Lost the volume control function from Compaq Keyboard

I used to be able to turn volume up and down with dedicated buttons next to the mute button, but they have stopped working. Can still adjust vol on taskbar icon, but prefer to recover button function. How?

Could be many reasons, but I would first ensure your keyboard's software is functioning and up-to-date. Special buttons like those generally require a software running that can interpret the input and allow you to change the volume.

Easiest way would be to goto hp.com, click on "Help and drivers" and enter your product's number. That should come up with downloads for your product! Just look for something pertaining to "keyboard".

From the manual:

Hotkeys are combinations of the fn key (lower left of keyboard) and one of the function keys:

Increase speaker sound. fn+pg up
Decrease speaker sound. fn+pg dn
To use a hotkey command on the computer keyboard, follow either of these steps:
Briefly press the fn key, and then briefly press the second key of the hotkey command.
- or -
Press and hold down the fn key, briefly press the second key of the hotkey command, and then
release both keys at the same time.
Muting speaker sound (fn+home)
Press fn+home to mute speaker sound. Press the hotkey again to restore speaker sound.
Increasing speaker sound (fn+pg up)
Press fn+pg up to increase speaker sound. Hold down the hotkey to increase speaker sound incrementally.

My bluetooth brookstone ipad keyboard is not working


The iPad's touchscreen keyboard isn't bad, its actually pretty good for a touchkeyboard. However there can be times where you may need to do some major emailing or even document writing and need a keyboard. This recipe will show you how to pair any bluetooth keyboard with the iPad. You don't just need to use the Apple one, any bluetooth keyboard will work!

1. Go to Settings - General


2. Tap on Bluetooth, if its Off, tap on it to turn it On.

3. Now put your bluetooth keyboard in pairing mode; usually a dedicated button or by holding the power button down for 5 secs.

4. Once you do this, your keyboard will show up under Devices and say Not Paired.


5. Tap on it, You will be prompted with a message to type a series of numbers on the bluetooth keyboard and then press Enter on the keyboard.


6. The keyboard should up under Devices and say Connected.

Tips:
-If your keyboard has a volume controls and media player controls (ie play, next, pause, prev, volume, mute), they will all map in the system and work in iPod and Videos and control the system volume. These will also work when your in an app with the music in the background (ie Safari, Pages, Mail, Calendar, any of the native apps)
-The Internet Home button on some keyboards will act like the Home button. My Dell BT Keyboard w/media/internet controls works like this.


To Unpair:

Go to Settings - General -Bluetooth, Tap on the arrow on your keyboard in the list. Tap on Forget this Device
hope this

My Panasonic cf-w8 is mute? How do I unmute it? Does the Fn button have something to do with it?


Well the FN key could have set the mute on if the mute key was also pressed.

Click the megaphone at the bottom right near the time and open the audio properties and volume control. Check to make sure the mute is not checked.

You can also click Start/Control Panel and look for Audio or Sound and adjust to make sure the mute is not check.

On your keyboard if you Press and Hold the FN function key at the lower left portion of the keyboard then you can hit the key that has the megaphone with an X across it to take the mute off.

Some laptops have 3 buttons that control the volume. One for turning the volume up, one for turning the volume down and one for muting the volume.

I pushed a button and lost all sound, what should i do? is there a reset button to get going again?


The "MUTE" function on your remote control has been activated.To deactivate the "MUTE" function, simply press the "MUTE" button on your remote control. (Make sure the volume control is turned down to avoid damage to your system.) If you misplace or lose your remote control, you will have to purchase a new remote control unit, as there is no duplicate function on the front panel of your stereo. Unplugging the stereo will not deactivate the muting circuit, as the microprocessor "remembers" if the muting circuit was active prior to being turned off or unplugged. If you need to purchase a remote control, you may order one directly from our parts office.

Sound wont go on. muted but i have no way of unchecking the mute box


Go to the top of your keyboard. There is a button with a black sideways bell shape icon on it ( a speaker) (the f3 key)...probably four in from the left starting with esc. Toggle that on. It may be on the mute setting now. It should have waves coming out of it when it is unmuted. To the right of that button (two buttons to the right) is the increase volume control button, the (f5) key. Make sure the volume is up! If it is down all the way you will hear nothing and it will be also muted.
I am not sure why if you go into System Preferences (under the Apple icon) and scroll down to Sound and Output, the mute box cannot be unchecked. Perhaps using the function keys to unmute and increase volume on the top of the keyboard will help.

Lost the sound on my compaq key board has a orange light on by the mute button but i can't get the light to turn off


That definitely means the sound is muted, is the rest of the keyboard functional? I believe there is an option to turn off the mute in control panel under hardware and sound. However, I am unsure.
