Question about Logitech MX5000L

2 Answers

The first letter repeats

If my logitech MX5000 cordless keyboard sits idle for a few minutes, the first keystroke I type afterwards is always duplicated, regardless of whether or not it's a letter, number, delete key, etc. It also does not matter which program I am running. I've had this keyboard with two different desktop towers and it does it on both. I downloaded the latest software and nothing changes. I'm running Windows XP. Help!

Re: The first letter repeats

I was having the same problem. When I first got the pair I loved them, then after a few of the Setpoint updates I began having the first letter repeat problem as well as a auto select when I pass over a window or drop down menu. There are two possible solutions Solution 1: Find and download a copy of Setpoint 4.0 . You can install it over your current version but I would recomend unistalling it then installing the new one. MAKE SURE TO TURN OFF YOUR ANTI-VIRUS! Then reboot when asked and that should do it. Solution 2: Unistall Setpoint and WINDCOMM Bluetooth software. Make sure you have a wired mouse and keyboard hooked before you unistall the WINDCOMM or you won't be able to use your keyboard and possibly your mouse. Reboot the machine and let XP install the generic Bluetooth drivers. Your keyboard may not still have all the slick features supplied by Setpoint but it will work properly. This is really more of a workaround and I would suggest Setpoint 4.0 before this. Hope this helps.

Re: The first letter repeats

Go to control panel>priters and other hardware>keyboard, then in the speed tab move cursor to slower side and test in area below. It may stop it from happening, but you would expect it to do it on every keystroke, so it may be sending the first stroke to wake up the keyboard. It may be the keyboard or the sender that is faulty and a replacement to really solve it.

While typing keyboard letters ,it is typed double letters

Go under CONTROL PANEL then KEYBOARD and adjust the sensitivity. It is probably set too high, thus repeating keystrokes.

My keyboard is typing double letters. I have rebooted, changed batteries. But still typing double. reverted to usb keyboard for time being

I had this problem after changing the batteries in Logitech Cordless Internet Pro Keyboard - Model Y-RAJ56A, very frustrating.
I am using a KVM switch that only has PS2 outputs and one of the computers doesn't have PS2 connectors for both keyboard and mouse. This necessitated another mouse & receiver. Receiver will accept both mouse & keyboard but initial installation didn't include pairing the KB with the receiver, it
picked it up from the KVM.
When I changed the batteries in the keyboard I instinctively pushed the buttons to pair the receiver to the keyboard.
Wrong move!
Now the computer is receiving keyboard command from both the former 'mouse only' receiver & the KVM, creating ddoouubbllee letters. After pairing, they refused to be unpaired.
Solution was to go to Control Panel, in Device Management and disable Wireless Keyboard. Now it only receives keystrokes from the KVM.
Problem was solved.

Hope this helps, Plasticman69

I have a new Dell MX5000 revolution keyboard and mouse. The display does not show the time nor will the temperature change from Celius to Farenheit. The keyboard and mouse otherwise work great.

Your Logitech MX5000 requires their SetPoint application software to make those changes. I you do not have it, you can download it HERE. Once the software is installed, the time will sync with your laptop and the temperature setting can be changed within the My Keyboard tab.

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.

Im in an office with three computers that all have wireless keyboards. One of the keyboards keeps typing letters on another computer. How do I stop the signals from being mixed?

I have had a similar problem, when I wanted to run one Microsoft wireless mouse next to my TV and another Microsoft wireless mouse next to the PC in the same room. Both wireless receivers were picking up keystrokes from the keyboard, so the computer thought all keys were being hit twice.

You didn't mention your brand of wireless keyboard, but for microsoft products you push a button on top of the receiver, and then a button on the bottom of the keyboard or mouse to "pair" them. Repeat this step for the computers that are interfering with each other to solve your problem.
