Re: Saitek Eclipse II Lighted Keyboard

Changing the default colour involves a little dis-mantling. remove the screws from the back of the board. Carefully remove the rubber feet inserts too as there are 4 more screws under there. Now remove the top section of the keyboard (the bit with the keys) Lay the board down flat and you will notice where the usb cable comes in a circuit board. this has a connector with 4 wires attached to it on the left hand side. the wires are coloured red, grey, blue and black. Remove the connector and swap over the Blue and Red wires. Re assemble the keyboard after reattaching the connector to the circuit board being VERY careful not to overtighten the screws. Now at boot up the keyboard will by default be red.

Re: Saitek Eclipse II Lighted Keyboard

Hi there, at the top right hand corner of the keyboard is an array of buttons around the circular one. To change the colour, you should just have to press the button next to the mute key that has the symbol of a half black/half white circle. Hope this helps! Si :)

On Saitek eclipse II illuminated keyboard: What is function of the 1 (above the f8), the A (aboveF9) and the down arrow between F10 and F11) Also the function of the dey on bottom row between the windows...


The 1, A and down arrow represent the usual Num Lock active, Caps Lock active and Scroll lock on option available on all keyboards out there.

The 'dey' key on the bottom between the Windows Key and the Ctrl acts as a right mouse button, as in opening the menu you would open with the right mouse click.

Hope it helps.

Saitek Eclipse Keyboard Keys stopped working

this could very well be your OS as much as your keyboard. Try another board for a few days and see if it still happens. IF found your culprit. Replace the keyboard or look for updated drivers if they exist.

Saitek Eclipse II keys are sticking

You can remove the screws on the back and clean the keyboard. It's very easy task to do. Just remember components locations inside so you can reassemble.

Check your language settings in Windows.
In Vista you will find it in Control Panel - Regional & Language settings.
Make sure to set your Country correctly in the Keyboards section (tab at the top of the box)

Love my new Saitek Keyboard, but I don't what some of the buttons do???

You can download a manual here: For the 1, A, and Down Arrow: My guess is that these are actually the indicator lights for Num Lock, Caps Lock, and Scroll Lock. For the four silver round buttons: The top right corner of your Eclipse keyboard features a set of controls for changing your computer?s audio volume and the brightness of the Eclipse Keyboard?s backlighting. To reduce audio volume, press button A until the desired volume level is reached. To increase volume, press button B. To mute the audio output, press button C and press it again to cancel mute. Press button D to control the brightness of the backlighting. Press the button to scroll through lights off, lights full brightness and lights half brightness.
