Hello,
Purchased keyboard PN: 1-487-387-11 for Viao PCG-7181 when I go to plug in the ribbon to the on board connector, the ribbon appears to be too thin for the connector. Just sits in there loose. Does not appear to have a latch or clamp to squeeze the ribbon cable. Vendor says it should fit by part numbers; has anyone swapped keyboards out of the Sony and had this kind of size mismatch before?
