Question about Adesso PCK-308UB (DHPCK308UB) Keyboard

1 Answer

Seemingly loose keyboard connection

PCK-308UB keyboard functions only intermittently, only when I jiggle the USB cord near where it enters the keyboard. I opened the keyboard and didn't see any obvious loose connections.

Probably a broken wire within the cable itself. If you want to try to salvage the keyboard and it is not under warranty, then you can cut the cord about two inches from where it enters the keyboard, strip the wires and connect them where the old connections were. This will require a bit of dexterity in order to accomplish though.

Why is my microwave dead?


Assuming you checked the main fuse (inside the case, near where the power cord enters), you might have a bad connection to the (main fuse) fuse holder. Sometimes these heat up and oxidize. Some thermal protectors operate seemingly backwards; in that they are normally open, and close when certain conditions occur (such as a fire in the cavity). Make sure all door switches actually function properly by checking them with an ohm meter. Although extremely rare, power cords sometimes fail.

Can't get mouse pad working


If the rest of the keyboard is working i would be inclined to think there is damage to the cable that connects the mouse pad to the rest of the keyboard.

I'm trying to sync an apple ipod shuffle 4th generation to my windows xp pc. The famous USB device not recognized thing pops up. What do i need to do so i can use and sync my ipod.


Shutdown Windows.
Turn the computer off.
Unplug the AC power cord.
Reconnect the AC power cord.
Restart the PC.
This will eliminate many "intermittent" problems.

Now, connect some other USB device (mouse? keyboard? memory-stick?) into the USB port, to confirm that the USB port is working, at least for some USB device.

Now, connect the iPod to one of the USB ports.
If it is not recognized, connect the iPod to a different USB port.

This should work.

Number,one,three,five seven and zero not working and back space aswell


Is your keyboard connected via USB (a flat rectangular connector), PS/2 (A round connector, often it is purple), or AT connector (a round connector that is roughly twice the size as the PS/2 port for your mouse)? More than likely, it's connected via USB. Especially if it was bought within the last five or six years. If it is a USB keyboard, try plugging it into a different USB port and see if that helps. If that doesn't help then most likely the cord on your keyboard is damaged (kind of like when you have a pair of headphones that will only sound on one ear unless you jiggle the wire). If it's not the USB port (or you have a PS/2 keyboard) I would recommend you buy a new one. You can get one for as cheap as $10.

Vacuum is turning on and off intermittently


Turn the vacuum ON.
Go to the plug while it is in the outlet, jiggle it and the wire going into it to see if there is a loose connection on that end.
Then go to where the wire enters the vacuum.
Jiggle that to see if that makes the vacuum stop.
If there are no problems found on either end of the wire, the next step it to open the machine and check the connections at the internal switch and the switch itself.
Let us know.

Your keyboard USB cord has probably become loose. Try reseating the cable into another USB port, or just reseating it if the keyboard uses a keyboard cord.
If this doesn't work, try a different keyboard (if you have another one around the house).
You may have either a bad USB port, dirty port, or bad keyboard.
