Question about Apple Wireless Keyboard

1 Answer

The last battery in my apple wireless keyboard is stuck and I can't get it out. Tapping it gently and poking a knitting needle inside did nothing to dislodge it. That end of the keyboard does not obviously have a way into it. Any idea how to get it out?

How do I cast off in knitting?

Take a needle several sizes larger than the ones you have used for the knitting - so the loops will be larger and the edge looser, knit the first two stitches onto the larger needle then use the tip of the other needle to lift the first stitch over the second one and right off the needle, so it is looped over the second stitch, but is no longer on the needle.
Knit another stitch and repeat the lifting over. I f you are casting off all the stitches continue to the end of the row and then cut the yarn, pass the end of the yarn through the last stitch and draw it up.
If you are only casting off part of the row then move the last stitch onto the right size needle and continue knitting on the stitches left in the row.

My keyboard says it is out of batteries after only 1 week. I have tried putting brand new batteries in and the same thing happened - this time, they only lasted 3 days! During this time the keyboard lost...

There is something definitely wrong with your keyboard. My batteries last 4-6 months or more.Even with real cheap junk batteries and a lot of use the batteries would last a month or more.

The first and about only thing you can check for and fix is a stuck key. If the key is stuck down the keyboard uses far more power (about 20x) as it is transmitting. That is about the only thing I can think of that will drain the battery that fast. The problem is it sounds like is actually working normally when its working. The disconnecting is going to be either internal or the antenna placement. With it connecting and disconnecting it would use more power but not that much.

I would check for stuck keys, but after that I'm afraid a replacement keyboard. There just isn't that much to fix inside or out of these things so you have very few options on what to do. If you have warranty get it exchanged asap.

Accidentally left one battery in an Apple wireless keyboard. It is stuck / corroded. Any ideas on how to remove it safely?


You'll have to pry it out gently with a flat headed screwdriver. Be very carefull not to break the contacts as you will need to clean the contacts after you have got the battery out of the keyboard.

Fine sandpaper will clean the contacts if you wrap the paper around a small flat headed screwdriver.

Fcp logic wireless keyboard A1016 stopped working

Sounds like the keyboard is bad because its eating batteries up to quickly. I would probably try a good quality battery like Duracell or Energizer. If you were already using those then don't buy any. If you haven't tried those batteries then try those and see if the same thing happens, if it does then you know the keyboard would have to be replaced.

My gut feeling is when you saw the swollen battery inside of your keyboard then that was the begininng of the keyboard going bad.

Last battery in my Mac wireless keyboard is stuck inside. Second time this has happened. First time I took it to the mac store and the guy took it to the back room and got it out. When I asked how they did...

Usually a stuck battery is caused by a battery that has leaked acid in the battery compartment...If it a small space you might try a small dental mirror to see why it is stuck..
Since it is a keyboard a strong magnet like a mechanic uses might have enough force to pull it out...unfortunately some product are designed to be a pain in the backside so you have to resort to beating the xxxx out of it

Last battery is stuck in wireless keyboard casing

I am not an expert but I did fix this. First I drilled a small hole in the end of a battery. Second I used a long screw, any self tapping will work. Screwed into the battery a bit. Then pulled the screw with a pair of pliers. Out came the battery. Then, I cleaned out the battery compartment with a rotary tool attachment.
