Default S3L, keyboard & mouse not working when connected to surface.

Hey all,

Got an S3L and it's been great but exited to desktop and key/mouse no longer work when connected to surface. They do work when the mouse is connected to the engine - keyboard still attached to surface.

Outside of an entire console restore has anyone gotten around this? It won't stop my show but it's disconcerting. Got a call into support... waiting to hear back.

That's weird. Is this something you can reproduce or a one-time issue?

I have experienced something similar. But different.

The S3 surface would not boot up if the keyboard and mouse were connected. All the ch. colour indicators were flashing constantly. It was impossible to switch from live to studio mode.

The only thing that solved the problem was to eventually disconnect the keyboard and mouse and power cycle the S3 and then re-flashing into live. mode. Connected the keyboard and mouse after that, and it worked again.

Not funny to be in that situation in a festival changeover!

What's the model of keyboard and mouse? Was a keyboard backlit, i.e. drawing too much power? Did this happen with the latest VENUE SW?

Not something serious, mainly because the workaround you discovered is actually what you need to do when if get all LEDs flashing.
