dagoski: Emperor Norton I of the Bear State Republic (Default)
Last night, I spilled a small amount of wine on my laptop.  Damage was confined to the keyboard.  It will have to be replaced.  Does anyone of the flist have any experience replacing keyboards on Mac G4 Powerbook(15")?  I have a set of instructions from Ifixit.  The process looks complicated, but no more so than some of the DVD duplicator upgrades I've done in the past.  What are the pitfalls of this repair?  Anyone know?  The price for DIY repair is about $120 for keyboard and tools.  The price to have someone else do it is $200-$300.  For the moment, I'm going to limp along with an external keyboard.
