Single keys of my keyboard don´t work anymore?

Hi my iBook G4 has a little problem with some of the keys. The keys "sound off", "3", "e" and "d" do not work anymore. I connected an external keyboard and everything works great.

Any ideas what could be broken? Would it be enough to just change the whole keyboard?

Thanks, Anna

If there are some keys that are not working then the solution is to replace the keyboard. Replacing the keyboard on that model iBook is fairly simple. Here is a link that I found from ifix:

Hope this helps!

Occasionally this can be corrected by re-seating the keyboard cable to the board, i.e. just pulling it out and connecting it again. Most likely you'll need a new keyboard, but this solves the problem often enough that it's worth trying.

Also, you can get them for about $12 on eBay.
