Yoga 13 ideapad type 2191 broken keyboard connector

Hello community,

I have a Yoga 13 ideapad type 2191.

I managed to break my keyboard connector (see photo): the black swivel plastic part that clamps down onto the ribbon cable has 1/3 missing.

Several keys no longer work, including space bar and enter.

How can I fix this?

What is the connector type on the board?

Kind thanks.

They are surface mounted and custom made, so they are not normally available or replaceable without a good rework station.  Sometimes, parts like that can be found.  I have had some luck at Mouser Electronics.

Thanks Rich

 

I solved my problem with 3 layers of tape on the ribbon connector, jammed into the socket. Never thought a working space bar would feel so good. Lets see how long it will last.
