Re: ThinkPad Compact Bluetooth Keyboard with TrackPoint Keeps Losing Connection

2019-02-27, 20:58 PM

We have 2 of these Bluetooth "ThinkPad Compact Bluetooth Keyboard with TrackPoint" keyboards and love them, but they do have a lot of connection problems.

 

In my case it only fully disconnects once or twice a month, but each day while typing it might lag or suddenly stop working for a few seconds while the little green light on the upper right hand corner does a pattern of 2 blinks - pause - 2 blinks.

 

I know the keyboard isn't going to sleep because it happens while I'm actively using the keyboard, it's almost like it just as problems communicating with the laptop (Carbon X1C).

I am having the same issues with the compact bluetooth keyboard - the biggest one is the dropping of the connection a few times each day.  Sometimes it will repeat the last keystroke for 3-5 seconds until it reconnects again, but obviously this messes up anything that is being done on the computer at that time.  I also replaced the keyboard, and the issue continued with the replacement.  It has been going on for over a year now, and I've actually swapped out laptops during this time as well (going from an X1 to a P1) and the issue happened on both computers.  So the keyboard obviously has some kind of design or driver flaws, and it's unfortunately that Lenovo isn't doing anything about it.

Yeah, same problem. You are not alone!

I assume Lenovo will not attempt a fix in the future. This issue has been well documented for a while now.

I've switched my wifi/bluetooth card to the Intel 9260, but the problem persists.

I have same problem. I think the keyboard simply disconnects from Bluetooth after some time of inactivity. I have MS keyboard or Logitech and they don't do it. Perhaps the gen 2 fixed the issue.

Is there going to be second version? I was under the impression that this keyboard was discontinued. Just like its support...

I have the same issue and tried all possibly available methods to revive.

Certainly looks like a systematic bug... disappointing...
