Dead Pinebook Pro Keyboard Keys
#1
Now that I've rebuild all the broken nut insert mounts in my case with JB Weld epoxy, thus securing the display hinges and bottom cover again, I have several keys that appear to be almost dead. In the beginning of the problem, these half-dozen or so faulty keys were intermittently functional so somewhat usable with "re-tries" but they are no longer usable. (Very occasionally one of them might function for a single stroke.)

I've tried re-seating the ribbon cable into the mainboard connector to no avail. I very much doubt this failure is related to my repair job. Does anyone have experience with keys going dead?

What is the likelihood that replacing the keyboard with a new one from Pine64 will fix the problem? I fear the fault lies in the mainboard, in which case a repair would not be economical.

This must be my year for laptop keyboard failures. My 6 or 7 year-old HP laptop has the same problem but retries still work on it. In owning and using many laptop computers since they were invented, this is the first time I've had this failure!

Cheers,

Cal
