    got it! remove 4 screws for keyboard header(by display) then remove bluetooth antenna screw, then slide keyboard toward display as far as possible to disengage the 4 lock pegs under keyboard and lift display end first to flip up. this keyboard is for cf-29 and doesn't have the 4 lock pegs, just double sided tape. works fine with 4 brightnesses and off selections via fn+f12 so i wonder if the real cf-30 emissive and illuminated rubber keyboards have the 4 lock pegs? thanks

    Nope, only the regular keyboard has those locking pegs. All of the others use tape.

    I suppose you can transfer them over but Panny doesn't put them on anything but the regular keyboard.

    I think the peg idea is genious... make the keyboard more rigid against something falling on it or bashing it, causing it to shift, so it would be harder to knock out of place. It add's 4 more places for reinforcement

    Smart move Panasonic :)

    Rob... How did you do that? Just split the pegged retainer off the stock keyboard and double stick tape it to the emissive keyboard?
