Hi

When I try to connect the mini Bluetooth keyboard to the raspberry, I cannot see my device.

What Raspberry Pi are you using? Is the keyboard fully charged and turned on? What are you doing on the keyboard to initiate pairing?

I am using RP 3b. Yes, it is fully charged for more than 4 hours. I clicked the blue button to pair it with the RP but getting an error the device can't be paired.

Thanks

So it sounds like it is seen, but can't be paired? Can you post a screen cap of the error message you are getting.

I am seeing the same kind of behavior with my Bluetooth 10" Keyboard. It will work sporadically with the Pi. Sometimes it will connect but when you press the keys the response time it takes to see characters on the screen with the Raspberry Pi is very long and many characters are skipped. When I try and pair the keyboard with an Android phone (the first time I used it with the phone it was great and worked like a champ) it will not pair. When I press the "Connect" button next to the power switch, I can see the keyboard as a Bluetooth 3.0 Keyboard on my phone. Then I select it for pairing and I type in the 6 digit PIN code that comes up on the phone screen. When I try and pair the keyboard that way it is like I never did anything on the keyboard.

As I said, it worked well the first time but now this keyboard won't connect and is not usable with either the Pi (RPi Model 3 B running latest Raspbian Stretch) or with my Samsung Phone.

Is there a manual for this keyboard? Is there a reset procedure to take it back to factory settings before it was ever paired up with anything?

Thank you for allowing me to share on this posting.
