You happen to be wrong.

Microsoft Surface Book Teardown

On step 13 you can see the keyboard connector, and it has connectors that connect to the board, it isnt soldered.

Now as for replacement, good luck. These are a pain to get inside of, especially if your a beginner with no tools.

I would contact some repair shops and see if they are able to replace it.

Ah alright, I assumed it was just directly soldered onto the motherboard like with the tablet that I have with me. Apologies for this


@lenafox Its ok. But if you click on the device that should be right next to the post, it takes you to the page where you can look at guides, if they have been made, which if its a popular device, a new device, or a device made by a big company will almost always have a guide. You can look at the guides to see if your thoughts on what it is are correct.


Ah I see, thanks a lot. I simply searched on google and looked on the Microsoft site.


@lenafox Yea. I find that companies tell people things so they go buy a new one and the companies make more money. I normally check iFixit first, and then go to the web

I don't think you can replace connectors on a tablet, as most likely they're soldered onto the motherboard of the tablet. If they're broken you COULD go to a repair shop, but I'm not sure if they can fix that.
