The key board will not stay powered up. Yes I have changed batteries, unpluged router,
Is the on/off switch on back of the keyboard fully flipped to the ON position (might want to toggle it a few time just to make sure)?
I have had my Revue for about 4-5 weeks, and even leave the switch on the back of it on many times at night, and I still have the same batteries.( keyboard ).
I may be wrong, but, if you leave the switch in the on position after a " certain " amount of time, it automatically shuts itself off..
I could be wrong, but I remember reading that somewhere..
Not sure about that, my Revue keyboard's been very responsive and hasn't shutoff since I bought it, lucky maybe?
Hey skoretsky, do you mean about James Brady?
I am not having any issues here.
But what I meant was, after a certain of time of inactivity, it doesn't drain the battery, or it shuts itself off.
The keyboard that is.
Yeh meant to respond about James. Thought I had read the same thing about the keyboard you did (can't remember where).
3 months with the Revue, I have never "shut off" the keyboard via the switch and am still on the original batteries with no problems.
i just read under normal use 1 year batt life only need to power off if your not going to use it for a few weeks you can fine the same info in the help info on apps of your revue . sounds like you have a bad keyboard . i have never power off my key board in the 7 weeks same batt still going good with lots of use on it
I guess I would also ask how you know it is powering off? There isn't a status light or anything on the keyboard.
