Minix neo u1 A2 remote failure.

#1
Had my unit for several years now and pleased with it. However yesterday my A2 keyboard remote suddenly stopped working During yesterday and browsing around I see a number of A2 remotes have failed in the same way.

The remote is still communicating in that pressing the power off still does exactly that but no response to any of the other keys. Obviously put in two new batteries and gone through the procedure of repairing the device fn+P after removing baretries and then plug in usb dongle. Sure enough three flashes. But device still not working. Red leds flash on ever key press and fn key locks on leds although caps lock no longer locks on it‘s led. Any ideas anyone?

i really need this to work and very concerned About the number of reports with same fault. Help please

That's news to me! :unsure:

I haven't heard of many A2 failures.

I have two since 2014 and they still function!
That's not to say they make become faulty one day, but that can be said for anything!

I can only suggest you shutdown the device. Unplug the USB dongle. Power On the device. Insert the USB dongle.
