How to replace the whole keyboard?
I wanted to replace the whole keyboard, because about seven keys don't work. So in foresight that could last longer than changing single keys (like in the existing ifixit guide).
But this really looks bad (removed mainboard etc.) : http://i65.tinypic.com/rhjpth.jpg
the black spots aren't screws, they are rivets or I don't know how this is called correctly. So one chance might be: cut them all off.
Is the single key fix from ifix it always successful?
I almost forgot to tell the end of the story: Unfortunately I wasn't able to repair the keys itself. I'd really enjoyed that. So I ended up buying a new keyboard+frame for 45€ here: https://www.medion.com/lenovoserviceshop... Everything fine :)
I'm glad they've got a service shop for everybody accessible.
Questa è una buona domanda?
the hitch of my yoga 2 tablet keyboard is broken. can i get a new keyboard ?
The keyboard is part of the upper case.
Here is the link to the service manual.[https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mob.... If you scroll to p.60 you will see the part is #2. On p61 are ALL the part numbers for the upper case. It is country specific so you will have to get the part applicable to your particular laptop/country. If in doubt it should be printed on the underside of the upper case somewhere, which means that you will have to dis-assemble it to find it. The manual also shows the necessary pre-requisites and then the procedure for removing the upper case.
Once you have worked out the correct part number, type the part number ONLY into the search box of your browser and you will get results for suppliers of the part. The price varies a lot so do some comparisons before you decide where to get it from.
