1. Introduction
Congratulations on your purchase of the Memorex® RF6000 Wireless
Keyboard and Optical Mouse! This keyboard and mouse will finally free you
from the constraints of your desktop by providing a wireless connection
between your keyboard/mouse and your PC. Pass around the keyboard or
mouse during meetings without worrying about a cable blocking your way,
or write e-mails and surf the Internet from the comfort of your living room
couch!
The RF6000 Keyboard and Mouse combo consists of a keyboard, an
optical mouse and a receiver. The receiver is connected to your PC
through a cable, with a connector for both the keyboard and the
mouse. Because the keyboard and mouse use radio frequencies to
transmit wireless signals, interference from other wireless devices, like
TV remote controls and cordless phones, is reduced.
Besides providing unprecedented freedom of movement, this combo also
offers extra functionality by introducing dedicated buttons for often used
Internet Browser and Sleep functions. And since the mouse comes with
rechargeable batteries and a Mouseport™ charging station, so you'll never
have to worry about your mouse batteries running out of life again.
In order to enjoy your keyboard and mouse to their full potential we
recommended you read this manual carefully prior to use.

3. Insert the included AAA rechargeable batteries into the compartment.
Follow the polarity signs in the battery compartment and make sure the
batteries are placed in the correct direction
4. Replace the battery compartment lid and place the mouse in the
Mouseport™ charging station.
5. Connect the included AC adapter to the Mouseport™ and plug the power
supply into an electrical outlet.
6. Make sure the green light on the Mouseport™ is on to confirm that power
is being supplied.
7. Let the mouse charge for 8 hours before first use with your computer.
Notes:
1. The keyboard uses two pieces of standard UM-3 (AA) 1.5V batteries, and the
mouse uses two pieces of rechargeable (AAA) batteries.
2. Battery life for the keyboard is approximately 3-4 months, depending on the
intensity of usage. Battery life for the mouse is approximately 8 hours
between charges.
3. Make sure the receiver is at least 8 inches away from the monitor and is
placed in a location relatively free of strong electromagnetic or transmission
sources. This helps to ensure optimal reception of the keyboard and mouse
signal.
4. Your computer should be off during the entire hardware installation
and channel selection process.
5. The rechargeable batteries for the mouse must be charged for 8 hours
before first use.

4. Wireless ID Setting
The mouse, keyboard and receiver each contain two channels, and each
channel contains 256 IDs that are randomly selected when you press the ID
button. This ID-recognition function helps protect against interference
from other wireless devices in the same environment. After installing the
hardware, inserting the batteries and charging the mouse batteries, you
must set the IDs of the receiver, mouse and keyboard. This process should
happen while your system is booting-up, but before logging in to
Windows.
Important: Whenever you want to set the IDs of both the keyboard and mouse,
you must first set the receiver ID and keyboard ID, and then set the receiver ID and
mouse ID, as described in this procedure.
4.1 Synchronizing your Receiver, Keyboard and Mouse
1. Turn the computer on.
2. Press the ID button on the top of the receiver once. The LED light will
start to blink.

3. Turn the keyboard over and locate the ID button near the left footpad. Press
the ID button with a blunt pointed object (like the tip of a ballpoint pen),
and hold until the receiver light is solid. This may take up to 20 seconds.

during the keyboard setup (step 3), you must start over with step 2 and set the
receiver ID.
4. Press the ID button on the top of the receiver once. The LED light will start

