Specs: iPad 1
iPad 1. My wife didn't like the keyboard so it is months since we bought it, but now I find it doesn't work, and I see others have had similar problems. Is there are software update to solve this?

That's a hardware issue, no software will fix that. You might try replacing the batteries.

Thanks, but frankly that seems a very improbable cause, and in any case, the battery is not replaceable. I gather from the internet that this is not an unknown problem, but I didn't find any suggested solutions. I agree that it sounds like a faulty keyboard .... except surely a reputable firm like Zagg wouldn't have sold significant numbers with the same fault, and it isn't as if this was a newly introduced item when I bought it.

I have just had the same problem with my UIOP keys. This is related to the embedded numeric keys on my Dell E6400, I believe.
I had an issue once before where the laptop started to boot up with the num lock ON instead of off, so that the keys 7 8 9 0 U I O P J K L : M > ? didn't work as expected. This is a problem if, like me, you use a BIOS password since you cannot tell. In the end I guessed and was able to enter my BIOS password using the function key when appropriate.
After that I could change that set-up by booting to F2.
A few days later it changed back without my knowingly doing anything to prompt it to.
And now I have a similar problem but the above solution doesn't work. My UIOP keys do not work at all so I cannot enter my password. Still searching the solution. (They were fine until I switched off my laptop).
