keyboard compatibility - A1106 & A1095 PowerBooks G4

hi there
I'm looking to replace the keyboard of my PowerBook G4 15" 1.5Hz - french Canadian
**it's a A1095** which I'm told is important as far as compatibility goes

someone is offering to try and swap mine for a keyboard from the same PowerBook
only a A1106 1.67Hz
he thinks there's a chance it might work
which contradicts what someone else told me
both seem knowledgeable

if there's a way to know without having to swap (possibly in vain), I'd prefer
I'm attached to this thing and really wish to minimize the risks

if we do try it though...
worse case it won't work but won't damage anything right?

and what about just changing the 12 keys that don't work anymore?
is it possible on that model?
(a little water spill 2 years ago - I've been using an external keyboard since)

I'd of course prefer to find the exact same model keyboard
but it's hard... no French Canadian ones on EBay...

thanks for any advice

Sapo

NOT compatible it seems.

According to Aluminum 15" Model A1095 Parts - iFixit

the two backlit and non-backlit keyboards they list and show for the A1095

"This keyboard is only compatible with PowerBook G4 laptops that are model A1046 or A1095 (printed on the bottom of the laptop)."

G4 Aluminum 15" 1/1.25/1.33/1.5 GHz Keyboard (Backlit) (922-6105) - iFixit
G4 Aluminum 15" 1/1.25/1.33/1.5 GHz Keyboard (Non-backlit) (922-6106) - iFixit

They sell the keyboard for $99.00 but most likely English versions only???

hi again
so I'm still looking
but I'm not allowed to post in the classified section
so not sure what to do

need to replace the keyboard on my PowerBook G4 15" 1.5 GHz

* must be a 1.5GHz processor for it to match *
* it's a French Canadian keyboard *
* AND ALSO the laptop model has to be A1095 *

thank you

1)buy delorean, outfit with flux capacitor
2)travel back to time when your powerbook was current
3)profit!

jokes aside, ebay is probably your best bet, although it might be ambitious to expect to find a french one...

can you setup tracker on ebay? or set a google alert for it or something?

the hamsters that are powering my Powerbook G4 are taking a break right now
(writing from my roomy's laptop...)

as soon as they're up and running again
I'll get to the tracker and google alert

thanks
