Question about Logitech LX 710 Keyboard/Mouse

Logitech LX 710x Keyboard

I'm having an odd problem. I use a wireless keyboard because I just don't like the feel of the one on my laptop. I have used this one for about 4 months with no issues. The batteries are fresh and I haven't reset or made any changes to anything. Here's the issue: I type and letters are added automatically. Here's an example of my typing done on the wireless keyboard:

Pleasex nhelpx mjex finhdx ax solutionhx tox tnhisx issuex ifx youx canh.

Which translates to: Please help me find a solution to this issue if you can.

I've also noticed that other keys are being used as different functions, like for instance, my CTRL key is now my CAPS LOCK key as well, though the CAPS LOCK still functions normally.

Thanks for your help!

Re: Logitech LX 710x Keyboard

I have had the same problem for ever. I have found that unplugging the USB dongle, waiting 10+ seconds and than plugging it back in tends to fix it right away.

After a few weeks you might have to do it again. Annoying problem but a simple fix

Four keys in Belkin wireless keyboard are not working

If only specific keys are not working, something is obstructing those keys\' pickups which are located immediately beneath the keys. This is almost always caused by food debris or liquid spillage as dust doesn\'t provide particles big enough to cause issues.

If those four keys feel "funny" when being pressed, it\'s almost certainly a physical obstruction. If they feel "sticky" it\'s always a liquid spill. If you don\'t recall spilling anything over the keyboard, use a can of compressed air (found at office supply stores).

Turn the keyboard long side up, with the keys leaning slightly downward. Place the air nozzle close to the intersections of the keyboard, starting at one side and work your way to the other side, using short bursts of air. Repeat for every row of keys. Pay special attention to the four that do not currently work.

You\'ll probably see lots of junk fall out of the keyboard. That\'s good, if so--I would then retest the keyboard (no need to reboot the computer). That should fix it--if not, you may have to resort to pulling off the keys that don\'t work. The next possibility would be broken key hinges, but that\'s beyond the scope of this reply.

For liquids, cleaning is hit or miss. If left long enough, liquids will eat away at the circuits, or provide a short circuit and kill the component. Since only four keys are affected, I\'m really leaning towards food debris, but if you did spill a liquid, you can disassemble the keyboard and clean up any residue under and around the keys. Probably best to use rubbing alcohol and a q-tip for that--but if you\'re not comfortable taking stuff like this apart, it might be time for a new keyboard, or find a handy friend. Good luck!

Can't find question mark symbol...

Don't have one for reference, but from all the images online it appears to be located above the 'P' key. You'll have to press the blue function key to use it.

If that's the place that you were referring to, then my guess is that yours was made for use in a different region.

On a traditional QWERTY keyboard, the '?' key is interpreted as an accented 'e' if the system isn't setup for US English.

If the 'Function + P' shows up as 'e,' then you should check your console's language/region setting, set it to US English, and try again.

My iPhone 4 (4.1) doesnt get connect with Mobile Wireless Keyboard? (Mexico)

It looks like the type of keyboard and mouse you are using is not bluetooth. You can't use the iphone 4 with just a wireless keyboard. It has to be a BLUETOOTH keyboard.

The Keyboard/Mouse combo you have from verbatim is most likely using Radio Frequency (RF) like the same frequency a TV remote control would use. Bluetooth is a different type of wireless technology that has to be paired with your iphone for it to work.

Brand new, sometime it misses a letter

Ah, wireless keyboards and mice...
The problem with using most wireless electronics in applications as sensitive as computer use, is that so many things share a close proximity of frequencies. Many wireless routers use 2.4 ghz frequency, as do many cordless phones. Interruptions in wireless products are, unfortunately, a part of the deal as of yet. This 'could' be making it miss a key.
Keyboards are also notorious for allowing a very low number of buttons to be active at one time. It may be that your typing speed and style has you accidentally pushing more buttons than the keyboard allows periodically.
It could be a defect, a not perfect connection on the 'board' of the keyboard that doesn't line up perfectly every time a key is pressed. Only expect this if the same key(s) repeatedly miss.
Lastly, it could be that you're just not used to the tension and feel of the keyboard yet. I know it took me awhile to get used to my laptop keyboard when I first bought it, after using the same desktop keyboard for near 5 years!
Hope my answer was inclusive and conclusive enough. Happy Holidays!

Some letters can't be typed

You need to replace the whole keyboard since the 4 letters is not working at all. You cannot change only 4 letter keys from your laptop.

Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.

I cannot sign onto my computer.

If you note which keys type double characters you can use the backspace key to backup one character as a work around, but it sounds like you may need to replace it. If it is wireless, try new batteries first and also try another keyboard if you can borrow one.

Belkin wireless keyboard receiver won't work with my laptop

Yes and no...
"Wireless enabled" means you do not need a separate adapter to connect to a wireless NETWORK or computer, not a peripheral device.

I assume the two connectors are PS/2- plugs - one pink, the other one green. What you need is a PS/2- -to-USB adapter that should have come with your keyboard. PS/2-in, USB-out, either with or without the cables (see picture)

Wireless mouse

Try a different mouse pad or use on a white sheet of paper.
Make sure there is no source of electromagnetic interference, like speakers, magnets, etc, close by.
Stay within a 4 foot range of the reciever.
Try a different USB port for the reciever, and try to elevate the reciever (if corded type), by placing it on a book.
Do not use the mouse on metal/glass surfaces as this can affect tracking ability.
Try a replacement of batteries with a fresh set.

Hope that helps!
