Sep 4, 2009
My Apple Wireless Keyboard Stopped Working, i don't know what problem it is. its just stop, after i leave it one week without battery. this keyboard just 2 months old, any suggestion so i can get it repaired...?, is it possible to bring keyboard to apple retailer, and get it fixed there ?
I have an Apple wireless keyboard and the F1 and F2 keys don't work. I am connecting to a early 2010 Mac mini and running OS X 10.7.4. Seemed like it quit working when I updated to 10.7.4. I've reset my SMC and PRAM twice. Is this a 10.7.4 bug? Any fixes?
im writin this message usin os x's keyboard viewer so its gonna be short.
i got an 20'' imac with apple bt wireless keyboard [i dont know if its relevant but i got xp installed w/bootcamp],it worked fine untill 2 days ago , it suddenly lost connection with the mac,i tried updatin / replacing batteries / and pairing it,it saying that the connection established with the keyboard but nothing works...
I installed 10.5.7 yesterday. Immediately after the installation was complete, my Apple bluetooth keyboard stopped working. Went into Bluetooth system settings, and it said that there was no bluetooth hardware found... (it's built into the machine!!)...
Also, every time I start iTunes, it gives some weird error about Adobe Flash player. I'm not at home now so I don't have the exact wording of the error with me, sorry...
during SW to my mini-mac wireless key board the keyboard stop responding. now i have left without an ability to work with my wireless keyboard. is there any why to reset the keyboard to default setting so it will come to live again..
My bluetooth wirless keyboard suddenly stopped working. It started with the low battery alert, so I changed the batteries, however after replacing the batteries, it stopped working even though it says connected.
I have an Apple 3-battery Wireless Keyboard, and I noticed that the battery drains out every 1-2 days. I don't own a Magic Mouse, and I know that's been the source of many AWK battery problems of late, but just to state it again, I don't own a Magic Mouse. I use Duracell rechargeables.
I was having trouble with apple wireless keyboard becasue it was not connecting to my imac (running on mac os x). it says "the pairing attempt attempt was inseccessful. make sure your device is in range of this computer, turned on and "discoverable" when ready click continue to try again.
So for Christmas I received an Apple wireless keyboard to use with my macbook. All the regular keys are working just fine, but there is something wrong with the function keys. For example, the exposï¿½ dashboard and brightness keys just dont work, and when I press the key with the fast forward picture on it, it goes into exposï¿½ mode. Not even the sound buttons are working they are used as dashboard and clear desktop.
I have an Apple Wireless Keyboards and have noticed a problem with it. So the wireless keyboard has the EXACT same layout as my MacBook keyboard, so I would assume it should function the same. You know how along the top there are lots of function buttons? Well none of those work like they should. Clicking any of the buttons from esc (very left) to the play/pause button doesn't do anything. From there, the forward button (>>) does what F3 should, the volume off button does something I'm not quite sure what it is the volume down button pushes everything off to the side of the screen (not sure what it's called ) and volume up opens my dashboard. So is this something completely wrong with my keyboard, or is it something weird that they all do that I don't know of?
My Apple Wireless Keyboard is haunted. It will randomly, in the middle of sentences, or sometimes after I haven't used in a few minutes, stop responding.
The really weird part? I open System Prefs, click Bluetooth, and viola! It works again. I don't have to do anything - just open the Bluetooth prefs. As soon as I do, everything I've typed since it went dead (usually just a word or two) is actually output into the search box in Systems Prefs.
There is no rhyme or reason to this weirdness. Sometimes it will literally happen a few times an hour for days (which drives me up the wall); sometimes it'll go months without doing it. When it's doing it a lot, no amount of rebooting/relogging-in fixes it. One thing I have not tried is using a fresh user account (or Guest), because it's so unpredictable... even on my own account it will take a break and work normally for a few hours, then go right back to freaking out.
The fact that it stores everything I type when it's "not working" is the really weird part. It's like the OS is receiving the data but just forgetting to process it until I poke it and remind it, "you have stuff coming in via Bluetooth, wake up and do something with it!"
my Apple wireless keyboard works fine in OS X Leopard but when I load up Windows Vista my Keyboard does not work. The mouse wasn't work for awhile either but I managed to pair it and now it works except for the keyboard. I can't get the keyboard to work under Windows Vista Ultimate 64 bit. I've gone into blue tooth settings and added the keyboard, hit properties, installed the drivers but it still won't work. I'm out of options and ready to just purchase a wired keyboard.
