    Hey all,

    wondering if anyone might know what the issue is here. Late 2009 macbook 13in unibody. All the keys working fine in uppercase (capitals) but 4 keys (5,t,g,b) when in lower case are either not working or typing random letters numbers signs (ie: LiUoo%6*bn)

    i attached an external keyboard and lowercase works fine so not a text to speech issue

    Is this a shorted out issue as i think? As all keys are in a diagonal line. As i said, what confuses me is the keys all works fine with caps on.

    will it just take a new topcase? How much does this cost to repair (in the UK btw)

    any replies greatly appreciated.

    No, purchased second hand with a 3 month warranty.

    The only thing I can suggest is that you make an appointment with an Apple genius and cross your fingers they will do it FOC.
