  1. My A1314 keyboard was working just fine and now it won’t connect to my Mac. The keyboard turns on and flashes green to signal the Bluetooth search. (Batteries have been replaced) Never connects-but I need to type in my password to get to any type of menu.

    Feeling trapped.

  2. My bluetooth keyboard is older – and it will try to connect – even presenting the 6 challenge numbers but it wont type the numbers or the return and just times out of the attempted connection.

    1. Make sure you have followed the instructions on the reset trick (holding the power button) and you are using fresh alkaline batteries (non-rechargeable). You can also try attempting connection to another device (iPhone for example) just to prove whether the keys actually work.

      Make sure that you unpair from that other device after testing to avoid conflicts.
