CrowPi2 - Random appearance of the letters A and I

Post by Colin »

Anyone else having letters randomly pop up when typing? Very annoying! (Not sure whether this is a hardware or software issue)

I'm waiting for Elecrow tech support to get back to me.

Sounds like it may be a fault with your keyboard.

Have you tried another keyboard ?

If you have a desktop PC, just plug the keyboard in from that and see what happens. If the random letters still occur, the problem must lie elsewhere.

Sound like a crap keyboard more than anything else!
I had a similar problem with a cheap Bluetooth keyboard mouse combo (it ended up in the E-waste bin)

Thanks - I tried that and the USB keyboard worked. Elecrow Tech Support is sending me a new keyboard. They warned it won't be for a while as it needs to be manufactured. In the meantime I bought a cheap plug in.
