Samsung R60 plus laptop keyboard removal

Hi - It's relatively easy!

Remove battery.

Close (but not latch) the lid.

Gently press each hinge cover at the rear of the unit where it meets the base unit (You'll see a joint in the plastic) and get a satisfying click as it lifts. Carefully open the unit almost flat (- careful!) and use a small rounded watchmaker's or preferably similar dimension plastic / wood implement to lift the hinge through the hinge recesses until the switch/indicator plate clicks out at each edge. Then gently use light pressure to remove the rest of the plate away from the keyboard top side. There is a lifting point above the keyboard between the Pause and Insert keys if you need to apply a little extra pressure. There are several moulded clip pieces along the front (keyboard edge of the plate). There are no screws or wired connectors underneath - so lift away. There are two screws underneath the case which hold the keyboard in one either side of the CD/DVD drive locating screw. Turn the machine back over and locate the three plastic lugs in th case at the lower edge of the keyboard. Located near CTRL, Spacebar centre and Down Cursor keys, gently press each one towards the front of the machine with a flat edged implement starting centrally at the same time carefully lifting the keyboard unit. There is a flat ribbon cable connected underneath don't tug it but manouver the keyboard so that you can release it properly.

Job Done!

Replacement is an exact reversal of the removal process - use gentle care and firmly placed pressure to click the various plastic lugs int place.

Now ... about that spilt milk in the keyboard .....!

Removing/replacing dvd rom drive


Hi Jerry
I have written down steps on how to remove the DVD-Rom drive for you.
Toshiba notebooks most screws are marked.
F4 - flat-head screw 4mm long
B6 - button-head screw 6mm long
F16 - flat-head screw 16mm long
B8 - button-head screw 8mm long

When you are taking apart a laptop you'll have to deal with lots of screws. Keep everything organized. I keep them in small cups separated easier to find and don’t get lost.
1. Remove the laptop battery
2. Carefully lift off the securing strip at the top of the keyboard.
3. Remove the keyboard securing strip.
4. Remove all screws securing the laptop keyboard.
5. Disconnect the keyboard cable from the system board. Lift the edges of the connector first and then carefully disconnect the keyboard cable.
6. Remove screws securing the power switch board.
7. Disconnect the USB cable from the system board \motherboard
8. Lift off the power switch board.
9. Remove all screw from the support plate.
10. Remove the DVD drive securing screw.
11. Slide the DVD drive to the right and remove it.
12. Slide in the new DVD drive and follow this backwards.

Hope this helps it is not hard just have to take time an becareful when removing the securing strip at the top of the keyboard to get to screws.

Any questions I will be glad to help answer for you.
