The Logitech MK300 is a wireless keyboard and mouse system that gives you the freedom of wireless operation. With that freedom may also come a few technical hiccups that may interfere with your ability to operate the keyboard.

USB Receiver

Despite being wireless, the MK300 still makes use of a USB receiver that allows your computer to wirelessly connect to the keyboard. If the keyboard is not working, check that the USB receiver is securely connected to a USB port on your computer. Try connecting it to another USB port to ensure a faulty USB port is not the problem. The receiver may also be receiving interference from other electrical equipment, so place it away from metallic surfaces and electrical devices.

Wireless Connection

The keyboard must be synced with the receiver before you can use it. To sync, press the "Connect" button on the top of the USB receiver and quickly press the corresponding "Connect" button on the bottom of the keyboard.


If the keyboard is too far from the USB receiver, it will not operate properly. The keyboard should be able to operate at a distance of up to six feet, but other interference may limit that. For the best results, place the keyboard within eight inches of the USB receiver.


Since the keyboard is wireless, it runs on battery power rather than through the power of your computer. To check the battery level, press the "Battery Status Check" hotkey on the top right of the keyboard. Keyboard batteries should last around 15 months. If the keyboard does not respond, the batteries may be dead. Replace them with a fresh pair of AAA batteries.
