Twilight28 is a ridiculous fool. Firstly, "Apple doesnt work" in a nonsensical statement with a punctuation error. Secondly, if I am to infer Twitlight28's meaning then an entire company of products do not work ... Wow! Additionally, how was that supposed to help anyone? Finally, who cares about your stupid brand loyalty, it is all a matter of personal taste

My arrow buttons are not working on my wireless keyboard

Hi Janice, Any time I get a wireless keyboard problem the first thing I do is put in a fresh set of betteries. Nine times out of ten that cures the problem. If it doesn't then further investigation is required - howver my workshop time makes it cheaper to buy a new keyboard.
The Mac keyboard has Scroll-lock mapped to F14 but I think the wireless keyboard doesn't have that key.Are the arrow keys just not working in one program or not working at all?

The right shift key does not work as well as a few of the upper left control keys...everything else seems to be working just fine.

Hi there , this might be the ribbon cable connecting the keyboard to the laptop , lay the screen flat , look at the left hand side of the lap top , there is a strip you can lift up , where the power switch is. lift the strip up , you will now see the two screws holding the keyboard down, unscrew them , slide the keyboard up slowly and lift , gentaly you will now see the small riben cable, lift the small black catch , then reseat the cable , push the catch back, and reseat the keyboard. now retry the keyboard ...

DVD reader

Hi I'm sorry you are having trouble,
OK, when was the last time your CD/DVD trey opened properly when instructed by pressing the eject button on your keyboard ?
This (and all other apple computers now) machine does not have a button other than the keyboard eject button to eject or open the trey. The eject button is usually the last key at the top right hand of the keyboard. If you are not using an Apple Keyboard, it does not always work. And, sometimes, that key no longer sends it's request to the Mac... SO,
Have you tried another keyboard ?
Is there a Disk in the reader? Sometimes the disk itself confuses the reader and paralyses it and restarting won't help it even freezes the system....
That is why there is another way to get the CD drive to open or eject a disk that won't come out:
Restart your mac or from an off position, turn on the Mac and VERY QUICKLY press the mouse button ( If you have a mighty mouse, be sure to click the left side of the mouse ) and hold that mouse button down until the disk ejects, depending on how much ram you have, it could take 10 seconds to 70 seconds, be patient...
If the Mac boots without ejecting the disk, then either your mouse or keyboard are not connected directly to the mac, this does not work well through a USB Hub, or the mouse or Keyboard are defective.
Keep trying it with other keyboards or mice until you get that drawer opened.

Sounds like may be a stuck key on your keyboard, try unplugging keyboard long enough to see if it continues. If it turns out to be keyboard, try firmly (bang) each of the following keys several times: [Command] [Alt] left [Alt] right [Tab] [O]. Perhaps the function keys as well. I have had this "unstick" the problematic key before on different keyboards. Reconnect keyboard and see if that helps.
