How do you type characters when setting up your email etc.


You will discover the @ character above the apostrophe on the r/h side of the keyboard. Press and hold down the shift key and all the dual purpose keys will become the alternative characters as printed on the keys.

The dot or full stop, or period as the Americans call it, is at the bottom r/h of the keyboard and the shift key isn't needed.

Have a new wireless HP keyboard for all in one omni 100, keys do not correspond on screen with keyboard, have tried adding different language keyboards in regions to no avail, what am I doing wrong_+(* ...


It's possible that you have hit the Num Lock key while you had another key pressed. Try the following combinations, one at a time, to see if any of them work. Be sure to test each one before moving on to the next one.

CTRL and NUM LK
Shift and NUM LK
ALT and NUM LK

A lot of times characters will swap places if one of these combinations has been pressed, and pressing the combination again should switch it back. Let me know how it goes! If this doesn't work, we'll try something else.

There are torquoiise characters on my keys, how do I get them to work.


There is a key in the bottom left of the keyboard, next to the Ctrl key, with Fn in the same colour.
Press and hold, then the extra characters will appear with the other keys.

I have a TE-2000 cash register and find the instruction manual very complicated. Could you please advise on how to programme a logo message, commercial message and bottom message. Thanks in advance.


Turn your key to PGM enter 2 subtotal enter 0132 and press subtotal now you enter your 21 or 24 characters for the first line and press CA or the lower right hand button. Now enter 0232 and press subtotal and again enter characters and press CA or the lower right hand button.
Follow this for 4 lines and when all done press Subtotal.
I believe the register you have will show you the characters on the keyboard and just use those to make your logo.

GENERIC KEYBOARD ALPHA KEYS DO NOT WORK PROPERLY


Numbers do though? If this is the case, try a different keyboard. If the keys are outputting different characters, then you should check the character map, oh wait that should only apply to alternate Operating systems, hum, then again XP does have that accessibility thing... Bottom line: If a different keyboard with the same connection works, just e-waste/recycle/trash that keyboard...

XPS One Keyboard's Characters not functioning


Try to re-sync the keyboard to the computer. Here’s the procedure:
1) Turn the computer on.
2) Turn on the keyboard
3) Press the sync button on the rear of your computer’s left speaker.
4) Press the sync button on the keyboard. ( I believe it’s on the bottom of keyboard)

The sync button has a symbol next to it, (2 arrows going in clockwise direction).
Ensure that the keyboard battery has not run low.

If that doesn’t work, look for a Bluetooth icon in the lower right hand corner of your desktop and double click on it to open the Bluetooth configuration utility. See if there’s a configuration file for the keyboard. If there is, delete it and then re-detect Bluetooth devices.
Hope this helps.

Gateway Keyboard left shift key adds a pipe character


The driver will not fix the problem, as this is a mechanical problem. I had the same problem and was able to fix it. Instructions with pictures can be found at: http://lotus.kick-***.net/keyboard

Here are the instructions without the pictures:

I had a problem with my Gateway keyboard where whenver I pressed the left shift key, it type a pipe | (verticle line) character. This is the same character that is above the back slash character . I searched the internet and people were suggesting reloading drivers and apparently Gateway was suggesting a destructive reload of the hard drive. That's absolutely rediculous.
After some research, I determined that on some European style keyboards, the backslash/pipe key is between the left shift and the "Z" key. So, I removed the left shift key to experiment. The key simply pops off by sticking a screwdriver under it. (It is not necessary for you to do this).

When I used a little screwdriver to press on the center of the plastic (red arrow) I would get a proper shift key. However, when I pressed to the right (green arrow), I would get the backslash character. If I pushed at the red and green arrow together, I would get the pipe character.

Ah-hah! I determined the problem. The inside of the keyboard is a "universal" type and can be used with U.S. or Europeon keyboard layouts. For whatever reason, the left shift key was hitting both dots under the key. (The dots are visible in the pictures below.)
To resolve the problem, it is necessary to disassemble the keyboard. On the bottom of the keyboard is a bunch of screws. Remove all of the screws. If you have any rubber feet, there is probably screws under the rubber feet. The feet are just held on by sticky taope, so they peel right off.

Once all of the screws are removed the top and bottom halves seperate easily. The circuits stay in the bottom half of the keyboard, so set the top half of the keyboard to the side. The red arrow marks where the left shift key presses down.

Pull back the top layer and you will see the flexible circuits. These are also made up of multiple layers. When a key is pressed it pushes these layers together to complete the switch circuit. The red arrow marks the shift key. The green arrow marks the backslahs/pipe key for European style keyboards. The blue arrow is yet another key that is not used on U.S. keyboards.

Pull back the first layer of the switch circuit to expose the space between the circuit layers.

Place a small piece of electrical tape on the extra backslash/pipe circuit connection as marked by the red arrow.

Now simply reassemble the keyboard and that weird pipe character will never accidentally show up again.

Sounds like a classic problem for a driver/firmware update. get an update here before trying anything else- http://www.palm.com/us/support/downloads/tungstenc/tungstenc_update_30.html If it still doesn't solve it you might need to format it and reinstall everything from scratch. Good luck
