Microsoft bluetooth mobile keyboard 6000


Wireless keyboards connect to tablets using Bluetooth, a wireless technology with a short range of only about 30 feet.
In most cases, you can prepare a keyboard to connect with a tablet simply by turning the keyboard off, then turning it on again while it is close to the tablet.
Read the instructions that came with the keyboard to see if it requires a passkey to connect with a device.
The passkey ensures that your keyboard is not accidentally connected to another nearby device. The steps required to connect a tablet to a wireless keyboard can vary slightly depending on the tablet's operating system.
Unlike docked keyboards, a wireless keyboard does not have to be designed for your specific tablet for it to be usable.
Turn on the keyboard and put it in discovery mode.
Place it near the iPad.

Tap the "Settings" icon, then tap "General."
Tap "Bluetooth" if it is in the Off position.
Tap the "On/Off" switch to turn it on.

Choose the wireless keyboard when it appears on the screen. Enter a passkey for the keyboard if prompted.
The keyboard name and a Bluetooth icon appear on the screen.
BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet
Turn on the Bluetooth keyboard and put it in discovery mode before placing it near the tablet.

Tap the "Settings" icon on the tablet status bar, then tap "Bluetooth."
Tap the "Bluetooth" switch to choose the "On" position.
Tap "Add New Device," then select "Search."

Wait a few seconds for the keyboard to appear.
Enter the keyboard passkey if prompted.
Samsung Galaxy Tab (Android)
Turn on the wireless keyboard and put it in discovery mode.
Place it near the tablet.


Navigate to the Home screen. Press the "Menu Key," then select "Settings."
Tap "Wireless and Network," then "Bluetooth Settings."


Tap "Bluetooth" to turn it on, then tap "Scan Devices."
Select the keyboard by tapping it.
Enter the passkey if prompted.
HP Slate (Windows)
Turn on the wireless keyboard while it is near the tablet, then put it in discovery mode.

Tap the Start button, then "All Programs."
Tap "HP," then "HP Connection Manager."
The device searches for nearby devices and lists them.

Locate the keyboard in the list, then tap the "Power Button" beside the keyboard entry.
Enter a passkey if prompted.

I have an inbuilt webcam on my laptop, but I don't know how to turn it on and use it. I know it works as I have taken pictures with it via facebook, but how do I use it if I'm not on facebook?? please...


If you give your make and model of the laptop I would be able to help you more specifically.

Generally, most laptops use a keyboard shortcut to turn on or off the webcam.

1. Look at the top of the keyboard at the F1 - F12 keys.
2. If you look carefully you will see tiny pictures on the F1- F12 keys.
3. Look for a picture that represents a camera. (e.g. F6)
4. Now look at the lower left hand corner of the keyboard and find the fn key (Function key)
5. Press and hold the fn key and then press the F key that has a picture of a camera to turn on the webcam. (e.g. F6) You should see a light turn on next to the webcam at the top of the laptop.
6. Now you can use your webcam in Skype or a similar program.

Good luck, please post back to this solution if you have any difficulties, and thanks for using FixYa.

Hello there Mauricio,

Try to re-sync the keyboard to the base but first, keep away any wireless device like your mouse from the receiver. Make sure your keyboard is just near the base.

Press the button on the receiver, and then verify that the light on the receiver starts to blink. Follow the instructions on the dialog box that might appear. If there is no dialog box, press and release the Connect Channel button on the bottom of the keyboard. Check the green light on the receiver. A steady green light means the synchronization was successful.

If the resynchronization fails, try to reinstall everything and make sure you are installing the correct driver for your OS.

If it is only the keyboard that suddenly stopped working? You might want to ask for a replacement since it is still under warranty.

Hello,
From what I understand, the 8 key is giving you a hardtime and you dismantled the button, but it is still misbehaving. Is it stuck in a pressed position? If so use tweezers to pull up the top.
Have you thought about using a virtual keyboard. That might relieve the stress of that constant battle.

Just a few suggestions,

Hope it helps.

Mic not working


The cause of a Web Cam's microphone to stop working can be either a hardware issue or a result from incorrect configurations.
Recommendations:
Determine whether it is a hardware problem by testing the microphone in Sound Recorder.

  1. Click "Start," > "Programs" ("All Programs" for Windows XP) > "Accessories" > "Entertainment" > "Sound Recorder."
  2. Click the Record button and speak into the microphone of the camera. You should see the green line move, indicating the application is picking up sound.
  3. Click the Stop button.
  4. Click the Play button. If there is no sound at playback, check to make sure the correct device is selected.
    1. Click "Edit," then "Audio Properties."
    2. Make sure Logitech is listed as the Preferred device for "Sound recording."
We also recommend using the camera on another USB enabled system.
If you can record sound in Sound Recorder, but not in the QuickCam application, try setting the Logitech Microphone as the Preferred device in Audio Properties.
Additional Information:
Multimedia keyboards that have the ability to control your computer volume may have software that can interfere with your webcamera's sound. If you have a Multimedia keyboard with volume control, the keyboard's software may need to be uninstalled in order for the camera's microphone to work properly in Windows.

The microphone may not work because of a hardware or configuration problem. To determine if it's a hardware problem, test the microphone in Sound Recorder.

  1. Click "Start," > "Programs" ("All Programs" for Windows XP) > "Accessories" > "Entertainment" > "Sound Recorder."
  2. Click the Record button and speak into the microphone of the camera. You should see the green line move, indicating the application is picking up sound.
  3. Click the Stop button.
  4. Click the Play button. If there is no sound at playback, check to make sure the correct device is selected.
    1. Click "Edit," then "Audio Properties."
    2. Make sure Logitech is listed as the Preferred device for "Sound recording."
The microphone may also be defective. To test this, try the camera on another USB enabled system.
If you can record sound in Sound Recorder, but not in the QuickCam application, try setting the Logitech Microphone as the Preferred device in Audio Properties.
Multimedia Keyboards:
A multimedia keyboard is a keyboard that has a button which can automatically control your computer volume. If you have a multimedia keyboard installed, the software for the multimedia keyboard may need to be uninstalled in order for the camera's microphone to work properly in Windows. Please contact Logitech with the make and model of the multimedia keyboard that is causing the problem. While we will not be able to assist you other than to advise to uninstall the keyboard software, it will help us determine the root cause of the incompatibility.
