    Failed to attach keyboard with USB connector in android

    I bought recently bought a keyboard with a USB connector for my android device. But my android device is not recognizing the keyboard with the USB connector. What could be the reason? Is it a hardware fault of my android device or is this due to the compatibility issues of the external keyboard that I have purchased.

    May be both, First read the procedure, the brand you have bought about hoe to establish a proper connection. The procedure varies with brands. Some times you have to install a driver and sometimes the Mobile device automatically connects, so better read the procedure and find out a proper solution.

    If you are sure that you have done everything right and still its not working then you have to find out the compatibility and Hard ware issues.

    Hello

    Can you say which phone or tablet you are using?? Does it support otg cables means does it read pendrives and all

    Cant say for sure as you have not mentioned anything. As per my assumptions i think there can be several issues

    -->>the cable that you are using the otg cable might be faulty

    -->>the keyboard that you are using might be of too much power so it wont get connected to your phone or tablet stating a high powered device.

    -->>dont think you have any hardware issue because youe device is working fine right?? its just that your device doesnt support the keyboard.

    Thanks

    May be both. Hardware related issues are very rare but Compatibility issues are very common. And for any connecting device to be recognized by the Android OS, RESPECTIVE driver should be available and installed in the OS only then the connecting accessories will be detected.

    Check the stuffs you have bought and install the required data files in the Android device, If nothing helps then get help from the service center agents, They may no more than one way of doing the same thing.

    Hi,
    First make sure that the phone supports the Usb so that the phone recognizes the USB keyboard. If the feature is not available in your phone then it is not useful. There are certain keyboard that are not compatible with all the devices so it might be compatible with the device also check that if the keyboard is available. So times the keyboard might also be faulty so please check both the Keyboard and phone if it is working properly.
    Hope this Helps.

    If your phone not support usb on the go feature then you cant use usb device.
    There is app called "usb otg help" get it and try to mount device if not then try to search on
    Google that your phone supports usb on the go or not.here is good news
    For xperia 2011 devices that now you can use usb otg by custom modification.
    So enjoy..........
