Mac Mini :: Ir Remote And Bluetooth Not Working / Result Of Bad Repair?

Sep 17, 2009

I have a late 2009 Mac mini that I bought in March. 2 weeks ago I tried to use an apple remote with it and it would not work. Apple change the IR board on the mini. After 10 days I picked my mini up from the apple store and I noticed 4 marks from when they opened the mini. Ripped aluminum gouge marks on the bottom of the case, the back of the case by USB port does not line up anymore. I brought it to there attention but did not make a big stink and left. I have open a few mini's before (not this one)and know how it is easy to mess up.

When I got home I tried to use my bluetooth devices and they would not work, I tried the magic mouse, track pad, KB. I called apple to trouble shoot and they said I have to bring it back in for repair after 20 minutes of trouble shooting.

OS X :: Aplle Menu Not Working/i Use Repair Also Not Working?

Jan 24, 2009

I am using OS X 10.3. The apple menu doesn't work (for the past few months). When I click on it it's highlighted but doesn't pull down. I can not quit applications even if I use keyboard shortcuts (I have to force quit).

I tried starting with "safe boot" and I ran "Verify & repair disk permissions" but it didn't fix it.
Any ideas?

Mac Mini :: How To Rip From A Remote Drive

Apr 12, 2012

I have some music on CD's I'd like to Rip to my itunes library. In my old Mac I'd pop it in the CD drive and hey presto. But with the Mini I have to share my wifes MacBook Pro to use CD's on the Mini. The only problem is that I cant seem to Rip from the shared drive. I could rip the music into her collection but I think I'll run into all sorts of problems moving it to the mini and then onto the iPhone and iPad. Any thoughts on how I can rip from a remote drive?

Mac mini, Mac OS X (10.7.3)

Software :: Apple Bluetooth Keyboard Stopped Working / Itunes Stopped Working

May 13, 2009

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...

Mac Mini :: Can't Seem To Find A Way To Pair Remote?

Jan 2, 2010

I've recently received my refurbished March 2009 Mac Mini. I want to use it as a media center and have an harmony remote that I would like to use to control it (mostly for boxee).My problem is that I can't seem to find a way to pair my remote with it. Let me explain.

So I launched Logitech Harmony Remote Software and added a new device, the Apple Mac Mini. I then updated my remote and finally updated my remote.Now, I have a macbook pro and a mac mini. Without pairing anything, I can effectively control the sound on my macbook pro, but not on my Mac Mini. Yes I've checked in the system pref in both machines, nothing is paired and I do not have a real apple remote.

If I use the pair function, it does pair with my macbook pro and keep controlling it and still does nothing on the mac mini (expected).If I unpair it then close my macbook pro and use the pair function near my mac mini, it still do not want to pair.My question is, aside from bringing it to the apple store to get it checked, is there a way to test if my IR port is working on my mac mini?

MacBook Air :: Remote Install Not Working?

Jan 26, 2009

Been lurking around the forum getting some good ideas. I recently picked up a Macbook Air Rev A 1.8/SSD (couldn't resist at current refurb prices).

Anyway great machine but for one thing - I am trying to do a clean install but the remote install is not working for me via wifi or ethernet.

I have connected my old macbook to my MBA and I can see the dvd install disk. I successfully go through the whole process of restarting the MBA (holding the option button), the startup disks appear and I can connect to my home wireless network, I select the dvd install disk and click on the arrow button and my MBA restarts. However, it then does one of two things - restarts and goes to the desktop or there is a kernel panic attack.

Basically I don't get to the next stage where you select your language and go on to partition the drive.

OS X :: Remote Login And Web Sharing Not Working?

Jun 6, 2009

I have both Remote Login and Web Sharing enabled on my Leopard Macbook. When I try to SSH to it (from the same network) it just hangs, without ever asking for a password. Web Sharing says it can't find the host, even from on the Macbook itself.

For the record, Screen Sharing and File Sharing are working fine.

Anyone have any ideas what might be wrong?

MacBook Pro :: Can't Get Apple Remote Working

May 16, 2010

I just bought a brand new MBP from the Apple Store today, 17" one. I had an iMac, and did a transfer via Firewire of all my stuff to the new MBP. I then wiped the iMac clean and reinstalled Snow Leopard and moved it to my parents house. However the Apple Remote I had with the iMac, which was paired with the iMac, will not work with the MBP at all. I tried going into System Prefs on the MBP and pairing the remote, no luck. I tried turning off the infrared receiver in the same settings pane, no luck. I tried popping out the battery of the remote and put it back in, no luck. I then tried my girlfriend's Apple Remote (which is paired with her MacBook 13"), no luck. I turned off the infrared receiver in her MacBook to make sure it wasn't interfering or whatever, still no luck. Neither Apple Remote will work with my brand new MBP. Does it have a broken infrared port u think?

MacBook Pro :: IPhone Remote Not Working?

