    Hi, I have a new Galaxy tab A, and I tried to use it with my old keyboard (that allways worked fine with other devices).
    I tried turn in on and off wi-fi and bluetooth, but it doesnt seems works.
    What else can I do?
    Thanks!

    Hello.
    I think the reason for this is the Tab A chipset, like many devices, does not support USB Hosting. So you cannot attach an OTG cable or MHL cable.

    Try plugging in a common or garden (or field!) mouse, if you have an OTG cable.

    Hmm. Sorry. Don't know.
    There seems to be references to both a Samsung and a Sony bkb 10.
    You will know more than I.
    On the Sony site it says only with HID compliant devices:

    "Compatibility
    The Bluetooth® Keyboard BKB10 is compatible with any device with support for Bluetooth® profile Human Interface Device Profile (HID)*. Refer to your device specifications for information."

    Hopefully someone will know more, or try again in this forum:

    There are both Samsung devices. And when I turn on bluetooth the tablet just doesnt find the KB. Nothing, as if doesnt exists. I can use the KB with my Samsung phone just fine.

    There is a forum for these hidden under Samsung Android Tablets - More Samsung tablets - Tab A, but through about 100 threads so far no direct answer, though others had bluetooth problems.
    Best to contact Samsung support, but post there as well if the Moderators don't move this thread for you.

    Bluetooth can't connect to Jawbone or Basis activity trackers

    Why can't I pair my bluetooth keyboard case with my tablet?

    Why can't I get my Samsung Tab A to recognize most bluetooth devices?
