    B70 Dock keyboard worked once - what do you think is happening here?

    Hi all - I'm experiencing the following symptoms with my B70 TF101+Dock:

    - When I dock the TF, it always says I should Enable the ASUS keyboard in my profile, even if it already is the active keyboard

    - When the TF turns off the screen while docked, ANY KEY ON THE KEYBOARD wakes up the screen

    - AS SOON as the TF wakes, the keys no longer work.

    - The Pad ALWAYS works.

    - The soft Android keyboard doesn't work when the TF is docked (so currently I have no keyboard while docked)

    - The keyboard setting is always set ON when touching the message tray KB icon.

    - It worked once. Taking the TF out and redocking it caused it to stop working. No idea what triggered this one-time "luck".

    - Yes, it's firmly seated, latch fully to the right.


    I tried off/on, selecting other keyboards, and then returning, and so on. No additional soft keyboards have been loaded. I've tried cold boots while docked and undocked. I've reset the tab.

    Tab is at .21 and the dock is at 0213

    If anyone has any idea what's going on here, or can recognise these symptoms as definite indicators to have the dock replaced under warranty, then please let me know.

    Sounds to me like you have a dud keyboard. Strange that the keys wake it up, but do not work. The touchpad and the Power/USB circuits are different cables from the keyboard cable itself.

    I would try to return to the retailer or send back to ASUS for repair.

    Thanks. I just wanted a battle scarred trench fighter like yourself to confirm this. It has a feeling of being a software issue, yet it just won't work. Thanks again - I'm sending it back under warranty.
