    iPad Bluetooth / Motorola Wireless Keyboard help

    Hi guys,

    Newbie here. My iPad 1 will not connect to the new motorola bluetooth keyboard. It finds the keyboard, but when I hit pair a pop up box appears and dissapears within a second. It talks about entering a passkey (1875 I think) into the keyboard, but it goes to quick. Then the message that pair was unsuccessful.

    According to my research, the Keyboard supports HID, and motorola says it should work.

    1. Can I manually change the bluetooth password on my iPad?
    2. Anyone have any work arounds for this issue?
    3. Is there an app that could help me?


    My iPad 1 is running 4.2.1 and works with other Motorola stereo headsets. S9HD to be specific.

    I have factory reset the keyboard and still nothing.

    Thanks in advance for your help,

    Bryan

    I don't have this particular Bluetooth keyboard but I have a similar one but have not experienced this problem. Indeed, I haven't seen other members report problems in pairing a Bluetooth keyboard. On my particular keyboard the default pass code was '0000' though, so I wondered where the number you were using comes from. I'm assumed too that you've tried the power-off, power-on reset on the iPad (you mention you've reset the keyboard but resetting the iPad too might help).

    Hopefully other members with this particular keyboard will be able to report on their experiences.

    If you are using the new motorola bt keyboard, to pair with the iPad, hold the V A and R keys on the keyboard when powering up the keyboard. (as mentioned in the keyboard guide)

    Pair the keyboard using your iPad. Then you'll get a prompt to enter in a 4 digit passcode and enter on the keyboard. (it wont flash by like before) Presto!

    I just wanted to say, I just got the New IPad (Ipad 3) and was having the same problem with my Motorola bluetooth keyboard. I tried your suggestion and it worked right away. THANK YOU!!

    Thank you for your post. I was trying forever to connect my motorola bt keyboard and holding down the "v-a-r" keys as per the manual, but it was only by shutting down and restarting my pod that it was then able to connect. thanks for the suggestion!!!

    This also worked for me. I bought the keyboard for an Android Xoom tablet a couple years ago and it worked out of the box, but the iPad gen4 exhibited the same symptoms mentioned by the first posting. After holding the V-A-R keys on a power-up the key/PIN prompt on the ipad remained persistent and I was able to enter it on the keyboard and connect. Thank you!

    My keyboard instruction manual does not even mention this V A and R trick. I struggled to get the keyboard to connect; found this suggestion and it worked right away. Thanks so much!
