I have done everything to trouble shoot my non-working keyboard. I've been using it a year and it is set up correctly There is supposed to be a power button? I sure can't find it!

Thanx!

  • Switched wifi to bluetooth - better match with keyboard tech that's used by the wireless keyboard.

The power button is on the right hand side, it's part of the "tube" at the back and clearly marked with a power button symbol.

enter image description here

Did you check the batteries as well?

    I don't mind the downvote, but just out of curiosity: why?

  • Checking the power button and replacing the batteries is what every person does first when such problems occur (IMHO). @Pam has been using this keyboard for a year! I'm sure he's smarter than that.

  • @Pam explicitly asked for the power button though... Oh well, never mind.

  • Did not read that part... That's weird! I'd undo my downvote if I could. Maybe, I should also take back the "he's/she's smarter than that". Lol

  • Hey, thank you! I'm in business. Ha. I thought I may have turned it off by mistake but could not find it anywhere. That's how long since I turned it off. Should have been doing that anyway. :) –

Many people have experienced this problem. Often this was related to bad contacts inside the keyboard. This is a fix proposed by several people:

Fix

I resolved this by rolling some soft household metal sponge [...] into a small ball and dropping it directly on the contact, then jamming in the batteries. Don't worry, the case will close (my ball was about 75mm in diameter). [...] It is nevertheless important that the metal sponge doesn't touch the casing, this could cause a shortcircuit.
