Hey, Shawn! ULTBW100 46.168 visualizaciones 11:29 How to repair an Apple MacBook power supply (MagSafe) - Duración: 15:37. I' ve tried fixing the problem with a small piece of carton, but it doesnt permanently solve it. I didn't realize the battery would go out so soon.

When I apply the tissue or paper solution I still get no results. But, it is asking for my password XXXXX keyboard still will not work, so I am unable to enter it. Oh, I posted this problem on a major Mac forum with no response…then a good friend sent me this link. 57 Frank D'Angelo Mar 25, 2009 at 7:37 am Jason, Thanks I've been a loyal customer for almost 20 years!

Suggestions? Expert: Shawn replied8 years ago. And perhaps the sticky note isn't putting enough pressure on it to be useful. Damn it! Try folding it in half after rolling it up. @ Gab: Glad to help! =) 12 Heet Dec 20, 2008 at 12:06 am Just beware - mine started out like this

If you can't see the Apple Internal Keyboard/Trackpad from the choices, try to select the Apple Composite and it should show the Apple Internal Keyboard/Trackpad from the choices. I don't have the time to send it in for repair.

I was told this is not an Apple recognised fault… Strange as there are hundreds of people having the same problem and are all reported on Apple's Forum, but according to share Share on Twitter Share on Facebook Email Link Like + Quote Reply Sawtooth811, Apr 5, 2010 Sawtooth811 thread starter macrumors 6502 Joined: Oct 18, 2007 Location: Charleston, IL #16 The Shawn, YOU ARE THE MAN!!!

I work too much to be without this thing for 4 or 5 days and can't believe I have to deal with all this on a MacBook Pro (15″) that I this content Eventually I had to bring my laptop in to Apple and they replaced the top case. The comp barley functions at that temp. Good Luck, N.

Thanks Jason! 2.5 gHz MBP 47 Hendrik Runte Mar 5, 2009 at 2:34 pm THANK YOU SO MUCH! Everything else works fine. After I got frustrated trying to solve it again, I left it open (not in sleep mode) for 10 minutes and now it's alive again. I have been carrying around me bluetooth keyboard and external mouse for 3 months now.

Margo Customer: replied8 years ago. According to's diagrams, you can lift this flap up. A week back I bought a used macbook pro (2.4, 4gb, 320)with dead trackpad and a keyboard with about half the price compared to a similar model that works fine. (550e/about1000e).

It can be come dislodged, crimped or damaged, A solution is to flip the laptop over, press the cable straight, wrap it with some scrap paper.

Nothing.For now, I’ll just have to use a mouse. All Rights Reserved Theme designed by Audentio Design. Thank You. 32 Jason Robb Jan 31, 2009 at 12:18 pm Glad to help! It happened to my MBP yesterday, and I´ve already phoned Apple Support and they had no answers, I came very close to paying 250$ earlier today to get in front in

Some specifications that you'll want to consider when purchasing from the Apple store: 15" or 17" screen - your preference At least 2 GB of memory, since you run a lot Margo, Thank you so much for the update on what you've tried so far! From the FAQ of a Mac trackpad software (Link): In order to support two-finger scrolling the trackpad hardware must support detecting two fingers on the trackpad. check over here Room for a class-action??) If it's a fairly common problem due to an obvious design flaw, why wont Apple fess up and straighten out the problem voluntarily?

This is extremely difficult for the average person (most people) to diagnose, and, for those who are not industrious enough to dig for the solution (as anyone reading this has), they Thanks so much, there isn't an applecare store within a few hundred miles of where I am right now… so yea. Hopefully this isn't the motherboard. But, while doing that, I want them to be honest and fair and provide a quality, lasting product at a fair price.

During the times when I got them to finally work, I'd notice HardwareGrowler report that the "Apple Internal Keyboard has disconnected" then "connected" in rapid succession. I have tried the fix posted here and no dice. homestarmy Diamond Member Joined: Apr 16, 2004 Messages: 3,528 Likes Received: 0 My coworker at my internship here has a PowerBook G4 (one of the tiny ones, 12") and she wants I brought it back home to back it up before surgery, but wanted to confirm the diagnosis and found your site.

Maddening! Try this other solution, I found this solution somewhere and it works for me. p.s. you need to apply pressure and keep it there.

Late PowerBooks and Early MacBooks use this driver, and it has sensitivity settings which are defined in the source file, appletouch.c.

I didn't find how to fix it. Would have saved me hours upon hours… only thing was the I was initially searching "macbook pro keyboard trackpad intermittently stop working" and this post came up when I searched fix Your suggestions were wonderful, clear and much appreciated. I went to my local apple store after my intermitent problem became permanent.
