Keyboard does not work! I have been using the Apple wireless keyboard for about a year. But all of a sudden stoped working. It is not about bluetooth, becouse the computer recognizes the keyboard, it just does not exept the input. I have tryed on different computers and the problem is the same. any ideas what to do??

    my left caps lock, tab, shift and letter 'cue' doesn't work. I have 3/4 battery power, so it's not the batteries.

    My macbook is doing the same thing.  It recognizes the keyboard through the bluetooth, but no input!!!

    I have a similar issue, my "2" button works intermittently.

    Most of my user names use the "2" button, so this is a large problem for me :)

My Genius Traveler 6000x wireless mouse suddenly stopped working

Double check the batteries, although the lights work and the computer sees it, the voltage could drop low enough to stop the sensors.

next, try another USB device in that plug. USB port can go bad.

If the port works, it could be the wireless USB connector starting to fail, if they are bumped to hard sideways it can cause loose connections internally.

then, you might just need to update drivers. Computer update s can conflict with drivers cause devices toss top working.

After moving, hooked up our Apple IMAC with wireless mouse, cjecked batteries, but mouse will not work.

Use keyboard to open control panel and get to bluetooth using keyboard shortcuts and set to allow all devices and restart.

My wireless mouse (new batteries) and keyboard all of a sudden do not work. Checked all of the connections. Devices are about 5 years old.

It seems as though your driver has become corrupted. Use your "System Restore" to go back a few days to when it was operating correctly.Thanks, Dana

Wireless keyboard no power

Try scraping at the positive battery terminals.  Worked for me.

I have the Microsoft wireless laser mouse 5000 and it just stoped working on me i was working fine than it just stoped

Make sure that the batteries are good and try pressing the receiver button and then on the bottom of the keyboard press the small button that re-sets and connects the keyboard to the receiver. It then should work properly. Hope this helps. Bud

Several models suddenly 'dies' after 12-24 months

Sorry to tell you, but if you look on the apple wed site, you will discover that there has been many problems like this have occured. These are some reviews left on the apple web site: Junk. I like Apple products but this one never completely worked. Ive tried the firmware updates and they dont work either. JUNK I used my Express as a range extender to my Airport Extreme and to play ITunes through my home sound system. It worked like a charm for two years and then just died one day. Well, peppelino, i suggest you ditch it and buy a new wireless access point, like a belkin router or 3com access point. Hope this helps
