    vaio tap keyboard not working


    Okay, I restarted my computer because I was getting rid of KasperSky and needed to restart. And all of a sudden, my keyboard isn't working anymore. I changed the batteries so that's not it, also it lights up. I had this vaio tap for over 30 days already and this suddenly happened. Right now I am using a laptop, but I'd appreciate help asap! Thanks!

    Also, the volume buttons on the keyboard work.
    So it's just something with the actual letters not working

    It's a vaio tap 20. It's wireless.
    And it's still not working. I don't know what's the problem with it

    Could be Batteries, could be connection. There should be a "connect" button on the KB. try pressing that and resetting it. IR or BlueTooth? If it's Bluetooth, try re-pairing the device.

    I just want to let everyone know that it wasn't batteries or the connection.
    I took it into BestBuy and got a refund because they could not fix it, and in fact Sony is not continuing to sell the tablets because of the huge amount of problems.
    And now I have a dell and a HP tower which seems to be working great so far!

Hope it works for you
