F1-f12 keys not working on mac


Switch all function keys with System Preferences

Dan danj. Self employed contract worker. Go into the Keyboard Prefs setting window and click on the Righthand menu choice 'Input Source' now hi light from the left column the keyboards flag in my case a US flag using the minus key at the bottom, then close the window and restart the system, then reopen to add it back in. Did that solve it?

Toggle Fn Lock

We will need to know what are your keyboard resources are. Now in the left column expand Hardware section and then click on the USB. Take a screenshot of the window and paste it here for us to see. I assume the reason you replaced the trackpad was do to a liquid spill of some sort.

Sadly, what ever spilled also effected the keyboard. I would visit an Apple Store and see what they have to say is the issue.

What is SmartGenius?

Once they report back to you on whats wrong you can decide if you want them to fix it or give it a try your self. I tried the first thing you said about the minus, but it did not help at all. I didnt have a bluetooth keyboard so instead I used my phone as a trackpad and keyboard Application and tried the F keys and still they are like that. That means there is no damaged keys and they work.

My language is Norwegian, but note that the F keys worked all of them, I cannot believe how the F keys are mapped or something ,really strange. But if this was a bad keyboard then the bluetooth keyboard should have used the f keys correctly. When both keyboards give the same results it means that it must be something on the software?

I would still visit the Apple Store to see if they can explain it.

I'm at a loss why the external is likewise having the mis-mapped function keys as well. I figured a way to fix the Screen brightess and volume keys by using Keyboard Maestro and mapping these. However now my life works again, but the only problem is rest of the keys. I am afraid of going to Apple Store and they taking my Macbook or something because I repaired it by myself. You'll be fine! All they can do is say no.
