It won't recognize the keyboard

My xb3000, besides having the intermittent power problem others have posted, also will not recognize the wireless keyboard that came with it. The receiver that plugs into the usb seems to be working, because it connects to the HP wireless mouse that also came with this unit. I followed the connection instructions, tried different batteries in the keyboard, but nothing! I bought it over Ebay so its not easy to just return. The keyboard model number is Y-RAS79. Any ideas folks?

    I know power is going to the receiver because the "num lk" light comes on on the receiver itself, but the mouse and keyboard suddenly don't work any longer. I can't figure it out with troubleshooting or anything.

    Wireless receiver comes on but no light illuminates for keyboard or optical mouse and as such, they are inoperable.

I tried forever to connect the keyboard & mouse, then realized that I didn't have to hold the connect buttons on the receiver & keyboard for so long...it just wouldn't connect...until I figured out that you should only press the buttons for a second then immediately let go...both keyboard & mouse (while both cheap looking) have been working great since! Love the hot-buttons/keys!

Solution #3 posted by ed22614 worked for me as well. Just press the connect button briefly.

Fashioned a piece of tin foil to fit into battery slot to fit in between the positive on the battery and the positive reciever on the keyboard

Same problem for me. Mouse recognized easily, but keyboard would take many tries. Finally, I used a screwdriver to pull out the contact (little spring) for the + end of the battery a little further, and the keyboard recognized first try. I guess through time the spring gets pushed in a little too far and won't complete the circuit, since the slot for the + terminal is slightly smaller than the tip of the battery. When I change the batteries, I just give the spring a little tug to make sure the connection will be there.

Is it possible to connect the HP xb3000 to an apple computer


It's only possible if the main connector will fit into the apple. I haven't seen the female connectors of apple computers lately, but I'd bet that the HP XB3000 connector will only fit into an HP Laptop.

O/s will not recognise keyboard/mouse


Hello,

maybe it did not recognize it because the system has not yet installed the drivers or maybe the keyboard and mouse is faulty.

Get an external keyboard, as this will help to know where the problem is coming from.

I wish you all the best.

KEYBOARD


I'm afraid you're going to have to replace the keyboard. I really like my Dr. Pepper, and have had to replace three keyboards in two different laptops because of spillage, maybe one of these days I'll learn. Even the smallest amount of liquid will kill a keyboard, and the thing to keep in mind after a spill, is that the keyboard will either work, and may require some cleaning, or not work at all, and require replacement.

Receiver seems not working


I'm pretty well sold that the technical support at HP is completely worthless. They have some tree they look at for answers but have no actual technical ability, making them about as useful as an extra **** on your elbow
