Apple A1242 keyboard

Plugged into my Mac Pro laptop (2011) and it worked fine. Then the middle row of keys stopped working. Stopped connecting at all. I used some screen cleaner on a cloth to clean it up. If that harmed it, how do I fix it?

SOURCE: "Back to my mac" stopped working

Under the Apple Menu, go to System Preferences>Internet & Network>File sharing. Look to see what is checked and not checked. It seems like you may have sharing enabled on yours in more depth than sharing is enabled on dad's. Be careful about enabling online sharing if you have any online banking or other sensitive info on that computer.

SOURCE: Open case of Apple Powerbook G3

Several screws on bottom and the whole top case snaps off. It will take a little time on this model to gently pry. Also, I think the keyboard comes off first before removing the top cover by two finger pegs. It's been a long time since I worked on this model you you'll just have to get in and look around. Very common on this design that the power plug just needs re-soldered to the motherboard.

My tab key is not working on my Mac but mouse does it Just stopped working


There is probably debris under the key. You try to clean it out by prying up slightly on the key and blowing it out fro the other side with a can of air. That should fix it. If not, you may have to remove the key to get to the problem.

Macbook white keyboard keys 5, t, g, ?, ' stopped work


Most likely keyboard is dying! Try connecting an external USB keyboard and use the keys not working on the other keyboard. If they work then it means that you have a faulty keyboard.

Unless you deleted it. You can go to control panel, keyboard and reprogram the key. Or if there is a special keyboard program, you can use that.
