Keyboard replace

Forgive me, not advertising for these guys,
(They say, "A picture is worth a thousand words")
As new as the Samsung Q430 series of Notebook PC's is, there should be only two different types of ZIF connectors on the motherboard, used for the Keyboard Cable. But may be three;
A ZIF connector is a Zero Insertion Force connector. The motherboard connector on a laptop, that the Keyboard Cable goes into, is a style of ZIF connector.
Usually composed of two parts; The bottom part is larger in size, and is Stationary to the motherboard. It is called the BODY.
The upper part is smaller in size, and is Movable. It is the Locking Bar. Uses the wedge principle when in the closed/locked position, to wedge the Keyboard Cable into the Body.
1) The newest style has no Locking Bar to release. The Keyboard Cable is gently, yet firmly, pulled on; and removed from the motherboard connector. To reinstall just line it up as it was originally, then push in.
2) I refer to this as the Flip-Up style;
3) And an older style. I refer to this style as the Slide style;
All you can see are two 'Tab's of the Locking Bar, on each side of the Keyboard Cable.
These Tabs are EASED up with your thumbnails. Ease up on one side a little, then the other side; then both sides.
Moves approximately 2mm. That is a little more than 1/16th of an Inch, or about the width of this capital letter -> O <-
IF,....the Locking Bar is broken, or IF,...the Body is broken; you are looking at MOTHERBOARD REPLACEMENT, and why I am being so detailed.
Note that other motherboard connectors, may use a ZIF connector of one of the types stated above, also.
Touchpad Cable, etc.
When replacing a Keyboard, line the flat bar terminals strips on the Keyboard Cable, back up to the contact pins in the motherboard connector.
The Keyboard Cable MUST go back in the same position, as it was originally. Therefore look at the old Keyboard, and it's cable; to orient the new Keyboard Cable correctly.
For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Keyboard sticking

Replace Keyboard.


Just an example. Search for the best price, and a reputable dealer.


A) Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.

B) In the Irisvista link above, click on the photo shown in Step 6.
Look at the Battery Compartment area at the top.
Note the two rubber 'feet' on each side.

The 3 screws that are circled in Red, and are to the inside of the rubber feet, should be removed. I think they hold the Keyboard Securing Strip on.

C) Follow Steps 8 through 12 on the Irisvista link above.
(You are on Page 1.
Page 1:: Page 2:: Page 3:: Find another model, is on the top of the page, and bottom of the page in White.

A note on the Keyboard Cable;

The Keyboard cable STAYS attached to the Keyboard. It removes from the motherboard's connector.

The Keyboard cable is a FFC. Flat Flex Cable. This is one general example of a Flat Flex Cable,

The thin metal strips on the end of the cable, (Will be motherboard connector side), are contact pins.
This end of the cable slides into the motherboard connector. It is on the opposite side of the Keyboard.

Before removing the Keyboard Cable from the motherboard connector, you may wish to make a mark on one side of the cable; and a matching mark on the Same side of the motherboard connector. (Sharpee?)

Even if the cable was twisted from the factory, it MUST go back the same direction it was removed.

The motherboard connector is a type of ZIF connector.
Zero Insertion Force.
It is rectangular in shape, and is composed of two parts.
HOWEVER, it does NOT come completely apart.

The bottom piece is the larger of the two parts. It is the BODY.
The upper smaller rectangular piece is the Locking Bar.

The Locking Bar moves. The Body is stationary, and mounted to the motherboard.
The Locking Bar works on a wedge type of principle, and when it is in the locked position, it wedges the Keyboard Cable in the Body.

There are two types of Locking bar used at present, to my knowledge. I cannot discern in the Irisvista photos, as to which type is used.

1) Sliding Locking Bar;

A) Locked; or can be said as Closed,

B) Unlocked; or can be said as Open,

Here you can see the Body is White in color, and the Locking Bar is Brown.
You can also see that there are essentially two 'tabs', of the Locking bar showing; on either side of the Keyboard Cable.

