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 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.

OS X :: Controlling Music On Cog Player Via The F Keys / Disabling Itunes From The Keys

Oct 25, 2010

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.

MacBook Pro :: Clinks When Press Trackpad?

Jan 4, 2011

I have a new Macbook Pro 15' (MC372). Its a very nice computer, I'm just having some annoying sound when i click with my trackpad. From time to time I can hear some kind of metallic echo (on realase), it sounds like something is a bit loose, clinky/rattling/jingling sound. A bit like in an old mouse when you can hear the spring working.

I know many people complain about trackpad being noisy etc. but this is a bit different. Except for the proper click there is this second sound, when the trackpad is going back to its position after clicking. I had it checked by Apple and they replaced the trackpad - but it didnt help. I don't hear this sound on either of demo computers, so it can't really be normal. If replacing trackpad doesnt help then my guess is - its something else. But what can it be?

The rattling/clinky sound comes rather from the right side of the keyboard area. It sounds a bit like the sound that laptop makes when im putting it on a hard surface (the keyboard then rattles a bit).

I attach an mp3 - maybe it will help. It's a bit too amplified (its not that loud or strong normally) - but try to hear the sound that comes at the very end of each click.

MacBook :: Key Combination Must I Press To Enter The Backslash?

Apr 5, 2009

Yesterday I bought a MacBook white and I am really happy with it.

Anyway, I have a keyboard basic question:

My native language is Spanish and I use the Spanish ISO layout in my computer keyboards; anyway, my new macbook has an English keyboard and, though I changed the keyboard layout to be used as a Spanish one, I did not find a way to enter the backslash. The other characters [including � and accented vowels are working properly].

Do you know what key combination must I press to enter the backslash?

OS X :: I5 MacBook Pro - Press Caps Lock Key Several Times Before It Actually Comes On

Aug 4, 2010

So I got my Core i5 2.53 GHz MacBook Pro back in April when they came out, and it has had some problems. All the the issues have been minor, but still annoying. First of all, I get the scroll wheel all of the time. Way more than a new computer should. Also, I have to press the Caps Lock key several times before it actually comes on. In addition, often times when I open iTunes, it just bounces for a long time until I have no choice but to force quit. After a few attempts it opens, but I feel like it shouldn't do this. Also, when I put headphones in the head phone jack, they don't work right away. Either they don't work at all and I have to pull them out and try again, or it takes several seconds to come on. Again, these are minor issues, but I still don't like it.

MacBook :: Unibody - Won't Start When Press Power Button

Jun 13, 2010

my brother is having a problem with his unibody MacBook that he bought just a few months ago. It won't start when the power button is pressed, the sleep indicator light turns on and that's all. There's no start up tune, and nothing appears on screen. I had a similar problem with my MacBook Pro. I was told that the logic board needed to be replaced due to too much dust or moisture. Could this be the same problem? and has anyone else here ever had the same problem?

MacBook Pro :: Computer Freezes After I Press The Power Button?

Jul 22, 2010

I just got my MBP logic board replaced by Apple, and now it works fine, but when I press the power button, my computer freezes and this happens:

I'm probably bringing it to an Apple certified repair center, but I don't trust them as much as I do the Genius Bar, plus I'm pretty good at DIY stuff, so is it possible to fix this by myself?

MacBook Pro :: Press Escape Key To Exit Full Screen

Aug 16, 2010

Whenever I try and watch a full-screen video, like on Engadget, the "Press Escape key to Exit Fullscreen" message never disappears. At first I thought it was Safari (v4.x) so I upgraded to 5.0.1 .. big mistake, saved for another topic, but it still does the same thing. It even happens in Firefox. I have a Spring 2010 MBP.

MacBook Pro :: Have To Long Press Power Button To Switch On

Sep 4, 2014

I have macbook Pro running OS X 10.9.4 purchased in 2012 times. For past few days, I've noticed this problem- I have to long press the power button to switch on the device. Normally, the devices switches on with a simple press on the power button. But for the recent days, when I do a simple press of the power button, I think it switches on and goes off instantly. I had to long press (for around 5-8 seconds) to switch it on. After the device is on, there is no problem at all...
