R U sure the pins or whatever it contains are not bent? Solution : take the product to a store and find the correct cord. You should be able to complete hook up with a new one. If not, may need to change the USB port itself !
May be a bad pin (bent over or missing) on your monitor cable to the video jack on your computer. If a bent pin, you can straighten it with small needle nose pliers; VERY SLOWLY--fast moves can fracture the pin and break it. If a pin is missing (broken off), the connector must be replaced. If connector looks good, and is not a molded, but a soldered type, a broken solder joint can be repaired, If it is a molded cable, the entire cable must be replaced. I focused on the cable because this is the most common cause of "no signal", and further troubleshooting would be 'involved', to say the least.
It has a standard USB connector at one end and a special Sansa 30-pin connector at the other end. You can order one directly from SanDisk at http://shop.sandisk.com/store/sdiskus/en_US/DisplayProductDetailsPage/productID.103565200
Just to be sure, you did try other cards right?
If so, Bent pins are quite common unfortunately. Can't wait until they come up with something easier for this. Fixing it yourself is possible, yet you absolutely need the right tools and to know what you are doing. There is quite a bit to dismantle before you get to that area. Camera repair can be done and this company is very good at it. They even have a blog on bent pins and it shows a picture of what this looks like. Picture
If the end of the connector is round with pins (serial connection), just plug the keyboard back in and reboot the computer. With that style of connector, if they get knocked out or come loose while the computer is running, they will not always work again until you reboot.
If the keyboard uses the flat plug (USB) connector, the computer should be able to pick it up again without a reboot when you reconnect it. Also note that if the keyboard is USB and it stops working; if you have any other USB items hooked up as well (IPod, webcam, external drive,etc), check to see if any of those devices are still working either before rebooting your system. Sometimes, another unrelated USB device may crash causing ALL USB devices to fail simultaneously. If this is the case, unplug all USB devices except your keyboard and reboot. If the keyboard works again, reinstall all of your other devices one at a time until you locate the one that crashed all of them (if that was the case).
looks like the usb connection pins are not touching the other connection pins. just check the pins touch each other surface then the data will transfer. check all four pins. if it is a standard A connector then far two pins are power supply and middle two pins are data pins.
v- data- data+ v+ the above are the pins in a standard usb connector
The things that usually go wrong with KVMs are bent connector pins (usually mouse or keyboard) or the switch itself. Inspect the mouse connector for bent or corroded pins. They are easy to bend and straighten, however, they will eventually break off if you do it often enough. If you find one that is bent the safest way to straighten it is by using a .7 diameter mechanical pencil. Remove the lead, and work the pin carefully into the pencil barrel. Once you have the pin inside the pencil gently straighten it by moving the pencil vertical.
If it?s not a bent or corroded pin there isn't a whole lot else you can do other than try to get a warranty replacement or if its expensive enough, repaired.