One uses their thumbnails to Gently ease the Locking Bar forward; and towards the LCD screen.

The Locking Bar ONLY moves about 2mm. That is a little more than 1/16th of an Inch, or about the width of this capital O.

2) Flip Up Locking Bar;

A) Locked,

B) Unlocked,

IF, the Locking Bar is broken; and/or the hinge pins for the Locking Bar on the Body, are broken; you are looking at -
MOTHERBOARD REPLACEMENT, and why I am being so detailed.

I do not have access to my Toshiba laptop Service Manuals, anymore.
According to the Irisvista link there are NO screws, that come up from the bottom of the laptop; and screw into the bottom of the Keyboard.

However I wish you to look FIRST, before trying to remove the Keyboard.
If present these screw/s will be in an area under the laptop, that corresponds with the area of the Keyboard.

Generally are in the Battery Compartment, and can be seen when the Battery is removed.
May also be situated as stated, in the area of the Keyboard.
Usually they/it will have a K next to them/it, or Keyboard, or a Keyboard symbol.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

How do you remove the keyboard on a Sony Vaio laptop PCG-7192L

Let's see if this helps Tom,



The Keyboard Cable STAYS attached to the Keyboard.
It disconnects FROM the motherboard's connector.

The Keyboard Cable has NO connector on the end. It is a FFC.
Flat Flex Cable.
One example of a Flat Flex Cable,

The flat metal terminal bars MUST be aligned back in the SAME position, as they were originally.
For this reason you may wish to take a Sharpee marker, and make a mark on one side of the cable.
Then make a matching mark on the same side of the motherboard connector, BEFORE you remove the cable.

The motherboard connector is a type of ZIF connector.
Zero Insertion Force.
It is composed of two pieces, but does NOT come completely apart!

The bottom part is larger, rectangular shaped, and is stationary to the motherboard.
It is the BODY.

The upper part is smaller, rectangular shaped, and is movable.
It is the Locking Bar.

ACCORDING to the video the Locking Bar is the Slide/Wedge type.

DO NOT use a metal tool as shown. One slip, and you can damage the motherboard! Geez!

Use your Fingernails, or Thumbnails.

The Locking Bar slides up. Up towards the LCD screen, or away from the Body.
It ONLY moves about 2mm. That is a little larger than 1/16th of an Inch.

IF, the Locking Bar is broken, or the Body, you are looking at

Hence why I am being so detailed.

More detail on unlocking this type of motherboard ZIF connector,

A) Locked position;

B) Unlocked position;

There is another style of Locking Bar used, however.
The Locking Bar flips up to a 90 degree position, or also can be stated as Straight Up.

Just to make sure I'm going to include info for it too;

A) Locked position

B) Unlocked position;

My toshiba satellite l645d is giving me error message check connection cable no bootable device

First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

Satellite L655D-S5093 keyboard removal

This is the User's Manual for the L655-S5098 laptop:

Predictably, its useless when performing maintenance such as keyboard replacement, but page 82 indicates that this laptop supports "most USB-compatible [external] keyboards", so, while the chicklet keyboard is down, you can boot and use the system with a workaround USB keyboard.

I could not find an L655-S5093 laptop model on the Toshiba support web site, which is found at

The fan on my satellite L645D-S4050 runs constantly and drains the battery very quickly. Battery life is about an hour as opposed to the advertised 4 hours. I have seen mention of installing and...

First Visit up top Click "Download" and search out your Toshiba Model Laptop. You could try a BIOS upgrade for it, it won't hurt anything, but I seriously doubt your fan is draining the battery that fast, even if it does run all the time. It's possible there is dust in there causing the fan to run all the time, or your power management settings need adjusting. Although the BIOS upgrade, if applicable, may help the fan, and should, frankly, be run anyway if available. I'd be seeking another battery to try, or maybe just buy a new one. If you get 4 hours you're good to go, from my experience laptop batteries die and just need replacing.
