SOURCE: I have an irulu 7" tablet that I got for Christmas. So far the tablet is working, however the keyboard case does not work when plugged into the USB port at the top of the tablet. It is my understandin

The OTG adapter is not guaranteed to work with all tablets, or peripherals. It has to be enabled by the manufacturer. having said that, If the supplied keyboard doesn't work directly, then It sounds like the tablet, or keyboard, is busted.

How do I connect the Irulu keyboard to my tablet, besides by plugging the mini usb into the port on the side? Because my tablet doesn't recognize, that it is even plugged in.


first of all, make sure that your tablet has an On the go USB port or data port if not, it can only be used to charge. If you connect our tablet to a computer usb port, and your computer recognises it, then you have a data port.

If you plug in a usb memory stick, and your computer can not read it, it does not have a USB to go port.
Also, some Cable adapters are On the Go wired, and may not work properly.
It may also be that the USB port is not providing enough power from the tablet to the keyboard. In that case, buy a split power usb cable, and plug the red (power only) into a usb charger or powered usb hub.

Have a Polaroid tablet and trying to hook up a usb keyboard to it and it is not working, how can in do this?


If it is a standard USB keyboard, that is probably your problem. Tablets are not like Windows PCs, where everything USB is plug & play. Tablets usually run some version of Android as their OS, and manufacturers may or may not support keyboards. If they do, they will specify what keyboards will work with your tablet. Tablets are a lot like Apple products - not everything off the shelf will work and sometimes it must be manufacturer's products only.

Not sure on you particular model but most tablets have 2 mini USB ports one has a power supply and the other is just an I.O port .

Try your keyboard in the other port if you have one and it should work. If not it may be faulty.

I have a kocaso tablet. Model #m752h. What settings do I use for the keyboard case?


I am not sure if you need a specific setting to use the keyboard or if your tablet will recognize it once you connect the keyboard to the tablet. To connect the keyboard to the tablet use the USB cable or the OTG cable that came with the tablet. I cannot give you specifics on how to connect because I am not familiar with that tablet, but you can read the instructions in the user's manual of your tablet. I am also providing some links to help you.

USB keyboard not working


The biggest problem with tablets and phones is the micro USB socket. They are easy to break if you put them in the wrong way round and it is not always easy to see if they are connected correctly.
Check the USB plug and the the tablets socket are not damaged.
Check that USB keyboard works in another device and that another USB input device works in the tablets USB socket.
I am suprised it works at all. You state you are using Android 2.2 yet USB hostmode was only introduced with Android 3.1

There are some apps in the play store like USB device info which may help. For proper debugging you need an APK which is not for the average user. http://visualgdb.com/tutorials/android/usbdebug/
But cables and plugs are 98% of the problem
Good Luck

How to activate/use external keyboard with tablet


Try this Coby-related post, which I found... Directly quoted:

"The tablet is setup so that whenever you will be using the keyboard you will have to set it up! So with the machine on and the keyboard plugged into the tablet you select "settings" on the main screen. On the next screen you will need to scroll down to "Advanced Settings". On the next screen you will scroll down to "USB BUS MODE" and deselect the button removing the green check mark. You then select the Curved arrow on the side above the silver button wich backs you back out to the main screen. Now whenerver you open a screen requiring key imput you will be able to use the keyboard."

TC1100 onscreen keyboard.


Use a USB keyboard and do a system restore.
Use a USB keyboard to access HP.com and search for a download there.
Use a USB keyboard to backup, reformat, reinstall factory image.Takes longer, but probably best overall fix, HDD may have a few bad sectors and format will fix or avoid them. May be a great time for a 7200 RPM drive and some more RAM! 2Gb RAM and a high speed drive will breathe a bunch of life into a great tablet like the tc1100.
