Swintec 2640 Typing wrong characters


On the L. of the keyboard there is a slide switch for pitch it should be in 10, 12 or 15 not in PS. If it isn't in PS push down on it and slide it up and down a few times and leave it in 10 or 12.

My toshiba laptop is typing wrong characters but my wireless tevion keyboard is o k. Is there a solution to this ?


Sounds like the laptop keyboard went bad and thats why its typing wrong characters. Best way to verify this is to use a USB keyboard on the laptop, if the USB keyboard is typing the correct keys then you know the laptop keyboard is bad. If the USB keyboard is typing the wrong keys as well then you know its a setting in windows that is causing the keys to type wrong characters.

The keyboard characters does not correspond to what appears on sc


Does it type " by any chance when you press the @ key? if so this is usually because keyboard input is set to the wrong language in the regional & language settings are wrong in the control panel. try pressing the left alt key & shift at same time first this is a quick key to change between input languages.
