  • My Macbook Pro (bought in 2013) function keys are not working

    My Macbook Pro (bought in 2013) function keys are not working. The function keys ie the volume and brightness are not working at all both with one single tap and with the function button. I have checked the settings for the keyboard but nothing seems to stand out that is making the keys not work?
    Please can you help?
    Thanks

    Some might suggest resetting the SMC, but I don't really think that will solve the problem. You can try, though.
    I would suggest, since you're still under warranty, taking your machine to your local Apple Store/AASP and letting them fix the problem. It could be any sort of hardware problem. Only the Apple techs have the tools to properly diagnose and repair the machine.

    What type of encryption are you using with your wireless network -WEP or WPA?
    If your wireless router supports both which it should unless it is quite old and you are using WEP, try switching to WPA which is much more secure than WEP which is important if you have a Windows PC or any Windows based device connected to your network.
    In addition, when was the last time you checked Netgear's website to see if there is a firmware update available for your wireless router model that you haven't installed?

  • MST Support for MacBook Pro Retina Late 2013 - DisplayPort 1.2 - Will it ever happen? (with sources)

    So back in October, I purchased a brand new Macbook Pro Retina (MBPr), fully loaded with top of the line specs.  I was soooo excited to have Thunderbolt 2 tech which Intel AND Apple describes as having DisplayPort 1.2a compatibility - which up to this point is unfortunately NOT the case.  The point of the information/questions and requests in this article is to engage a conversation about the issues of not having MST support after Apple falsely mislead their consumers to think otherwise - especially when it is clear the MBPr is capable.  Please read on...
    Apple advertises that the Thunderbolt 2 ports on BOTH the MBPr and the new Mac Pro (NMP) will have 4K Display support with the famed 20gb/sec Ports (DisplayPort 1.2 only requires a little above 17gb/sec).  Now that the 10.9.1 update has been released, we have failed to see MST or Multi-Stream Transport enabled on the MBPr Late 2013.  Now, as for the New Mac Pro- it DOES have MST enabled in 10.9.1 with the AMD GPUs.  For all of you out there that's questioning what this means, short answer is basically the Mac Pro will be able to power a 4K Monitor at 60Hz through the Thunderbolt 2 Port but the New MBPr is stuck with only HDMI 1.4 support which tops out at 4K 30Hz. 30Hz is unacceptable for anything but movies or a photo slideshow.  At 30Hz the cursor will jump across the screen, eliminating any of the benefits of 4K.
    BUT it gets worse...
    Apple can be seen advertising that the new MBPr 15" model can power a 4K monitor THROUGH the Thunderbolt 2 Port here: http://www.apple.com/thunderbolt - This article quotes the following:
    "Now with Thunderbolt 2 built into the new Mac Pro and MacBook Pro with Retina display, you can connect the latest 4K desktop displays and get double the bandwidth for your peripherals. And the two generations of Thunderbolt technology are compatible with each other."
    Does this not let the consumer assume that the newest MBPr will be able to drive a 4K display through the Thunderbolt 2 Port?  I would say yes it does, but at the time I wrote this, the TB2 Ports can't power a 4K display because, as previously stated, MST is disabled in Mavericks for the 15" MBPr Late 2013.
    NOW, later on Apple posted the following article on 4K support here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT6008
    4K support on the MacBook Pro (Retina, Late 2013)
    MacBook Pro supports 4K displays and Ultra HD TVs at the following resolutions and refresh rates with the built-in HDMI port:
    3840 x 2160 at 30 Hz refresh rate
    4096 x 2160 at 24 Hz refresh rate (mirroring is not supported at this resolution)
    In the article above the New Mac Pro is listed as having support for a 4K Display with the Thunderbolt 2 Port (or MST DisplayPort 1.2a Technology) at 60Hz with no problem.  This leads myself and many others to believe that MST will NEVER be enabled on the newest MacBook Pro Retina with Nvidia GPUs. Yes, 4K IS supported but ONLY through the HDMI 1.4 port, which has the limitation of only 30hz.  This two-faced advertising is extremely upsetting to a LOT of people, including myself.
    Interestingly enough, THIS IS NOT a hardware issue.  If one ventures into Windows 8.1 via Bootcamp and connects a 4K Display via the Thunderbolt 2 (or through DP1.2) Port, the Display registers at 60Hz, thus proving that the Thundberbolt 2 Hub Controller is completely capable of MST DisplayPort functionality.  Clearly this a driver issue with Apple, Nvidia or Intel or any combination.  What Apple has done here is forcing any professional that desires stable and clear 4K technology through their MacBook Pro Retina to do so only using Windows 8.1 on their own machines!  Definitely an oxymoron if you ask me...
    Later on when the Mac Pro was ready for ordering, Apple placed the Sharp PN-K321 as a compatible option for a 4K Display.  On the Store page featuring the (over three thousand dollar) Sharp 4K display, located here http://store.apple.com/us/product/HD971LL/A/sharp-32-pn-k321-4k-ultra-hd-led-mon itor?fnode=53 Apple states the following:
    "Note that 4K DisplayPort operation is only compatible with the new Mac Pro (Late 2013)."
    All of that being said, and I'm terribly sorry for my wordy ranting...
    This brings me to a final two requests to ANYONE reading this post:
    a) Has anyone working with the new 10.9.2 Beta Update seen evidence that DisplayPort 1.2 capabilities will be enabled for the new MacBook Pro Retina (Nvidia 750M) with the promised "Graphics Driver Updates" within the next Mavericks update?
    and
    b) To others that purchased or were/are thinking of purchasing a new MacBook Pro Retina with TB2 Ports: If you are just as upset as me about this crushing blow to consumers that just purchased a $3,000 laptop that were promised something that wasn't delivered - I urge you please, write to Apple and let them know they are making a mistake.  You can do this though the support page or through http://www.apple.com/feedback
    Thank you for your precious time, and if anyone has anything to contribute to this issue, please jump in....

