Microsoft, Wireless Laser Keyboard, 6000 v2.0, has a battery indicator that goes dark a few seconds after changing batteries and will not respond. It's about two months old (30 day warranty!). Is there a fix for this?
Addit'l info: The associated mouse continues to function fine, using Windows XP Tablet.

The shop that sold warrant for 30 days, but I'm pretty sure you could get a replacement from Microsoft (which should at least have a 1 year warranty). I don't know where you could ask such a replacement but will google for that a bit

I found that:

You should call 1 800 852 3543

 If you really, really don't wanna phone, try a mail with your situation, the P/N and the S/N to : MSSCSea@microsoft.com

You might have a modern environment with all sorts of high-tech equipment, but what makes it worthwhile is how you seamlessly bring together the presentation with audio, video and lighting. The ATEN Control System provides integrated control and system automation.

Thanks for diligent effort, Kaddict. I took your advice and went to ms website. FYI, the 800 tel # in earlier solution was not valid for my location.
Have a good night!

Turns out that  the problem was how I was going about re-establishing the connection between the keyboard and the receiver.
The correct procedure is to press and hold the buttons on both the receiver and keyboard simultaneously for about 10 seconds.
