Keyboard problem on Xiaomi Mi Game laptop
Hello, iFixers 👋
My friend has a Xiaomi Mi Game laptop (he says gen 2) that behaves strangely - mid section of the keyboard only works with caps lock engaged and is completely dysfunctional otherwise. We have disassembled the laptop and found that one of the traces of the left keyboard flex cable if slightly bent. This may be due to the fact that it is being pressed by a hard drive enclosure. The question is how do we fix this problem? Is it really due to the bent flex cable trace? Or maybe there is something else we should check? Should we replace the keyboard and how difficult is that? Any ideas are appreciated as always 🙏
Maybe someone tried tearing down those laptops - is the keyboard more or less easily replaceable? Are there any hints that can make the process more straightforward?
