ThinkPad 345CS

#1 Post by Franchute13 » Wed Aug 01, 2018 6:35 pm

Hi.

I present my new TP 345CS.

It works very well! This very careful and has expansion of 16mb.
But I have a problem with the keyboard. There are 3 keys that do not work. The cursor key DOWN, the DEL key and the INSERT.
Any suggestions on how to repair these 3 keys?

Beautiful!

It's probably possible to repair keyboard but very delicate. Find some video of someone who has done it. The traces might be corroded or not connecting.

Thank for reply!. Now, I not have time now(I'm restoring an Amiga 3000), but when finish repair A3000 then I open keyboard of the thinkpad!

Do you have a video showing how to pull out the keys of an old thinkpad?

Never done something like that, always replaced keyboard. I would start trying to repair one of easy to find keyboards before working on rare old keyboard to learn.
