    Purchased a new apple aluminum wired keyboard today from a local apple reseller, however the 'i' key is very temperamental, only working about once every five key pushes.

    Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions, should i try a software update or something or can i try to clean out the key in any way.

    Anyone had or heard of a similar problem???

    Thanks

    Ben

    Pop it off and see if something is in there. If it is clean then return it.

    How do i go about 'popping' off a key from the keyboard, as I don't want to damage it if I might have to return it.

    Should I try and prise it off/up with soemthing or what???

    Thanks!!

    Yep just pry from one of the sides with something that won't scratch.
