Wireless Keyboard and Mice not working - Easy Steps to Fix It

Most of the times when we have a Wireless Keyboard and Mice , we do face frequent issues when the device would stop functioning.
Here below are 3 easy steps to diagnose and fix it

1. Re-establish the wireless connection: Press the Connect button on the keyboard/mice(turn the device upside down and you will be able to see the connect button) and press the connect button on the reciever together.
Release both the buttons together.
This would re-establish the connection and the device would start working.
If not, move to the next step

2. Take out the battery and insert back in and check. If still the same issue, replace with a new set of batteries.

3. In case both the above fail, then its the device going at fault. If within warranty contact the manufacturer and get them replaced else time to get new keyboard and mice.

If you find the information shared by me in the above tip useful, please do rate the tip.
All the Best!!!

Zagg keyboard doesnt work

Mine went dead after about 3 weeks. Once I realized there was a charging port which is not IPhone, but droid type. Began charging. Would not recognize until I went to blue tooth setting and said forget device. Then turn bluetooth on and then hold bluetooth key down on for 3 seconds or so on keyboard. Then it worked. I guess dont let it run till it dies.

My Microsft Wireless Comfort Keyboard 4000 is not registering letters when the key is struck. New Batteries installed. Completely random and frequent.

if you are using it with a laptop, they have issues where the USB port can not power the reciever. If that is the case, i would recommend a powered USB hub. Otherwise, completely remove all of the software, take out all of the batteries, reboot the PC, install the software again and repair the devices.

mouse and keyboard frequently stop working despite good batteries-it can take ages to reconnect

There is nothing much you could for this kind of issue.
Just check the battery which you have already done and connect.
The other thing you can try is to open the keyboard and check for any loose connection.
