Introduction

Here I´m showing a repairablility index of -1 aka bad design.

This Keyboard has been glued together not only with double sided tape but also with superglue making it impossible to repair. All I wanted was to replace the USB connector!

This teardown is not a repair guide. To repair your Rapoo E6700 Bluetooth Touch Keyboard, use our service manual.

    • So I broke off the bottom cover to repair the connector, but then you cannot connect back the flex connectors to the keyboard.

    • Maby we can separate the keyboard from the aluminium housing ?

  4. Well for those who try to get the keyboard off, someone has developed superglue. Yes you heard it, not just sticky double sided tape, also superglue applied in the marked areas.
