    Has anybody else had a similar problem?
    It's transmiting fine but all of the function keys, backspace, I, O and a few others have just stopped working :confused:

    The keyboard was fine in the morning and was left on the sofa. When I got back home some of the keys wouldn't work. It wasn't dropped in between this time, it was just sat there on the sofa.

    I've emailed Gyration to see about a warranty replacement.

    Silly questions but :

    1) Try replacing the batteries with brand new ones

    and

    2) Go through the setup procedure again, to ensure the keyboard is registered with the receiver.

    This cures most problems, I know !

    As I've replied here. Try removing/reseating/replacing the batteries. Has helped with my Gyration.

    Beyond that, contact Gyration for an RMA number.

    Best of luck.

    I'm just about to try and get a replacement for my replacement gyration keyboard.

    IMO its a shame that the high quality gyration mouse isn't matched by a similar standard keyboard.

    I had the same thing happen where certain keys just stopped working for no reason. Returned kb to gyration and just phoned them today (10/05/04) and was told that the kb was dead and that they had posted a replacement on 07/05/04 but couldn't tell me the tracking number or who they had used to post it as there is nobody in the returns dept. today - does anyone know which carrier they use?
