Keyboard on Permanent Repeat - stuck keys?!
My A1260 MBP seems to periodically have an issue where the space bar will act like it is being pressed down when in actuality it is not. It makes a repeating "ding" sound. This laptop is used as a desktop so the display is always shut and an monitor is connected to it. It hasn't been taken out in ages.
I have an external Bluetooth keyboard connected so I thought that was the issue but the issue persists even when the keyboard is disconnected. Firmly tapping the MBP space bar temporarily stops it but the problem seems to resurface again down the line spontaneously without the space bar even being pressed.
I have tried creating a second user account and logging out while the issue is active but then get a bunch of dots on the password field and the dinging sound (again).
I am thinking this is going to require a replacement of the top case. Or would replacing the keyboard be the better/cheaper route? Any suggestions?
Is this a good question?