Important: If 30 seconds pass before you complete step 5, you must repeat
steps 4 and 5 to set the mouse ID. If the ID button is pressed more than one
time during the mouse setup (step 5), you must start over with step 4 and set
the receiver ID. You do not need to reset the keyboard ID.
6. To quickly verify that your new keyboard and mouse are properly
synchronized, depress a key or two on your keyboard. If the LED on the
Receiver blinks steadily, then it has made the connection. For the mouse,
simply move it around on a flat surface and click a button or two. If the LED
on the receiver blinks fast and steady, then the mouse has made the
connection as well.
7. Now both the keyboard and mouse should be communicating properly. If
they do not seem to work please check for proper installation of the
batteries and repeat the steps again.
Notes:
1. You must follow the procedure above to set the ID of the receiver, keyboard
and mouse.
2. Once the receiver ID button is pressed you have 30 seconds to complete the
entire process, or you will need to begin again.
4.2 Replacing Batteries and Resetting ID Buttons
When the batteries are low, a battery low icon
will show on the rightbottom corner of the taskbar instead of the keyboard driver software icon
. . At that time you must either charge the mouse batteries or replace
the keyboard batteries with new batteries.
IDs need to be reset when batteries are changed. If you use rechargeable
mouse batteries with the Mouseport™, then this only applies to the keyboard.
When changing the batteries of the keyboard, you do not need to reset all
the IDs. Simply reset the ID for the receiver and keyboard. You must press
the receiver ID button first and then press the keyboard ID button. Refer
to steps 2 and 3 above.

Attaching the Wrist Rest
At your discretion, you may choose to connect the wrist rest with the
keyboard. To connect the wrist rest to the keyboard, follow the images
below:
6.2 Using the Mouse
After installing the mouse driver as described in section 5, you will be able
to start using the Mouse Control Panel by right clicking on the Mouse icon
in the Windows task bar. This icon should appear after restarting your computer.
The optical mouse uses a light to sense movement. Use the optical mouse
on an opaque surface; the optical mouse cannot work on a glass, translucent, or reflective surface.
The mouse goes into a sleep or suspend mode after 10 minutes of
inactivity. Move the mouse or click a button to wake it.
You may notice that the mouse moves the cursor on the screen twice as
fast as a standard mouse does. The mouse moves the cursor at 800 dots
per inch (dpi) while a standard mouse moves the cursor at 400 dpi. Change
the cursor movement speed by using the mouse properties in the Control
Panel.
7. Troubleshooting
If you are experiencing problems with your keyboard or mouse please
check the following:
1. Take out the receiver's connectors and check both of the receiver's mouse and
keyboard plugs for possible broken pins. If the plugs appear normal then
reinsert the plugs into their respective connectors on your PC.
11
2. Make sure the mouse plug is inserted in the mouse connector on your PC and
the keyboard plug is inserted into the keyboard connector on your PC.
Compare the icons on both the cable and backside of your PC if necessary.
3. Check to see if the batteries in the keyboard and mouse are installed correctly.
Make sure the polarity of the batteries corresponds with the polarity signs in
the battery compartment.
4. Replace the keyboard batteries and/or charge the mouse batteries to make
sure the batteries are not low in power. If you are replacing the keyboard
batteries, you will need to reset the ID (see section 4.2). The mouse batteries
must be charged for 8 hours before initial use.
5. Check to see if the channel switch for the receiver, keyboard and mouse are set
to the same channel. Try the alternate channel for the receiver, keyboard and
mouse in case the initially selected channel appears to work improperly.
6. Other devices in the vicinity of the receiver may cause interference. It is
strongly recommended to place the receiver at least 8 inches away from the
monitor and other electronic devices in order to prevent signal disturbance.
For better reception, use the receiver on nonmetallic surfaces.
7. If your PC system's BIOS setup has options for the keyboard or mouse, make
sure they are set to default settings. If you are not familiar with the BIOS, refer
to your PC's manual for more information.
8. If you have problems using the sleep button, make sure that the power
management in your PC has been enabled both in the BIOS and in Windows.
For more information on your PC's BIOS settings refer to your PC's manual. For
more information on how to enable the power management features in
Windows refer to your Windows manual.
9. If you have problems using the extra browser buttons and/or the special mouse
functions, make sure you have installed the keyboard and mouse driver
correctly as described in section 5 "Software Installation." Also check that your
hardware requirements meet those listed in this manual.
10. Use the mouse only on a clean, flat surface in order to ensure smooth and
accurate cursor action. Do not use the mouse on glass, translucent, or
reflective surface.
11. Keep all items away from direct sunlight, moisture, dirt, extreme heat and
abrasive chemical (cleaning) solutions.
12. Should the receiver, the keyboard or mouse become accidentally immersed or
splashed by liquids, switch off your PC immediately, unplug all items and refer
to your dealer for further assistance.
