Backlit keyboard upgrade

Hi @Ivo_Petrov,

 

 

Thank you for your query.

 

I understand that you would like to upgrade your keyboard.  The keyboard is integrated into your top  cover, so you would need to replace the top cover, to replace the keyboard.  Here is a link to the :

 

HP Pavilion 17 Notebook PC HP Pavilion 15 Notebook PC Maintenance and Service Guide

 

Please note chapter 3, page 18, item 2 for the recommended replacements.  Please be aware that this is not considered a customer replaceable part. Chapter 6 is" Removal and replacement procedures for Authorized Service Provider parts"   and has the removal procedure if you choose to do it yourself.

Backlit keyboard upgrade

Unfortunately when I opened my laptop, I didn't see where to connect the second cable for the backlit keyboard, so I cannot do the upgrade that I planned. I think that the place for second cable should be next to the place for the touchpad, but there is only empty space...

 

  

 

 

Thanks for the quick response!

 

 

 

Best regards,

Ivo Petrov

Hi  @Ivo_Petrov,

 

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

 

If you look at chapter 6, page 52, of the maintenance and service guide, it will show you the location of the cables for the top cover, which includes the keyboard.  If your replacement requires an  additional connection, then it would not be compatible.
