Keyboard ribbon cable connector pin broken
Do I have to get a replacement keyboard if there are two missing pins on the plug in connector that goes from the keyboard to the logic board? The connector seems too delicate to try any soldering techniques that I can handle.
Model MA254LL/A MacBook Core Duo 1.83MHz.
I looked at the attachment of the ribbon cable to the track pad and it appears that it is soldered to circuit board. I was able to purchase a Mac for parts on ebay so I will have a replacement keyboard as well as a replacement hinge and internal optical drive both of which need to be replaced. I should end upwith a bunch of extra parts that I can sell or give away. This old Mac should be humming again.
Thanks for the offer but the new (old) part should do the job. Also if you have ever reattached a ribbon under the track board I would be interested in how it is done.
