Question about Raritan KVM Switches

Master Console II console lights keep blinking

I have 4 different computers connected to a KVM-Switch. Unfortunately, when I turn the switch on, all the leds start blinking and the monitor displays a "NO SIGNAL" message.

I tried to disconnect all the computers but one and it stayed the same, I couldn't access it.

Any help would be really appreciated.

Many thanks in advance,
Bernardo

    Dave,

    If the said connection was jarred loose, would it make the leds in the front panel of the Master Console blink like crazy? I am not near the equipment right now, so I can't do any kind of tests. However, I think it wasn't loose, since the connectors were screwed to the body of the MC II.

    Thanks for your fast reply!

    Regards,
    Bernardo

Bernardo,

you said you tried disconnecting all of the Computers, did you check the MONITORS connection to the KVM? Perhaps it had gotten jarred loose.

Hopefully this helps you, if not please post a comment and I will try to further assist

Thanks
Dave

    Bernardo,



    I Believe the lights you are referring to are activity lights(Without knowing the exact model I cant say for certain) but their contant blinking I believe indicates activity from the PC attached to that switch.



    They should be blinking if they are recieving a signal from that PC.



    Your problem indicates that the Monitor is not recieving the signal, thus the most likely culprit would be the monitors connection to the KVM.



    Let me know if this works for ya.

    If not comment here and I'll try to narrow it down futher

Avocent KVM switch keeps turning off and on, blinking, then turning itself off again. Is it in a display mode??? When it comes up, it will display the video output from the computer. KVM...


the switch should beep if you switch between channels or Ports.

It seems that you might want to download the manual and try to reset the unit. If this doesn't work call their support. Avocent has free support as far as I know.

New IOGear GCS632U KVM inop


First, disconnect the KVM switch from the computer(s). Disconnect also the keyboard and mouse from the KVM switch, including speakers (if there is). Leave the KVM disconnected for 5 minutes.

Before you reconnect the KVM switch, make sure that the computers are turned off. Re-connect the KVM switch to the computers, and then reconnect the keyboard and mouse.

Turn on the first computer, followed by the second one. If you are still not getting any light indicator, then the KVM switch is dead.

You may contact IOGEAR through 866-946-4327.

Thank you for using FixYa!

Have a GCS634U KVM that keeps failing to switch. acts like it lost the keyboard


This GCS634U was designed to work with USB keyboards and mice.

First, you need to make sure that your using a direct USB keyboard (no PS/2 to USB adapter).

Second, connect the keyboard directly to the computer and make sure that it's working correctly.

Third, check the connection between the KVM switch and the computers. Try to connect the USB cables of your KVM into different USB ports of the computers.

Last, try to use different USB keyboard to see if the issue is the KVM or the keyboard.

Try to power cycle the KVM switch. Disconnect the KVM from the computers and make sure that there's no even one cable connected to the computers.

Leave the KVM switch disconnected for 10 minutes, then plug it back in. Reboot one computer first and wait until it's fully rebooted. Turn on the second one untill all computers are fully booted up.

If same problem occur, then you need to contact IOGEAR and have them RMA the device.

Thank you and good luck!

KVM will only switch one way


Please make sure that the keyboard is hooked up on the KB port of the KVM. check underneath the GCS632U for the correct console port. you will see a keyboard and mouse icon. Make sure that the keyboard is connected to the keyboard port. tap scroll lock key twice to switch between computers.

Mouse and keyboard not recognized on second computer


Solution for the mouse. I have 8 KVM's. Most of my computers work with the KVMs. On 1 inland KVM the logitect and Microsoft optical mice do not work on one computer (but work with the other computers). They both are USB. I hook them up with a USB to PS2 adapter. If I use a ps2 ball mouse connected to the KVM the mouse works. All the Mice work if I directly connect them. Since I do not want a ball mouse I got a Frisby optical PS2 mouse. It works with all the computers on the KVM's.

I do not have a solution for the Keyboard yet. 1 computer (ASUS MB) on my trendnet or belkin 4 postion KVM does not recognize the keyboard.

Belkin (F1DK102P) 2-port KVM Switch freezes


We have the same model and the same problem. The scroll lock combo did not work for us. You need to press Ctrl, Ctrl then up or down arrow.

The manual was a load of old Tom *** as it did not mention this.

Cannot switch between PC's


Typically, the KVM indicator light will only light up on the connection that is currently active. The indicator light will switch to another connection when that connection becomes active. First I would make sure that all the mouse and keyboard connections are secure. I have seen where these sometimes pop out, and thus some componenty will not work. I would then make sure that all the computers are fully powered on. The KVM will not allow you to switch to a device if it is not powered on. The KVM may indicate that a connection is down by a blinking light if you switch to a port and the connection is not up. It sounds that you have atleast one good set of cables. I would confirm that the other sets of cables are good as well. Do this by swapping the other cables with the one port that you know you have working. Finally, with a set of good working cables, swap them over to the other ports on the KVM switch. Although it may be improbable, you may have a bad KVM. AS always, I would review the product manual here: http://web.belkin.com/support/download/files/P74711ea_F1DJ10x_man.pdf And, since this is a new product, you will also be entitled to free tech support from Belkin: http://web.belkin.com/support/phonenumbers.asp?pge=bro 1-800-2BELKIN x2263
