I have the same exact problem: Sims 4 Digital Deluxe on a Windows 7

I closed my Sims 3-still didn't work

also....how many fingers do you need to do Ctrl+Shift+C+1230???

Press the speed control numbers (1-2-3-0) And tell me if they work. If they don't press ESC (Opens the Ingame Menu) and then return to the game, and try CTRL+Shift+C again and the 1-2-3-0 keys too. If nothing works, try going to Origin, Open My Games tab, Right click The Sims 4 and click Repair Game.

Also, you shouldn't return the game just because the cheats window doens't work. Cheats are just an optional thing, not a thing you HAVE to do.

WAIT A SECOND I CAN HELP (sorry if this post is a little late i didn't check the date)

I was having the same problem and I was getting super mad at my computer. I tried all this suggested stuff and it didn't work. I saved the game and closed all my other programs and then shut down my computer, waited about a minute and then turned it back on a resumed. It works fine now. 

Hope this helps!Wondering

My 0,1,2,3 keys are working, but I still can't open the cheat box. I don't have any other sims games, and when I exited to repair the game, it has the words repair game, but their grey instead of black and I can't click on it.

Do you have a screenshot program running in the background that could be interfering ?

The 1-2-3-0 worked what do I do now?

I pressed Esc and nothing happened.

Do I still go to 'repair game'?

If the cheat window is not working, it's mostly another program interfering

 

You need to disable that. Usually it has a EXIT or something on the program to close it but that depends on the program.
