Question about Logitech Cordless Desktop MX 5500 Revolution

Keys stop working

I've been using the MX 5500 keyboard for a while now with no problem. But all of a sudden I have a couple of buttons that do not seem to work. The down arrow key and the left CTRL keys don't seem to register. These are the only ones I've noticed so far. I've cleaned the keyboard with air and tried reconnecting it. No luck so far. Any ideas?

Sorry to inform you but the keyboard needs repair. I've been a wireless keyboards and mice user for years. I've been to this problem before. First I thought it was just the battery or the wireless dongle, until I sent the keyboard to the manufacturer for repair.

I would suggest to contact the manufacturer for repair if the keyboard is still under the warranty.

Have a great day!

The mouse will quite often stop working until I turn it off and back on, and sometimes the left click will get stuck. not the actual button, but the effect of it, if you understand what i mean. As of...


The MX 5500 is a usb bluetooth keyboard and mouse, I had this problem as well when I went beyond the range of the bluetooth. What i did to solve it was puchased a usb extension cable and moved the base key closer to my keyboard and mouse. (seems to me the limit was about 15-20 Feet.) and dont get any metal obstructions in between the receiver key and the kybrd / mouse such as a metal heat vent. ps. i do really like that unit, when it works it works well.

Spare part for Logitech MX 5500


no spare parts from logitech. you may have to try craigslist or ebay. logitech may take as a warranty replacement but you will have to send back the keyboard and so get a spare keyboard and mouse if that is the route you plan to go.

I have a MX 3200 wireless keyboard and mouse. the


The problem was that ther keyboard was encrypted for my protection. this sometimes prevents the keyboard from connecting to the receiver and therefore the computer. to stop encrypton: press the left CRTL + left ALT + F12 key at the same time. Press the connect button on the receiver (you only have a few seconds to then press the connect button on the keyboard. Press the ESC key. Now you must start the encrypton again. Install SetPoint software from www.logitech.com/downloads. after you save and run the program, then press left CTRL + left ALT + F12 keys. sometimes there is an encrytpion wizard that pops up to help you further encrypt the keyboard, but this does not always pop up. It didn't on mine. My keyboard just started working right after i re-sarted the encryption.

hope this helps others that were in my situation.

Split keyboard & capslock shift function


I had a similar problem and noticed I hit the F Lock button. On mine it was a one way plunger stuck down. This caused the problems you mentioned on mine. Prying it up with a paper clip had my unit working immediately. Good luck!
