Tab 4 bluetooth keyboard repeating letters

2018-01-12, 11:17 AM

Hello.  The Bluetooth keyboard l use with my Lenovo Tab 4 plus keeps repeating letters and sometimes whole words when I'm typing.  I don't have the same problem with the on screen keyboard. As far as I can see it may be a "bounce" issue but I can find no way address the issue on this device. 

Any help would be appreciated

                                                                      Thanks

                                                                           Sheldon 

Solved! See the solution

I had this same issue. If you go into settings and search for keyboards. In that setting menu is a virtual keyboard setting. Remove the Lenovo keyboard and use Gboard as the default keyboard.

Thanks very much for that. I couldn't find anything labelled keyboard in the settings menu. I did, however, notice a keyboard symbol bottom right of the screen in Word. After tapping on that I was able to apply the fix you suggested. I'm loathe to set your reply as a solution as I don't want other people to frustratingly look for keyboards in the menu if they have the same system as I do. Or, if I do set your reply as a solution, would anybody reading your solution see the entiritry of our correspondence? that would be fine. Sorry, I'm not yet  au fait with how the community works.

                               Thanks again,

                                     Sheldon

Hola, glad that worked for you. I think your method is the same as finding the keyboard setting in the system settings. If you move it solved everyone can see the whole thread.

This helped me too

Hi, solution containing keyboard settings did not work for me, neither. But when wifi is turned off in this tablet, bluetooth keyboard works fine. With wifi switched on the letters are running in series ....

I am having the same problem with my tab 4 8 plus.  It keeps repeating letters on the touch screen. When I put the tab to charging, it types normally. The service center said the latest system software has bug. No idea how to fix it.

I solved this problem with "external keyboard helper pro". you can turn off key repeating in application settings.
