    Exclamation [SOLVED] Keyboard Lock

    Hi guys Im just wondering has anyone else been having promlems with the locking mechanism on their keyboard docks? Ive been having an ongoing problem with mine where the lock simply stops working and the tablet can be removed without using the switch. initially this was coming and going but now it seems to be completely broken which is very frustrating when Im travelling as they fall apart the whole time in my bag. I think im going to return it to the store, Ive been hesitant to do this because the RMA procedure where I bought it is quite a lengthy process.

    I don't know any way of fixing a wonky switch other than (a) sending it for a fix, or (b) if you're handy, taking the dock apart and having a look at the mechanism. I know there are a few threads around the site of people that have taken the dock apart because of spillage. They say there's not all that much to them... no experience with it myself. Perhaps someone who's done it will stop by and let you know what's involved...other than that, it's a retail swap/or rma to ASUS.

    re: [SOLVED] Keyboard Lock

    I've got the same issue. When I insert the tablet into the dock, I can hear the "lock" latch click and I see it move. But it doesn't seem to actually keep the tablet docked. I've literally had it fall right off.

    I would exchange or send your dock in for repair.

    I know first hand that trying to fix the dock mechanism is a huge headache with the springs and such in there.

    re: [SOLVED] Keyboard Lock

    Okay finally solved this. Note that I have a TF700T but I have the "prime" keyboard as it was $50 cheaper and has longer battery. Anyway, I had to look closely at how the mechanism works there's a little spring that if you push down, the lock "snaps" into place. Okay so I verified THAT worked. Then I made sure each lock had the "hook" on it (ie--made sure that it hadn't broken off). Then I realized:

    I wasn't pushing the tablet down fully into the keyboard dock. You really have to push it down so that the "switch" goes ALL the way to the right. If you don't do that, the switch only goes halfway.

    Once I did that, it works fine. Just needs a LOT of pressure to snap into place, IMO.

    Glad you got it sorted. It can take a bit of pressure to make this happen correctly.
