George. I'd like to add my thanks for your post nearly two years ago! When BT keyboard stopped working suddenly I too struggled to find out what was up. After reading your post I twigged it wasn't discoverable – no blinking green light and I put two and two together – my keyboard had been paired with my son's iPad upstairs for three days! Kind regards, Stephen, London

Thanks very much. The BT KB can stay stuck in the paired mode even when the computer has
changed its mind.
In my case, I had to walk away 50 feet, pull out the batteries, put batteries back in, then power on BT KB. Finally went into discovery mode.
I wonder if one could just turn off BT on computer rather than walk away until out of range?

Thanks very much for the advice for the wireless keyboard. Took mine outside and got the flashing light.
Worked like a charm.

I've done this more than once: Used my wireless keyboard with my iPad, then left the iPad on while trying to use the keyboard with my iMac. Of course it can't be paired with two devices simultaneously, so the solution, as always, is to turn the iPad off (or get another keyboard$$$).

Thank you George, two years later and it still works like a charm!

I'd like to add my thanks for the tip. I was ready to throw the keyboard out the window!

George . . . that worked great. I had the same issue as you and took my keyboard for a walk and shazam . . . it's back. Thanks for posting.

Thanks for the info! This solved my frustration as well. I was ready to chuck this keyboard as bricked, but this solution worked like a charm! Thanks very much.

Thank goodness for the solution George! I can't log in to my iMac due to Bluetooth keyboard is not paired plus it has a password. There's no way I could pair the keyboard. I have no choice, I bought the cheapest ($5 w/ coupon) wired keyboard I could find. Then I got frustrated when I can't pair the Bluetooth keyboard after trying so many times. It just won't go into "discoverable" mode until I saw this! Now everything's ok, I'm thinking I could still return my wired keyboard but.. I thought it would be my best investment if something will happen again in the future.
