I have an Anker keyboard that I disconnected from Bluetooth this morning in another location from where it is. Now when I try to repair, the 6 digit code flashes only for half a second then disappears. It’s fully charged. I have a mac, OS Sierra.
Hi @Clio_Tilton , to switch between devices your often best to forget the device (if present on your Mac etc) and complete a fresh pairing connection. To complete this on the A7721 you need to complete the following;
- Push the power switch to the ON position to turn on the keyboard. The power indicator will turn on for 2 seconds and then off.
- Stimultaneously press FN+Z to enter pairing mode. The Bluetooth indicator will start to flash.
- Activate your device’s Bluetooth function and search for the keyboard. Select the keyboard name to connect.
- Once they are successfully paired, the Bluetooth indicator will turn off.
I’m having the exact same issue with my A7726. I have tried everything. I have reset the computer, turned all bluetooth devices on and off, changed the batteries, continually tried the pairing mode FN+Z, and nothing is working. My macbook is recognizing the keyboard attempting to pair devices, and VERY briefly shows a pairing code (literally disappears in a 1/2 second). It’s driving me crazy that I can’t figure it our. HELP PLEASE!
I’m having the same problem. my A7726 was working fine. Now, today, it won’t pair. I tried the above and am getting zero response from my Macbook. I’m losing my mind here.
Yeah, I’m having a similar issue of frequent disconnecting. It almost feels like the battery terminals are loose or something. It seems to work better at certain angles.
Anyway, I reset the bluetooth connection, as was recommended above, and also installed some fresh batteries. Hope this works.
Although, if it is related to putting in fresh batteries, I only had the previous batteries in there for a few days. Having a keyboard that drains battery like a V12 wouldn’t be ideal either…
I had the exact same issue on my Mojave based Mac. These instructions worked perfectly, thanks!
How did u solve it plz? Going crazy too
I am having this same problem -I enter the 6 digit code and after a few seconds, it shows “connection failed”. There is no place for a battery on the Anker 7721. I’m getting nowhere.
I have issue with turning A7721 and response. iPad shows it’s connected but when I type, I get lag and spaces added.
Do I need to pair every time I turn off the keyboard?
Let us know if that fixes it or not.
Oh, I’ve rebooted a number of times. I ended up deleting keyboard and re-syncing. See how it does when I turn mouse/keyboard off and come back another time
Did anyone find a solution to this pairing problem? I enter the pairing code and my MacPro says “pairing failed”, I have rebooted, restarted many times. Nothing works.
