Hi Apple Folks


I don't know why some keys of my iMac keyboard stop working after not using the iMac Mid 2007 for a while.


It is a Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad, still looks like brand new. There is no any physical damage to the keyboard, the iMac and the keyboard just left there not in use for two years.


The bad keys are ESC, TAB, CAPS LOCK, DELETE , \, and RETURN of the character keys area, also the 0 on keypad. All the other keys work perfectly as they were.


Per an Apple KB article, i have confirmed these bad keys by using the Keyboard and Character Viewer of OS X.


Any hints to fix the keys please?


Kind regards,


iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
