MacBook :: Icon On The F5 And F6 Keys Represent Toggling Of The Illuminated Keyboard?

Apr 7, 2009

I`ve never used the unibody macbooks before and i`m curious about the illuminated keyboard:

1. Do the icon on the F5 and F6 keys represent toggling of the illuminated keyboard? if so, is it simply on and off, or can you turn up the light like you can turn up brightness of the screen?

2. What color is the light for the illuminated keyboard? is it white or is it bluish white? i`ve seen images of both but can`t figure out what it is.

MacBook Pro :: Illuminated Keyboard Stopped Working / Not Producing Visual Feedback On Screen

May 9, 2008

suddenly, my MBP (2.6ghz, 15") illuminated keyboard has stopped working. out of the blue. same conditions in the room as when it's worked before - so it's not an ambient lighting problem. the functionality is all turned on, and pressing the dim/brighten keys on the keyboard, while producing visual feedback on the screen (like the volume indicator), produces no illumination on the keyboard. im plugged in, fully charged... can't figure it out!!!

to be honest, i never really use the keyboard illumination, but now that its actually not working, its really bothering

OS X :: Illuminated Keyboard - Levels Won't Move

Aug 21, 2009

Last night, I was having issues with the illuminated keyboard. It would flicker on and off, but when I restarted the machine, I had no issues. This morning I wake up and press the F6 key to brighten it up and see of its working, and the levels wont move at all, and all i get is the O with the through it. something I did possibly? Im in Greece right now, so its going to be hard to get it to an Apple store. The only time I will be able to do that is when my Aunt goes back to NY. She can take it there for me and ship it back.

Laptops :: Macbook 2.0Ghz Vs. Macbook 2.4Ghz (Illuminated Keyboard)?

Apr 10, 2009

I recently went out and got myself the 2Ghz macbook w/o the backlit keyboard. I suddenly realized how often i had used the backlit keyboard on my macbook pro 17" that i sold. I got the computer on April 8th and am still under the 14 day return period and was wondering if you guys thought that i could go to apple and return this model for the 2.4ghz model (extra $300)... and if it was worth it....

I recently spilled a protein shake over my mb pro. It spilled on the right side, but I quickly cleaned it with a wet tissue and dried it up. The problem, now, is that the illuminated keyboard isn't working..only a few random keys are working and the rest aren't..

What should I do? I have a 1 year warranty left, but I'm not sure it'll be covered.

This i dont think is serious and i am not sure what is causing the problem, basically my Alu macbook 2ghz' screen has started flicking, this has only started to happen since i installed 10.5.7 but only happens when my power adapter is in, it doesn't happen all the time but basically when i put my adapter in and the light isn't on then my screen starts to flicker.

It does stop flickering after i remove the charger and put it back in and then the light on it works.would you say its a problem with my screen/charger/something else?

MacBook :: Bottom Half Of Screen Flicking/flashing Lines?

Feb 8, 2012

my Mac started doing this a week ago. The bottom half of the screen flickers/flashes lines. If I leave it open on a flat surface and I touch the screen for a little bit, it'll go back to normal. When I close the laptop, put it in my case, and travel around with it, the next time I open it up it'll start flashing again.

Intel Mac :: Vertical "flicking" Lines On 27" Display?

Mar 20, 2012

These lines are 1cm apart one another, and are almost invisible, but their "flicking" it's really noticeable and quite annoying working as a graphic. It has less than 2 years but they say that the warranty it's over, even if by law it should be at least 2 years, it's obviously ah hardware problem, so I'm quite sure it's a display problem and probably should be replaced.

MacBook :: 2.4 Keyboard/Trackpad, - External Keyboard/Mouse Not Working

Nov 13, 2009

So my friend was using his MacBook and went to do something else. He came back and the screen was black, he hit space and nothing, tried the trackpad and nothing. He restarted by holding the Power button, and it go to the log-in screen, but he can't type anything, or use the trackpad. He has tired restarting several times and no luck. He also tried an external Keyboard/Mouse and that didn't work.

He did plug in a Flash drive and the light turned on, so the USB ports are at least getting power, but nothing is working.

PowerPC :: MacBook Keyboard Vs. PowerBook Keyboard?

Aug 14, 2006

I'm thinking of buying a MacBook but I have one reservation. I'm moving from a Powerbook 12"...

What's the consensus on the MacBook keyboard in terms of ease & comfort of use? I write for a living so a good keyboard is pretty essential. I've always been mostly satisfied with my powerbook keyboard, it's pretty comfortable although I occasionally mash a neighbouring button with my big clumsy fingers. The MacBook keyboard looks a little... weird. How is it?

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.

OS X :: Generic Usb Keyboard Disappearing / Coming Out Of Sleep Keyboard Is Unresponsive

Jan 5, 2010

I just got a generic usb keyboard to use with my mbp as schoolwork is taking its toll on the keys and I wouldn't mind preserving it a little better.

This keyboard is the dynex from bbuy that's labeled in windows crap but was cheap and works fine on the mac. Unfortunately, everytime the mbp comes out of sleep, the keyboard is unresponsive and i have to set it up again in settings.

Just hoping there's a simple fix and that it's not terminal

thanks in advance.

IMac :: Keyboard Usb Extension - Compatible Of Aluminum Keyboard?

Mar 11, 2009

My desk configuration for my imac includes a keyboard tray. I am contemplating just not using it, however it really does put the keyboard in a more natural place for me to sit correctly. If I want to use the wired keyboard though, I will obviously need some type of usb extension. I have read these came with the old keyboards, but they don't come with the new ones. Does anyone know where I can find one that is compatible with the aluminum keyboard? Would the extenders that came with the old Mac keyboards work (in case i can find one on ebay or something)?

Hardware :: Unable To Use A Wired Keyboard To Set Up A Wireless Keyboard

Apr 4, 2009

I've just bought a Mac mini to use as a media centre, and I picked up the Apple wireless keyboard and mouse while I was at it. It wasn't until I got home that I read the "requirements" section on the side of the mouse and keyboard boxes, where it states that an existing keyboard and mouse are needed for setup.

I have a USB mouse, but no keyboard (my other Mac is a MBP), and nowhere to borrow one from (all my friends have laptops).

MacBook Pro :: Replacing MacBook Pro JP Keyboard To EN Keyboard?

Nov 8, 2006

Anyone have any idea? I'm thinking of getting a refurb MBP here in Japan, but it comes with Japanese keyboard that I'm really not used to. Apple have MBPs with English keyboard only for new units, not refurbished.

So I'm thinking of buying the English keyboard from parts site on the net and replacing it myself. However, I'd like to know if there's any driver change or anything needed on Mac OS X?

In the System Preferences, I don't see any place I can set what type of physical keyboard layout I'm using. Please advise if you've any experience.

I alternate between French and English regularly when typing, but every time I have to go to System Preferences (or add an ugly flag that does not match the color-scheme to the status-bar) and change the language.
