IMac Intel :: Top Row Of Keyboard Not Working After Snow Leopard


Just updated from tiger to snow leopard, now the top row keys (using 2 different keyboards that work ok on other macs correctly) do not work correctly:

Speaker up vol key: starts dashboard

Speaker down vol key: all windows hide

Speaker on/off: shows dock

F3: should "show all windows"--does nothing

The rest I am not able to verify except for esc which works OK

ALL of the keyboard sys prefs have been explored, no change in operation.

Mac Bluetooth :: Wireless Keyboard Top Row Keys Are Not Working?
I bought this wireless short and tiny apple keyboard from ebay. Everything seems to work properly, except the volume keys, like f10, f11. f12, and it seems the the whole front row f functions are all messed up. How do I control it? another thing there is no home button on this short keyboard, is that suppose to be hidden under some other key?

Intel Mac :: Get A New Keyboard And Now The Keys In The Upper Row Are Not Working?
My keyboard stopped working so I went to the apple store to replace it with another one. Now I am back home and the keys at the very top are not working correctly (volumn  F12 shows the dashboard, F11 takes the screen up and away, F8 pause button shows spaces, etc.). What should I do to correct this problem - I assume I probably need to download some type of softwear but what? I have a Mac OS X  Version 10.5.8 desktop - 2.66 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor.

Mac Bluetooth :: Top Row Keys Aren't Functioning Properly On BT Keyboard
I have an iMac with Snow Leopard 10.6.3 and am using the wireless Bluetooth Keyboard and the F1 through F9 keys are no longer performing their printed functions (Brightness, Dashboard, Play/Pause, etc.) However the F10, F11 & F12 keys all do what's printed on them (mute/unmute, vol down, vol up)

I tried to install the updates for it from here: [URL]

The 2009 Aluminum Keyboard Firmware Update 1.0 couldn't detect my keyboard and the Aluminum Keyboard Firmware Update 1.1 gave me a message saying that the keyboard doesn't need the update.

I've tried deleting my bluetooth plist file and that didn't help. Also I do not have the button for using the F1, F2, etc as standard function keys checked.

MacBook Pro :: Middle Row Of Keyboard Not Working
I had a spill a couple weeks back that rendered my keyboard too sticky to use. I ordered a new top plate and keyboard, deciding to replace the whole thing rather than try to clean it all out. I've installed the new items, and everything works great, except for the middle row letter keys (A,S,D,F,G,H,J,K,L) and the left "alt/option" key. On the old keyboard these keys all worked fine (even after the spill), so I don't think it's hardware damage. I've tried resetting the PRAM and VRAM, but that didn't help either.

MacBook Pro :: 5TGB Row Not Working On New Keyboard Also
I have a Macbook Pro 15" 2.4 GHz, 3 GB 667, running 10.6.2. Last week my keyboard started acting up, the first thing to go was the "M" key, the key would "work when it wanted to" so to say. This was a little frustrating, but it would come around after typing around the key (on the keys near the M) and I could complete my work. Just one day later the "T" key started to act up at the same time, and shortly after that the entire 5tgb row was working "on and off". I bought a replacement keyboard and carefully installed the keyboard. For 2 days the keyboard worked without a hitch, but now my problem is back, the M key no longer has any issues, however the 5tgb row is starting to work less and less. I want to think this is some sort of connection issue from what I am reading, however it is a "heat" issue as well.

The keyboard will work fine for the first 10 min the computer is on, and then it slowly starts to fade away on me working "on and off" or as it wants to. I have read as much as I could on the internet, however most people I found with problems were due to spilling etc. I have not spilled any liquid on the machine. One thing that I will note is that the motherboard was replaces about 4 months ago by a company that I have had very good luck with, iresq, they had the board replaced because the problem was a known issue with something in the machine, I didn't ask many questions because they got it done for the cost of shipping. Does anyone have any suggestions or has anyone got any idea's for what to test or replace on the machine to get it working correctly? I am at a loss as if it is a connection issue I would believe the mother board would have to be tampered with.

