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?

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.

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.
