You can contact Kensington's customer service and see whether they will ship you a replacement. As an alternative, you could buy another Kensington Wireless Pilot Board mouse and use its receiver. As a third alternative, you could buy another Kensington wireless mouse or keyboard and see whether the receiver for that will pick up the Pilot Board keyboard. Finally, you could buy another wireless mouse or keyboard (not Bluetooth) and see whether its receiver will pick up the Pilot Board.
The keyboard may have lost connection with the wireless receiver. Take a look at the back of the keyboard. There should be a small recessed button located on the back. The button might be red and say "connect". Once you have found that button you will then need to press the connect button on the wireless receiver. After you press the connect button on the receiver it will be looking for the keyboard to transmit it's frequency. Now press the connect button on the back of the keyboard while you are close to the receiver. When you press the button on the back of the keyboard watch for any light activity on the receiver. You should see some when the keyboard connects to the receiver. After this the keyboard should be connected to the receiver and working properly. If you have a wireless mouse and it is also not working you can repeat the same process with it. It will also have a small recessed connect button on it.
If it does not connect you will want to verify that there is nothing near by that might be interfering with the signal like a wireless phone, baby monitor ect. Sometimes these devices can interfere with the signal.
Let me know if this works or if you have any other questions and thanks for using FixYa.
Ah, wireless keyboards and mice...
The problem with using most wireless electronics in applications as sensitive as computer use, is that so many things share a close proximity of frequencies. Many wireless routers use 2.4 ghz frequency, as do many cordless phones. Interruptions in wireless products are, unfortunately, a part of the deal as of yet. This 'could' be making it miss a key.
Keyboards are also notorious for allowing a very low number of buttons to be active at one time. It may be that your typing speed and style has you accidentally pushing more buttons than the keyboard allows periodically.
It could be a defect, a not perfect connection on the 'board' of the keyboard that doesn't line up perfectly every time a key is pressed. Only expect this if the same key(s) repeatedly miss.
Lastly, it could be that you're just not used to the tension and feel of the keyboard yet. I know it took me awhile to get used to my laptop keyboard when I first bought it, after using the same desktop keyboard for near 5 years!
Hope my answer was inclusive and conclusive enough. Happy Holidays!
That keyboard is not wireless, it is cabled to the computer. If you are looking h=to have your computer connect to the internet using wireless, you need to have a wireless access point connected to a cable modem or DSL, as well as a wireless network card in the computer.
on this key boards problem is that they key pad circuit board has no mechanical connection or wire connection it merely lays across the circuit board loosing contact that's why if you squeeze the bach it starts working again
Changed the setting of the keyboard and reconfigure the key board layout in control pannel.... If required update the drivers for the keyboard... if thet does not resolves the issue run a system restore
Go to Control Panel.
1. Click on Keyboard.
2. When the Keyboard Properties come up, CLICK on Key Settings.
3. Then set up the keys by selecting the Key to be changed.
Hope this will help some. Bud