    GOOD NEWS!
    The Mavericks 10.9.3 update adds official support for Thunderbolt 2, 4K!
    I'm not sure if you will be able to daisy chain anything to the 4K display.  I've read that the design of Thunderbolt 2 includes support for DisplayPort 1.2 multi-stream (MST), which allows this type of daisy chaining with 4K, but we don't know if Apple has this supported on it's machines.  Apparently it's been buggy in development because the graphics driver needs to work correctly with the Thunderbolt 2 host controller.  I'm sure they will work it out if they haven't already.
    The above is all via found information on this topic, but you can follow some more discussion here:
    http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1713876
    One more note on Thunderbolt worth sharing: always keep your fastest peripherals closer to the computer in the chain. If you have a TB1 device directly connected to the computer, anything further down the chain will be limited to TB1 speed/capability regardless of it's native speed.  Always connect TB2 devices first, and save anything TB1 for the end of the chain.

  • I can no longer pick up an app on my Ipad 2. I am up to date and using the correct password.

    Sorry if this is a duplicate. I can not pick up apps any more on my IPad2. I am up to date in Itunes and using correct password.

    What do you mean by "pick an app"? Do you mean the apps don't launch when you tap on them? Download a free app from the App Store. Once it downloads, your other apps should work properly again.

  • I can't be the only one with this issue. MacBook Pro Retina Late-2013 WiFi disconnects after waking up from sleep.

    Did anyone buy a MacBook Pro Retina 13" from Best Buy this Black Friday?
    I'm having an issue where the WiFi disconnects after the MacBook wakes from sleep but only after a couple of minutes.
    Once the WiFi disconnects, I can't reconnect to the same network and sometimes it won't find nearby networks.
    I have to turn off the WiFi and wait for at least 5 seconds before turning it back on for it to auto-reconnect to my home network.
    If I wait less than 5 seconds, it will continue to attempt connection to the home network but won't connect.
    I've tried reformatting and deleting my network configurations as well as resetting my modem, power cycling it, etc.
    I am using 2Wire Gateway modem/router from AT&T on b/g network.
    I've tried connecting to a friend's network under Time Warner Cable and the same issue occurs.
    I exchanged the MacBook at a Best Buy for a brand unopened one (I hope) and the same exact thing happens with this new one.
    Really, I can't be the only one with this issue. Unless in a 0.00001% chance I received two defective units in a row?
    Please.. does anyone have a clue why this is happening?

    You're definitely not the only one.  I have the same issue.  I spent 6 hours over multiple days on the phone with Apple support trying a variety of things (some of which are mentioned above), and none of them worked.  They finally sent me a replacement laptop.  I made sure to try it periodicaly as I was moving files and installing applications to see if I ran into it again and things seemed okay at first but now I am running into the same issue and it is terribly annoying.  I've got 5 other devices that connect to the same router and I've never had this issue with any of them.
    My router is a Linksys E2000.  I haven't tried changing the router channel but I have tried to cnnecting to other networks in the building I live in and I have run into the same issue there.

  • My MacBook Pro that is running on 10.6.8 won't update software so that iTunes connects to my iphone 6. Problem is that when I go to update, it restarts the computer but never updates any of the software.

