WTS: A bunch of old ThinkPad keyboards FREE

#1 Post by Half-Saint » Mon May 04, 2020 3:37 pm

I have a bunch of old ThinkPad keyboards which I want to give away to somebody who will actually put them to use. Tomorrow I will be adding the FRU numbers and photos but I think they're mostly from the late 90s and they all look alike. I can't guarantee that all of them work.

My only condition is that whoever decides to get them, will have to pay shipping.

Cheers

Are these the old-style click-keys, not the newer chicklet-style? I could use one and would spring for shipping just to have extra key caps as spares for like an X220i.

Finally found the time to take a couple of photos. As you can see, one is from a T21 and the other from T4x. They should be compatible with several models as I guess most of you know.

T21 keyboard should be in working order. Not sure about the other one but I suspect it's fine as well.

The other three boards are older and most probably have issues.

Where can I upload photos? My regular image hosting service won't accept them for some reason - claims invalid format despite them being .jpg. And the forum doesn't allow attachments.

EDIT: hope this works https://imgur.com/a/NIffo6D

Thanks, the pic helps obviously. None have the key that I need though.

Quite nice of you to do so. Kudos.

I might have to do some checking on which TPs I have and which match any of these - and if I have any dead then get the PARTS out on the forum for people.

Hi I just got a t440 with a keyboard that doesn't work.
will the keyboard in the upperhand corner work as a replacement? sounds like i might have to grind down the tabs and install EC mod, but that's doable.
if it work, I can paypal you the shipping.

Hiya, to me these all look like classic keyboard ("scissor" are the called?) not chiclet keboards (like Macbook or Thinkpads from *30 generation onwards).
If you meant top-right keyboard it seems to be FRU 02K5555 fitting T20, T21, T22, T23.

All these keyboards I understand are really old and are of interest for Thinkpad collectors mainly.
I myself got a bunch of T60/R60/T61 machines but these keyboards are for even older generations.
X220, 2 *T520

ok no problem. i got a classic one for my t440 off ebay.
my current issue is that my 2 key puts out 2 and f12 and my f12 put outs 2 and f12 too. also the windows key doesn't register.
this is a hardware issue since it happens on both linux and windows.
i'm hoping it's a problem with the circuit board on he keyboard - not the main motherboard itself.
i'm holding back on getting a screen upgrade until this issue is resolve.
do you think it's a pretty good slam dunk once i replace the keyboard it'll work fine ?
