Anyone know the problem/solution to this? Mine just started doing this tonight. I unplugged all connections, and even let it sit for probably at least a good half hour with the power cord out too. Upon plugging it back in and throwing the switch back to the on position, the power light does not go on (on the back), but the lights on the front of the unit illuminate for KVM ports 4, 8, 12, 16, and the LAN - LINK; L.E.D.'s... This is regardless of the fact that nothing is plugged into the unit except the power cord... I am really hoping the unit is not fried! I also know it's not the (external) fuse, because I popped that out just to double check and ofc the unit wont 'attempt' to power on whatsoever with no (or a blown) fuse. It also may be worth noting that the two fans in the rear do also still spin up too.
If other keyboards and mice won't work, it sounds like your KVM bought the farm. Does it have any power lights that come on? is it plugged into a live outlet? Are they PS2 ports or USB? PS2 ports don't like power surges. Is the device plugged into a UPS? Does the UPS have power or is is tripped? In a server room?
In order to fully answer your question, a number of needful things must be inspected, reinstalled, confirmed, & tested:
Reset. Try the reset button. You could use a paper clip to reach the reset button through the pin hole in the lower front left of the Zonet KVM unit.
Inspect connectors. Each data/input/power connector/port requires all of its pins to be present & straight for full functionality.
Inspect the entire length of each cable & cord to ensure that each has no damaged area.
Seat each connector in the appropriate port of a computer that will be accessed via the KVM unit.
Electricity. Inspect all affected devices & confirm that each has sufficient, uninterrupted electricity.
It is possible for a Zonet KVM unit to display channel lights without direct power to the unit, but you should confirm that the unit is getting sufficient, uninterrupted electricity-directly through its own power cord. Unplug the KVM power cord & every connector & reseat each one (this performs a power reset on the KVM unit)-making sure that each connector is in the correct location (not just where it originally was). Thus, make sure that the keyboard, video display (monitor), & mouse are on the output side.
Press the power button on your monitor. If it does not turn off the monitor's power status light (Off/On/Standby), then remove the power cord from the monitor & reseat it-to reset the monitor's hardware. If it does not turn on the monitor's power status light, then the monitor is either not getting enough electricity or it has a malfunction which requires troubleshooting & fixing (possibly through a fixya.com thread for that monitor model).
Unlike USB devices, PS/2 devices usually require device connection prior to turning on that device. With that said, connect the keyboard & mouse KVM channel cable connectors to the computers & then turn on those computers that you intend to display through the KVM-connected monitor & then turn on these computers.
Any computer that does not turn on has an issue that requires resolving (just like a monitor that would not turn on).
Sometimes a keyboard/mouse interface issue can be resolved by replacing that interface device.
The KVM Unit. When all else properly connects & performs, what does not properly connect & perform has the issue &, hopefully, that can be repaired without having to replace it.
Your problem has nothing to do with the Operating System (Vista), it has something to do with the brand of your computer. I have similar problem before, I have Vista (Dell), but the time I connected another Vista (Sony Vaio), everything worked correctly.
This is what you need to do:
1. You have to make sure that you are using a standard USB keyboard and mouse.
2. Connect first the keyboard and mouse directly to the Vista computer to see if the USB ports of your computer are working properly.
3. You may power cycle the KVM switch by disconnecting it from the computers (including the keyboard and mouse) and leave it disconnected for 2 minutes.
4. Reconnect everything after two minutes and then reboot the computers.
5. Try using different USB keyboard if problem exist after power cycling the KVM switch.
If you connect the printer to the desktop computer and enable file and printer sharing on that computer. You will then need to go into printers and faxes and share your printer. Then go to the laptop and browse the network so you are looking at the desktop computer. You should see a folder that says printers. Open the printers folder and you should see the printer you just shared. Double click on it to install the shared printer on your laptop.
Now when you print from the laptop, you will print to the shared printer that you just installed (you may have to select it from the printer list). That will send the print job through the network to the desktop and the desktop will send it to the printer (the desktop will need to be turned on for you to be able to print).
If you don't want to have to leave your destop turned on just so you can print, you should look at a print server for your printer. That will connect the printer straight to the network. Then both computers will print to the printer over the network.
Check the KVM switch and make sure that the cords are not frayed or the device did not overheat. Also make sure that the cords are all securely fastened into the approptiate plugs. (Sometimes - however inconvenient - it is useful to tape the plugs in securely as well as ***** in the monitor plugs with the small knobs on either side of the plug. If the cord is defective you may need to buy a new one. Some of the pins from the cord may be missing and they may be the ones responsible for the missing color (green). I also suggest, checking the monitor and KVM color settings (if presant) before doing anything else. Sometimes devices auto calibrate and mess themselves up instead of doing any good. I may have more solutions later, if these don't work. There may just be a problem with the kvm switch because according to what you wrote, it seems that nothing like this happened to yor monitor before, did it?
