Satellite P300 - Left Mouse Button sticking
Posted: 20-Oct-2010 22:48
 
Hey folks,

ive a satellite p300, its about 2/3 years old and in the last few days the left mouse button has gone belly up on me.
It no longer springs back up when i press it and needs a bit of wiggeling about to un-click it.
i dont mind opening it up if its a reasonably easy thing to fix, however id prefer not to do it if it needs to be replaced.

anyone have any ideas/walk throughs?

Thanks in advance!

Sounds like the plastic button has broken, which may require a cover replacement. It may be hard to fix something like this yourself so the best solution may be to get a quote from an Authorized Service Center.

Yes, I agree wit Akuma.
The touchpad button needs to be replaced.
I’m not quite sure if it would be possible to replace only the button.
Possibly the whole touchpad needs to be replaced…
However, this is a job for a Toshiba ASP technician…
