How to Change Batteries in iMac Keyboards
The iMac, a computer made by Apple, combines a flat-panel, backlit LED screen with an optical drive, processor, hard drive, speakers and camera into a single unit. The iMac comes with a wireless keyboard that is powered by two AA batteries and pairs with the iMac using Bluetooth. When the keyboard runs low on power, you will see a message on the iMac screen indicating that you need to replace the batteries. You can easily replace them with new AA alkaline, lithium or rechargeable AA batteries.
Things You'll Need
Pick up the wireless keyboard and turn it over.
Press the "Power" button to turn it off.
Insert a coin into the slot on the battery compartment cover and turn it counter-clockwise to open it.
Slide the batteries out of the compartment.
Insert two fresh batteries, with the plus end facing inward.
Place the battery compartment cover back in place, insert a coin into its slot and turn it clockwise to tighten it.
Press the "Power" button to turn the keyboard back on. The indicator light will glow, and the keyboard will pair with the iMac.
Tips & Warnings
- Replace both batteries at the same time whenever you change the batteries of your iMac keyboard, and use the same kind and brand.
