[SOLVED] Arteck Keyboard Not Working

Dealing with Arteck keyboard issues can be frustrating, but fear not, as we’ve got solutions to common problems you might encounter. Whether your Arteck keyboard isn’t charging, struggling to pair, or experiencing key malfunctions, this guide will help you troubleshoot and get back to smooth typing in no time.

Arteck Keyboard Won’t Charge


Arteck keyboard isn’t charging after plugging in the micro USB charging cable.


Begin by ensuring that the charging cable is plugged in tightly into the keyboard and the power source. If the cable is connected properly and the keyboard is still not charging, try plugging it into another power source or replacing the charging cable.

Also, ensure that there’s no debris or dust inside the charging port. If none of the above solutions work, it is probably the depleted keyboard battery that needs a replacement.

Arteck Keyboard Not Going to Pairing Mode


The Arteck HB086 keyboard doesn’t go into pairing mode on pressing “FN+C.” According to the user manual* on pressing the above-mentioned key combination, the LED indicator should start blinking blue, depicting that the keyboard is in Bluetooth pairing mode.


Reset your Arteck keyboard by following the steps below to resolve the connectivity issue.

  • Fully charge your keyboard by plugging in the provided charging cable.
  • Now, turn off your keyboard and press the ESC key.
  • Keep holding the ESC key and turn your keyboard back on.
  • After five seconds, release the key, and you will see the keyboard producing flashlights, indicating the reset process is complete.

Please note you can also try resetting other models of Arteck keyboards using the steps mentioned above.

Arteck Keyboard Esc Key Not Working


The Arteck keyboard connected to the Surface Pro computer, and the ESC key does not provide the intended functionality. Especially while playing games that use the ESC key. Pressing the key opens the browser with a new tab rather than performing the intended function.


If you use the Arteck keyboard with any Windows PC, please press ‘Fn+E’ after connecting it through Bluetooth; if your connecting device has iOS, press ‘Fn+Q’ and press ‘Fn+W’ if the connecting device is Android. Then, your ESC key and other keys should perform the intended function.

Note you can try the solution mentioned above for any key not working properly on your Arteck keyboard.

Arteck Keyboard Goes to Sleep


The Arteck keyboard goes to sleep after roughly ten minutes. The user wants to stop the keyboard from going to sleep.


According to the Arteck (as stated in the user manual – with a link above), the keyboard sleeps after 10 minutes of inactivity for energy-saving purposes. The user can bring it back to life by pressing any key and waiting three seconds. But if you don’t want your keyboard to sleep unless you turn it off, please follow the steps below:

  • Access ‘Device Manager’.
  • Locate your keyboard and open its properties
  • Navigate to the ‘Power Management tab’.
  • Ensure that the option “Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power” is unchecked.
  • Save the settings.

Note: if you can’t find the power management tab after selecting your keyboard (Windows 10 issue), please follow this link.

Arteck Keyboard Not Connecting

Note that Arteck makes two different types of wireless keyboards. One that uses Bluetooth to connect and another that relies on a proprietary nano receiver dongle.

If you’re using the Bluetooth version, make sure you have BT support on your laptop or desktop computer.

If you’re using the USB receiver version, ensure that the dongle is plugged in – preferably directly into a USB port on the PC and not into a hub.

Arteck Keyboard Pairing But Not Working


The keyboard connects to the connecting device successfully but doesn’t type or register keystrokes. Turning the keyboard off and back on didn’t help.


We suggest you perform the system update on your connecting device because sometimes a missing update causes this issue. If your system is up-to-date, try un-pairing and re-pairing your Arteck keyboard. You can find the exact steps to pair your Arteck keyboard in the user manual.

Please note that you might want to do this un-pairing and re-pairing multiple times to get success.


When using Arteck keyboards, you might encounter some problems. But solutions are always within reach.

Some of these include

  • Ensuring proper charging
  • Resetting your keyboard to resolve pairing issues
  • Making key functions work correctly

The troubleshooting tips presented in this article can make your Arteck experience smooth and hassle-free. So, don’t let keyboard hiccups slow you down; take control with these solutions and enjoy your Arteck keyboard to the fullest.
