Currently Being ModeratedMar 13, 2010 6:58 PM (in response to sjr1038)Try re pairing the bluetooth keyboard using the old keyboard to input the 8 digit code. Maybe have the bluetooth mouse turned off and any other bluetooth device well out of range when pairing the keyboard. If and when you get the keyboard paired then try the mouse.

Currently Being ModeratedMar 14, 2010 5:52 AM (in response to sjr1038)Thanks. I just re-set the PRAM and then tried reconnecting both devices as suggested. I'm still getting nothing. Both devices are now showing up under the bluetooth menu, but I can't connect to them ... not from that menu, not from Bluetooth preferences, and not from the keyboard/mouse preferences. And they're definitely turned on, with brand new batteries, and all within two feet of the computer.
Speaking of bluetooth preferences, could I have knocked them out of whack somehow? I see File Sharing Settings and Advanced Settings; what should actually be checked in them in order for this to work? Looks like I have System Preferences Version 7.0, running with OS 10.6.2. Under "Serial ports" I have only "Bluetooth-PDA-Sync" listed, Type RS-232, and that's checked on. There's another checkbox underneath what looks like a key icon, and that is NOT checked.iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.1)
Currently Being ModeratedMar 14, 2010 6:30 AM (in response to sjr1038)I just searched the archives and discovered this solution (resetting the SMC) ... it worked! Thanks for the help!
