    Fix for TF300 Keyboard / Dock not working

    I recently bought a TF300 dock on ebay. When I received it I had similar issues as others. The tablet recognized and showed the icon for the dock being connected. The trackpad worked...the SD and USB worked. But the keys did not work. I got a good deal on the keyboard and although the ebay store was going to take it back, the shipping was going to cost 50% of what I paid for it. So I decided to tinker.

    I removed the screws from the back of the dock and hinge and carefully pried the back panel open. To do this I started at the USB port and carefully pried the case open.

    What I found was the locking mechanism for the 1 inch wide ribbon cable was not engaged. The locking mechanism is a small grey piece of plastic on a hinge. I pulled the lock up and pushed the ribbon cable all the way into the connector and pushed the locking mechanism down on the cable.

    That solved the problem. I figured that the mechanism came loose in shipping. Thought I would pass this on to others.

    Yeah! Return it! Once you opened it that may become difficult.
