  1. Hi Dave, hope you can help me!

    I have an older iMac (2012/13), with an Apple wireless keyboard paired. Never had any problems with it, never had any other keyboards paired to the iMac since I got it. Yesterday turned it on, and keyboard wouldn’t work. I’m getting the constant 2 green flashes, so I know it’s in pairing mode. Problem is, I can’t get past my login screen to fix it through the Bluetooth settings without typing my login password on the keyboard, which of course is not responding. My wireless mouse is still working fine.

    I also know the wireless keyboard still works as I was able to pair it to my iPad.

    I assume my next step is to find a USB wired keyboard, as I can’t pair any other keyboard wirelessly without having access to the iMac Bluetooth settings? Or do you know of any other problem I could be having, or another way to pair a different wireless keyboard?

    Thanks for your time!
