Re: repeat keys and back space has pause when typing

- Go to Control Panel -> Keyboard - We have options where we can configure the repeat delay and repeat rate - To configure sounds you can go to Control Panel -> Sounds and Audio Devices -> Sounds Tab - You can configure sounds related to Windows Operations here P.S. Although the settings I have specified here are meant for Win XP (when control Panel is in Classic View), they would remain almost the same for all Windows OS.

When I hold down a key or try to repeat a letter, it will not move without a long pause.

There is a BIOS SETUP configuration, which determines the amount of time (usually 250 milliseconds) before "auto-repeat" starts. Reboot, and enter BIOS SETUP, and configure that value.

My Logitech S510 keyboard is not typing all of the characters I key or repeats one character several times. It is as if there's a delay between keystrokes and what appears on the screen. Same thing happens...

Try running connect MANY times. it may sound goofy, but come to find out I had a new set of cordless phones which used similar freq's. so try to do connect several times.

My key board fell off and the space bar came off Itried puttingit back but it doesnt work

You can easily fix your space bar. I fixed mine last month when my daughter pulled it out of the keyboard. I used this video tutorial guide to help install the space bar key back into place. Its really very simple. have a look:

The number key does not work even after changed the batteries. And the back space button and some of the keys don't work unless you push hard on them.

Look for dirt or grit under the keys, use a can of compressed air to clean out the keyboard. To use the number pad, you have to ensure that the NumLock button has been turned ON.

If the keys still dont seem to work, remove batteries and type randomly over keyboard for about 20secs. Now reinsert the batteries (ensure correct orientation), and reconnect the KB with dongle by pressing the connect button on dongle first and then on the KB. Make sure there is no source of interference nearby, such as speakers, powerful magnets, etc.

If the KB still does not function properly, uninstall and reinstall the software. Still wont function? KB is defective. Contact Logitech regarding an RMA if within the warranty period.

The spacebar doesn't work consistantly unless ''pounded''

The spacebar is the most often used switch on your keyboard, so, yes, it's from overuse, but also from
the fact that it is the longest key on your keyboard and the closest to the edge, all of this combining to
make it the dirtiest key on the board.

So, get a keyboard cleaning kit, either professional or DIY which would consist of the following, cotton
swabs, compressed air, and maybe a toothbrush and realize that all the stuff that accumulates under
your keyboard's space key makes it harder to depress to the point where contact is made.

Sony VGP-WKB1/G keyboard not working properly

Once you have checked the batteries in the keyboard or mouse, then push the tiny little button on the side of the computer around the peripheral plug ins. After pushing that, hit the connect button on the wireless device. They should be re-syncd.
