I though it would be a great idea to spruce up my dirty and crud-filled keyboard.
After taking my time with an old paintbrush i felt myself getting rather adventurous, and soon took out a screwdriver.
After removing all the screws and disassembling my keyboard, i realised this action was totally unnecessary, as the keys are attached on the face plate of the keyboard. It was only when i attempted a re-assembly that i realised my problem... and the hundreds of rubber thing-a-ma-jigs that go under the keys.
To cut a long story short, i cannot get the keyboard working again. There is a large sheet of plastic with circuit board wire on it, and i presume this sits under the rubber things and the keys, and this translates the key presses to the circuitboard.
What i am unsure of is how this attaches to the actual circuit board. When i took it all apart i cannot remember if the film was on top of the board or underneath. The plastic film is actually 3 fine layers, and I dont know if the contacts on the circuitboard sits on top of, below, or inbetween the sheets of the plastic circuitboard.
Any help would be vastly appreciated. (N.B The keyboard is a Turbo Xwing KB3001 R+, but im sure they're all similar in design)
Hmmmmmm...... You should know that you shouldn't dis-asemble your computer or your computer parts unless you know what you are doing.
The rubber things should fit onto some sort of "platform". Where the rubber things are, there should be one of these "platforms" or you should see a goldy coloured circle in the "white film" (what you call it). This "white film" goes ontop of the curcuit thing that you are talking about....
If worse comes to worse, you will have to buy a new keyboard for around £20
I hope I have helped you (at least a little in any way)
