Question about Apple Macintosh Keyboard

1 Answer

I recently have been having problems w/certain keys on my Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad. I used some wipes to clean it the other day...and almost immediately the spacebar & a lot of of other keys where not working properly. Then a few hours later some of the keys including spacebar started to work. But there are a few buttons left specifically on number pad that just don't seem to respond or work when pressed

    It would be helpful if you could specify which keys "just don't seem to respond or work when pressed." Some keys on the numeric keypad have no visible effect, and others are only active in certain contexts.

Some of the fluid from the wipes must have short circuited the keyboard! you may have to invest in a new keyboard and keep it away from water based wipes this time!

I NEED A MANUAL TO SHOW HOW TO GET MULTIFUNCTION KEYS TO WORK. FOR EXAMPLE HOW DO I GET THE ALTERNATE USE OF THE "NUMERIC 6 "KEY ie THE" QUESTION MARK" FUNCTION


You must have a different keyboard selected other than the standard US keyboard My numeral 6 has ^ on it and the numeric keypad 6 has a right arrow. One generally uses the SHIFT key to access symbols that are written above the main alpha or numeric key. The numeric keypad on side of PC has a button labeled key marked NUMLOCK that is engaged to allow use of the numerals as a calculator or to also be inserted into text.

Cant get the at button to work even by pressing shift or not,every other key function works.


You may have a bad key, or a key with something under it.
Try this:

Turn the netbook upside down so that the keysj face the floor.
Bang on the back side that way you would to burp a baby.
Then, take a vacuum cleaner and **** out the spaces between the keys.
If this doesn't work, you may have to make an @ symbol manually by using the ALT key. (ALT plus 64). This should work in most Word Processing programs.
  1. Make certain that the Num Lock key has been pressed to activate the numeric key section of the keyboard.
  2. Depress the Alt key.
  3. While the Alt key is depressed, type the proper sequence of numbers (on the numeric keypad) of the ALT code from the table above.
  4. Release the Alt key, and the character will appear.
  5. On a laptop computer, there usually is no numeric keypad. So, instead, depress the Fn (function) key, then the Alt key, then the numerical code sequence. The numbers are on the fronts of certain keyboard keys: M=0, J=1, K=2, L=3, U=4, I=5, O=6, 7=7, 8=8, and 9=9.

Numeric keypad seems to have died. Is there any fix for this besides throwing it out the window?


There is little to fix on these as the cost of repair would be more than a new keypad would cost.

Lock 9 light is on


The numeric keypad functions like the numeric keypad on an external keyboard. Each key on the keypad has multiple functions. The keypad numbers and symbols are marked in blue on the right of the keypad keys. To type a number or symbol, hold down <Fn> and press the desired key.
  • To enable the keypad, press <Num Lk>. The keyboar2.jpg light indicates that the keypad is active.

  • To disable the keypad, press <Num Lk> again.

maybe it is full of dust on those buttons. Try cleaning it with a duster of mini-brush because it interrupts the function.