IMac Intel :: Keyboard Not Working / Bluetooth Set-up Assistant Trying To Locate Keyboard
I have just turned on my iMac to find the Bluetooth Set-up Assistant trying to "locate a keyboard" even though there is one plugged in and was working perfectly fine when I last shut down. I have tried all 3 USB ports at rear of iMac and the keyboard is still not recognised but the mouse works. I am currently using a keyboard from an older Mac that works fine so is there anything I can do to get the computer to accept the new keyboard again?

MacBook Pro :: Top Row Keys Stop Working / Apps Stop Launching / Can't Sleep Or Shut Down
My MBP has this issue every once in a while where I have to hold the power button and force shut down. Randomly the volume keys/brightness etc. stop working and i can't open apps or shut it down normally. Everything still works though (can still function in open applications) Anyone know what the problem is? It fixes when I force reset.

Intel Mac :: Wired Aluminum Keyboard Not Working Running Snow Leopard
I bought an iMac on dec, 2010 it came with snow leopard and a wired aluminum keyboard, everything was good until dec, 2011 when my keyboard suddenly stopped working, I took it to an apple store and they replaced it, everything was fine until last month when my new keyboard stopped working again.

I have an old macbook (1st gen of intel-based macbooks) and if I connect the keyboard to that macbook it works just fine, I have checked and all the USB ports on my iMac and they work but when I connect the keyboard it just doesn't recognizes it as a keyboard (or as anything because it doesn't show on system profiler). I have connected another keyboard I own (a logitech wireless one) and the imac recognizes it, I don't know what to do.

Btw, if I disconnect the keyboard for a day or two it works again when I connect it to the iMac, also If I use the USB ports attached to the keyboard I get an error that the USB is taking too much power and it shuts down (and then the keyboard stops working again on the iMac)

IMac Intel :: New 21.5 IMac-bluetooth Keyboard And Magic Mouse Are Not Working
The first symptom of a problem was that in the initial startup of the system. I had turned on the keyboard and mouse as the book says and the machine just hung looking for the mouse. One in a while it will find the keyboard OR the mouse but never both together and it takes way too long when it does. I cannot truly remove these devices in bluetooth prefs. I turn off bluetooth and the devices and even removed them from the list but when bluetooth comes back on they are repopulated there. Any idea how to start from scratch on this? I created a new user to no avail and replaced the batteries in both devices.

Strangely, some of the keys have switched functions: expose opens a search bar, keyboard dimmer refreshes the webpage, keyboard brighter selects the web address, play/pause is now shows Spaces, skip forward is expose, and sound increase is dashboard. I reset my keyboard, but nothing changed.

IMac Intel :: Keyboard Stop Working After 30 Seconds Of Use
I just got my 20" aluminum iMac today and I just restored a time machine backup at startup from my 17" 1.83 (white) iMac. The keyboard will stop working after about 30 seconds of use then I will have to unplug it from the USB port and plug it back in. Again, it will only work for about 30 seconds. The mouse light stayed on but also didn't work. I then plugged the mouse into its own port and it works fine but the keyboard is still having the issue. I am currently typing on my white keyboard from my last iMac which is working in the new computer so my guess is it's a keyboard error. What can I do to get the this aluminum one working?

IMac Intel :: Keyboard Not Working In Different User Accounts?
I am having a wonderful fault that appears only on one user account on my mac. The keyboard does not work only when my son is logged onto his account. It works for all other accounts on the mac (mine, my wife's and the guest account). I can only assume that my son has changed something in his account that has disabled the keyboard, however I have no idea where to start looking. There is nothing obvious in system prefences

Does anyone know what he has done and is there a way to fix it without deleting his account?

