4-4 PORTEGE A200 Maintenance Manual (960-499)
Three main types of cable connector are used.
? Pressure plate connector
? Spring connector
? Normal pin connector
When disconnecting a pressure plate connector, draw the tab on one side of the plastic
pressure plate on the connector and pull the cable out from the connector. When reconnecting
a cable to a pressure plate connector, draw enough the pressure plate and insert the cable into
the connector. Press both sides of the pressure plate such that both sides of the plate and
connector are at the same height and that the cable is fixed in the correct position. Pull the
cable to ensure that it is securely connected. If the cable is disconnected from the connector,
reconnect it making sure that you draw enough the pressure plate to insert fully the cable.
For spring connectors, lifting up the stopper frees the cable and allows it to be pulled out. To
reconnect, hold the stopper in the up position and insert the cable, then lower the stopper to
secure the cable.
Normal pin connectors are used for all other cables. Simply pull out or push in these
connectors to disconnect or reconnect.
