I just replaced a top case for my Macbook and everything was working great until I started typing. Most keys work however the following ones don't - g,b,t,4,5,7...possibly a couple others.

The top case is used and it was purchased from a Powerseller on eBay who has 11,000 fb with no negatives. They are a full time seller of computer parts.

Before I ask for a refund I was wondering if there is anything that can be done to get these keys working.


Thanks in advance!

Try creating a new user account and testing there. Otherwise the keyboard is bad. Groups of keys are mapped in a matrix, and those keys follow one of the matrices. I would ask for a new one.
