Question about Microsoft Wireless Laser Desktop 3000

1 Answer

Even with fresh batteries the keyboard stops

Even with fresh batteries my Microsoft 3000 keyboard stops working after just one day. I remove and replace a battery and it starts working again for a few hours or minutes. Within a week I have to change the batteries altogether. Going through batteries like crazy and not getting advertised 8 month battery life. I don't see a way to manually turn off the keyboard, without having to remove the batteries.

SOURCE: My Zune 8g has poor battery life it is only 2

there are two things that can happen.
i if the charger is not giving out enough power out, then a battery cant charge on time.
ii if the battery is not charge.
if you are able to do the following.
get the battery out of the set, get a meter and set on dc amps,record the current before charging, and after charging check again and record, than compare the current differance.

Q = CHARGE Q = IT since I = CV / T
I = CURRENT Q = CV where I = V/R
T = TIME IT = CV V/R =CV/T
V = VOLTAGE VT =RCV
C = CAPACITANCE this is the charge of the battery T = RC
R = RESISTANCE of the battery which will also depend current from the supply.

from that charger you will find out that both battery and supply have equal importance

SOURCE: Microsoft 3000 keyboard has stopped functioning.

At the back of the keyboard, there will be small flushed 'reset' button. Press that. It resets and reconfigures the connection. If it still doesn't work, the keyboard has gone bad.

Have a nice day :)

SOURCE: Microsoft Curve 3000 Keyboard battery Low with new batteries

Your response to the clarification request was placed correctly.
Your keyboard must have a button on the bottom to sync with the USB transmitter. Press the button on the transmitter first and then the button on the keyboard. This will re-sync the devices in a new radio channel. Give it a try, it might just be a communincatin problem between the two.

The intellipoint software and drivers are not really needed for the the keyboard to work, even if it has special keys for functions like volume and such. As soon as your batteries start to run out you will be able to tell by the keyboard not responding properly to key-presses.

Wireless Mobile Mouse 3000 not working


I suggest you do the following. After having synchronized both connecting buttons in mouse and receiver, take off battery and next look for a tiny thin button that protrudes from one of the sides where the receiver is placed in mouse, hold it depressed and put back a new and fresh battery releasing simultaneously this button. Mouse would work correctly. Good luck!!! Chawah.
