Intel Mac :: It Keeps Typing Letter 'V' Even When Keyboard Is Unplugged

Jun 16, 2012

I started having an issue with my iMac typing in the letter 'V' in any field, whether in a browser or in a window even after I've unplugged the keyboard. I've tried restarting several times, but it's getting worse to the point that I can't even type my password in b/c strings of the letter 'V' keep erroring out each field. The letter 'V' isn't stuck in the keyboard, my keyboard doesn't need to be cleaned, I've run a disk repair and no errors are coming up. I had to type this from a different computer otherwise the entire message would have had "v's" typed throughout!

Info:iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.4), I use a Wacom Intuos 3 tablet

MacBook Pro :: Keyboard Can't Write Letter B

Dec 9, 2014

My computer began to get some strange errors - It is my MacBook Pro Retina 15" Mid-2012.My keyboard can't write the letters "B" and the danish letter "Å", it the same for both small and capital letter (B/b and Å/å). 

But even though my keyboard won't write the two letters, it will still register the key is beefing push.when I sits and write this, it will change the text to bold - like turning the bold format on/off each time I push the B key. The same happens when I just push the left command key, so I can turn the bold text format on/off with my left command key. The right command key can't turn the bold format on/off, either only or with the "right cmd+b" - which for this forum should be the original short cut. 

Both of my command keys denies to accept some shortcut like "cmd+t" in Safari to make a new tab. But the "cmd+n" works fine. I have no problem with writing the letter "t" or the "n" in the url address line. What I have tried so far without any result:- Resetting of the system management controller (SMC)

- Updated to Yosemite so I now have OS X 10.10.1

- Of course tried to restart.

- Seen my language hasn't been changed from Danish.

IMac :: USB Keyboard Not Typing Letters

Apr 6, 2009

I've already tried basic methods of resolving this issue i.e. resetting and unplugging and replugging the keyboard and my keyboard still won't type letters or numbers. The only kind of response I get by typing the keys is the keyboard will performing shortcut commands like save and open, etc. without holding control or alt, it does it when I press the letter keys by themselves.

MacBook Pro :: Keyboard Intermittently Stops Typing?

Jun 4, 2014

I have a MacbookPro - it's just over a year old. I mostly use it for graphics, but lately I've been having trouble with the keyboard - it intermittently stops typing. This problem occurs across all programs in which I use the keyboard. If I leave it alone for a few minutes it will start typing again, but obviously this is very inconvenient.

MacBook Pro :: Typing On Keyboard Make Cursor Jump Around?

Jul 19, 2007

I just got this new 17" powerbook two months ago. Everything seemed fine until this past weekend when I tried to do some work on it. No matter the program, Word, Quark etc., whenever i go to type in sentences or paragraphs, suddenly the cursor will jump to another area of the paragraph. There seems to be no consistency and I can't figure the cause.

I checked all the preferences and that doesn't seem to change it.

Could I have a faulty keyboard? Has anyone else heard of this and know what to do.

Applications :: Virtual Keyboard, Voice Typing, Access

Feb 11, 2010

I have a friend that has a handicap daughter, and she has bluetooth on her wheel chair. She is able to pair the wheelchair with her moms MacBook. We need some help with a couple of things.

1) Is there a virtual onscreen keyboard like on windows that she can use on snow leopard?

2) Is there a built in voice program that can recognize her speech vs mousing to type everything.

3) If not can you recommend some software to accomplish this.

MacBook Pro :: Backlit Keyboard Doesn't Come Back On When Typing

Nov 30, 2014

I have a Macbook Pro 13in. It is not a retina. I just bought it from apple.  Anyway it works fine I just noticed one thing about the keyboard and I'm sort of new to macs.

OK so the backlight on the keyboard times out after 5 sec (that's what I have it set to) the thing is the light will come back on after it times out when you move the mouse or touch the trackpad, but not if you start typing.  I noticed that shift, fn, control, alt/options, and Fkeys will bring it back.  The peculiar thing though is that while I'm typing, that will keep the light on.  Soon as i stop for 5 sec won't just turn on if I start typing again, gotta hit one of those keys or touch the pad. 

I could just set the timer longer, but idk seems like a minor flaw.  Unfortunately I can kind of see that, however there does seem to be hotkeys.  Just as long as one could customize them, maybe add the entire keyboard.

MacBook Air :: Letter Wearing Through - Get Just "A" / Replace Full Keyboard?

Nov 27, 2009

I have had my MacBook Air for about 18 months. I've been using Macs since 1988 and absolutely love this machine. In the last two years I have used it for the usual stuff, surfing the Net, e-mailing, doing research, blogging, but most of all I have used it to write four novels, each about 400 pages in length. I use my machine at least five hours a day, sometimes sixteen to eighteen hours. This last week the surface of the "A" key has worn through under the cross stroke, showing some white. I'm not in any kind of panic about it. Certainly I have pushed on this key enough to warrant some wear. My question: If I want to replace this key, will I be able to get just the "A" or will I have to have the entire keyboard replaced?
