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

MacBook Pro :: Illuminated Keyboard Not Working / Only Few Random Keys Are Working

Sep 18, 2009

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.

Software :: Apple Bluetooth Keyboard Stopped Working / Itunes Stopped Working

May 13, 2009

I installed 10.5.7 yesterday. Immediately after the installation was complete, my Apple bluetooth keyboard stopped working. Went into Bluetooth system settings, and it said that there was no bluetooth hardware found... (it's built into the machine!!)...

Also, every time I start iTunes, it gives some weird error about Adobe Flash player. I'm not at home now so I don't have the exact wording of the error with me, sorry...

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.

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.

OS X :: MacBook Trackpad And Keyboard Stopped Working Suddenly

Feb 10, 2009

It seems that during my afternoon class, I shut down my macbook and then when I went to use it about 10 minutes later the keyboard nor the trackpad works. Now the keyboard/trackpad is not defective as it works via the OSX install cd and it works in Windows Vista (dual booted) When ever I start up OSX it just comes up and the mouse is in the upper left hand corner, and the keyboard doesn't work at all. I have tried a pram reset by pressing command + option + p + r and that did nothing. When I am in OSX the only way to get out is to hold down the power button till the macbook turns off. What else could be wrong is there anything I can do, the nearest Apple store is about 80 miles away so I am trying to avoid that at this point as it seems like a software issue.

MacBook Pro :: Top Most Line Of My Keyboard Suddenly Stopped Working?

Jun 11, 2010

Two or three days ago, the topmost line of my keyboard (contains esc, brightness, expose, dashboard, play/pause, mute, eject, etc.) suddenly stopped working. Strangely, some of the keys have switched functions: expose opens a search bar, keyboard dimmer refreshes the webpage, keyboard brighter selects the web address, play/pause is now shows Spaces, skip forward is expose, and sound increase is dashboard. I reset my keyboard, but nothing changed.

MacBook :: 10.5.6 Keyboard Stopped Working - Feels Like Virus?

Mar 15, 2012

This week, my macbook keyboard started becoming erratic, then became much worse.  Basically, it started with the tab key not working, then the keys 'r' and 'a' and 'v' stopped.  It felt like a virus, although I cannot seem to find many people with similar issues. Progressively, the keyboard has got much worse, to the point that it cannot now be used. Bizarrely, if I plug in a USB keyboard, as I am using now, then I am able to type without any issue. 

I have searched forums and have done the basic stuff - reset my PRAM, reset the SMC (although I am not sure whether this was done properly, as resetting the SMC was a basic exercise, unlike PRAM reste where a noise indictaed it having been complete). I feel that the next step is to do a complete reinstall, but I don't want to do this if possible, as I don't know how it will affect the lion install etc.

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....

MacBook Pro :: Currently Best Keyboard Cover In Terms Of Fitment / Feedback?

Jun 1, 2010

I've been looking around for a new keyboard cover for my macbook and I was wondering which company offers the best fitment/tactile feedback.

I've heard of...KB Covers
Moshi Clearguard
Rearth Verco

So far, I've purchased one off eBay and a Logiix branded one, but I'm not completely satisfied with either one. I don't like how the molding for each key from the eBay one is slightly larger than the actual keys, and that it leaves an imprint on the LCD when the lid is closed, however, it is quiet and typing doesn't require any extra effort. The Logiix one resembles Moshi's Clearguard, where the fitment for the Fn keys is slightly longer at the top. The molding for this one fits like a glove, but typing feels unnatural and it is noticeably noisier. I think the noise comes from the silicone being pinched between the small gap around each key when they are pressed. Typing seems to require more effort because of this. I would like to know if other brands with an exact keyboard fit molding also suffer from this noise issue. Looking around for reviews, I am now somewhat interested inRearth Verco's product. They explain that their silicone molding's thickness around the edges of each key is much thinner than it is in the centre, therefore it requires less effort to press each key. From photos, it appears that the Moshi's Clearguard also has this design.

OS X :: Keyboard And Trackpad Stopped Working - Fixing It?

Mar 18, 2009

Today I was working with some work and put my laptop to sleep by shutting the lid. Less than half an hour later I opened it and the keyboard and trackpad were both unresponsive. I tried everything but nothing worked so I shutdown the computer by holding the power button down. I then restarted it and they still wouldn't work so I was unable to login. I have also tried an SMC reset but this was to no avail either.
