    I think I know what the problem is, I am missing the USB that goes INTO the receiver...I only have the mini receiver with the USB that goes into the PC, but there should be another USB that goes into the mini receiver..great...now I have to find out where they bought this

Attach one end (small end) of the usb cable to the receiver and the other end to the PC's USB port. If the receiver and the Mice needs batteries make sure you have placed the batteries correctly. Also make sure the Receiver & the mice may have a turn on/off switch is set to ON postion. Once you plug in the receiver to PC it will install on it own & will say 'ready to Use' and you should be good.

Keyboard does not type


If all the keys on the keyboard have stopped functioning follow the instructions below to reconnect the keyboard.

This problem is likely to be a lost connection. The connection between the mouse and the USB mini-receiver or the keyboard and the USB mini-receiver can be lost due to several reasons such as:
  • Low batteries
  • Moving the USB mini-receiver from one USB port to another
  • Moving the USB mini-receiver to another computer
  • Plugging the USB mini-receiver into a USB hub or other unsupported device such as a KVM switch (your USB mini-receiver must be plugged directly into your computer)
  • Using your cordless mouse/keyboard on metal surfaces
  • Radio frequency (RF) interference of more powerful wireless devices such as:
    • Wireless speakers
    • Computer power supplies
    • Monitors
    • Cellular telephones
    • Garage door openers
Eliminate any problem sources mentioned above that might be affecting your devices.

Follow the procedures below to reconnect your mouse and keyboard.
  1. Make sure the USB mini-receiver is directly and securely plugged into a working USB port on your computer.
  2. Make sure the mouse is turned on. The on/off indicator on the bottom of the mouse should be green. If the on/off indicator is not illuminated, press and hold the red connect button on the bottom of the mouse until the on/off indicator is green.

  3. Press and release the red connect button on the underside of the USB mini-receiver. This will broadcast a signal to your mouse. This broadcast will last only a few seconds, so you must perform the next step quickly.

  4. Quickly press the red connect button on the bottom of the mouse for 1 second, then release it. The power indicator will flash briefly and then turn green. The mouse is now connected to the receiver.

    Red Connect Button NOTE: Holding down the red button on the mouse for more than 2 seconds may cause your mouse to turn off instead of connecting. If this occurs, start again at step number 2.
  5. Move your mouse to see if the cursor moves. If the cursor follows the mouse movements, your mouse is now connected.
  6. Press and release the red connect button on the underside of the USB mini-receiver. This will broadcast a signal to your keyboard. This broadcast will last only a few seconds, so you must perform the next step quickly.

  8. You will hear a short beep. The keyboard is now connected to the receiver.
  9. Test your keyboard to see if it is working. If the mouse now works but the keyboard still does not, see Knowledge Base article 9144.

Unable to connect Logitech cordless keyboard


Of course you know to press the connection button on the receiver then on the keyboard. Since setPoint is recognizing the connection I wonder do the multimedia and function keys work? Do you have the the USB receiver for the KB/Mouse plugged into a hub or KVM switch? If so plug it directly into the back of the PC. See this KB http://logitech-en-amr.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/logitech_en_amr.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=9247

Hi...

You're probably going to need a Desktop USB Extension stand or cable if, I assume, you have your keyboard USB Receiver plugged into the back USB port of your desktop. These extension stands often come with your cordless devices (i.e., I got one with my Logitech cordless mouse... I don't need it for my laptop, but I do when using my desktop PC). You can make your own extension by purchasing a "Male-to-Female" USB extension cable, 3 to 6 ft in length (or longer if you need it). Plug the cable into your desktop, place the female end of the cable near where your keyboard is, and plug your keyboard USB receiver into the female USB socket of your extension cable.

Hope this helps!
