Having trouble pairing the Belkin F5L171 and F5L176 with your iPad Air®

If you are having trouble pairing your tablet with the Belkin QODE™ Ultimate Pro Keyboard Case for iPad Air (App enabled), F5L171 or the Belkin QODE™ Ultimate Pro Keyboard Case for iPad Air 2 (App enabled), F5L176, you may have to clear the stored settings on your device and on the Keyboard before pairing them back together.

Once the keyboard memory is clear, it will default to pairing mode for Memory Slot 1.

 
NOTE:  If a device is paired to Memory Slot 1 of the Keyboard but Memory Slot 2 is empty, switching to Memory Slot 2 will cause the device stored in Memory Slot 1 to lose connection with the Keyboard. 

To regain connection on your Keyboard manually, connect to it on your iPad by selecting the Keyboard from the Bluetooth® Devices list.
