QUESTION: Is it possible to get an firmware to reset keyboard key when holding in connect button for 10 sec?
WHY I ASK:
I had lots of issues reconnecting/syncing keyboard (LX700) after I fixed encryption thru SetPoint in windows. Holding in the reset/connect button on the docking station seems to have only cleared the "key" from the dock/syncing station, but not the keyboard I guess.
It would not sync back online in linux, nor windows even how much I tried. I tried swapping usb for docking station and leaving battery out of keyboard for 10min. I had to connect another keyboard (actually another logitech receiver and keyboard (LX710)) - which just worked right after I plugged it in. I then logged in to windows, to get past the login screen which is of course password protected. I then tried replugging in my LX700, which wouldn't sync now either, but SetPoint appear with the encryption box (CTRL+ALT+F12) each time I pressed the connect button on the keyboard, which makes me think that keyboard was still using old keys after docking station did reset em. I guess SetPoint noticed keyboard was sending encrypted data without having the key, and asks user todo a handshake with CTRL+ALT+F12. (I guess docking station reset keys if you hold in for 10 sec? I thought I was reading about that somewhere , dont remember link) .
If my theory is wrong, please point me in the correct direction - because it was quite a fuss to get keyboard online again - and your connecting tutorials tells me it should be quite easy by clicking 2 connect buttons which it clearly was not :-/
Solved! Go to Solution.

Works like a charm, tested and even confirmed to work in linux ;-)
(Tho, since I can't control which wireless channel it picks up in linux with a new sync, I had to sync one of the devices while in windows - so they make sure they operate in each own channel - but that's doable )
EDIT: And I guess if I want to have it synched with encryption, I'll have to redo sync while in windows.
This info should be updated in the troubleshooting guide btw ;-)
