Using the keyboard
Your Bluetooth keyboard comes pre-paired with the P3. You only need to turn
on the keyboard and the P3 Bluetooth function by doing the following:
1. Tap the Settings charm > Change PC settings > Wireless.
2. Under Wireless devices, ensure the Bluetooth switch is set to On.
3. Press and hold the keyboard's Power button until the function LED comes
on (the function LED will turn on for 5 seconds and then turn off).
4. To turn off the keyboard, press and hold the keyboard's Power button until
the function LED blinks. Release the Power button.
Note: To save power, turn the keyboard off when not in use.
Pairing with the P3
If your Bluetooth keyboard loses connection with the P3, you will need to pair
again. After the pairing process is complete, you're able to turn your keyboard
off and on again without having to pair again.
1. Tap the Settings charm > Change PC settings > Devices
2. Tap the Acer Aspire P3 Bluetooth Keyboard option and then tap the
minus sign to the right to remove the device (it may take a moment for the
keyboard to be removed from the device list.)
3. Press and hold the Power button until both the battery and the function
LEDs blink repeatedly. Release the Power button. The keyboard is now in
pairing mode.
Note: The keyboard stays in pairing mode for three minutes.
4. Tap Add a device. The P3 searches for any available Bluetooth devices to
pair with.
5. Once it finds the Acer Aspire P3 Bluetooth Keyboard, tap it.
6. The screen now displays a six-digit passcode. Using the keyboard, enter the
passcode and press Enter.
Note: The passcode is only valid for one minute. If the passcode
disappears or if you enter a wrong passcode, repeat the steps above to
pair.
7. Once pairing is complete, the function LED will stop blinking.
Charging the keyboard
The keyboard cover comes with an embedded battery and a USB charging
cable. The cable's large end connects to the tablet's USB port and the small
end connects to the keyboard's micro USB port. When the battery LED quickly
blinks orange, the keyboard's battery is critically low and needs to be charged.
Keep the keyboard connected until the Battery LED is blue. You can still use
the keyboard as normal while it is charging.
NOTE: The tablet must be on for the keyboard to charge.

Q: My keyboard doesn't do anything when I press the keys.
A: There could be several reasons for this. Check the following:
1. The keyboard may be turned off. Press and hold the keyboard's Power
button until the function LED comes on (the function LED will turn on for 5
seconds and then turn off). If the function LED blinks, you have turned off
the keyboard. Press and hold the keyboard's Power button again until the
function LED comes on.
2. The keyboard may be out of charge. Follow the instructions in the "Charging
your tablet" section.
