Ribbon cable for keyboard on Toshiba Satellite

I disconnected the ribbon cable on my Toshiba Satellite LS25 S119 laptop and I am having trouble connecting it again.
The ribbon cable connects to the mother board with a black plastic clamp that popped off. I cannot figure how to put it back on.

Not all of the keyboard letters work.


The keyboard is probably bad. You can test this by connecting an external USB keyboard and seeing if you can type normally with it.

You'll need to replace the keyboard to correct this. Doing so isn't very hard, or expensive, but you need to take great care when disconnecting the ribbon cable from the connector on the motherboard. If you break the connector, you'll need to replace the entire motherboard.

You should be able to find easy to follow instructions, and parts, by Google search for "Toshiba Satellite M-55 keyboard replacement"

How to replace your Toshiba Tecra A2-S119 laptop keyboard ?


It's easy to break the flimsy keys on laptop. In order to better protect the Toshiba Tecra A2-S119 notebook keyboard, some friends, instead, use USB keyboard. But if you work outdoors, carrying a USB keyboard is not convenient. You still have to use the laptop keyboard. Once a laptop keyboard stops working, there is no option but to replace it. You can use these steps to replace the Toshiba Tecra A2-S119 keyboard.

1. Take out the battery and AC adapter, unplugged from the wall, enusre the laptop is fully powered off.
2. Remove those screws with a T-8 or Phillips screwdriver.
3. Turn the laptop back over and open it up. Check and see if the Toshiba Tecra A2-S119 keyboard is tucked under any plastic pieces. If so, find them if those plastic pieces are screwed into anything, and unfasten them as well. If not, it probably uses clamps that can easily be removed.
4. Remove the plastic pieces carefully.
5. Unscrew any screws at the top (if necessary) and remove the keyboard itself from top to bottom. You'll notice that the keyboard is connected with a thin, but wide, data cable to the system board at the bottom.
6. Disconnect the data cable attachment of the keyboard which will sever all the remaining attachments of the laptop keyboard with the laptop computer motherboard. To remove this cable, you have to just carefully pull it out from the socket to which it is attached. Then you can lift out the entire keyboard out of the laptop.
7. Take the new Toshiba Tecra A2-S119 keyboard out of the plastic and place it inside with the right orientation, attach the data cable.
8. Refasten the keyboard in place at the top.
9. If you had to remove any plastic pieces, carefully snap them back in and replace any screws you had to remove.
10. Turn the laptop over and replace all of the keyboard screws.
11. Put the laptop battery back in place and switch it on to check Toshiba Tecra A2-S119 keyboard functionality. If everything has gone according to plan, you should be ready to type away!

You have to remember that once you open up the Toshiba Tecra A2-S119 laptop computer for keyboard replacement, the warranty provided by the manufacturer stands void. We personally suggest that you do it on your own only if you are in a really desperate situation and there is no way you can get maintenance from the manufacturer. I hope this assists you. John

Why is my toshiba satellite pro 4600 keyboard not work?


There is not so much that could be done to repair a keyboard. Disassemble the laptop, check the ribbon cable connecting the keyboard to the motherboard. If the ribbon cable is loose, tighten it. If it is tight, replace the keyboard with a new one

How do i remove the keyboard on a toshiba M55-S3314 laptop?


You will need to use a pocket knife, or flat object to pry up and remove the plastic strip above the keyboard first. I'm pretty sure it is held in place by pressure only, no screws yet (see NOTE below). Once this piece is removed, it exposes two screws that hold the keyboard in place. Remove these screws, and you should be able to lift the keyboard from the laptop. Be careful, as the keyboard is still connected to the motherboard by a ribbon cable that needs to be disconnected. Once you release this cable from the motherboard, you should be clear to separate the keyboard from the Toshiba.
NOTE, if you are having trouble removing the plastic strip from above the keyboard, flip the laptop over and remove the battery. Look for any screws that may be holding it in place and remove those first.

Check the "top" edge of the keyboard -- that part closest to the hinges & the LCD screen.

There may be a few "tabs" going "under" something.

Gently push the keyboard towards you, so that those tabs can be adjusted to move "over" that something.

Then, gently lift the keyboard -- there probably is a small and delicate ribbon-cable connecting the keyboard to the motherboard.
AVOID breaking/damaging that ribbon-cable.

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.
