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.

If this is a wireless keyboard, you can do two things to try to correct this issue. You can remove the batteries and leave it sit for a few minutes and try again, or you can replace the batteries and see it that helps.

How to remove and replace batteries

    • 1 Flip your wireless mouse over and remove the battery cover. Gently pull it up and set it down in a safe place.
    • 2 Carefully remove each battery.
    • 3 Insert the new AA batteries into the mouse. Make sure the positive and negative connectors are lined up correctly. Do not force or jam your batteries into place.
    • 4 Place the battery cover over the opening and click it into place. Flip your mouse over. If your particular mouse has a charged or not-charged display light, make sure it is showing full strength.

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.
