  • Freedom Mini Bluetooth Keyboard Problems

    Is it just my bad luck or are the bluetooth Freedom Mini Keyboards pieces of garbage? I ordered one off Amazon, sent through J&R Music World and it arrived DOA. Put batteries in, turn on, nothing happens.

    Okay, it happens. I RMA it and the new one arrives today. Obviously a returned product. DOA.

    Is it user error? The instruction manual is pretty lame, no troubleshooting for "power on, no response". Or are these keyboards crap?

    Anyone else have problems with them?

    Edit: never mind. I'm stupid. Chalk this one up to user incompetence and idiot directions. You have to hold down the link button for a loooooong time to get any action from the keyboard at all.

    It's working now. I'm typing this from the keyboard now. Slow going, but I only need the keyboard on rare occasions.

        Lol, Bug, I actually did the same thing... I was pretty ****ed... because you have to have it actually paired to something to get the backlight working too. and I was about to RMA it also but I was just playing with it and found out what you did...

          Can you please tell me what you did to get it paired?

          I turn on the ^%^% keyboard, hit the connection button till the blue light blinks, then I let the PC find the keyboard..

          Then I pair it.. and as soon as the pairing code pops op on the screen, the blue light stops and thats it! The keyboard turned itself off!!

          I've tried bluesoleil and widcomm drivers.
          Can you guys please tell me what you did to get the thing to work?

            I'm sure the OP of the review can help with the pairing issue.

              I've read all the topics here about the mini keyboard... but there is no solution anywhere.
              It works for some and not for others..or so it seems
