    MacBook keyboard keys not working

    Some of the keys on my 2012 MacBook Pro have stopped working, it's a near vertical line of keys that are affected - 2, W, S, X.

    Strange that its happened like this, especially in a vertical row. They were working fine, then just s topped.

    Any suggestions on how to repair, or will I need to take it to the Apple Store £££££££ ?


    (By the way, it's taken my about 15 mins to type this post on my keyboard by having to search for those letters on the internet and copy/paste them into this post )

    Have a chat with Jon at Bramley Computers. He's an Apple expert and repairs Apple computers.

    He's based in Chesterfield. Tell him I sent you his way.

    Have you tried it with a USB or Bluetooth external keyboard to see if the keys are really the issue?

    Plus 1 for John. Just upgraded my iMac. Nice chap. Seems to know his stuff!
    There are but three parts to make up a man: his shadow behind, the road ahead and the clothes on his back.

    Try using a phone or iPad for porn instead. MacBook keys don't like spunk.

    Thanks Tufty, I'm taking it in to Jon for a new keyboard. Asked him to source me a battery as well as they are getting hard to find for my 15" 2012 MacBook Pro

    Glad it's worked out for you. He's a top bloke.

    He's sorted my stuff successfully quite a few times.

    Another mention for them. Had a logic board replaced in a MacBook Air together with a new microphone. Reasonably priced and work was guaranteed.
