    Sorry if this is an age old question but my Tab won't recognise my keyboard and I was wondering if there is anything I can do to make it find it. It is a keyboard/case in one with a micro USB, so no adapter needed, but whenever I plug it in, my Tab doesn't even realise I've plugged something in. Any help appreciated, thanks

    You have to plug a keyboard in with an OTG adapter, so make sure that the keyboard cable is wired as OTG. If not you'll have to buy an OTG adapter cable. (They're about $2 on Amazon.)

    (BTW, even if the keyboard is wired OTG, and you add an OTG cable, it won't cause any problem.)
