector, and allows the flat flex cable to come out.
Install the flat flex cable from the New Keyboard, in the same direction as the old Keyboard's flat flex cable.
One side of the flat flex cable has exposed copper strips. (Contacts)
The other side does not.
Be sure to install the flat flex cable of the Keyboard in the correct orientation.
Do not rate this information. Just added info.
