Cordless mouse and keyboard only work within three feet of sensor
I've been using my S510 cordless keyboard and mouse for almost a year. I've been sitting about 10 feet away from the sensor. Last night they quit working from that distance and now they work unreliably and only within three feet of the sensor. I recently enabled the secure feature on the keyboard. I tried to disable it but the keyboard doesn't show up on set point any more.

To reset the iTouch so that it connects afresh to the USB receiver, there's a small inset button below the keyboard (and another under the mouse). Try keeping it at around three feet from the receiver when you do that; sometimes, too near does not work very well, and of course too far won't work at all. For the mouse, you will probably need a pin or a ballpoint pen to be able to press the button.
I have this same keyboard/mouse set and love/hate it when the batteries die. After you change the batteies, power on your pc, press & hold the connect button on the bottem of the keyboard first and then the connect button on the transmitter. Release them and wait for a few seconds. Repeat the same steps for the mouse.
When I have connection issue with this keyboard after new batteries, I have found most of the time the problem is the connection to the pc and/or batteries in wrong. Good Luck
Turn the mouse over and find the small rest/connect button
on the bottom of the mouse and press it. This should connect the mouse to
the receiver and work properly. If not, try pressing the receiver button
and then press the button on the mouse. This should be done whenever you
change batteries or glitch. Hope this helps you. Bud
I am assuming since you need batteries that the mouse is cordless. If so you normaly have to sync the mouse with the receiver.If the keyborad and mouse came as a package it will only have one receiver.There should be corresponding sync buttons for these devices.

Actually your keyboard is not getting connected, So first you
put your keyboard straight with the sensor & push the keboard sensor button which is botom of the keboard it will detect the keboard after that you can work.
When I bought my s510 recently I couldn't use the function keys even with the software that came with the keyboard and mouse.
I had to actually download new logitech software for the s510 which allowed me to use the function/extra keys.

On the right hand side of the screen you will see 'Support Center' below it click 'Downloads,' From there you can choose your OS w98 and language and download the software you need to get your keyboard working the way it should.
