Period button keeps pressing itself on keyboard

I'm not holding down anything on the keyboard but the period button constantly presses itself at random times. It doesn't always press itself, only when I highlight a text box or something. It's really very annoying because half the time while I'm typing something it just starts putting tons of dots and I have to delete them.

Logitech m205 won't work, the light keeps blinking


If your unit is a wireless keyboard only, then there is a button on the bottom of the keyboard and another on the receiver that is plugged into the usb port of the computer. In order to calibrate the system when it looses its signal, you have to press and hold both buttons down at the same time for 30 to 45 seconds. That means press the button the receiver and the button on the bottom of the keyboard at the same time and hold them down for 30 to 45 seconds. This will revive the signal and bring it back to working condition.

If your unit is a wireless mouse and wireless keyboard then there are probably 3 buttons involved that need to be pressed and held for 30 to 45 seconds at the same time. One button on the mouse, one on the keyboard and the last on the receiver.

If you press and hold the buttons down as explained above, it will correct the problem.

I can't type anything and it has new batteries in it


Most wireless devices require a link to be established between the receiver (the part you plug into the computer) and the device itself. Here are some steps to try to make sure this connection has been established:
  1. Look on the keyboard and the receiver for buttons. Often they will be labeled as "Connect". These buttons may not be immediately obvious as some of them can be recessed and may require a paperclip or thumbtack to press.
  2. Once you've found these buttons, hold the button on the receiver for 3-5 seconds, release it, then immediately press the connect button you found on the keyboard.
  3. If done properly, you should now have a connection! I hope this information helped.

My del button wont work on acer 5235 or backspace help needed please


Easiest solution...buy a new keyboard. Beyond that, pop the keys out with a butterknife, and insure that nothing is keeping them from fully depressing. If there's no obstruction, you might try completly pulling the case off the keyboard itself. If you've never done this, you'll find that each "key" on the keyboard corresponds to a matching "black button" on the physical board itself. The Key pressing on this button is what sends the signals to your computer that a keystroke has been made. Try pressing that little "black button" with a pencil or something, and see if it registers. If it does, you just need a new key, if not, the board is shot and it's cheapest to get a whole new keyboard.

I know that i've kind of watered this down, but i hope it points you in the right direction.

How do I type question mark and slash on this keyborad


Look to the right of the N and M and COMMA and PERIOD keys, for the SLASH key.

Below the COMMA and PERIOD keys, is there a key labelled ALT(ernate) GR(aphic)? If so, hold that key down, press the key to the right of the PERIOD key, and press the ALT GR key, and see if a SLASH is displayed.

My keyboard won't let me type any letters or numbers


Are you sure that they are connected to each other? Try newer batteries. Press the connect button of the receiver for 2 secs and quickly press the connect button of the keyboard or press and hold the connect button of the receiver and the keyboard at the same time for 4secs do this steps over and over until it connects. Heres a tip the light on the receiver will blink onced pressed and if you press the connect button of the keyboard the blinking will stop which means that the receiver picked the keyboard out.... hope it helps

Keyboard wont respond


Often this is simply because the radio link between the receiver and the mouse/keyboard has been broken. Some possible reasons for this are: flat batteries, insertion of new batteries, connector to the computer removed, etc.
In the first instance, you should restore the Logitech devices to a defined status (reset). To reset the device:
Remove the batteries from the mouse/keyboard for approximately ½ hour.
Press and hold the "Connect" button on the receiver for 15-20 seconds. Make sure that the receiver is connected, the PC is switched on and that there are no batteries in the devices. After resetting, insert new batteries and restore the connection as follows:
  1. Press and hold the "Connect" button on the receiver for 1-2 seconds.
  2. Then immediately press the "Connect" button on the bottom of the mouse (locate this button before you start, all cordless mice have a "Connect" button)
  3. Move the mouse around to check that the connection is working correctly
  4. Press and hold the "Connect" button on the receiver again for 1-2 seconds.
  5. Then immediately press the "Connect" button on the bottom of the keyboard (locate this button before you start, all cordless keyboards have a "Connect" button)
  6. Use the keyboard to check that the connection is working correctly
  7. Both devices should now be working correctly
If one or both of these devices is still not working, try them on another compatible PC system to ensure that the fault does not lie with your PC system.

Keyboard period repeats


I have had the same problem for ever. I have found that unplugging the USB dongle, waiting 10+ seconds and than plugging it back in tends to fix it right away.

After a few weeks you might have to do it again. Annoying problem but a simple fix
