Question about Saitek PZ30AU Keyboard

1 Answer

Love my new Saitek Keyboard, but I don't what some of the buttons do???

Hi: On the top of the Saitek Keyboard, there are three buttons: a "1", an "A" and a "Down Arrow Icon". When the keyboard is on, the "1" button is lit up blue, not the other two. Above the numeric pad are four silver round buttons. The first three have an icon representing sound, looks like they represent different sound levels. The last round button on the right as a "lightbulb" logo. I just pressed the lightbulb button and it turns the blue light on and off on all the keys. Cool. I really like this keyboard, but would like to know the purpose of these buttons. Thanks so much for your help! Joyce

You can download a manual here: http://www.saitek.com/manuals/eclipse_manual.pdf For the 1, A, and Down Arrow: My guess is that these are actually the indicator lights for Num Lock, Caps Lock, and Scroll Lock. For the four silver round buttons: The top right corner of your Eclipse keyboard features a set of controls for changing your computer?s audio volume and the brightness of the Eclipse Keyboard?s backlighting. To reduce audio volume, press button A until the desired volume level is reached. To increase volume, press button B. To mute the audio output, press button C and press it again to cancel mute. Press button D to control the brightness of the backlighting. Press the button to scroll through lights off, lights full brightness and lights half brightness.

On Saitek eclipse II illuminated keyboard: What is function of the 1 (above the f8), the A (aboveF9) and the down arrow between F10 and F11) Also the function of the dey on bottom row between the windows...


Hi,

The 1, A and down arrow represent the usual Num Lock active, Caps Lock active and Scroll lock on option available on all keyboards out there.

The 'dey' key on the bottom between the Windows Key and the Ctrl acts as a right mouse button, as in opening the menu you would open with the right mouse click.

Hope it helps.

Your Keyboard keys is just dirty inside ; try opening it up and cleaning it up -- the circuits and touch detection underneath they key could just be misdetecting the "`" on the left of the "1" key and "2" key

What adaptor must have for my computer? the joystik have not usb.


Hi,
I too have this exact same joystick so when I tried to plug it into my new pc (that I built 2 yrs ago as of Feb.14,11) I had to use a: 15-pin to USB adapter with chord.
I got it from eBay.ca in the $5-$10 range shipped to me from Chnia.

It's called the: Super Joy Box 7 USB Gameport Adatper

They are still available from eBay.ca & eBay.com as of Dec.06,10 (the time of writing this posting).

For me it wokrs, but only 1/2 - as in:
- the fire button + 3 other buttons - work fine
- the HAT switch (4-way) - refuses to work
- the full range of the joysticks motions are reduced (on the right side)

Because of these limitations I had to learn to used the keyboard buttons to fly planes & choppers in the pc game - GTA:SA.
I plan to buy the pc game GTA4 as soon as it goes down in price of it's current $20 & buy a...

Saitek Eclipse Keyboard Keys stopped working


this could very well be your OS as much as your keyboard. Try another board for a few days and see if it still happens. IF not...you found your culprit. Replace the keyboard or look for updated drivers if they exist.

Are the keys working?
If the keyboard is doing absoloutly nothing, then it may have drawn too much current from the USB port and shorted it out.

Try something else in the USB port and see if that is working correctly like a flash drive/mouse etc

Keyboard has a mind of its own


HAHAHA. This is old but i found out what the problem is. Hope this helps some people. All you have to do is press the illumination button at the top right of your keyboard until the keyboard backlighting is turned off and now the keyboard no longer randomly types.

Repeating key - cause unknown


No solution here, but I'd like to second that I have a Saitek 1st gen keyboard. One day it began exhibiting the same problems that you are having. When moved to another computer it seemed to work for a month or so but then started acting up again. For my keyboard, it repeats the letters "a" "s" "m" and others. Not sure what is causing it. No spills on the keyboard and it is fairly clean.

Saitek Eclipse II Lighted Keyboard


Changing the default colour involves a little dis-mantling. remove the screws from the back of the board. Carefully remove the rubber feet inserts too as there are 4 more screws under there. Now remove the top section of the keyboard (the bit with the keys) Lay the board down flat and you will notice where the usb cable comes in a circuit board. this has a connector with 4 wires attached to it on the left hand side. the wires are coloured red, grey, blue and black. Remove the connector and swap over the Blue and Red wires. Re assemble the keyboard after reattaching the connector to the circuit board being VERY careful not to overtighten the screws. Now at boot up the keyboard will by default be red.
