Fix Touch Cover Keyboard not working/responding issues

I have bought Surface RT about 3 weeks ago. Today when I am typing words within email app, the Touch Cover Keyboard suddenly stops responding. I press any key and nothing happens. Try using the trackpad gestures also not working. Is there irritating defects or hardware issues with Surface? How can I fix the Cover issues?

If the Touch Cover Keyboard with RT tablet is not working or no responding, try the following methods to solve it.
* Detaching Touch Cover or Type Cover and then reattaching it.
* Check the magnetic connections for debris and make a cleaning.
* Returning or exchanging your device. You can also click the Surface Online Service Center to get support.

  1. I’ve had similar issues, specifically with the touch cover. I am currently on my second, the first being replaced. I find the touch keyboards response to be quite erratic. At times pressing a key “normally” will not see that key typed, while then repeating the same attempt but with far less pressure then works. There is no consistency, and I wonder if that is why Microsoft has vastly increased the number of sensors in the revised touch covers from something like 80 to over 1200. In general, I find myself correcting more errors than with any other typing device I have ever used, including virtual/screen keyboards. Basically, I cannot take my eyes off the keys if I want to keep typos to a minimum, and this is not the case for me typing on other devices. At tne very least, it takes quite a bit of getting used to, and I’m not at all sure it’s really worth the effort. Seems like somebody failed at reinventing the wheel.

  2. I recently replaced my windows rt tablet but when i connect the keyboard, the letters and and the number locks keys do not respond while only the mouse pad works.
