KG-0851 with RG-0983?

HP Recommended
HP Wireless Keyboard
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I have an HP 2.4GHz wireless keyboard model # KG-0851 (FCC ID: E8HKG-0851, P/N: 505143-371) and an HP 2.4GHz wireless receiver model # RG-0983 (FCC ID: E8HRG-0983, Assy. # WUG1137), both of which turned up among donations to a non-profit computer refurbisher where I volunteer.  Can this keyboard be made to work with this receiver?  If so, what is the procedure for connecting them?

 

The receiver does not have a physical "connect" button (or any physical control of any kind) on it.    I have tried unplugging and replugging the receiver then, within 60 seconds, pushing the "connect" button on the keyboard, but this has no effect.  I know the reciever is operational, since I have a mouse that works with it.  I don't know if the keyboard actually works, since there is no battery status light or any other indicator on it (at least, not that I can find).  I have verified that the batteries in the keyboard are good.

@Tony2001 

 

It is workable but who would pay for the cost

 

   (a) Sending BOTH to somewhere,

   (b) To check BOTH codes,

   (c) Re-program to allow other other device to have same code with the other

 

The code can very simple from 0000 to 9999 but we need to have a process.

 

For your second part. The receiver works with your mouse but won't work with your keyboard UNLESS mouse and keyboard are ONE set.

 

Hope this makes sense.

 

Regards.
