Mini Bluetooth keyboard

by Kml16 on Thu Feb 11, 2021 11:03 am

I'm having trouble pairing the mini Bluetooth keyboard with an android mobile device. The blue pairing light does not continue blinking after the pairing button has been pressed- should it or is that an indication that there be an issue? Device was charged overnight.

This keyboard?

I think there is a pairing button above #9 on the keypad (a thin long button) if you click that does the blue light start flashing? At the point you should see the device on your Android to pair with.

Thanks- it doesn't flash. The blue light comes on for a second, but does not remain lit or flash.

Here is an example pairing video (2.5min). He is using a watch, but does a good job of explaining the process. Let me know if this helps. Basically press and hold for 4-5 seconds the bluetooth above the 9.

Thank you for the video. It helped confirm that my device does not seem to enter pairing mode- my light does not continue to blink when trying to pair it, as it does in the video. I did another overnight charge as well just to make sure it wasn't a power issue, and it's still not working.
