A3000 repair -- keyboard connectors

Post by SteveBagley » Fri Feb 28, 2020 10:24 am

I'm in the middle of repairing an A3000 and everything seems to work except that it seems the keyboard connector no longer make contact with the keyboard properly. Does anyone know where I can order a replacement?

Thanks,

Steve

ADVERT MODE ON
If you are in the UK then we are cheaper after postage and will be quicker:

Though the pins will need straightening which hasn't caused us any issues when fitting.

Mouser had them in uk stock when I ordered, so carriage was free as part of a bigger order).
It would seem Farnell also stock them for £1.03 each (+vat & carriage), which they didn’t when I bought mine.

The manufacturer’s (TE Connectivity) part number is 7-520355-0. Google throws up a few possibilities...

Edit: Ignore the Farnell one. It’s for 1800 pieces! :oops:

How many do you need - is it just one that’s bad or both?

If it’s only the one, I’ve got one left over from my repairs.

Also looking for a couple. Unless someone wants 1798 pieces, then I'm pretty sure we could arrange something :wink:

I wouldn't mind getting a couple for my spares box (maybe half a dozen). Anyone up for a bulk order? :)

TE website has it's own storefront and these are listed as in stock so ordered 5 units for just under 11USD with free delivery (in fact I made two cents on that delivery apparently).

Says 2-4 days to the UK so will let you know how that and connectors themselves turn out. I shouldn't have any problems with customs and VAT delaying things either hopefully due to their low value
