MacBook Pro :: Media Keys No Longer Work?

Jun 4, 2014

The media keys on my MacBook Pro (retina, 13-inch, late 2013, OS X 10.9.3) don't work anymore with iTunes. All other function keys work. All other function keys continue to work when "Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys" is selected in System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Keyboard, but F7, F8, and F9 still do not do anything. I have not found a way to map them either.

MacBook Pro :: Broken Keyboard - Keys No Longer Work

Feb 23, 2010

I have a mid-2007 Macbook Pro (A1226). I accidentally spilt soup on it, and now the "z, x, c" keys no longer work. The apple store said I need a keyboard replacement. However, do you think that if I take apart the keyboard and clean it with rubbing alcohol, it will fix it? Or if not rubbing alcohol, what kind of solution could I use?

OS X :: Upgrade To Leopard - Function Keys No Longer Work

Jun 10, 2009

I upgraded yesterday, and since then my key commands no longer work. If I restart, they will work for a little while, then suddenly stop working. I cannot take screen shots, or get Expose to work with F10, F12, etc. Apple-Tab doesn't bring up the applications currently open, etc. I've searched all over for this issue, but not finding anything. On a Macbook Pro, upgraded from Tiger.

OS X :: Spaces Shortcut Keys - No Longer Work - System Preferences Being Unassigned?

Aug 2, 2009

Whenever I assign shortcut keys to Spaces using the Expose' & Spaces panel in System Preferences, it seems that in a day or two the shortcut keys no longer work and System Preferences shows them as being unassigned. I thought there may be a conflict with another shortcut but there isn't - at least according to the Keyboard & Mouse panel in System Preferences. This happens on both my MBP and my iMac as well as on the PowerMac I recently sold. I've tried other keys and combinations but with the same results. I've also experienced this in all versions of Leopard including the current 10.5.7. I'm using F8 to activate Spaces, Command + Option + Arrow key to switch between Spaces and Command + Option + Number key to switch directly to a Space. Has anyone else experienced this?

iTunes is playing and I hit the play/pause key (F8) the entire keyboard will go dark, but only if I'm pausing. it doesn't do it when I'm hitting the button to resume a song, only when I'm using it to pause one. the backlight sometimes takes minutes to come back on, at random, and sometimes it doesn't and I just have to turn it back on myself.

Hardware :: Enhancing Media Keys For ITunes

Sep 30, 2008

I used an extension to control iTunes from within the game. It worked much as the media keys do now, with one (great) additional feature: the name of the song you unpaused or skipped to appeared briefly on the screen, Quicksilver style.

I'm loving the media keys but I really miss this feature. Has anyone heard of a plugin that accomplishes this? If not, does anyone know if it's possible or where a starting point for writing such a plugin is?

MacBook :: 5 Keys Don't Work But Sometimes OK

Sep 25, 2009

So back in May all of a sudden my Delete key stopped working well, I had to press it twice basically to get a response. I also noticed that my tab key and my space key didn't work either, as well as my right arrow and my up arrow. All summer they worked fine, and now that school has started again they don't work well. Sometimes they don't work at all, sometimes space but not delete, sometimes they only work when I press twice, etc.

I brought this up in May and people said its keyboard failure and that I need to back everything up before I can't use my laptop. I disagreed, since if it was laptop failure it wouldn't be just 5 keys. I was right and here I am many months later. I crackedopen my(crap.there.goes.thespace.key.not.kidding 0) and every thing seemed ok. I closed it back up and now I am making this topic. What could be causing my TAB, DELETE, SPACEBAR, RIGHT ARROW, TOP ARROW, to not work, sometimes. Sometimes it works perfect for days/weeks, and then all of a sudden works 50% or not work at........

May 9, 2012

I purchased a used aluminum MacBook Pro a couple years ago, and about 6 months ago the 9 and a couple function keys stopped working.  However when the computer gets to a certain temperature they start working again.  Does the keyboard just need to be replaced or is it something else?

Get the sound back on my late-2007 13" MacBook!

MacBook Pro :: Unresponsive Keys On Startup - Work Intermittently When Machine Warmed Up

Apr 16, 2012

My Macbook is only about a year old and the tab key, the numeral one key, the tilde and screen brighter key (not the dimmer key) have all stopped working well. They are non-responsive for about ten minutes after I open/start up, and then start working intermittently once the machine has warmed up. I clean the surface of the keyboard regularly and none of the other keys seem to be having a problem.

OS X :: Most Of Keys Don't Work

Aug 1, 2009

I have a new MBP 13" and it's been amazing so far. I just experienced this odd issue a few hours ago when I went to lower the volume from my keyboard. In doing so, it didn't alter the volume's level, but launched the actions from the keys on top-left side. Most of the keys in the middle don't even work at all. I tried restarting the MacBook and I'm still experiencing the same problem. It seems that all of the keys on the keyboard are just fine, with the exception of the very top row. Any clue as to how I can fix this and get the keys to do what they're supposed to?
