MacBook :: Crooked Keys - LED Visible Below Letter E
May 30, 2009
I've seen threads for crooked keys before, but thats not necessarily my problem. It is related, right below the letter "E" you can very easily see the LED that lights the letter up. Its really annoying and is the only letter that has this problem. Is there someone to pull off the key and re-adjust it? Or should I just take it to the Apple store and explain it to them?
My two-year-old daughter was messing with the keyboard on my iMac, and now the keys on the keyboard are not functioning as they were before. The delete key doesn't work, "a" types a symbol-topped "a" followed by the copyright symbol, etc...
I've restores the factory settings to the function keys in system preferences, but the problem persists.
I have just installed a new HP6380 all in one for use with my iMac using OS X v.10.5.8. All seems to be working fine except scanning pdf's to preview. Everything looks fine in the scan preview but the finished results in Preview comes in about 20 degrees crooked cutting off the corners of the document. The same thing happens when I scan a pdf to desktop.
I currently have a HP PSC 1210 all-in-one that I purchased in about 2003. I'm pretty torn as to what brand of printer I should purchase. One thing that has always bothered me with my current printer is that whenever I print on paper thicker than standard 20 lb paper, it either goes in crooked, prints off center, or jams. Since I mainly use my home printer to print mailing labels and envelopes. I would prefer a printer which you load the paper in the top and it goes straight through, instead of in the bottom which takes the paper up and around. I like the print quality of Lexmark printers, but I refuse to buy a printer which forces me to change the ink cartridges. Are all Lexmark, Canon, and Brother printers like that? It's the reason why I've always purchased HP. I'm not in need of an all-in-one printer either, or one with a fax machine as I have a stand alone scanner and if I ever need to fax anything I just do it from work.
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.
Info: MacBook Pro (Retina, Mid 2012), OS X Yosemite (10.10.1)
I have a 2007 macbook. Whenever I try my email address or password, I hit the left shift key, it produces the letter R. When I hit the right shift key, it brings up a window with the widgets? Weather and other items.
I noticed that almost every letter has a red or blue tint on my external monitor, like behind it, as a shadow. I am connected to dvi. If I use the dvi to vga converter. It gets reduced. I even tried on a new dell monitor and it does the same thing! Is this normal? Could it be my videocard that is beginning to be defective?
I've been using itunes for a while and it just messed my entire music library up! I've found something that is more Winamp style for me named "Cog". Now my problem is that I want to control it with the F7, F8, F9 keys which are the rewind, play and forward keys, but when pressing any of them it works both on itunes and cog player. How can I disable the Itunes link to it? I want it to control only Cog player.
I'm using the thin aluminum USB external keyboard and suddenly my 8ik, diagonal of keys stopped working (now I'm using my laptop keyboard). Anyone know if this is typically a sign of a broken keyboard, or a user issue?
I am running Quark 9 on a MacBook Pro using Lion and just noticed that after an update my tool bar and measurements bar are not showing up. The box opens up for the tools but you can't see anything in the box it's just grey. Same with the measurements. I've restarted the computer a few time, but no luck.
I have a MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2012), 2.5 GHz Intel Core i5, 4 GB 1600 MHz DDR3, Intel HD Graphics 4000 1024 MB.
Running 10.10 Yosemite. Have not had trouble until this morning. Was working in mail and suddenly I could no longer see any emails.I closed out of mail & opened it again, that did not work. Turned off the computer. No luck. It still shows that I have emails and I can even send & receive emails. I just can not see them.

For a while now I've been really frustrated by the fact that my BootCamp drive seems to have disappeared from the desktop, and is not mountable from within Disk Utility. I am running a fresh install of OSX Snow Leopard, as well as a new BootCamp install with Windows 7.
A friend of mine who bought her first Mac asked me to check her Macbook Pro and fix the wifi problem. It's a second hand, previous generation 13" MBP with 2.54 GHz C2D processor. I checked Networking menu under System Preferences and couldn't find the Airport. Even when I tried to add a new connection, the drop down menu didn't give me the option for Airport. Finally, I checked "about this Mac" page. Airport was listed there but only as software. I am not a technician or an engineer but I can see that there is a hardware problem and she should take the computer to Genius Bar.
I have mbp, OSX 10.7.4. Had to do a restore. Now my springboard icons are invisible. There is a space on the dock where it is, and the discription of what it is, is there, but the icon is invisible. Only a space, which, by the way, will work to to launch me to where it is suppose to. Just can't see it. I tried repair permissions, redownloading lion, and removing "invisible icons" and putting them back. But still the same thing.
My supervisor wrote me a last minute letter of recommendation and emailed it late last night. I would like to bring this letter in today at 11am... 2hours. I cant open it. I even downloaded a pages converter that I found but it only works with Mac. Is there anyway someone can read this in time and send me a document that I am able to print out on my pc?
