    My main keys on my keyboard stopped working, so I put new batteries in, thinking that was the problem (which seemed odd anyway since the battery light had not been flashing for an exchange) and they still didnt work. This is when I found that my other keys such as the mute and volume buttons do work. It's definitely something weird with the abc and 123 keys.

    I have the exact same problem, along with allot of other people it appears. Anybody who has a fix that actually works for this can have a whole bag of cookies.

I have the same problem. I suspect this situation occurs because the encryption is messed out (as you know, the Logitech wireless kb come pre-connected and with encryption enable). How did I get to this conclusion? Because only work the special keys that doesn't need encryption (media player, scroll, suspend, etc). More over, When the computer is starting, I keep pressing any key repeatedly and the computer emits an error beep. This led me to think that the computer receives the key signal but doesn't 'understand' it because is encrypted. Maybe the encryption passphrase is corrupted. I will try to find a way to disable the encryption

    I fixed the problem.

    1) Install the Logitech software and restart.

    2) The software will tell you to press CTRL-ALT-F12. This procedure resets the keyboard encryption and tells you to enter a new code.

    3) If you already had the software installed simply press CTRL-ALT-F12 and follow the above procedure.

I cleaned my keyboard while turned on and now I cannot get my number pad to work, which buttons did I accidentally push to get to turn off and how can I get them back on.


Based on your description of the problem you're experiencing, it sounds like you most likely pressed the "NUM LOCK" key. If NUM LOCK was activated before you cleaned the keyboard and was accidentally pressed during cleaning, this key press would deactivate NUM LOCK, causing the number pad to stop responding. To reverse this, simply press NUM LOCK again. The NUM LOCK button is located right above the "7" key on the number pad (see picture below).

Alternatively, since the setting determining whether NUM LOCK is activated when your computer is started is stored on your hard drive, you can try restarting the computer to revert back to an active NUM LOCK. Be sure to try this in case the first solution above does not work.

This is a Windows feature called "mouse keys", it can be disabled by using the shortcut left-alt+left-shift+num lock.

In Windows 7 mouse keys settings can be found by following Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Ease of Access Center\Set up Mouse Keys

Key pad doe not work


This means the number lock is on - in the upper right hand corner of the keyboard is a series of 4 keys.  Far right is delete, then (from the right) insert, Prnt Scrn, and Num Lk.  Hit the Num Lk key, and the number 9 with the padlock should shut off.  Your keyboard should now work normally.  
Any more problems, let me know!

Logitech S510 mouse will not turn on


I am assuming since you need batteries that the mouse is cordless. If so you normaly have to sync the mouse with the receiver.If the keyborad and mouse came as a package it will only have one receiver.There should be corresponding sync buttons for these devices.

S510 Keyboard Problem, Keys Dont Work, Everything Else Works,Ect-Mute


I had the same the problem. The cause was a corrupted encryption code. That is why only worked the keys that don't require encryption.
1) Install the Logitech software and restart.
2) The software will tell you to press CTRL-ALT-F12. This procedure resets the keyboard encryption and tells you to enter a new code.
3) If you already had the software installed simply press CTRL-ALT-F12 and follow the above procedure.

How to program my new Keyboard cordless desktop S510


When I bought my s510 recently I couldn't use the function keys even with the software that came with the keyboard and mouse.

I had to actually download new logitech software for the s510 which allowed me to use the function/extra keys.

Navigate to:
http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/keyboards/keyboard_mice_combos/devices/145&cl=US,EN

On the right hand side of the screen you will see 'Support Center' below it click 'Downloads,'
From there you can choose your OS w98 and language and download the software you need to get your keyboard working the way it should.
