Question about Altusen Aten CS62U-2 Port USB KVM Switch

1 Answer

Lost the instructions for the CS62U switch

I bought an Aten KVM switch (CS62U) 6 months ago and had it working between my desktop and laptop, until my desktop died. I now have a replacement, and want to use the switch again, but I've lost the instructions -- what keys to press, how to customise the hotkey, etc. Can anyone help?

    Thanks for the link, but this did not actually help. There is no CS62U model listed there ? only CS62B. This is a different model, and the hotkey setup looks quite different too.

    My apologies, I didn't pick up on the 'Quick Start Guide' -- I looked under Manuals, which is what the other thing I found was called. You're right, the CS62U Quick Start Guide is there. So what was this manual I found? It was also a PDF, but entitled "User Manual". I found it athttp://kvmswitchdirect.co.uk/PDFs/Manual...
    Anyway, I now have the info I need, so thanks for your help.

Cannot invoke hotkey function to switch computers .Directions say use num loc key plus minus key and release num loc but this doesnt work.


Make sure your keyboard and mouse are plugged into the correct usb slots on the switch. One is labled for keyboard, and the other for mouse. If you mix these up, those hotkeys will not work! :) Also, a much better hotkey for this switch is to tap scroll-lock twice. This automatically switches, so you don't have to hit multiple buttons.

Brought a CS62US and Mircosoft KB with mouse. When USB combo plugged on the left USB, only KB is worked together with switching function. When USB combo plugged on the rigth USB, both KB & Mouse worked...


Unfortunately, this switch has a dedicated port for keyboard that listens for the keyboard keystroke. You MUST plug the keyboard into the dedicated keyboard port on the KVM switch for the hotkeys to work. I recommend putting the mouse that comes with your keyboard to the side, and using another mouse, plugged into the dedicated mouse USB port on the switch. Not the prettiest solution, but some of those mouse/keyboard combos have some funky hardware!

Can't switch


Make sure your keyboard and mouse are plugged into the correct usb slots on the switch. One is labled for keyboard, and the other for mouse. If you mix these up, those hotkeys will not work! :) Also, try tapping scroll-lock twice to switch. It's much better than trying to use the num-lock + and - keys, since it's only a two-way KVM. Tapping Num-lock twice automatically switches, so you don't have to hit multiple buttons.

Not working


Make sure your keyboard and mouse are plugged into the right USB ports on the switch. If you plug the keyboard into the mouse USB port the hotkeys will not work! The USB ports on the KVM switch are labeled under each port, with a mouse and keyboard icon respectively.From the Quick Start Guide/Manual: The Numlock hotkeys are listed as:
[Num Lock]+[-] [1] Switches to output 1
[Num Lock]+[-] [2] Switches to output 2
[Numlock]+[-] [A] Auto-scans and chooses which ever port is connected.
Alternatively: Tap [Scroll Lock] twice to automatically switch between ports.
Note: I've never been able to get the Numlock key combinations to work correctly. I always just use double-tap [Scroll Lock] trick to switch.
If you get stuck with your scroll-lock and Alpha lock lights flashing, just hit [Esc] to fix it.

Hi, the CS62U is connected with an HP8750 (win2000) and a MSI WIND NETTOP 120 (win XP home). It works perfectly with the HP desktop but the mouse is not responding anymore.


Try this:
1. Disconnect your HP computer, so that only the MSI Wind is connected.
2. On the keyboard, hit [Numlock]+[-] then press [A] (this will auto-search for the computer that's connected, and connect both keyboard and mouse to that port).

Give XP a minute to detect new hardware. If XP does not detect the mouse, try plugging the mouse into a port directly on your netbook. If XP still does not detect the mouse, it's XP that's not detecting your mouse properly, not the kvm switch. :) If it does detect it, you should be able to then plug it back into your kvm switch and it should work at that point.
Note: if you get stuck with lights flashing on your keyboard, just hit [Esc] on the keyboard. That will reset the KVM switch.
Hope this helps!

Only 1 light on leads work and only 1 coputer will work


That is the way it is designed, only the light of the PC you are controlling will be lit. Once you switch using the hotkeys, the light switches as well.

CS62U 2 Port USBKVM Switch not switching


Are you sure, the usb cable belonging to the keyboard is plugged in the appropriate slot?
I have a wireless keyboard/mouse, so I have only 1 usb cable going into the switch. The first time, is plugged it into the slot of the mouse, and the switch did not work, so I plugged the cable in the other slot, and now everything works properly.
