How do you release this type of connector? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Some connectors like that has a release in the form of a tiny flap on top, that you lift to remove the cable. I don't see such release so it's more likely you can just pull it out gently.

remember, GENTLY!!!

OK DO NOT PULL IT OUT! those two greyish tabs.. see them? they will go up. there is a flap on top of the cable like someone else here said, and those tabs are the release. Either that or they move towards the cable it is kinda hard to tell cause the photo is so grainy.

alright, thanks for trying to help guys.

I never did figure out How this type of ZIF works, but I tried to just gently pull again and it did come out and I was able to push it back in easily enough.

I think maybe there was a design revision and some models may have had a ZIF, but this one they went with a different type of connector. the picture in the service manual showed it being one of the flap style ZIFs (of which there were two others in this laptop), but there was definitely no flap in the one I posted pics of.

I tried pushing the metal tabs in every which way as well, they would not move.

the laptop is all mback together now and working wonderfully, it is much quieter and cooler now :-) (you should see the wad of dust I pulled out of that tiny fan/heatsink)

+rep all around
