My adwords is showing that my ad is not showing because another campaign uses similar keywords. However, the keywords relate to completely different product and are a different campaign. How can I get it fixed?

If there are two campaigns make sure they are targeting completely different areas also the advanced location options need to be checked.

Alternatively redesign the adgroup and get the keywords which are more relevant. As my guess is with negative keywords the performance might completely stop.
