keyboard/malfunction

Postby manas » Wed Apr 17, 2013 3:07 am

Hi/fellow/members
the/keyboard/of/this/darn/apple/computer/just/broke
i/can/now/no/longer/type/spaces/as/the/space/bar/key/doesnt/work/at/all
to/be/honest/i/had/problems/with/it/from/the/start/with/certain/keys/jamming/or/not/coming/up/properly
i/have/some/advice/it/is:/place/any/cup/of/tea/on/a/level/higher/than/your/keyboard/is/at
or/this/could/also/happen/to/you
if/my/old/pc/keyboards/lying/in/a/box/somewhere/are/not/compatible/i/will/have/to/buy/a/new/keyboard/methinks
metta
Then the Blessed One, picking up a tiny bit of dust with the tip of his fingernail, said to the monk, "There isn't even this much form...feeling...
perception...fabrications...consciousness that is constant, lasting, eternal, not subject to change, that will stay just as it is as long as eternity."

my/initial/reaction/(internally)/was/like/this :computerproblem:
then/i/remembered:/equanimity... :meditate:
computer/keyboards/are/fabricated/after/all
and/all/fabricated/things/are/liable/to/decay
verily/all/things/subject/to/arising/are/also/subject/to/passing/away
so/to/get/this/reminder/means/that/something/good/came/out/of/the/event
but/now/i/really/do/have/to/get/a/new/keyboard/dammit
and/organise/my/desk/so/that/drinks/never/again/find/their/way/into/the/keyboard!

(just joking!!!)

You may be able to resurrect your keyboard by popping the affected key/s off and giving it a clean-up. I know you could do that with the old ones but the new ones like http://store.apple.com/au/product/MB110LL/B/apple-keyboard-with-numeric-keypad-english-usa?mco=MTA4Mzc4ODA# apparently can't be disassembled.
HOWEVER, you could try washing it - as per http://forums.macrumors.com/archive/index.php/t-1012230.html.
:jawdrop:
At your own risk, of course.

Hi, Manas,
With old keyboards, as in the pics above, yes - they are just clipped in. "New" keyboards (aluminium frame, low-profile keys) don't come apart ... return to previous post and read through the links. :tongue:

http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/using-your-old-pcs-keyboard-and-mouse-with-a-mac.html may be another solution.
