Question about Logitech Cordless Desktop MX 5000 Laser

1 Answer

Keyboard anomalies 1. In Sibelius music programme the user controls the size of the screen image. Very often my Logitech cordless keyboard (I assume) changes the size arbitrarily. 2. In Outlook Express emailing, Sibelius - writing lyrics, Microsoft Word, the Times New Roman font I use and have typed in appears in transliterated Greek letters! I thrn have to close the programme and restart when it returns to normal initially.

First thing to try is replacing the batteries in your keyboard etc. second is to update the drivers from this link;,en However, this sounds like it could be a virus, not anything to do with your keyboard. Check your anti virus software is up to date and do a full scan. If you need good free anti virus software then go to; and download. To verify this it also would be worth plugging a standard keyboard into your machine and removing the drivers for your cordless one to see if you get the same problem. Hope this helps, please ask again if not :)

How do i adjust mouse sensitivity

Assuming you're using Windows, go to the Control panel, then Mouse. It may help to change to Classic control panel or setting the View to 'small icons', depending on the OS. You can change the mouse sensitivity in that dialog.

How do I change it from wide screen to regular? I have a black area above and below the picture.

You can set the picture size by remote control itself.

You can vide 480i format programmes in three picture sizes. 4:3, 16:9, and ZOOM
You can change the picture size by pressing the PICTURE SIZE button on the remote control.
4:3 Picutre size
To fill the screen, the top and bottom edges are extedted more widely, although the center of the picture remains near the former ratio.
If receiving a 4:3 programme, the image size is displayed in its originally formatted proportion.
16:9 picure size
This image displays the size of standard 16:9 with black bars at the top and bottom.
If receiving a 4:3 programme, the image is displayed with black bars at the top and bottom and stretched wider.

NOTE: If a fixed bar remains on the screen for a long period of time, the image can become parmanantly engrained in the screen and cause subtle but permanent ghost images. Never leave your TV for long periods of time while it is displaying these images.

Zoom picture size [for 16:9 formats]
The entire picture is uniformly enlarged --it is stretched the same amount both wider and taller (retains its original proportion). The right and left edges of the picture may be hidden.
