A late 2011 13-inch MacBook pro has suddenly developed a keyboard problem.
Keys 7, u, j and m no longer work.
When I use keyboard viewer, those keys work fine so I assume it's the keys on the keyboard itself that no longer work.
I'm going to take a look at the keyboard ribbon cable to see if that maybe the problem, but if not, I was looking for a replacement keyboard for that Mac.

Ebay brought up nothing which I found a bit surprising, but amazon.ca shows a few including this one:

Question to the group - has anyone used one of these Padarsey replacement keyboards?
If so - what is the verdict?
I never heard of the company before.

There is also a replacement keyboard by Sunmall

Same question as above
