Im new to mac so please bare with me if I dont know some stuff. I have a 333mhz G3 with 192mb ram running Jaguar 10.2.8. I took apart my original apple pro keyboard G3 to clean it... All the keys work apart from my "f" key. I can Get capital F but no non capital f. In key caps utilty it shows im pressing the f but nothing appears in the box. It will only work if I use shift. If I use caps lock nothing happens yet still shows the key as bieng pressed. Any Ideas towards my problem? I might have pressed a weird combination or something?


Thanks For Your Time.

Try a re-boot, see if that helps.

DawVideos,

Have a look here: http://www.ifixit.com/ and see if you can look at the keyboard install on your machine... maybe you'll find where the problem occurred. Maybe a replacement key or keyboard if you can't otherwise get it fixed. Looks like a hardware, rather than software, problem...