IMac Intel :: New Keyboard - Function Keys Not Working
Basically, subject line says it all: the functionality keys at the top of the keyboard that have special functions such as brightness control, dashboard, pausing songs, volume control, etc., are not working with my 3 year old iMac. They work perfectly with my new unibody MacBook, so I am going to go out on a limb here and assume that this keyboard isn't compatible with Tiger. (10.4) I can't seem to find an answer confirming this. I've tried the keyboard software update that says specifically version 10.4 on it, yet no dice. I've tried checking and unchecking the function box in the keyboard settings. I don't really know what else to do. Is there no way to make these keys work, or am I going to have to update my operating system just so my keyboard can do basic functions with my iMac.

IMac Intel :: Mouse And Keyboard Not Working After Apple Update
I just updated my iMac by hitting the Update button in the left upper screen. After collecting 98.1 Mb of Update-tools I had to restart my iMac. During shutdown it installed the components, as normal. Once restarted, it brought me back to the home screen, where everything looked normal. Problem is, that the iMac doesn't respond to my mouse and keyboard anymore. Cursor is left of the apple in the left upper screen and doesn't move an inch. I discovered during a couple of restarts, that immediately as the apple appears in the white screen, that Caps Lock modus is switched on. I am not able to switch it off. Please don t tell me to use my OS Tiger cd's .. because I later installed proper Leopard version, but these cd's are not with me at this moment.

The picture on the key indicates it should adjust the volume.Can anyone tell me how to get the functions on the "F" keys to match their pictures?

IMac Intel :: Some Keys Not Working Apple Wireless Keyboard
I bought my iMac 21.5" during the first quarter of 2010. Just a few days ago the wireless keyboard that came with the iMac started acting weird. The lower part of the alphabet "z, x, c ..." (whole row) is not responding, along with the left command button. The keyboard did not experience any accidents nor dropped, it just happened. What's more strange is if I don't use the keyboard for a day or 2, it just returns to normal. I tried everything, like changing batteries using it on another machine, but still couldn't figure out whats happening.

IMac Intel :: Mouse Keyboard Not Working So Can't Sign On?
The morning after the strike I noticed a message when I got to the start up screen but actually didn't pay attention to it. When I tried to sign in I noticed the mouse didn't work, same with the keyboard.

So I tried powering it off and on, next time I didn't get the message but the mouse and keyboard aren't responsive, all I get is the sign on screen showing the different people who use the Mac. (Have tried changing the batteries, that made no difference)

It's a 4 year old iMac (still running OS x 10.4.7 -never did upgrade I'm afraid)

Am really worried as I don't have anythign backed up (foolish I know)

IMac Intel :: Bluetooth Keyboard And Magic Mouse - Not Working!
For some reason, the keyboard and magic mouse are not working. The iMac was recently bought, late 2010, and came with the Keyboard and Mouse. Both connected via bluetooth and worked just fine until today. The mouse, although paired, is not connected. The keyboard, paired and connected, isn't working at all. And I'm positive that their battery levels are +70%.

Any ideas?

IMac Intel :: Bluetooth Keyboard Brightness Controls Stopped Working?
I've got a 27" iMac 3.06 GHz with bluetooth aluminum keyboard (2-battery version) and Magic Mouse/Mighty Mouse, depending on whether my fingers are hurting or not. It's running OS 10.6.2, and Win 7 in an 80 GB Boot Camp partition. All Apple updates, including the two 27" iMac video firmware updates and the recent keyboard firmware update, have been applied.

The problem is that the brightness controls on the keyboard do not work when booted into Snow Leopard; they do work when booted into Win 7 (they worked with Boot Camp 3.0 and still work after the BC 3.1 update). The same holds true for a first-gen aluminum keyboard (3-battery version) as well as a USB aluminum keyboard. All keyboards are the "shorty" versions. The brightness controls on all three also do not work when I'm booted into a Snow Leopard "Test" user account with administrator privileges.

