Keyboard Problems

Recommended Posts

Good Morning

 

last time using a LeapFrog I have problems with external keyboard by typing letters into a Memory -

after about one hour the keyboard letters and num doesn´t work any more but cursors are still working fine. I use a normal PS2 G83 Cherry keyboard.

 

If you need some more details please PM

We are investigating this problem. We have not seen this particular 'bug' ourselves, nor have we had any other reports of this particular problem.

 

Have you tried using a different external keyboard ?

Hello K-Nine

yesterday I took another one and it worked fine, then I tried to press any key on this keyboard and voila I´ve found the problem. If I press the Strg/Ctrl Key the Keyboard seemed to be off press the button once again Keybord is on like before.

 

Same happens with other keyboards Cherry/Keytronic

 

It seem to be a feature like keylock, but I didn´t found on manual.

 

If I know how to switch on again keyboard I have no problem running a show.

 

Thanks

Sebastian

All,

 

I have plugged in a new keyboard to my new fat frog, but I get no response from it, pressing F2 to name an item brings up the small display on the board itself, and I can name from the cursor keys on the frog, but not the keyboard.

 

Any ideas?

Does anything else apart from the qwerty keys work on the keyboard - cursor keys, numeric entry etc.?

 

Do the Num Lock, Caps Lock & Scroll Lock LEDs toggle on and off in response to the appropriate keys?

 

Have you got a different keyboard you can try?

No the keyboard leds do not toggle on or off, I wasn't sure that they should, so I'll have to try another keyboard to prove the problem.

Hi Ian,

did you restart the desk after you had plugged the keyboard?

 

The PS2 Keyboards have to be plugged before powering the system

 

 

Cheers

All,

 

Even though it was a brand new keyboard, it was faulty. When I tried another keyboard, it was fine.

 

Thanks for your help.

 

Cheers

I have problems using a keyboard on my fatfrog ( versj 8.? )

After a while in use, the keyboard does not work, and I have to reboot the desk :evil: . Is it a problem that is known, and is it maybe fixed in software updates ?

Can I update directly from my v8 and up to 9.6 :?:

Having just upgraded my Bullfrog desk to version 10.4 I find that after a while the keyboard cant be used until I re-boot the desk. I never had this problem before . Is it a bug in version 10.4. What is the solution please

Try pluging in and out the keyboard...this avoids powering down the console.

 

Had this problem for a few times, too, but i thought it came from the very old keyboard I use...

Hi,

 

Currently having a problem whereby occasionally the numeric keys on the keyboard will not respond, however the enter and cursor keys will. When running a performance you are then left with using the cursor on the desk to skip/select memories. A complete shut down and restart seems to solve the problem. I am guessing this is probably something really simple that we are overlooking. It has been since upgrade to 10.8

 

Any ideas?

I am assuming that no one else has come across this then. Have downgraded to 10.4 as had other problems with tracking. Don't seem to be getting any more issues.

For the record, I have also had the external keypad numerics stop responding during a show, using 10.8.1 on a FatFrog. As above, normal behavior returns after a reboot. I don't recall this ever happening using 10.4.
