Naked Eve V - Full view & Keyboard repair


#1

My Eve has been disassembled and disjointed now.
( ゚∀゚)アハハ八八ノヽノヽノヽノ \ / \/ \
EVE V use Lenovo Japan’s batteries. . .
Cost reduction & replacement parts are easy to find, so it’s good.

Disassembly of body is easy than surface.
It is impossible unless the keyboard is broken. Adhesive around, full of adhesive tapes inside.But batteries are very good to be protected.

I began repairing the keyboard.
I am troubled with the fixed position of the wire.Maybe I’ll extend the strand wire to the connector
But it took time to disassemble the keyboard, so today is the end. see you next week.

(☞◑ω◑)☞Everyone should not break EVE V.

Repair continuation

First, disconnect the broken cable.
I will use a flat LAN cable instead.However, it was hard to bend, so I only used the inside cable.



If I connect the cable here, the repair is over.But, it seemed to be broken soon, so I decided to make the cable longer and connect it on the back side of the keyboard.

Creating a flat cable
Cut the copper tape and match it with the pitch of the original cable.
I am not good at soldering.So I increased the pitch on the opposite side.
→ Temporary wiring also becomes easy

Check the temporary wiring


Check whether there is a short circuit.

Connect the wiring,


The keyboard lights ON! !

I checked the keyboard and found a key that does not react.
This part that was broken down first.The cause was not the same.

Because there is no choice.Further decomposition.

When chasing a pattern and searching for a cause, a suspicious bridge discovery.
The key which can not be used if it is fell off and the key which can not used are the same.

I am fully stretched.My eyes are sore and strained.So today is the end.
Next time I will build a detour for this bridge.

When EVE came to my house.
It was a wonderful experience.

EVE bypass surgery is successful. But there are more problems. . .
I partied too hard.I really messed up! orz


#2

That’s fantastic work.
Could you show us how you opened everything carefully? It’s kind of the hard part with those kind of devices.


#3

Here is the method of decomposing PRO6, so for reference

I basically warm up and pulled off with a sucker. Very slow.
Ifixit uses picks, but I used packing tape(PP BAND).
The surface may cut the film antenna, but EVE is easy because there are no parts around.Also I used an industrial hotplate to warm up.


It is impossible for the keyboard to plastic pick , slowly apply force with a thin metal plate.
The keyboard uses adhesive, so the inside breaks.

Hi yan78
Great work:+1:
Hope I have never so problems:grinning:


#5

(ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧ すこい!
あなたは勇者です


#6

Yeah. I can confirm that the wire in the keyboard can break easily.


#7

The flat cable used for the keyboard can be cut immediately.

EVE tech seems to have thought only about using it carefully.
Was EVE tech unexpected?I throw EVE V into bag and run around.

Very impressive work, you succeed there where others (me included) don’t even dare to go!
It explains the cause of the keyboard connecting problems encountered by some of the V owners.
Congratulations! :star_struck::star_struck::star_struck:

That’s impressive!

You got a nice humour my friend.


#13

Thx for the detailed report & pictures. Hope I never have to get into the situation…


#14

Hi Yan,

Could you finish the Keyboard repair?
Do you have fotos of the end work?
Thanks!


#15

Hi Letisgo

Thank you for waiting and looking forward to it.
I just assemble my keyboard.
It looks bad, but it can not be helped.
I have not assembled yet .because I worked without fixing EVE at that time I cut off the LCD flexible cable. orz

I am arranging parts now.
It is suspended until parts come.

It is very tiring to assemble the keys, so I’m not motivated if there is no promise to recover absolutely.
Sorry for betraying expectations.
I will cure it absolutely if I can get the parts, wait until then.

Although it’s a digression
In the past work, I was cut off the flexible cable of the LCD panel of the under development of a major manufacturer,but at that time the makers’ engineer quickly connected cable into one.
He was a man with God’s hands.( ゚Д゚)


#16

I received the LCD module I ordered, but it was broken by customs officials.
Damn, compensation negotiation from now.I’m piss off!!!


I wanted to have a clean LCD as well as buying a cable.
The goddess of my destiny seems to have gone somewhere.(´;ω;`)
I’m going to goto bed for today.


#17

That’s horrible! Dent and Scratch!
Hope you get new one real soon!
Σ(゚∀´(┗┐ヽ(.◕ฺˇд ˇ◕ฺ;)ノ


#18

hey Yan, Oh no, that is a bad lucky!
Thanks for you message.
I am trying to repair my keyboard, but I had not so much experience and also no the correct tools to do that. Do you think it will be possible to weld the flex cable from keyboard??
If yes, how could I do that?


#19

So more than one person on this thread has a broken Eve keyboard? Anyone request a replacement?

Hi Letisgo
It is easy to reconnect the disconnected flexible cable.
You can do it if you are practicing a bit with this thickness.
Search for “flexible flat cable repair”
However, since the place where the cable runs is where the force is applied, it probably will be disconnect soon.
When applying solder, it becomes strong if a thin wire (stranded wire) is put.
I decided to replace it with a vinyl coated wire for further strengthening.

Because my ability was not able to make a strong flexible flat cable.The durability of moving parts is important.
