MacBook :: Right Shift Key Does Not Work

Apr 1, 2012

I purchased a late 2009 13" Macbook with 2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 2 GB ram as a present for my son in college.  He had problems last year and the top case and motherboard were replaced in early 2011; Recently his battery would not hold a charge and his hard drive failed.  I replaced both and added more ram to speed it up -  now at 8 GB)The right shift key does not work.  I have checked universal access; speech-to-text features are off; checked keyboard - English is chosen; checked keyboard, shift key is not assigned to any function;Left shift key does work.  Right shift key does work on an attached Logitech wireless keyboard.  The key seems to press down okay, just will not capitalize any letters.

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.8), Late 2009

Mac Pro :: Left Shift - W Doesn't Work?

Jan 23, 2009

I can't type a capital w (i.e. "W") by holding down my left shift and the "w" key.

If I hold down the right shift key, it works fine. Lower case w works fine. Any other capital letter using the left shift also works.

So it's only the left shift and "w" combination that seems not to work.

Bizarro world, but VERY frustrating.

I borrowed another apple keyboard and the same thing happens - so it would appear to be a software problem.

Software :: Shift Does Not Work During Quick User Account Change?

Jan 9, 2010

When returning to my login account (admin) after using "quick user account change" I am not able to use the Shift key to enter uppercase letters in my password. I must use Caps Lock to enter them (nothing happens if I type while holding the Shift key).

At all other times the shift work just fine.

This seems really strange.

Note: This is not a sticky key issue (brand new iMac).

MacBook Shift Key Stuck?

Mar 20, 2012

for Christmas I got my moms old macbook. It was some things that were wrong with it but she took it to get fixed at apple for like 500$ so Im sure she doesn't have warranty. The other day I was typing a report and it kept typing in capitals when I didn't have the caps lock on...I figured out that it was something with the shift key. I took it off, and that still didnt work. I haven't spilled anything on it at all. I take very good care of it also. Now I can't en log in because my password has numbers which only turn into symbols.

MacBook :: Shift While Caps Lock On

Nov 6, 2008

if caps lock is off, shift of course makes the letter you hit capital. However, if caps lock is on, and you hit shift, the letter is capital, not lowercase. In Windows it would be lowercase. Is my MacBook acting how is should?

MacBook :: Swap Backspace - Shift Keys?

Jul 23, 2009

Suddenly my backspace button has stopped working. Restarting or running Windows XP doesn't help a thing. Is it possible to use the right shift button as a backspace-button, you know changing what the keys do. It's quite irritating not being able to delete stuff. What I'd like: To use my right shift key instead of the backspace.

MacBook Pro :: External Keyboard Shift Not Working?

Sep 1, 2014

I'm using a MacBook Pro 13" Mid 2012 (no Retina) with an external keyboard (Apple A1243 USB). I was using Mountain Lion.

One month ago I was suffering a problem that both shift keys of my external keyboard were not working properly. Only if I press both shift keys simultaneously they worked. But, also other keys were activated (e.g. "e" and "r" or "5" and "6" on the number block). The keyboard works fine on differnet computers.

Only a full system recovery solved the problems, meaning this is a software problem. 

Today, I'm facing the same problem again and don't want to do the recovery again.

I tryed this steps: One or more keys on the keyboard do not respond

I also updated to maverick, without succes. 

Info:
MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.5)

MacBook :: Left Shift Button Types Only An Uppercase?

Nov 28, 2010

My keyboard has suddenly started doing weird things, such as the left shift button types an uppercase 'r', the 'r' key will only type as uppercase, and the right shift key takes me to the overlay screen with post-it notes and the calculator. Any ideas besides taking it to the mac store? And any idea on how much they typically charge to fix things like this?
