View Full Version : 3Play 4800 keyboard locks up.

We've only had this machine for a couple of weeks. I have updated the software. We are running the video boards at a basketball tourney so the machine is running for 14hrs a day. But during the day it has randomly started just typing a number/letter when the op tries to label a clip. The keyboard has to be unplugged for it to stop. We've tried different keyboards/usb ports. Usually exiting and restarting the session will clear it for a while. Any ideas on what is going on here.

We had the exact same problem on a football job the other day where the 3Play 4800 (First time out) had only been on for around four hours. Although I excited and restarted the session a few times like yourself I found hitting tag stopped it? Random eh!

Does it only happen with the NewTek Branded Keyboard?

I didn't have another Keyboard to hand to test it out i'm afraid!

Had the same problem again last Friday. Seems to stop when you press the tag button. Very strange.

Sounds like an issue with the tag function. Is the tag button turned on (lit up) on the control surface when it does this?

Yes it is.
