I've had that happen when I've added some newer rev SIPs. The newer ones come with a notice to load the 2161DS with versions 2.0.13 or newer firmware; by unplugging the new SIPs and leaving just the older ones (and I'm at a loss as to the exact revisions) I got back the OSCAR prompts. Plug the SIPs back in one at a time, and they would display, but once the session timed out, the key sequence would do nothing once again. Don't know if this is what you have, but I do know that certain SIPs can interact with your firmware to cause this symptom - my bigger problem now, is that when I try to update with the newer firmware (d2_0_13_english.fl) I get a message: "Unable to upgrade the firmware. Reason: Incompatible file."

On model f1de108c, what does error code E7 mean? Yes I'm a newbe.


If you have this KVM device hooked up to a master surge or surge protector:

  • Power it down
  • Unplug the all kvm cables
  • Unplug power cable
  • Check the DIP switches and make sure they are all set to OFF position
  • Re-connect the power cable only
  • Press and hold the + and - buttons together for 30 seconds
The Bank Display should read, "15".
If it does not, then check to see if you are using converters or adapters on the KVM and/or Server End.
If you are, you'll need to remove them.

Next
  • Unplug the power cable
  • Set all the DIP switches to ON
  • Re-connect the power cable
  • Press and hold the + and - buttons for 30 seconds again.
  • Bank Display should be set to "00".
  • Unplug the power cable
  • Connect your VGA, Kybrd, and mouse cable
You should now check and see the OSD coming up on the screen.
To get into the On-Screen Display (OSD) menu, press SCROLL LOCK, SCROLL LOCK,
SPACEBAR on your keyboard.

You should be able to see your master or server computer on the list.

Well the adapters are the main cause, its not that they do not work, but most of the times it causes the KVM to malfunction, hence not recommended. Apart from that if the KVM is connected to a surge master it causes the error.
But not to worry, now that we have reset the KVM it should not be a problem.
The + and - buttons actually releases the static current from the KVM.

Have a great day!

What are the keystrokes for a dell 582rr kvm?


Have you tried pressing Ctrl twice and then the port you want to control? I can't find the exact answer for you but here are few more;
1. Scroll lock twice and the port number you want to assign.
2. Numlock twice and the port number.
Same sequence as done with Ctrl key. (press Ctrl key twice and the desired port number).
Hope one of these will definitely work for you.
Good luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I am looking for the hotkey combination for our HP 336044-b21 KVM switch from a iogear KVM?


IOGEAR KVM switches uses Scroll Lock for the hot key. The models of IOGEAR KVM switches starts the letters "GCS". I don't think that your HP 336044-b21 came from IOGEAR.

Anyway, if that's an IOGEAR KVM switch, you may quickly press Scroll Lock twice + Enter (for two port KVM).

Scroll Lock twice + port # + Enter (for 4 port, or 8 port KVM).

NOTE: You need to verify the brand of your KVM switch by referring to the user manual of it.

Thank you and good luck!
