1.Switch off the keyboard by holding down the power button for at least 3 seconds
2.Click the Bluetooth icon in the menu bar
3.Click on “Set Up Bluetooth Device”
4.Turn on the keyboard by holding down the power button, BUT DO NOT LET GO OF THE POWER BUTTON. It must be kept held down through the entire
5.The Setup Assistant will find the keyboard, so click the name of the keyboard, and then click on “Continue”. Make sure you are still holding the
power button down.
6.You will be prompted for the Pairing Code. You can now release the power button, type the pairing code on the keyboard and then press return. There
will be a slight delay whilst the pairing completes (a few seconds)
7.The keyboard will now be Paired.
So just to clarify, the trick is to continually HOLD DOWN THE POWER BUTTON.
Also, the keyboard itself could be screwed up (buttons stuck) You can un-pair the keyboard with your machine, pair it with another, test, and if it
works, un-pair and pair again. Something of a pain in practice. Also, there are multiple places on OS X where keyboard behavior can be modified, i.e.
you press a particular key on the keyboard, but some other function occurs on the Mac. You need to check System Preferences > Keyboard > Input Sources
are correct for your locale. Check System Preferences > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts don’t have incorrect behaviors defined. Individual
applications can also modify behavior, so if you’ve recently installed new software, check there. Also, check System Preferences > Language & Text >
Text to see if there are any substitutions that could be causing problems. Use the ‘Restore Defaults’ button where provided to be sure, although
bear in mind any legitimate customizations you’ve already made may be lost.
