Thinkpad USB Ultranav keyboard - hardware questions

#1 Post by Goran » Sat Jul 13, 2019 5:52 pm

Hi... A right cursor key stopped working on one of my ultranav keyboards. The issue is not mechanical - I disassembled the key, removing the cup, but the key still failed to respond.

1. If anyone has disassembled the backplate and repaired such a key, I would greatly appreciate any advice.

2. I'd gladly purchase the replacement keyboard module if someone can point me in the right direction or has one.

3. Considering that it is much easier to find a similar laptop keyboard module, that differs in the presence of the power key and lack of golden mounting points (see the picture on the link at the bottom), would it be feasible to get one of those parts, break my module and find way to put the mounting point on the back of the laptop keyboard?

4. If there are any other ideas, please do share.

Thank you.

can you check the keyboard on another computer to be sure it is not a driver issue?
