Keyboard ZIF connector replacement
« on: June 25, 2008, 03:14:22 PM »
Hey guys, was trying to diagnose another problem on my x1000, and managed to be retarded and break the plastic piece that holds the keyboard ribbon in contact with the ZIF socket. I've tried crazy gluing it back together, and hot gluing the ribbon to the socket. No luck with either, I just can't get a solid connection, although I can manually hold the connector in place and make it work.

Any idea where I can get a replacement piece (other than ordering a motherboard)? Anyone got a dead x1000 they'd want to donate from?
