    If restart and reset doesn't work, I would suggest returning the Touch Cover....though you did not say you had a Touch Cover. 444444 666666 <<<<<< typed from an MS 4000 KB.

    666 does not work? The devil is in the details??? (humor)

    Check for debris or grime on those six electrical contacts along the magnetic flap.

    Mine did that after spilling some soda on it. Took a while to get back to normal.