When I'm booted into a clone of the iMac's hard drive on an external hard drive, the brightness controls work. That clone is dated Jan. 30. But a second clone on yet another external hard drive, dated Feb. 20, does not let the brightness controls work. Something, obviously, happened between Jan. 30 and Feb. 20. All I can think is that there was a keyboard firmware update for the 2-battery version that I applied in the last week, as well as a second iMac 27" video firmware update earlier this month.

In my attempts to get the brightness controls to work again, and to resolve a problem caused by the recent 27" iMac video firmware update that apparently broke the ability of Win 7 to boot, I wiped the iMac's hard drive and did a clean install of 10.6.1 from the system disk, then installed all Apple updates. I did not import any of my data from Time Machine. The brightness controls were working. I used Migration Assistant to import all of my data, apps, settings, etc. and upon restart the brightness controls no longer worked.

I got exactly the same results when I wiped the hard drive, reinstalled Snow Leopard 10.6.1 and restored all my personal data, etc. using Time Machine during the post-install setup process.

(As an aside, it was a bear to reinstall Win 7, which installed very easily last November before the iMac 27" video firmware updates. Apple issued a special "iMac Late 2009 Win 7 Drivers" (bluetooth and ATI video) folder in late January that has to be placed on a FAT USB thumb drive during the Win 7 install to let people see the final setup screens. When that didn't work for me, I installed an Acer LCD with DVI as a video mirror. Without the Acer, which had video when the iMac didn't, I was able to see what was going on and enter the commands necessary to complete the install. That video update really messed up what was a very smooth dual-boot setup.

I've gone into System Preferences>Language & Text and followed troubleshooting tips here by setting up the Keyboard Viewer: [URL] All this did was to confirm that the keyboard brightness increase and decrease buttons (F1 and F2) did not work -- on all three keyboards. When I changed Keyboard preferences to set all preference keys as standard F1, F2, etc. keys, the keys showed they were working in Keyboard Viewer, but the brightness control window didn't show up on-screen.

I've Googled, Apple Discussioned and otherwise run out of clues and answers. Something obviously got munged and it's probably something like a plist. My suspicion is that the latest iMac 27" firmware update is the culprit, but I find that hard to believe. It would seem the iMac 27" bluetooth keyboard firmware update is the culprit, but that was only applied to that keyboard, not to the other two aluminum keyboards I'm using for tests. Interestingly enough, though, when I boot the iMac from the external clone that does permit the brightness keys to work, Software Update says there's a keyboard firmware update needed, even though it's already been applied (I watched the green light flash, etc. myself.) So perhaps that update is what's behind this problem.

There's no other way to adjust brightness on the iMac, and booting into Win 7 to adjust brightness, then back into Snow Leopard, isn't a, um, bright way to do it.

IMac Intel :: Keys Y, H And N Stopped Working On Wired Aluminum Keyboard?
The "Y" "H" and "N" suddenly stopped working on my wife's wired, aluminum, iMac keyboard which is about 2.5 years old. She typed an e-mail and the keys worked--she then started a Word Doc and the keys would not respond. There were no spills, but it has been very humid here for two months here in Athens GA. The machine is covered by Apple Care which, I think would, replace the keyboard, but is there any home remedy to try before taking to the local Apple store?

IMac Intel :: Core Duo Keyboard Stops Working Intermittently
About every 10 minutes or so, maybe longer, my iMac's keyboard stops working completely. The list shown below are additional items that I have tried or is a side-effect to the keyboard issue: The problem occurs on more than one keyboard, therefore, it doesn't seem to be a faulty keyboard issue The quick solution is to unplug the keyboard from the back of my iMac and plug it in again. Then the keyboard resumes its normal operation. However, on some occasions, the unplug/plugin technique does not work. It that case, I have to do a hard power-down, wait 10 seconds, then turn the iMac on again. Normal keyboard operation is finally returned. The mouse will turn off, which is indicated by the light inside the mouse turning off If the mouse does turn off, I unplug it from the keyboard and plug it directly into the back of the iMac. The light inside the mouse comes back on, but the mouse cursor is unresponsive The iMac Intel Dual Core is about six years old.
