Now removed the main controller PCB for inspection

Component side everything seems Ok. Checked components on both the side found Ok.

So just taking chance by reviving carbon coating on PCB using Pencil.

You cannot do anything on contacts paint on plastic, it is not worth (in past I bought conductive marking pen but it dried up as it does not have more shelf life and even after applying it never last for long time) so I made my mind if not success then return it to the customer with advise him to Buy new keyboard…….

First I cleaned both the contacts using “IPA” and revived contacts on the PCB using pencil. Plugged the keyboard to my computer for testing after reassembling……& the keyboard start working.



Saved this unit going to earth fill by repair. Many technicians are not repairing it because they are not getting any return for time spent by them to repair. I have repaired it because it is under my AMC Contract with the customer.

      Mark,
      Around 35% repair work are because of Poor Connections.
      your welcome.

    In cases like these I always would try to use silverglue if the foil tracks are damaged. And even if the silverglue in the small container bottle has dried out and got hardened it can be made fluid again easily with a bit of added acetone.

    Dear Yogesh: Very good repair. to clean the contacts you used a pencil, did you mean eraser? IPA is always safe, I have used erasers to clean foil, and acetone to clean VCR heads using the the acetone on paper holding the whetted paper against the drum that spins, then turning the head without moving the paper. This was done on stubborn heads that IPA didn't work.The drum would always look like chrome.

    Lynn Blakely,
    "First I cleaned both the contacts using “IPA” (Do Not use eraser)wipe it with lint free cotton cloth then revived contacts by rubbing Pencil Tip on Trace because pencil tip is made of Carbon & Carbon is a electric conductor.Never use acetone on any type of plastic or chances are high that plastic will melt down or get damage.

    I tend to put silicone oil on contacts as this discourages future corrosion.
