Unlocking the Keyboard connector
« on: 17:41, 10 April 16 »
Trying to change my mainboard, i need to remove the keyboard from the motherboard.

So there is the keyboard connector to remove, but it doesn't come easy and i don't want to make an error.

It's the same kind as this one :



Do i need to remove it, or is it soldered and i must do something else ?

EDIT : Dumb question : You just have to remove the wire inside the connector :doh:

I think no, the cable simply made contact with the connector as cartridge style, so extract it as you extract a cartridge or some other board connected to the back expansion port

You extract the two cables, not the connector,

Yeah, i figured it out by myself as you can see in the edit.

It seems that the transplant went ok  :P

I have to test various things, but keyboard and FDD are OKs...
