Question about Apple Wireless Keyboard

1 Answer

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 and regained connection with my laptop all the time. What is wrong?

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.

Suddenly can't type in keyboard. Desktop computer. Brand new batteries. Must fix soon. Help!


I would take the batteries back out and put them back in. You may have put the batteries in the wrong way. Another thing you can do is to unplug the dongle that came with the keyboard and mouse. You can wait a few seconds and plug it back in. The batteries you are installing may be bad. Try installing another set of alkaline batteries. Try rebooting your computer, see if that helps. Your wireless keyboard and mouse may be going out. You can find new wireless keyboards and mice at Walmart, Best Buy, Office Depot, Etc.

Purchased new laptop and wireless mouse, first day worked great, after a week tried to use mouse again.....just not working have replaced battery no luck


I would try unplugging the usb receiver and restarting the computer.
Then plug it back in.
Sadly, with these, along with replacing the battery, that's the only option.

Sounds like the scales have developed a leak across the battery and is draining the power. New scales maybe the best option but before that, have a look to see if there is any spilliage around the pcboard and/or battery terminals.

I think you have a short in the seat motor. Doublecheck circuit breaker for electric seats. It has a reset button on it. Perhaps it has tripped. If yes, need to find short in seat.

Keyboard does not always pick up letters I type.


This may or may not be a solution but 1 try putting brand new batteries in the mouse and keyboard and move all cellular and cordless devices away from the computer. Other than that see if there's a coloration between how much is going on in the PC (like how much cpu\ram\disk reading) and the times when the pc doesn't pick up the key strokes. Lastly is the keyboard clean?

A temporary fix to power up is to press the menu and power button at the same time. When the lens is extended and it beeps, on my camera , the lens is *stuck* Give it a gentle tug , then try the power button again
