RE: Second generation (A1255) MB167LL/A (3 batteries)
How can I get keyboard to enter pairing mode, where green light flashes on and off until keyboard is paired ?
When I turn keyboard on, green light comes on then goes off, does not flash.
I've held button down until green light goes off indicating keyboard is turned off, but when turned on again it still won't enter flashing light pairing mode.
I've tried fresh batteries and holding down on button continuously to reset keyboard which in past has generated code to type on keyboard as described here - http://davemeehan.com/technology/how-to-reset-an-apple-wireless-bluetooth-keyboard-mouse-or-trackpad
But that won't work now.
Is there some other method I can try to get keyboard to pair?
I should have left it paired with OSX 10.8 on Mac Mini 2012 where it was working, but I tried to pair it with iPad Pro 2018, so I deleted keyboard from bluetooth setup on 10.8 and now can't get it to pair back.
Won't pair to Macbook Pro 2012 running Catalina either, or the iPad Pro 2018.
