    New IR Wireless Keyboard

    I just obtained a Philips wireless keyboard from the Pomona computer show and it seems to intermittently ignore the keys. Everything else seems fine, however I can watch as it steadfastly ignores typed keys. Now I am sitting 6 feet away and it is better. Oh well, I just observed 'u' 'b' and 'v' ignored!!!!!...it was only like $12 so ...whatever!!

    I would try a few things first before you throw it off as a loss.

    • Change the Batteries
    • Reposition IR receiver
    • make sure the keyboard doesn't move while typing
    • test to see if this happens to the same keys over and over, or just any key


    Test the keys so you know it isn't something like a sticky key or something easy like that, but if none of these works, then maybe somebody else here could help. Those are the only things I can think of at the moment.
    WTF?!? You did what? With who? Why?
