keyboard replacement part - same FRU Part - but diffrent cable of the keyboard replacement

2019-06-27, 17:13 PM

Hello

 

I would like to replace a keyboard of lenovo 20j1 -004UMZ.

 

The Problem is the replacement keyboard (same FRU) got a longer cable (the other one is correct). That's why I can't close the keyboard. There is no space for the longer cable. (Picutre)

Any Ideas?

 

Thank you very much, regards

 

Lukas

The cables look to be about the same length in the picture.  Which one do you think is longer?  I assume you know they fold in the middle.

The cable in the green lines is the original one with the correct length (broken keyboard).

 

The cable in the red lines is the replacement keyboard, with the longer cable. It goes like to the wrong place to a none existing interface.

 

Do you know hot I mean?

 

The other biger cable on the right, is the same in both parts (correct).

 

"I assume you know they fold in the middle." I guess I know that (If I understand it correctly - I'm not native english speaker ; ).

 

Thank you
