Bk3001 Bluetooth Keyboard For Mac

This post explains how to connect a Bluetooth keyboard to your Linux/Mac/Windows computer without having to enter a pairing code. This is useful if you have a broken key on your keyboard, if you want to automate the pairing from a script, or you are building a custom keyboard that doesn’t have all the number keys connected (that’s me!).

Linux

Based on the Ubuntu Community Documentation for Bluetooth Setup, these commands were tested on Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.4, but should work on other version of Linux provided you can figure out how to install the necessary Bluetooth utilities.

I can't seem to connect my BA3001BA Bluetooth keyboard to my mac. It pairs, and then asks for a passcode. I enter the passcode and I get the spinning beachball of death and shortly thereafter, it says the pairing wasn't successful. I managed to connect the device to an Ubuntu Laptop by bypassing the passcode, but it's not possible on a mac.

First, we need to scan the available devices. Make sure your keyboard is in discoverable mode (push the button) before running the scan command.

Next, we need to manually connect to the keyboard device ID:

After this command finishes, your keyboard should be working with Linux. Try typing characters into vim or gedit, to make sure it’s working properly. Congratulations!

Windows 7

This solution was found at one of the Microsoft support forums. I know, I had no idea that Microsoft had support forums, either. Even more surprisingly, I was able to obtain useful information from a Microsoft webpage. To start, open up the Control Panel, and go to “Hardware and Sound”. Select “Add a Bluetooth device”:

When Windows is searching for your Bluetooth devices, put your keyboard into pairing mode (press the button). When it shows up in the list, don’t double click it! Instead, right-click on the keyboard device and select “Properties”: How to extract a file on mega app for mac.

In the window that opens, “Keyboard Properties”, wait a couple seconds for the services panel to load. Once it has loaded, check the box for “Drivers for keyboard, mice, etc. (HID)”. Click on “OK” to close the window.

Windows will load the drivers for your keyboard. After everything settles down, your keyboard should be working with Windows. Try typing characters into Notepad, to make sure it’s working properly. Congratulations!

Despite a couple hours of searching the web and trying all possible menu options, I was unable to figure out how to pair a bluetooth keyboard without having to type in a randomly-generated numeric passcode. If you know how to do get around this, please leave a comment below. Thanks!

I was surfing on Gearbest when I discovered that they sell really cheap keyboards and mouse. Some of the prices are frankly unbelievable. There are wireless mouse selling for less than US $10! I know things from China are cheap but I didn't know that they are that cheap.

Anyway, I bought a wireless Mac keyboard by the name of BK 3001. It looks like those wired Apple keyboards but without the cable.

Bk3001 Manual


This keyboard was designed for use with Mac and iOS devices.


I'm not sure why they have Apple, Android and Windows on those buttons.


These are shortcuts from the Mac laptop buttons.


The body of the keyboard is plastic. It's light. The keys are not very different from Apple keyboard keys. But because the keyboard is light, typing on it feels a bit hollow. If they had used heavier plastic, the experience would be so much better.


The keyboard uses two AAA batteries.

Here's the size comparison between US $11 BK 3001 and the out of production Logitech K811 that I bought at US$78.

The Logitech keyboard is also made of plastic. But because the plastic is heavier, they keyboard feels more substantial.

I had no problem pairing BK 3001 with my Mac. Using it was alright. The overall typing experience is still decent enough. When I consider the price of US $11, it's seriously worth the money, even if the keyboard feels a bit cheap.

Downside to the keyboard is, not all keyboard shortcut works as expected. For example, in Lightroom, I want to change the filename with FN+F2 but I can't, nothing happens. It's like the Fn key is spoilt or something. Fn+Delete to backspace also does not work. When I want to shut down the Mac with Cmd+Alt+Ctrl+Del, I can't as well, nothing happens. I'm sure there are some other shortcuts that do not work.
