Solved!

wireless keyboard KG-0851

HP Recommended
HP keyboard model KG-0-851
Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

(Board dropdown list above doesn't have relevant option)

 

I keep receiving a message on my screen indicating the batteries in my HP wireless keyboard, model KG-0851, need to be changed.  I install brand new (fully charged) batteries that are exactly the same as the old ones, but new batteries do not work.  The keyboard will not accept any new batteries, despite them also being the correct alkaline AAA batteries.  Yes, I do know how to correctly install AAA batteries!!

 

What's going on with this HP keyboard?  How do I make it accept the new batteries?  Pressing the Connect on the back of the keyboard button doesn't do anything.

 

I'm typing this before the old batteries go completely flat.

 

Batteries are AAA size, Alkaline, format E92, 1.5v.

 

Thanks.

I got the new batteries to work by using sandpaper to lightly sand the battery terminals, and to go through the steps to reconnect the wirless keyboard and mouse to the PC.  This seemed to work.
