    I've got the same problem - I've managed to source a new Keyboard but don't know how to remove the casing to replace the old one

  • Anonymous Feb 28, 2009

    Keyboard only works correctly when it has been run for about an hour. The problem was caused by water.

    As such I need to remove the keyboard to clean it and if necessary replace the keyboard.

    Where did you get the new keyboard from?

    I've tried to get to the keyboard via the front and by the base as well but it's not clear what needs to be done to remove the case base.

It a bit tricky this one....none of the screws actually holds the keyboard'll need to remove the plate over the power buttons...this is held in by pressure it snaps into/out of do this I eased up the plate by gently prying the hinged brackets up and prying the facia careful its only thin plastic......once you've done that the keyboard is ready to slide up towards the hinge brackets....its a bit tight so be careful but its only held onto the board by the data cable.....reverse procedure to fit new one...

Follow the previous advice (very accurate).

The keyboard has sticky pads on the bottom of it. This makes it a little bit difficult to remove.

The keyboard connection has a little slider on the motherboard slip (don't pull out completly) this out very gently this helps with removing the keyboard cable and inserting the new one.

The keyboard code for the MD9620 is MP-03266GB-442A.

I tried Medion and they wanted £105 plus parts, they would not sell me just the keyboard.

John @ says he can get me one within about a week so I've ordered one.

Given the part number a Toshiba Equium L20 keyboard may work (looks very similar - slightly different key markings - part number for this is MP-03266GB-920).

If you bust the plastic facia, there are a few people selling this on ebay (may help with removing having a look)

I would suggest putting a finger nail between the silver and black plastic at the back of the laptop hinge. Then use a wide'ish but thin flat screw-driver to lift both sides. You will need to lift the plastic along the top of the keyboard as well. Do this carefully. There are however quite a number of catches. The extreme left and right are easier to lift out if you have lossened all the other catches off then pull gently away from the keyboard at a shallow angle as the catches for these sides sit under the silver section.

NOTE: Make sure you have removed the battery and power cord before you start doing any of this as the motherboard is likly to have voltage if you don't. Also beware of static.

    Finally have the replacement keyboard. They had a few problems getting a medion one.

    The keyboard is not a medion one, but it is close enough (function keys have different symbols - you could carefully swap the keys out - but I would advise leaving well alone).

    The details on the keyboard are:
    KB 99N458D0U61390015VHSA
    Model: NSK-ACD0U
    Darfon Electronics Corp

    The connector is slightly off to the left by 0.5cm, but doing two very careful bends aligned it sufficiently.

    Keyboard works so all's fine.

How disassambel laptop medion md41700?

Model not found on support site MEDION UK Manual But laptops have small screws holding them together. And snap locks that need to be released gently. I use my finger nails or a razor blade to start pry open the release snaps. To open up a laptop after removing the screws. Each laptop is different, keyboards usually can be removed after removing any screws and prying up from the top (where the F keys are" other screws are under there for getting to the motherboard.
Cables for keyboard video differ by models and makes as well. You have to know the type of connector used for removal and re-locking when putting back togther.

How easy is it to replace the keyboard on a Medion E1210 (MSI-Wind)??

Real Easy. Just remove the power cord, remove the battery. If there are screws inside the battery compartment remove them because they will either hold the strip above the keyboard in place or they will hold the keyboard. Most times the screws that hold the keyboard will have the icon of a keyboard beside it. Look at all the screws on the bottom of the laptop and see if any of them have the icon of a keyboard beside them, if so remove that screw.

Turn the laptop over and remove the strip that is above the keyboard buy prying it off. You might need a small flat head screw driver to start getting it loose then you can use your fingers. Be careful because there might be a cable under it.

Most times the strip above the keyboard might have hidden some screws that hold the keyboard, if so remove them. The keyboard might also be held by small catches on each side. If that is so work with one side first then the other will simply come out. You might have to bend it a little to get it loose from the catches on the side.

Be careful when you lift the keyboard out, there is a cable that attaches to the motherboard under it.

I need a replacement keyboard for Medion laptop model no: MAM2100. OR MD 96327.I spilled water on the keyboard, some keys work, some don't. Want to replace the keyboard but cant find one to match. I HAD TO...

Check first for a spare on Ebay, that will be cheaper than buying a new spare, but parts for this model are difficult to find.

For example here is a RAM2000 keyboard, contact Medion to find out if it is compatible:Cybercom MD42792 Medion Ram2000 Replacement Keyboard

If you do not find a compatible part, call medion, they can supply parts and tell you what parts are

You need to remove all the screws from the back also, then remove the cover to the rear on the bottom and remove the wireless card (make note as to connection colours) and there is 2 (I think) screws under there, then one also under the battery, then the whole top opens up.

Make sure you have removed all screws from the bottom case, including the four under the rubber feet at the rear.
