Hi, and welcome to JustAnswer/Pearl! My name is XXXXX XXXXX X am excited to get started with you.So I can better assist you, I will need additional information. Is your keyboard currently connected to your iPad mini?
I have just disconnected it from my ipad mini in order to connect to my ipad 4
Ok, now on your ipad when you go into settings< bluetooth, does your keyboard even show up
no it doesn't
Turn bluetooth off for 10 secs, then switch it back on again. Right after you switch it on, press the power button on your keyboard to place it into discovery mode. The power button should be at the upper left hand side
my keyboard only has an on/off switch which I assume you mean and it made no difference
Are you using the apple wireless keyboard?
ok , it is not an apple keyboard however I found another button which I think is the discovery button and now the keyboard is recognised but not paired
Ok great. Now it should be listed. If you tap on the name it will pair
ok, you are brilliant , all is now working , thanks a mille, will leave good feedback
You are very welcome. Have a fantastic rest of your day :)
