My K800 Keyboard is blinking red while charging

What does that mean? It normally rotates through the 3 green bars when charging.

Does that persist? The red is rarely visible on a K800 that has got any juice in it.

But you are not the only one who has reported too many "red lights". At one stage there were suspicions here about a run of defective batteries.

If it stays like that and the green bars get nowhere, I would check that the USB cable is OK first. (A standard micro USB cable will do the trick.) It it still looks iffy, I would check that the batteries are properly seated. But don't mess around so much that it could screw your warranty. These keyboards have a three-year warranty. If it is not charging, ask for official support.

I changed the batteries and changed the cable and it is still blinking red when I try to charge it.

 

I will contact the official support, thank you.

One more suggestion, do you have a standalone USB charger? One from a mobile phone for example?

 

This would eliminate the PC and its power supply from the equation. An underpowered PC might not like the strain of charging up batteries.

That doesn't seem to be helping either. Still blinking red.
