    Hi. I am not surprised that you are having problems with your wireless keyboard not working. I bought an IQ770a 14 months ago. The keyboard (or should I say Keyboards) have never worked properly.

    First they told to change the batteries which didn't work.

    Then they sent me another wireless keyboard and mouse. This also missed letters and doubled letters.

    Then they sent me a plug in keyboard that didn't fit any port on the machine.

    Then they sent me a connecter. This keyboard worked for a while.

    Then they sent me a wire less keyboard with a USB stick. This worked for about 9 months and totally stopped working.

    I got the old lpugin one out. This worked for 2 weeks and then was dead sometimes and worked sometimes.

    My computer was sent in for repair and I was told that it was my fault for using a keyboard with a USB stick as the internal thing would work if I didn't have a USB one interferring with the signal!!!. They sent my computer bback with the same keyboard and the USB stick wrapped in paper and a not not to use it.

    Then they supposedly replaced the thing in the computer that communicates witth the wireless key board.

    The problem is that when a tech turns it on and types a couple of words, it works. The longer you type the more missing or doubled letters you get.

    I went back aand said that the same problem was happening.

    HP rang to say they were sending me another keyboard!!!! and that it would all be fixed. I exploded! I don't want another keyboard. I don't want something replaced inside it. I WANT A NEW COMPUTER THAT WORKS.



    I have spent hours and hours since I bought this ABSOLUTELY USELESS PIECE OF **bleep**!! and still do not have a solution.



    Neither Domayne, HP or Extended Warranty have helped. There is a "No Lemon" clause in the Extended Warranty contract. However is is very hard to get them to recognise a LEMON. You have to have that same problem 3 times. BUT they don't count any of the times the problem occurred under the HP warranty. NOW they are saying that because it is a fault with the model, it can't be covered under extended warranty!



    MY ADVICE IS DON'T ACCEPT THE "WE'LL SEND ANOTHER KEYBOARD" **bleep**, BECAUSE AT SOME POINT THEY WILL STOP WORKING PROPERLY TOO!! HERE IIS A SAMPLE OF WHAT i HAVE HAD TO PUT UP WITH...NOT BAD FOR A $3600.00 COMPUTER!!!!

    There has been anotheeratteptt o ffiix my compute keyboa. It iss stil not working prerly.

Looks like this is a wireless keyboard? If so there is usually a connect button on the bottom of the keyboard and/or on the unit itself. You may have just lost the keyboard to wireless receiver connection.

No not that bad just kidding.


Your body carries Static electricity.
An All-In-One desktop computer is set up like a laptop.

Once you remove the outside covers, the Static sensitive hardware components inside, are exposed.
You CANNOT just touch any metal frame, as you would for a regular desktop computer, and relieve your body of Static.

This means you need to wear an ESD wrist strap, and have it's alligator clip attached to a good ground source.

This is an example of an ESD wrist strap,

http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103245

I connect to an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of an open, empty desktop computer case.
(I feel an Anti-Static mat is unwarranted)

You can set a large metal serving tray (Unpainted), on the table you're working on, and connect to it.
Or perhaps a large metal knickknack (Unpainted)

(The Power On Button assembly presses against the Power On switch.
The Power On switch is what should be bad. Of course you will know once you get to it.
The Power On switch is part of the above assembly)

I have a brand new HP touchsmart 310 with the wireless keyboard. It worked for a few days and now the m key will not work. It does not look physically jammed or out of place. We actually got it working...


Well as it sounds as tho its new, I would suggest you dont touch it as you would diable warranty. Take it back to where you got it.
Hope this helps. But, i think you already new the answer, anyway..

HOW DO I LOCK THE KEYS?


Hello, there is no way to lock the keypad like one would a cell phone to prevent the accidental pushing of buttons. However if you are listening to a transmission and you want to stop it on the frequency it is at so you don't miss any of the conversation simply push "man" (manual) on your keypad and it will remain on that frequency until you hit "scan" again. Once you hit "scan" it will begin to trunk. The "lock" button on your scanner is to lock the lights on so they don't shut off in **** a short time. Hope this helps.

Remote control has stopped working. Have tried changing the battery of the remote control but that did not work.


Does the red light on the remote light up when you push any of the button
if no, replace remote
if yes, then try repograming the remote to the car again.
-Have remotes' ready. if you have two then fob#1 and fob#2 (doesn't matter which one is #1 or #2)
-each step has to be done within 5 sec or it will not work, but don't do it super fast.
1.turn key just to the "on" position (not starting) and push "lock button " on fob#1 once and release
2.turn key off
3.turn key just to the "on" position (not starting)and push "lock button " on fob#1 once and release
4.turn key off
5.turn key just to the "on" position (not starting)and push "lock button " on fob#1 once and release
6turn key off
7.turn key just to the "on" position (not starting) and push "lock button " on fob#1 twice (if you only have one fob, then stop here and go to step 8)and push the "lock button" on fob#2 twice.
8.turn key off and remove key from ignition.
if you did it right, remotes' should work again.
good luck

Both key fobs for honda pilot 2006 no longer works. Do I need new keys or is it something internal such as a fuse?

Sometimes keyboards have a setting (I think it is called sticky keys, but I am not sure) so that if you accidentally hold down a key for a while, it stops working to prevent you typing too many accidental letters. You can disable or adjust this in the keyboard settings.

I think I've accidentally activated the lock feature...


does logic board on motor have a small pushbutton or dip slide switches? If pushbutton, push it for 10 seconds. let do. panel light stop blinking? Unit somehow got into lock mode, even though you do not have lock button. If this has stopped light from blinking, you now have to code remotes and or keypad back in. Push the little buton for 1 second and push a remote. Light bulbs on unit should blink. Take next remote (or keypad) and repeat this sequence for each one. Let me know. If you have safety beams, liftmaster should help you. w/o beams they will not support.
