TIP 012: Macintosh Keyboard Troubleshooting and Fixes
Here are some suggestions for what you can do if your Mac computer keyboard suddenly stops working properly in the middle of a project. Some of these can apply to a PC user as well.
00:00 - Intro and basic keyboard troubleshooting.
00:51 - My purchase of a full-sized replacement keyboard.
02:03 - Workaround for typing while waiting for new keyboard to arrive.
03:00 - Don't forget to remove any USB accessories from the old keyboard.
03:18 - Wrap up.
The replacement keyboard I purchased was from the Canadian company, Matias. http://www.Matias.ca/
Mine was the full-sized wired backlit space-grey Mac keyboard.
** One thing I did find when I first got the keyboard was that it would occasionally repeat characters, depending on which application I was typing in. I got in touch with the company and they responded immediately with a solution. So customer service with Matias is great, in my opinion!
Here's their suggested fix in case you run into the same issue:
On your Mac - in "System Preferences", click on the "Keyboard Icon"
and then adjust the "Key Repeat" to Slow or Off - you may also want to
adjust the "Delay Until Repeat" to Long.
That fix did the trick for me and now I LOVE my new Matias keyboard!
Thanks for watching!
