Livescribe smartpen (Echo) not able to charge


Sounds like the micro USB cable is defective and needs to be replaced. But, first try the cable on another USB port to be certain that the USB port is OK.

Hoope this helps.

My iball pen drive is write protected i want to format it

This seems to be the problem of most of us these days and some of our readers who wanted to know the methods how they can remove the Write Protected error from their USB drives like Pen Drives and memory cards.

What is Write Protected error and why it happens?
In the Write Protected error, we can’t write or copy any data in our flash drives and even can’t format the drive.
There are many reasons that cause this problem, let’s see solutions of them.
• First of all try to locate a small switch (if any, that you may have not noticed) at some place on the drive or memory card reader. This is the prime reason for this error. If there is one, switch it to the other side to turn the protection off.
• Yes I know this problem is also occurring these days without this switch but not to worry. Just download this helpful software form here

and run it to execute a “low-level format” on the drive. This software is quite handy and may take few attempts to actually remove the error.
• The problem can also be caused by some virus activity so just get it scanned by some updated good anti virus which may solve your problem.
• BUT if none of the methods listed above solves your problem then your pen drive might have gone corrupted, so just get it replaced.
Hope any of the methods listed above solves your problem.
Update 1:
After the low level format, you may need to “Partition the drive“. Dont worry, partitioning a pen drive means allocating it its File System and Cluster Size that was lost after the Low Level Format.
For that:
  1. Run diskmgmt.msc in Run.
  2. In the disk management window, select the pen drive, right click on it and click on Format.
  3. Now choose the File System and Allocation Unit Size and do not check the boxes below.

Click OK and the drive will be reusable after this.
Update 2 (Better Solution):
Follow the steps in this post and just put the value 0 (zero) in step 5.
This will surely solve your problem now.

First , try to insert it any other computer and scan with any active antivirus program.
If its not formatting normally,then right click MyComputer->manage->DiskManagement->select ur pen drive->Right click->format (do not give quick format). Try this and check, else goto run->cmd->select pendrive (like F: or I: ,etc) and type command -> format F:

CE 0560 Logiech went dead, batteries are ok, just stopped working

By now you've got your problem fixed or you've bought a new mouse, but I had the exact same thing today. I tried everything you did, then I found a crazy solution that suddenly worked. I haven't a clue know whether it'll work for anyone else, but here it is:

When "connecting" the cordless mouse to the transmission unit (ie, enabling them to work together) you go ahead and first press the "Connect" button on the transmitter first. (I'm sure everybody knows that.) But the trick for me was that when I then pushed the small white connect button on the bottom of the mouse, I finally used a ballpoint pen (retracted) to make that white button really engage. That did it for me. My finger was just too soft to make that little white button on the mouse engage properly. The second I pressed firmly with the pen, hallelujah!, it worked.

I hope that works for you. Cheers!

Keyboard wont respond

Often this is simply because the radio link between the receiver and the mouse/keyboard has been broken. Some possible reasons for this are: flat batteries, insertion of new batteries, connector to the computer removed, etc.
In the first instance, you should restore the Logitech devices to a defined status (reset). To reset the device:
Remove the batteries from the mouse/keyboard for approximately ½ hour.
Press and hold the "Connect" button on the receiver for 15-20 seconds. Make sure that the receiver is connected, the PC is switched on and that there are no batteries in the devices. After resetting, insert new batteries and restore the connection as follows:
  1. Press and hold the "Connect" button on the receiver for 1-2 seconds.
  2. Then immediately press the "Connect" button on the bottom of the mouse (locate this button before you start, all cordless mice have a "Connect" button)
  3. Move the mouse around to check that the connection is working correctly
  4. Press and hold the "Connect" button on the receiver again for 1-2 seconds.
  5. Then immediately press the "Connect" button on the bottom of the keyboard (locate this button before you start, all cordless keyboards have a "Connect" button)
  6. Use the keyboard to check that the connection is working correctly
  7. Both devices should now be working correctly
If one or both of these devices is still not working, try them on another compatible PC system to ensure that the fault does not lie with your PC system.
