I have an old Apple wireless keyboard Vintage 2007. I pulled off all the keys to give it a thorough cleaning with a dampened cloth.

I replaced all the keys and my iMac recognizes the keyboard but none of the keys work and even the light for caps lock doesn't light up.

Any suggestions? Before you ask, it is turned on and has new batteries.
