toughbook keypad

hi all — anyone using a panasonic toughbook (CF-29), and know how to remove the keypad? letter "p" is sticking, and I don’t know how to get under the keypad to see what’s up.

I got to play around with the CF-18 and loved it (why the hell aren’t Apples designed like that???)
Do you want me to give the Panasonic rep I was chatting to a shout and see what he says? Apparently they shipped about 800 of them out to Iraq and only 3 reported any problems.

yep, please do. would also like to get a hold of an original toughbook power cable — lost mine, and the generic replacement I found is pretty lame.  apple/mac would do well to hook up a ruggedized model. generally, mac’s monkeywhup the asses off PCs when it comes to hardware design, but the Toughbooks are totally unique.

I too want a toughbook after watching the demo videos..That’s one hell of a tough notebook – a tribute to Panasonic technology and design.

I had a chat with my Panasonic pal and the power adapter you are looking for (CF-AA1653AM) can be picked up in most places for around £/$30-40 pounds or dollars. About the same in the US or UK,just change the monetary symbol.A palof mine picked one up (a generic job) for £60!!!. Big windows I think.

As for the dodgy keyboard?
Obvious question,but are you under warranty? If not then check out the list of authorised Panasonic Toughbook dealers and garages.
http://www.pasc.panasonic.com/WhereTo/FindServicerNS.asp?Pass=1 (put your model number and postcode in the box and it should locate the nearest PC hospital for you). Failing that,give me a shout and I’ll lean on my Panasonic buddy even harder.

Failing that try majorgeeks.com and post the query on their forum. It’s a good site and they are bound to know someone who can help, plus they answer quite quickly.
