Microsoft Wireless Laser 6000 v2 Keyboard-keeps dropping out character as I type

You guys were so great "diagnosing" my coffee maker issues....try this one: When I start typing things appear correct...but after a few sentences, I see my paragraphs end up looking like they are being encryted as I type! Some odd form of shorthand occurs. (You have no idea what I've had to go through just to type/edit/backspace/retype to get this to be a readible message!) I reset everything. Change the batteries. It seems like there is a key I must hit when typing that has a metafunction tied to it...because once it starts dropping out the characters, I cannot fix it. I love my wireless, but this is insane. To ad insult to injury...I have another system set up for my kids...and their keyboard never does this. Help!

I have a Microsoft Wireless Notebook Laser Mouse 6000 that also has a very short range. The only solution I've found so far is to plug the receiver into a USB extention cord and run the cord toward the mouse.

It means, your batteries are dead so need to be replaced on keyboard once you replace those the you got to turn it on and once lights comes up then you to to press wireless button for 5 seconds.
once it starts blinking then you got to press wireless button of receiver (bluetooth stack) and once it blinks then your keyboard should be detected automatically.

please post back if any thing changes and vote all answers.

Good Luck.

Microsoft wireless laser keyboard 6000 v2.0 keyboard not working


You have to press the button on the receiver that is directly connected to the computer. While doing this, press the connect button both the mouse and the keyboard. I did this and now my keyboard is working, despite the battery indicator turning itself off a few seconds after I install it.

Hope this solves your problem.