    My MacBook Pro that is running on Mac OS X 10.6.8 won't update software that I need in order to download the newest iTunes software to connect to my iPhone 6. Problem is that when I go to update, it restarts the computer but never updates any of the software.

    In addition to Stedman's spot-on reply --
    When you buy an upgrade disk, all updates in that OS can be found on Software Update.
    For instance, I bought Snow Leopard at 10.6.
    All other updates have been free and downloadable.  So I'm not a 10.6.7.
    10.4 (Tiger) went to 10.4.11.
    10.5 (Leopard) went to 1.5.8
    10.6(Snow Leopard) is currently at 10.6.7.
    Now, when Lion come out (the next major upgrade of OSX), I will have to pay to go to 10.7.
    After that, updates are free til 10.8 comes out.

  • Resolution issue with macbook pro 13 (late 2013) and dell u2711

    I have a Dell U2711 (native resolution 2560x1440) that I use without issue with a macbook pro late 2007 (running 10.10.x), various iMacs and Macbook air 2011 running 10.10. When I say without issue, the display works at its native resolution.
    Last week we got a MacBook Pro 13in, late 2013 model.
    If I connect this macbook via either thunderbolt connection to the u2711 using either DVI port on the dell, the maximum resolution that I can use is 1920x1080. I am using apple mini displayport to DVI adaptors (I have tried 2 different ones and 2 different DVI cables, with no improvement). Clicking option + scaled in sys prefs does not give the native resolution as an option.
    However, I just discovered that if I use a DVI to HDMI adaptor and I connect the macbook to the display I get the full native resolution without issue (2560x1440).
    I have zapped the pram, powered down the display etc etc etc and it made no difference.
    I would prefer to use the mini DIsplayPort to DVI adaptor rather than HDMI, any suggestions appreciated.
    TIA.

    Thanks, I'm typing this message from an external keyboard borrowed from one of my schools iMac. It is working fine so could this be a serious hardware issue? I upgraded the RAM from 4 gb to 16 gb thinking that would solve the slowness/beachball issue but it didn't. Could it possibly be a faulty SATA cable or time to upgrade my hard drive as well?
    I'm feeling like this is beyond my reach and do not want to damage my MBP further. I'll shut it down and take it to the tech store on campus and hope they have mercy on my wallet. Thanks for the help.

    Help is right here for you Omichael! Let's get you conneted
    to your home wifi. May I ask are you able to connect to other wifi networks? If
    so then please forget your home network again, turn wifi off, reboot, and
    retest. If this doesn't work then you will want to reset network settings.
    Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. Keep in mind that
    this will delete ALL wifi passwords that you have saved.

  • My wife has just had a new iPad and while Wifi works fine with it at home, at work it will not connect to the Wifi despite the correct password being entered. The 'waiting wheel' simply goes round and round next to the Wifi network attempting connection.

    My wife has just had a new iPad and while the Wifi works fine at home, at work she is unable to connect after entering the correct password etc. The 'waiting wheel' simply spins next to the network attempting to connect. The iPad version is 5.1.1 and not the IOS 6 which seems to be problematic on the Wifi front. To add to the mystery my own iPad connects fine to my wife's place of work. Is it possible to take the manual settings from mine and connect that way? Or any other suggestions?

    When your device is trying to connect to the work Wi-Fi network, go to Settings > Wi-Fi > then tap on the name of the Netowrk that she is having trouble with. Then tap on forget this network. Let the device attempt to connect again and make absolutely sure she is trying to connect to the work network and not a nearby network, then make absolutely sure the password is entered correctly.

  • Dear all, I have a MacBook Pro bought in April 2011. Last April, it got stuck while the wheel was spinning and I had to force it shut. That cost me my hard drive. Now, it's stuck again. I tried esc, cmd tab, moving the trackpad on the apple, but no. HELP!

    Dear John,
    thank you for your prompt reply. After I sent the email, I left the wheel spinning to see if it would eventually stop. It didn't, but after a while the screen turned blue, so I decided to switch everything off with a forced shut-down. I could not restart with the OS DVDs because I am currently away from home, but fortunately everything was more or less fine after restarting. It then got stuck again, I forced it shut again, restarted again, and now it seem to work but I won't overdo it and will switch off smoothly after writing this (unless it gets stuck again). Last April I have replaced the HD, so it's now just under 6 months old. And, of course, since the crash occurred when I was abroad and had backed up just before I left, I have lost only a few days' work. Still, and I know this will make me hugely unpopular here, with my 5 previous laptops running on MS Windows I never had a problem. Which does not mean I loved the OS, or I would not have switched to Mac.
    Anyway, and this is the main reason for this message, thank you very much again for your speedy intervention.
    Claudia
