PreCentral: Pair the HP Wireless keyboard to a TouchPad

Recommended Posts

This tip is only for those using a TouchPad and the official HP TouchPad Wireless Keyboard

Pair HP wireless keyboardWhile you can use just about any Bluetooth keyboard with your TouchPad, there are a lot of benefits of using the official HP TouchPad Wireless Keyboard that was released alongside the tablet. In addition to some unique webOS keys on the device that will improve your webOS experience, the process of actually pairing the device is incredibly easy and will take only a matter of seconds to complete.

To pair your keyboard with your TouchPad:

  1. Ensure that your Bluetooth keyboard is turned off before you start (with the keyboard laying face down, the power button on the back should be pushed to the left)
    •  This is important since the keyboard will only try to pair to a device for 1 minute after it's turned on
  2. Swipe down from the top-right corner of the TouchPad's screen to bring up the Device menu and choose Bluetooth, then Bluetooth Preferences
  3. If Bluetooth is not already turned on, toggle the ON/OFF switch to turn it on
  4. Press the "+ Add Device" and then select "Keyboard" from the "TYPE" dropdown list
  5. Turn your Bluetooth keyboard on (with the keyboard laying face down, the power button on the back should be pushed to the right)
  6. The TouchPad should search for the device and find it within a few seconds
  7. Tap "HP TouchPad Wireless Keyboard" under the FOUND DEVICES section and you are done

Congrats, your keyboard has now been paired to the TouchPad for you to use. Note that after a short period of inactivity, the keyboard will power down and disconnect from the TouchPad. However, you just need to tap any key on the keyboard and it should automatically reconnect, as long as the TouchPad's Bluetooth is turned on

      Have got the Bluetooth set up ok, was a struggle as instructions only cover Optical.
      Problem is TV does not remember it has to use the soundbar by bluetooth when switched on it is back to internal speakers then I have to go back into menu and set it up again.
      First time with bluetooth and surprised it so hard as have been led to believe it is an easy system.
      Thanks

      Hi,
      I use the YouTube app on my LG OLED55B6V smart TV on a daily basis. Does anyone know in 2020, if there is an external keyboard I can use on the YouTube app? 
       
      Thanks.

      Hi, i've a B&O Beolit 15 connected to my 32SM6300 tv, but there is a very slight sound delay. I've tried the sound sync, but I am still getting the issue. Does anybody know of a way round this? Kind regards, Andrew

      I output the sound from my LG 75UJ657A to external speakers through a bluetooth connection, but it doesn't automatically connect to the bluetooth device when I turn the TV on. Whenever I cycle the TV off and, then, back on, the TV asks if I want to connect to the bluetooth device, and I have to select "yes" with the remote. My smart phone automatically connects to all the bluetooth devices I've set it up with. When I start my car, my phone connects automatically to the car stereo/phone system, and it does the same with other bluetooth speakers I have. This is what I want my TV to do.
      How do I get my LG 75UJ657A to automatically connect to the bluetooth device I've set up with it?
