Meaning of indicator lights on wireless receiver

I recently installed the microsoft wireless desktop receiver 3.1 but can't find any documentation to what the indicator lights "A, 1 and F" mean when they are lit. Initially for first several days after installation only indicator light "1" was lit, but now both lights "1" and "F" are lit. Can you advise?

I concur 2/3's with yooperbud.

1 = System is connected and working
A = Cap locks On= Cap lock is on. Off = Cap lock is off.
F = Function Key usage. On = I'm going to use the alternative fuctions of the F keys as programmed in the Keyboard settings. Off = Your using the standard features of the F keys.

Okay, "1" & "F" are normally on when working properly. "A" comes on when ever you click on Caps Lock. "1" is the mouse, "F" Is the Keyboard light and if you pull out the batteries from the keyboard the light will go out. Give it a try . Bud

1 = Light turns On and Off by clicking "Num Lock" key on Keyboard.
A = Light turns On and Off by clicking "Caps Lock" key on Keyboard.
F = Light turns On and Off by clicking "F Lock" key on Keyboard.
Those three lights are indicators of functioning mode of those three keys on keyboard.

Microsoft wireless desktop receiver 3.1. All 3 light stay on!?!?


using a manual keyboard and mouse, make sure the driver is installed. then, remove and reinsert the wireless receiver, and wait for windows to find it. Next, on the wifi devices, scan for signal. If that fails, reboot and try again. Sadly, this is typical of any blue tooth kb and mouse set. it either works very well, or not at all. Thats why i put my money into standard wired equipment.

MS optical desktop 700


try one of the method below:
Method 1: Try different ports loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); Warning If you have to change a PS/2 connection, shut off the computer, make the changes, and then restart the computer. Do not plug a PS/2 device in the PS/2 port while the computer is running.

To determine whether the problem is related to the ports on the computer, use only the two cables that are included with the wireless desktop receiver, or the single cable that is included with a mouse.
USB keyboard and USB mouse loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); If the USB cable is currently connected to a USB hub, disconnect the device from the hub, and then connect it to a USB port on the computer. If your device is already connected to a USB port on the computer, try to connect the device to a different USB port if one is available.

Note Only one USB connection to the computer is required, even if your device has two USB plugs. If the problem persists, disconnect other USB devices and connect only the USB plug from the receiver to a USB port on the computer.
PS/2 devices loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); If your devices are connected to PS/2 ports on the computer, verify that you have the following configurations: • Verify that the USB plug for your mouse is connected to the green USB-to-PS/2 adapter and that this adapter is plugged in the mouse PS/2 port on the computer. The mouse PS/2 port on the computer may also be green. If you are not sure which PS/2 port is the mouse PS/2 port, see the documentation that came with the computer. • Verify that the USB plug for the keyboard is connected to the purple USB-to-PS/2 adapter and that this adapter is plugged in the keyboard PS/2 port on the computer. The keyboard PS/2 port on the computer may also be purple. If you are not sure which PS/2 port is the keyboard PS/2 port, see the documentation that came with the computer.If you have to change your configuration, shut off the computer, make the changes, and then restart the computer. If your mouse or keyboard has both USB and PS/2 connections, try using the other connection.
PS/2 keyboard and USB mouse loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); Verify that the USB mouse is plugged in a USB port on the computer and that the purple keyboard PS/2 plug is connected to the purple PS/2 port on the computer. If you have to change the PS/2 connection, shut off the computer, make the changes, and then restart the computer.

Method 2: Install fresh batteries loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); Both the wireless keyboard and the wireless mouse rely on AA alkaline batteries for power. If the problem persists, install a fresh set of batteries in the device that you are experiencing problems with.
uparrow.gifBack to the top
Method 3: Resynchronize your device to the receiver loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To resynchronize the mouse or keyboard to the receiver, follow these steps.

Note When you synchronize the mouse or the keyboard with the receiver, put the device near the receiver and put other wireless keyboards and mouse more than six feet away. 1. Press the button on the receiver, and then verify that the light on the receiver starts to blink. 2. If a dialog box appears on the screen in several seconds, follow the instructions that appear on the screen.

Otherwise, go to the next step. 3. Press and release the Connect Channel button on the bottom of your mouse or keyboard. 4. Check the green light on the receiver. A steady green light means the synchronization was successful. If the problem persists, try steps 1 through 4 again.

Method 4: Install the latest software loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); If you are troubleshooting a wireless mouse, download and install the latest Microsoft IntelliPoint software. For more information about IntelliPoint software, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/mouseandkeyboard/Download.mspx (http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/mouseandkeyboard/Download.mspx) If you are troubleshooting a wireless keyboard, download and install the latest Microsoft IntelliType software.

Method 5: Clean the mouse lens loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); This problem may occur if you are using an optical or laser mouse and the lens on the mouse is dirty. To clean the lens of an optical or laser mouse, follow these steps: 1. Use a dry cloth to clean the bottom surface of the mouse. 2. Check to see whether the mouse functions correctly. 3. If you see dust on the bottom of the mouse, use a can of pressurized de-ionized air to blow away the dust on the lens. 4. Check to see whether the mouse functions correctly. 5. If the pressurized air canister is not available, blow dry air on the lenses by using your mouth one or two times. 6. Check to see whether the mouse functions correctly. 7. If these steps do not resolve the problem, use a cotton bud to clean the lens without scratching it.
