Saitek Eclipse II Keyboard Volume & Song Switching Buttons Don't Work

I have a Saitek Eclipse keyboard that is approximately 1 year old. The buttons for volume and switching songs don't seem to work anymore, it might have been cause I used a software to clean my computer and then it might have removed the keyboard startup program from the list, but as I tried looking at the start-up processes at "msconfig" I couldn't find it anywhere. It would also be a help to know where the file folder for the keyboard is located?

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

You can download a manual here: http://www.saitek.com/manuals/eclipse_manual.pdf 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.

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 :)

Are the keys working?
If the keyboard is doing absoloutly nothing, then it may have drawn too much current from the USB port and shorted it out.

Try something else in the USB port and see if that is working correctly like a flash drive/mouse etc

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.

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...


Hi,

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.

Hi Chris

Ensure that you have the usb lead from the yoke plugged into the rear of the PC as these give the most current. Ensure the drivers for the yoke are installed properly and they are the latest for your operating system. If this still does not work, then the yoke is faulty. Good luck!

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 not...you found your culprit. Replace the keyboard or look for updated drivers if they exist.

The " T " and the " Y " require more pressure


what kind of keyboard are you using?? is it from a laptop or pc? if it is an external keyboard, try to detatch the y and t keys from the keyboard using anything that is thin (eg. knife, pen, etc.). clean it... and put it back by just pushing it back..

Boot Up Problem with Eclipse II Keyboard


If you have a newer system you can enable USB legacy support via bios and your new keyboard should work fine, otherwise, your keyboard will only work once the operating system is booted up.

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.
