TRADE: US keyboard for UK keyboard, Backlit/Chicony for T430/T530/W530/X230

#1 Post by RealBlackStuff » Sat Apr 15, 2017 9:01 am

Want to TRADE/SWAP:

A backlit (B/L) keyboard with US layout, FRU 04X1240, made by Chicony (CHY), that fits on T430/T530/W530/X230 Series and probably others.
This KB is in excellent condition and has evenly lit backlight (not with that bright F6 like so many others).
It almost looks like new!

I would like to swap it for one with UK layout, any one of the following three:
FRU 04W3092 or 04X1269 (preferred) or 04Y0557, all backlit, all made by Chicony (CHY).
NO other brands/models considered.
Must also be in great shape and must also have evenly lit backlight!

PM me if interested.
Shipping to ZIP 18436.
Lovely day for a Guinness! (The Real Black Stuff)

How can you tell if it is Chicony or not?
Probably should be Thinkpad16by10.

Looking For: 386 laptop, IBM or not.

Remove the keyboard, then look at its label(s) on the bottom with P/N and/or FRU.
More research in e.g. the frubom/parts lists will reveal which keyboard is made by whom...
