iBook Keyboard wedged in

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I just put an extra 256 in the wife's new iBook. Everything went well except the keyboard. Somehow I got it wedged on/in. It needs to come back out and go in right but I don't want to just pry it up.

Any suggestions?

    I had that problem with my iBook when I first got it. Eventually a few keys came off and I couldn't get them back on so I called Apple and got a new keyboard. Keep trying and maybe you'll get it.

    It's worse than I thought. One or more of the keys is getting hit when the screen it down so it goes into this weird wake/sleep/wake/sleep mode when the screen is down.

    I learned how to pop the keys off and on though. Maybe I?ll pop the top row off and see if I can see what?s holding it on. The spring tabs pull back and the board is loose there so it?s wedged in some place else

    Phew! The wife got it up. She was able to grab it in the middle and bend the keyboard a tad so that it lifted right out. When you stick that sucker in you have to make extra sure that it's notched in at the bottom.
