MacBook Pro :: Delete And Arrow Keys Stopped Working Properly

Apr 13, 2012

I can't backspace anymore. And just now, as I type this, I noticed if I press delete I -forward- delete, and I can still highlight text and delete it that way. How do I change the delete key to backspace? Also, my arrow keys used to move the cursor within text. now it just scrolls the page up and down.

MacBook Pro :: Delete And Arrow Keys Stopped Working

Aug 29, 2009

I spilled some water on my laptop this morning but it wasn't a lot and seemingly nothing happened. Then several hours later all of the sudden my delete key and arrow keys are not working. I can only assume this has something to do with the spill. My MacBook Pro is over 2 years old and I'm pretty sure the warranty is long expired. I definitely can't afford a new one or expensive repairs. Is there anyway to change the function of my keys? In other words can I change say one of my shifts or command keys into a new delete key ?

MacBook Pro :: Arrow Keys Not Working?

May 26, 2010

The LEFT and DOWN directional arrows on my Mother's MBP just stopped working. All other keys work fine. Does this generally mean I will need to replace the top case? Has anyone out there experienced keys not working, then working again? Could it possibly be the connection to the logic board? Or some dust in an undesired location?

MacBook Pro :: Brightness Keys Have Stopped Working?

Sep 12, 2009

I have a MBP with an apple wireless keyboard. The keyboard has brightness keys on it but they have recently stopped working. It is strange as the keys on the MBP still work but the ones on the bluetooth keyboard, placed exactly in the same spot (the wireless KB and the Macbook pro's KB are exactly the same), don't.

MacBook :: OS X Mavericks (10.9.3) Delete Key Is Not Working Properly

Aug 30, 2014

I have a late 2010 MacBook Air that is running OS X 10.9.3 .

Lately I have noticed that my delete key is now working as a backspace key.

This is super annoying and I have tried googling the problem, but I haven't found a solution yet.

Also, my top row of keys (volume, brightness, etc,) are not working unless I hold down the fn key.

Mac Pro :: Audio Line-in Port Stopped Working Properly

Feb 22, 2012

I started to have a perplexing problem that I narrowed down to the audio in-put port on my Mac Pro (MacPro3 ,1). It was working fine then the sound level increased and the quality became distorted (like a "fuzz base" but affecting all sounds)I was in the process of digitizing records, and believed the record played broke. So I got a new record player (audio-technica AT-LP120-USB). The same thing occurred with the audio in-put port, so I switched to the USB port and the audio was fine. I also checked with music already on my HD and it played fine. Consequently it has to be the in-put line port and/or a software issue.

Is there anyway to remove these keys to try to clean them? This is the current generation Macbook.

Mac Mini :: Cursor/arrow Keys Not Moving?

Jun 24, 2012

I am having problems with my cursor on my macbook. Since a recent software  update I've not been able to move the cursor in any app. The  only way it moves is when I type. I use the arrow-keys to quickly move around menus but that is impossible. I have looked at all the settings I can think of looking at, but nothing makes any difference. Helen BTW the OS is 10.6.8

ITunes :: Cannot Unselect Search Field By Pressing Arrow Or Tab Keys

May 18, 2012

Very often I need to search a single track in an album and then I start my browsing just from that point, using the arrow keys. i.e. I did like this: select the search filed, type the keywords, select the track, empty the search field, press twice the tab key (one to activate the left column, the second one to activate the tracklist), in order to activate the selection I made and, eventually, use the arrow keys to browse the collection. Since some time ago, once that I've done my search, when I press the tab key, it activate the left column and then the tracklist, but it do not unselect the search field and so, if I use the arrow keys, the menu of the search field appears and there's no way to leave unselected the field.

MacBook Pro :: Keys Won't Press Down Properly

May 30, 2012

I've been using my MacBook Pro for about 9 months now (and I love it), but suddenly some keys (enter, f11, disc-eject-key) won't press down properly. It's like there's something underneath it, preventing it from going down. I could have spilled breadcrumbs or something like that on the keyboard, but only in really small amounts; I try to eat and drink as little as possible with my MacBook around, 'cause I'm always afraid of spilling something in- or onto it. how to get rid of it? The keys still work, but I just don't like it this way.

MacBook Pro :: Delete Text - Delete And Backspace Keys

Sep 12, 2007

How do I delete text. Let's say I wrote the wrong word, as you know a Windows keyboard has "Delete" and "Backspace" keys, but a MacBook keyboard only has a "Delete" key which acts like the "Backspace" key. So in order for me to delete on work I have to go behind the text and use it like backspace.. how do I just delete the word from the front?

MacBook :: Keys "a" And "delete" Not Working And Redirecting?

Oct 16, 2010

My Macbook is brand new but I have been having some trouble with the keyboard. Out of nowhere it seemed the keyboard started to act up. There is something wrong with both the "a" key and the delete button. They aren't working. They continuously redirect my initial strokes and cause my computer to be unresponsive. Some other icon always comes up instead of n "a" or the material being deleted. I did notice that I have that stupid Universal Access thing BUT I had gone ahead and turned off sticky and slow keys.
