My detachable keyboard is not working!

Hello!

I have less than a month with my tablet. One day, my detachable keyboard stop working!! (it is not a case keyboard, it is the one that comes with the tablet). I have done everything!!

I turned on/off the HDMI settings

I changed the owner user to the invited mode one

I reset the tablet

I restore to the fabric version

I put an USB keyboard and put the detachable keyboard and only the USB one worked

When I go to Settings, Language and input text, in the keyboard section only appears "USB android keyboard" instead of "RCA detachable keyboard".

I dont know what else I can do, please help me!! I dont have money for buying a new keyboard!

Sorry for my English, I speak spanish.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I have replaced two keyboards and it did it again. What a piece off $@$*. Poor quality stay away.

My key board doesn’t work too! Can’t even find a site to sell just the keyboard. Is there a way to type just using the touch screen? Like I phones the keyboard comes on your screen.

Hola,

Si adquirió la tableta de nuevo, hay una garantía de 12 meses en el dispositivo.

Primero compruebe la fecha de compra en el recibo de compra y luego consulte la declaración de garantía en la Guía del usuario en cuanto a lo que tiene que hacer para reclamar una reparación o reemplazo de garantía.

Si no puede encontrar la guía aquí hay un enlace a la Guía del usuario de su tableta (creo). Desplácese a p.EN-32 para leer las disposiciones de la garantía.

Hi,

If you purchased the tablet from new, there is a 12 month warranty on the device.

First verify the purchase date on the sales receipt and then consult the warranty statement in the User Guide as to what you have to do to make a claim for a warranty repair or replacement.

If you cannot find the guide here is a link to the User guide for your tablet (I think). Scroll to p.EN-32 to read the warranty provisions.

Apologies for the poor Spanish grammar. I am using an online translation service.

I cleaned the conctacts with a little alcohol and a cotton squab and now it works just fine without taking anything apart WHICH VOIDS YOUR WARRANTY if it is still under it or an extended one. I just typed this whole message after spending a few minutes of cleaning the contacts.

@sac49er neither is working for,but I'm tampering with the settings to see the results.

Thank you Soo much!! This also worked for me.

Thank you, this worked. I kept searching for an answer and though not my model the same solution worked for my (much older) RCA tablet. Can't believe I didn't think of cleaning the contacts, keyboard and mouse pad working again. Lesson learned :-)

The problem could be the connector cable that is attached to the keyboard docking port. From the opening and closing of the keyboard, the cable could have deteriorated thereby not sending signals to the tablet. The cable is hidden within the design of the hinge so it may be that a new one is required.

hopefully this helps ! remove the three small phillips screws on the pivot arm , you will see the underside of the contact point ! Add a thin piece of plastic to this which will push the contact point up ! Be sure it is only 1/32 “ thick ! Reinstall cover and it should work !!! I just fixed mine

Perhaps the keyboard battery is out of charge, in which case the bluetooth link will not function?