I have owned my MacBook Pro for about 3 years and just a couple of weeks ago the trackpad stopped working when I clicked on it. I can still use it by finger touch but I can no longer left or right click on it. I have been using a mouse for the past week so that I can right click.
Yesterday I had a Leopard software update which included new keyboard firmware. I did the update and the keyboard continued to function normally. This AM I booted my MacBook Pro and discovered the keyboard no longer responds to inputs. However, the MB does responds to an external USB keyboard.
Now I don't know if I have a sudden hardware problem or the MB keyboard is not working as a result of the firmware update. Has anyone else experienced a similar problem? Can I go back to the earlier revision of the keyboard firmware?
Hmmm - while writing this I just realized I have a bootable image of my system made a few week back on an external drive - I'll have to try it.
I was just wondering what all of your thoughts were regarding these two keyboards. I know I can't get the Wireless Pro new anymore, however I can get it used for $20 from someone I know.
The new aluminum one however, I can get for about $40 used or just buy a new one for $70. I'm looking to buy a used one so it's pretty much the Wireless Pro for $20 vs the Wireless Aluminum for $40.
This will be going towards a set-up with my MBP which will be on an mstand, with an external monitor. I've already gotten the Magic Mouse so I'm trying to find a nice Bluetooth keyboard to compliment it.
i am running awin7 in bootcamp. in this bootcamp i am using outlook 2010. i cannot create an "@" in emails. is there any shortcut to create an @? is there any combination to create the windows "alt gr" on the macbook air keyboard?
A few hours ago the wireless internet on my laptop stopped working. I have turned it off and on again, i have turned our wireless internet off and on again. I have also tested the internet on the other computers in the house (macs and pcs) and it works on all of them. I thought it might somehow be the distance so i've tried using it next to the internet box, still to no avail.
I took the laptop downstairs, came back up and when i sat back down, the internet stopped working on it. I didn't bash it about and i'm always very careful when carrying it around the place. Everything else still works on it.
It is displaying the wifi in the top right with the bars dimmed out and an exlamation mark in front. When i click it, under 'AirPort: On' it says 'Alert: No Internet Connection' and next to it is a triangle with an exclamation mark inside.
I used to be able to sync my iOS devices wirelessly with iTunes.Â A version or two back, that stopped working.Â I now have v11.2.2 (3) under OS X 10.9.3..I have tried unchecking, quitting and restarting and rechecking 'sync wirelessly' for each device.Â Â
The devices often appear in the leftmost panel when I start iTunes but selecting them causes a progress bar to appear and after 30 secs disappear and the device name is dropped from the list. This worked reliably for many years but stopped some months back after an iTunes update.
I went on vacation for 1 month and when I came back my mac wouldn't charge! In the corner it would say "Not Charging" and and the battery lights do not turn on when I press the button on the battery itself. The mac only works when I have it plugged in. Do I need a new battery? It's a 13" white macbook, about 2.5 years old. It has the Intel processor but not the Core2Duo.
I have just added a new, larger internal hard drive and carbon copy cloned everything on my old HD to this new one. It seemed like everything was ok, but at some point ALL my key commands stopped working: com-q, com-i, all the keyboard shortcuts in my applications and in finder.Â
I am here today looking for guidance with my ibook. I recently updated the software from 10.3 to 10.4. The wireless was working fine on 10.3. Then when I upgraded it it just stopped working. Now it says there is no airport card installed. I need to fix it because I need it for school!
My Wireless mac keypad has stopped properly working. The keys sometime do not correspond to the result, or a a simultaneous duel actio, for example when the delete button is pressed the. Ursor does go backwards, but it also turns the sound up. The keyboard is properly connected to the computer, and the battery life is up in the nineties.Â
NO issues until this morning.Â Put computer to sleep and it would not boot back up properly (stuck on Apple boot screen and it FINALLY came on after many tries).Â Now my wifi or ethernet won't actually "connect" to the internet.Â It says connected under network preferences and it's green, but I have no internet connection...Â
Recently my macbook pro battery stopped working, i took it to the apple service and battery has to be replaced which they will do so soon. They told me i can still use it on the power cord. However when i started it up the screen has a spinning wheel and a loading bar underneath the apple logo, which it never had before, and when the bar is 1/3 done the computer just shuts down every single time at the exact same place. Â
Today I was working with some work and put my laptop to sleep by shutting the lid. Less than half an hour later I opened it and the keyboard and trackpad were both unresponsive. I tried everything but nothing worked so I shutdown the computer by holding the power button down. I then restarted it and they still wouldn't work so I was unable to login. I have also tried an SMC reset but this was to no avail either.
