What is the keyboard connector part called?
Hi! Does anyone know what the part is called where the keyboard connects to the trackpadhttps://d3nevzfk7ii3be.cloudfront.net/ig...? The clip to hold down the connector has snapped off.
Thanks in advance!
Hey Dan, thanks for the reply!
It's the ZIF connector for the keyboard. I have tried to resit it in its original position, but no joy. Not sure if it's a real problem as i was about to replace the keyboard, whilst under the assumption it would be like the Pro i.e lots of screws. Computer says no. %#*@ rivets. But the keyboard did function before the Zif connector broke, except that alt was permanently being pressed.
@Dan, im posting my reply as an update so i can post a picture with it.
I understand that replacing a smt connection is next level stuff which i am , probably quite obviously :(, not capable of. But the keyboard connects to a part which is located on the top of the trackpad (internally) which then connects to the logic board via a flex cable. So i am looking for the part which is attached to the trackpad.
I realise it is quite possible this part isn't available, but i thought if anywhere this would be the place someone might know.
Thank you for your patience Dan ;)
Is this a good question?
