Not recognizing the keyboard

I can't get the computer to recognize the keyboard. I tried it also with a USB keyboard, but no dice on that either. I've been told that the mother board is going out. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Hello.
This can be caused when the internal circuitry of the printer is "scrambled", it can happen in a storm or surge and simply after age.
Unfortunately there is no quick fix other than getting a tech to have a look, but that can be more expensive than a replacement.
You have done the trouble shooting for us and ruled out a cable issue.
Sorry the news was not better.

COMPUTER NOT RECOGNIZING MY USB


Hi there,
please try another usb device on your computer and check if it will be recognized.
If it does not recognize it try using a different port. If you have a USB keyboard and mouse try to swap it and check if that will work.
You can also try that USB device onto another computer and check if it will work.
This way you will know if its device or the port that is faulty.
Hope this helps!

My laptop is simply not recognizing my futaba interlink controller via usb hub. i know the hub works because i plug something else in and it works fine...I'm thinking just bad controller maybe?


Well i'm having the same problem.
My mouse & keyboard work trough the hub, however when i plug an USB-stick in, it wont recognize it.

I've i put my USB-stick in another USB-port, it works.

So try putting your usb, in another USB-port, thats not from your hub.

I have plugged it in and it my computer will not recognize that the USB is even plugged in, but it does charge the camera.


Try all the different USB Ports on your computer, sometimes certain ports can 'glitch' and not recognize the device that you've plugged in. If you've tried plugging it in all the ports and your computer still hasn't recognized the camera, re-install the driver software for the Olympus SP800UZ.
If all else fails, you can also contact Olympus customer service, they're quite prompt and helpful.

Motorola VE 440 computer does not recognize when connected w/USB


you might want to try it with a computer running Windows Vista - older operating systems will generally tell you that something is plugged into the USB port but will not allow you to access it as it does not recognize new software.
