backlit damaged when Disassembling

Hi Lenovo Community.

I was dissembling my lenovo Ideapad z500 and did a terrible mistake.

When I was unpluggin the backlit cable of keyboard, I turned on the laptop, then there was a smell of burning,

and now I cannot get backlit to work.

What shall I do? Do they repair it?

I guess the circuit has been burnt.

Re: backlit damaged when Disassembling

Welcome to the forum !

 

Sorry to hear of your problem.  It is difficult to say what got damaged, the motherboard or the keyboard.  More than likely it was the keyboard.  What I would do is search eBay in your country for a replacement keyboard.  In the U.S. replacement keyboards are reasonably priced and it maybe a quick fix to your problem.

Re: backlit damaged when Disassembling

I have included a link below to the Hardware Maintenance Manual for your model.  The manual can be useful in the disassembly and repair of your laptop.  The manual also lists the precautions that one should take while working inside the machine.  Here is the link......

Hi, thanks for the answer.

I don't know what to call it, because it is electronic.

The place where the socket of backlit goes into on board has been damaged.

what is the placed called. I have to change that.

But I don't know what do they call it

Re: backlit damaged when Disassembling

The connector where the ribbon cable from the keyboard plugs into is known as the FPC connector. Depending on what is damage it may or may not be easily fixed or replaced.  If it is just the clip you should be able to buy a replacement connector and just swap the clip.  If the connector got burnt from a short circuit, replacement would require very good soldering skills or reballing.
