    can someone help or clarify why the type cover is not working when it is attached to the secondary magnets on the bezel?

    You may have some debris interfering with the electrical contacts. Make sure they are clean and protruding fully. Also check for debris in the SP3 receiving port. If they are indeed clean, or your Surface Pro Type Cover (for SP3) is new, and failing, then you likely have a defective Type Cover.

    Rub both the connections with your fingers or thumb - it's probably dirt from all the disconnecting, it creates an opportunity for bits of dirt to cover the connections.

    You are in the correct spot. Did you update with it connected?