May 17, 2010

I absolutely cannot get the iPhone remote app to work with itunes for whatever reason!it's driving me crazy never had any issues on my old macbook, its defo on the same wifi, i can ping it etc, I'm faily handy with OSX and the like as i'm a software developer, so I know it's not a firewall issue and the phone is on wifi.

it just doesn't pop up to let me enter the code in iTunes under devices when I'm trying to register the Phone with the machine,for the record the phone has been synced with the itunes library in question and I have clicked the forget all remotes button in iTunes prefs, and the 'look for iphone remotes' box is checked
so I've pretty much done everything bar uninstall itunes is that really necessary, is it worth deleting the itunes prefs file??

OS X Mavericks :: Remote Login Not Working

Jun 19, 2014

I'm attempting to log in to my MacBook remotely using ssh, and it isn't working. I've looked all over the internet for a solution, and I haven't found one, although iI think I've determined that other people are having this same problem after upgrading to Mavericks. I did recently upgrade this MacBook to Mavericks, but I never tried remotely logging in prior to upgrading, so I don't know if Mavericks is the problem in my case. 

I'm using a mid-2010 13-inch MacBook, which I've recently upgraded to OS 10.9.3. I have not set up a static IP address with my ISP. My firewall is currently disabled. I've gone to System Preferences -> Sharing, checked "Remote Login," and selected "Allow Access" for "All users". I then note the IP address listed, where it says "To log in to this computer remotely, type "ssh myusername@" (obviously, I made up that user name and IP address). 

If I then open up a terminal window on my local machine and type "ssh myusername@", I am indeed able to log in using my password. However, if I ssh out to a remote machine somewhere else, and then attempt to ssh back in again, it doesn't work. Specifically, I am prompted for a password, but when I type the correct password, I'm just prompted for a password again. So I type the correct password again. But then, without even so much as an "incorrect password" message, I'm booted right out for excessive failed login attempts. 

I notice that each time I check the "Remote Login" check box, which I believe starts the sshd daemon, that action generates four error messages in /var/log/system.log, all of which have this form: 

Jun 19 16:56:49 mymacname.local mDNSResponder[40]: mDNS_Register_internal: ERROR!! Tried to register AuthRecord [this part varies] that's already in the list

Mac Mini :: Creating FTP Server With Remote Access?

Aug 15, 2010

My goal is to by a mac mini that will run 24/7 it will be connected to about 5TB's of storage that will have all my personal data on it. My goal is to create an FTP server that will host all these files that I can access remotely and let friends and family access it. I pretty much have it all sorted out I just wanted to check with some people on here. To run it I will be using a program called PureFTPd to manage the server and I can create accounts and manage them all through this application. Does anyone have a better way for me to do this or an alternate application that is better, And also I have connected to my mac book pro remotely using the built in FTP feature and PureFTP so yer, Does anyone else have a better idea for me running a server?

Mac Mini :: Sharing Over Remote Disc (macbook)?

Apr 12, 2012

I have a Mac Mini (2011) and a MacBook (2006) I want to use my Microsoft Office for Mac 2004 CD on to my Mini using the Remote Disc option. I put the CD into my MacBook and click all the options and follow the instructions from the Apple Support 'MacBook Air, Mac Mini: How to use Remote Disc to share DVDs or CDs from a Mac or Windows-based computer' When I click Remote Disc on my Mini the MacBook shows up and when I click on that, the CD shows up but I can't open or copy the CD onto my Mini. I keep getting an error message which makes no sense.  

Incase it was my MacBook (2006) running Leopard was the problem and it being to far behind my Mac Mini running Lion I used my mums Windows Dell Laptop which runs Windows 7 and again, followed the instructions. Same thing, same error message, which I was expecting because I know how Mac hates to open .exe files.  

I don't know what to do to solve the problem, can it be solved? Is my MacBook and CDs just to old to copy and install on my Mac Mini, would a MacBook Pro 2010 and Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 solve the problem? I'd like to know before I save up and splash out any money. The error message says something like it's not supported even though we downloaded the updates the support thing suggested doing if we needed too and something about it can't read it because it's not there or you need to have it installed previously, well how could I have installed the on the Mini if CD it never had a CD drive, where else would I have got the programme from, I haven't found a downloadable version of Office Word or I'd have done that already, by the way, if you know where a full programme download is available?

MacBook Air :: Remote Disc Not Working With Dell 420?

Apr 6, 2009

remote disc has worked previously between my daughters MacBook and my MacBook air, so I was not expecting any problem with my Company supplied Dell 420.

The Dell has a remote disc drive, and I suspect this could have something to do with the situation, but would like to know if I am right.

Basically my Air has no problem detecting the Dell and as soon as I "ask to use", the dell will show the pop-up, and I can confirm or accept that my air is allowed to use the disc drive of the Dell.

MacBook Pro :: Headphone Jack No Longer Working After Repair

Jun 19, 2012

Recently I had a issue with my macbook pro so I had it repaired at the Apple Store(problem with the display). They replaced the logicboard(2nd time in 4 months) and the battery. Now after taking it hope and plugging in my external speakers into the headphone jack I get this weird thump sound. It happens twice and I'll watch the audio strength at the top right. Each time it goes from like it's working to a gray color as if it's not or locked. If I try to play something like music with the jack in my entire screen freezes and I have to restart my computer entirely for it to work.Btw there is no red light in the headphone jack. The last time I had the logic board replaced it was a sound problem.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.4), Just replaced the logicboard
