Hi

Anyone encountered the type cover keyboard not responding at all? There isn't even light on CAP lock key. I'd tried rebooting, disconnect and reconnect, boot to UEFI (POWER + VOL+), all no help. Out of warranty set.

Guys, is the power brick exchangeable under warranty?

Can't charge my surface.
Yes. FOr my case, they just send a replacement.

so far nope. Currently aiming a USB hub as the surface dock is expensive....

Clean the contact points.

If that doesn't work you'll need to find someone else with a Surface Pro 3/4 to test if it is your Type Cover that is at fault.

Thanks. I used my boss type cover and it's also not working. Hopefully it's just a matter of the contact point needing cleaning. Will try it tonight. Without keyboard is seriously handicapped.

thanks! I'll check around if there's any cheaper alternative before extending my warranty.

Jialat. I tried my typecover on my boss SP4 and it's working. Seems like it's my sp4 port having issue. Last night tried cleaning it with alcohol swipes and it's not working.

Tonight gonna try reset my SP4 and hope that it's just some erratic driver that's causing the issue.

Anyone has a reliable shop I can go to to get my SP4 checked? It's my primary comp and I can't afford sending it back to MS for servicing. Thanks.

So far, I'm using it with Logitech mouse/keyboard combo at home and office, so working at desk is still ok. But, it's working outside that's handicapping me without the use of the typecover. Haizzz...

Yes, shutdown, 2 buttons for 15 secs, in the process go into UEFI mode, then blank screen, then normal power up.

Tested my keyboard with my boss SP4 and it's working. So, it seems that it's the port.

Googled and read some said that Creator Update brick the keyboard port, but couldn't find anything concrete.
