Acer Switch SW312-31 - problem with keyboard

My tablet is Acer Switch SW312-31.

When I connect its own keyboard (attached to the tablet with a magnetic bar), nothing happens, i.e. the keyboard does not respond to keystrokes.

The external usb-mouse works, as does the virtual keyboard on the device.

When you connect the mouse to the tablet with the usb cable, you hear a "bling bling" and the mouse appears in the device manager.

When the keyboard is connected to the tablet, nothing is heard. When you run "Find new device" you see "TCH-DMS:10".  What is it? 

In any case, the keyboard does not work. Cleaned the pins, no help...

    In device manager does it show as a keyboard? Or does anything show with the yellow or red mark :)

    Most of the time this is due to dirty contacts and to the channel the keyboard snaps into having crud that stops it from fully seating...
