    T100 keyboard not working and charging/using via micro usb

    The keyboard is not detected unless I tip and hold it manually so I'm assuming that there is a connection fault.

    The machine works normally as a tablet, I want to use something called OctoPrint (3d printer control) it's installed and running But I need 2 usb ports or to be able to charge the T100 through the micro usb port whilst using the micro use port to control a printer.

    Are there any powered usb hubs that will charge the tablet at the same time I'm using the port for the printer?

    Even better is there any sensible way to fix the keyboard?


    Thanks All

    I don't believe the T100 battery can be charged through the keyboard USB port... only through the microUSB port on the tablet.

    I do believe there was a discussion here for an option to use the microUSB port to charge the tablet as well as allow the connection of a powered USB hub. It required a special USB splitter cable to make it happen but I don't remember if anyone here ever purchased the cable to try it.

    You might search here for that thread. stumble across it, I'll link it here.

    So far all I have discovered about the workings of USB ports suggests that you can't charge through one and at the same time use it to control a printer
