Question about Microsoft K5100141 Keyboard

1 Answer

The "@", "2" key on a wireless 3000 won't respond

All keys on the key board, except the "@", "2" key work properly. I've cleaned the keyboard with a compressed air duster, rebooted, reinstalled etc. It seems to be a mechanical issue. How difficult is it to open and repair? Or am I missing something easier? Thanks.

Some keyboards you can pop the keys off. There may be a crumb lodged. I had this problem before and thats what it was. If not...I don't know then. If you take your keyboard apart make sure you payattention to where everything goes back to gether. I took mine apart but mine is an older one.

CANT ENTER MY PASSWORD TO GET IN MY COMPUTER KEYS NOT TYPING ON SCREEN ITS LIKE THE WIRELESS KEY BOARD IS NOT RESPONDING


My advice would be to put new batteries in the keyboard and see if that works, failing that, pick up a wired keyboard and mouse to log in to your system then re-connect the wireless set to re-install the drivers.

THE KB BOARD NEEDS TO BE SERVICED, BY REMOVING THE SCREWS OR SNAP CLIPS THAT HOLD THE KB TOGETHER, CLEAN THE CURCIUT BOARD OR PLASTIC FILM WITH SOME ACOLAHOL AND LENT FREE TOWEL,
USE A CAN OF COMPRESSED AIR TO REMOVE THE DIRT FROM THE KEY SWITCHS.
PUT IT BACK TOGETHER,

GO INGO CONTROL PANEL OPEN DEVICE MANAGER, GO DOWN TO KEYBOARD AND CHECK FOR ANY TYPE OF UPDATES OR AND CHANGES TO THE PROGRAM.

IF YOU CAN FIND THE KEYBOARD TEST THAN TEST THE KEYBOARD TO MAKE SURE ALL KEYS ARE WORKING PROPERLY.

Mx3000 stopped working, read forums, reset receiver now dashes only when pressing any key. rebooted computer ... now keyboard not responding agian


I got a used MX3200, got the mouse working right off, but no keyboard. This solved my problem: with the wireless mouse working took out the keyboard batteries, pressed connect button on the receiver, replaced the keyboard batteries, pressed connect button on the keyboard. Voila!

Once I take the keyboard apart, and brush off the 3 plastic layers underneath the keyboard, it works fine.
There are 14 screws on the back that you need to remove, a couple of them are hidden underneath warning / instruction stickers so you have to feel for them and cut the stickers off with a knife.
