    I updated my tablet as it directed me to to 4.2.2. and besides wiping all my apps folders more importantly now my Bluetooth keyboard does not work. I have this tablet for my job and NEED this keyboard to work. Is there a fix for this? I looked online and saw nothing really definitive.

    Welcome to the forums, it's good to have you here! When your tablet scans for the keyboard is it not seeing it all or is it seeing/connecting but not accepting input from it?

    My Samsung Tab 2 10.1 just updated to 4.2.2 from 4.1.2 a few days ago and I am experiencing the exact same symptoms. All my apps folders were gone, all my widgets as well, and indeed, more importantly, my Belkin keyboard no longer pairs. My device cant even see it. I can pair my phone and my tablet and I can pair my keyboard to my friends Iphone, so it NOT a hardware issue. Has there been any progress on this? I am no developer, but am willing to help in whatever way I can

    I assume you may have corrected your problem by now, but if not:-
    Go to settings>bluetooth>ook for new pairings and re pair your keyboard with tablet.
    Should be ok then. John P

    Hi John, Thanks for the reply. I had tried that yesterday, but unfortunately it did not pair. I had also tried to see if it would be able to locate other bluetooth devices, but the tablet simply won't find any. Any other suggestions are welcome. Thanks in adv.

    Hello, I am new to this forum, but I wanted to tell you that I have the same problem. I own a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 WiFi and a Kensington KeyFolio Expert Bluetooth keyboard for Android. Just before updating I used my keyboard and all worked fine. I then updated from Android 4.1.2 to Android 4.2.2 and suddenly my keyboard is useless. I believe my Tab 2 sees the keyboard, because it appears in the Bluetooth section, but I get a warning, that my Tab 2 fails to communicate with the Kensington keyboard. I sent an e-mail to Samsung Netherlands and they replied that maybe my keyboard was not compatible with Android 4.2.2 (and/or higher). Is this true or is this a lot of BS? I really NEED the keyboard, because I use my Tab 2 for business purposes; without the keyboard the tablet is almost useless to me. Does anyone have a solution to this problem? It drives me crazy!

    I am Dutch, so maybe my English is not perfect. If so, I apologize.

    I use these steps everyday (at least until Samsung fix their snafu)
    • Remove the pairing (if it has'nt already gone ...again!!)
      Turn off the keyboard
      Turn off bluetooth on the TAB 2
      Turn on the keybaoard
      Turn on Bluetooth on the TAB 2
      Run scan if keyboard not present
      Pair with Keyboard
      Repeat everyday - Sumsung please fix

    This is what just worked for me:

    Disconnect and unpair keyboard
    Turn off and on
    Hold down F11 key until LED flashes different colours
    Bluetooth scan on tablet
    Pair again

    Didn't work first time but seems to working sweet now.

    Awesome Tip.
    Holding down the F11 key actually worked.
    It is a genuine samsung keyboard though.
