Hardware :: Unable To Put Keys Back On Apple Keyboard

Sep 11, 2009

I have an aluminum wired apple keyboard and I'm trying to rearrange the keys to a Dvorak layout. Everything went fine except for 4 keys in the top row (the row right below the numbers). For some reason, I can't put 4 keys back in over there.

MacBook Air :: Keyboard A And Backspace Keys Fail And Come Back At The Same Time

Dec 11, 2014

I have a Macbook Air, it's 18 months old, and the keyboard is sporadically fail. I see no pattern. The A and Backspace keys are the main two to go, they fail at the same time, and come back at the same time. 

System details:
1.7 GHz Intel Core i7
8GB RAM
Intel HD Graphics 5000 1536 MB
Serial: C02KVGZKF6T6 

I always keep the system up to date with software, I don't use illegal software, I can see no reason why this should be happening. I'm running Yosemite, latest updates always applied. 

Tempted to perform a clean install and see if that works. I'd book an appointment but with Christmas so close no shops are accepting bookings and the phone proved useless. 

Just thought I should test with an external keyboard to see if that also has the same issue. I'll do that.

Info:
MacBook Air, OS X Yosemite (10.10.1)

MacBook :: Screen Start Working After Back Cover Removed

Aug 21, 2010

Macbook screen went black even though the mac booted up properly - from the startup sounds. I took the back cover off and checked the power connector - it looked just slightly angled out so it probably was getting intermittent power [over last 2 weeks it would come on and but sometimes not until it died completely today]. Anyway, once I took the back cover off from the back [above the battery] and made sure the connector was secure it worked fine now. Might be a good tip for someone vs the time to go to the apple store.

OS X :: Keyboard Stopped Working / Restore Back To Earlier Version Of Keyboard Firmware?

Feb 28, 2008

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.

The a, q, w and z keys on my keyboard have all swapped around (not physically, but when I press 'q' an 'a' is typed etc), none of the numbers and punctuation keys are in the right places either and I have no idea why.

Does anyone know how to fix this (sorry, I can't find where question mark has gone)

I'm running an Intel imac with OS X version 10.5.6

MacBook Pro :: Keys Suddenly Changed - How Can I Change Them Back

Jan 10, 2011

I have no idea what happened but somehow the function of some of the keys on the top row on my Macbook Pro keyboard changed. For instance the dashboard key does nothing while the F12 key now shows the dashboard, F11 shows the desktop while F9 does what F3 did before etc.

I'm certain no fluids were spilt on the keys.

After I restarted and tried to change them back to the default function in the system preferences window, nothing happened.

How can I restore the defaults?

MacBook Pro :: Glass Keyboard Keys

Dec 23, 2010

What do you think? IMO it would be a nice subtle aesthetic change from the plastic EVERY keyboard has for the keys. They wouldn't be translucent either, black glass like the casing if iPhone 4.

OS X :: Mac Keyboard F-keys And Windows Through Bootcamp?

Dec 13, 2007

I tend to use alot of my F-keys in Windows through bootcamp, but certain F-keys with secondary functions on the mac keyboard such as changing the brightness or volume up and down (as an example), keep functioning when I press them.

I did shut off the secondary F-key functions in the Mac system preferences, hoping it would stay inactive when I'm in Windows. Unfortunately they still turn my brightness up and down when, let's say, I hit the F1 or F2 keys in Windows.

Does anybody know any way to shut this off in Windows? Does it have to do with any drivers installed?

OS X :: Keyboard Shortcuts And Broken Keys

Mar 2, 2009

Someone spilled something on my delete key and it was pretty sticky so I decided to take it out and clean it. After a few minutes of picking the key to get it out, it relinquished itself and I wiped it off. I then put it back on and now it simply doesn't work when I press it. Am I going to have to go to the professionals to fix it? I later did the same to my Volume Up key to see how I may have screwed up the delete key and it inevitably messed up as well. For a short time my trackpad wouldn't tap when I tapped it so I had to go into the system preferences and turn off the function of the trackpad ignoring accidental taps on the keyboard or something for it to work, so my delete key must currently be pushed down but not functioning correctly (I don't know). Then I somehow crewed up my keyboard shortcuts and now some functions work while others do nothing. On word I can use the shortcuts to save and underline, but can't use them to bold and undo. I use the latter more than the former and I don't have a clue as to why this has happened.

OS X :: Keyboard USB Plugs Works But Not Keys

Aug 18, 2009

I have a keyboard with two usb plugs in the back. I use one for my mouse, then run the keyboard's connection into my computer. The mouse works fine but the keys don't work at all [I'm using keyboard viewer to type now]. I plugged my 60gb external hard drive into it a few times this week, could that have something to do with it. I just plugged my keyboard in and it 'pushed buttons' on it's own. it held down the command keys, arrow keys, f12, etc.

OS X :: Keyboard Function Keys Messed Up

Dec 14, 2009

all the normal keys on my mac keyboard worked fine on friday when at work and i come in today and they are all messed up. how do i get them back to there defaults? Example, f12 now goes to the desktop instead of actually increasing the volume and f11 is the dashboard instead of decreasing the volume, etc. I am not sure if an update or something got installed or what. I have tried going into keyboard under system preferences and restoring defaults but that didn't work. I also tried powering the keyboard off and on and still a no go. I am using the bluetooth keyboard and running snow leapord.

OS X :: Changing Keyboard Shortcuts (Fn Keys)

May 22, 2010

I have one of the new Macbook Pros. The F4 key has a little picture of the dashboard on it, hit that key and the dashboard pops up. I don't use dashboard enough to have it warrant its own key. So I don't want that, I want what I had on my iBook - I hit one of the function keys and Expose shows me the open windows for the application I'm in. I think fine, I'll just repurpose the F4 key. So into keyboard>keyboard shortcuts in system preferences, double click the Expose shortcut for Application Windows and make it F4.

The Dashboard still pops up for F4. Go into the keyboard tab and check the box that reads: "use all F1 F2 etc keys as standard function keys" and tada, the F4 key now does what I want. But obviously the volume keys etc now don't. So I thought I'd just go into keyboard shortcuts and set all the shortcuts to match the pictures on the keys. But I can't find most of them. I've got to be missing a trick - I know if I uncheck that function keys box again I can make expose pop up by holding fn and F4 but I don't want that, I just want F4 to bring up expose instead of the dashboard while the rest of the function keys do what Apple designed them to.

MacBook Pro :: Keyboard Types Two Keys At Once?

Aug 2, 2010

So a few days ago I spilt tea on my MBP. When I opened it back up everything seemed to be in working condition, however a few of my keys were sticky. So, yesterday I took them off and started cleaning. That's when things went down hill.

Now, my keyboard will type two letters at the same time. For example, when I press "r" it will type "ry". It does this for the whole row. The Dashboard key brightens the screen and brings up the dashboard. 4 types 46. f types fh. v types vn. And space doesn't space.

MacBook :: Keyboard Isn't Working - Some Keys Don't Do Anything At All?

Feb 21, 2012

My cat slept on my MacBook last night and now the keyboard isn't working properly ... Some keys don't do anything at all and some keys do things they shouldn't... Any clues on how to fix this? I called the apple support line and we don't think it was anything to do with the settings in 'universal settings'. I'm not sure what else to do and this is one time I do wish I had a man in the house?! Or at least someone else who has half a clue! I rely haven't had many problems with my MacBook 'till now. I'm operating on Mac os x 10.6.8 Also, 2 cats free to good home. Or anyhome, it doesn't even need to be 'good'!

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.8), Late 2008 macbook
