    There are hardly any Google results with that model number.

    This is one of the only results:

    https://forum.toshiba.eu/showthread...-C-15M-Win10-How-many-batteries-are-available

    Apparently you're not the only person to have issues like this. But no one responded to this person. I'm sorry that I can't be of any more help. I tried finding a tear down video of the keyboard base but I couldn't find one.

    Jeff, this happens on my Z20t frequently. Did you ever find a "fix" for this? PS, just ordered a replacement keyboard for my keyboard dock (looking forward to the feel of a new pointing stick!) and a new battery (found a brand new one for $39!)

    hey folks, I've just ordered a z20t 8/256 off ebay for only 190E :) (because its screen has stripes but I hope it ll be OK). Looks like this $44 PA5214U replacement battery https://www.aliexpress.com/item/New...Z20T-C-11K-Z20T-B-108-Z20T-C/32959408577.html should be OK in our tablet, right ?? but do you know where to find a replacement battery for our keyboard dock ? or maybe a whole keyboard dock ??
    thanks !!

    Great find/price on the battery. I have great news for you: the battery in the keyboard is the same part as the one in the screen! For $88 you will have 12-16 hrs battery life restored. Enjoy! (I wrestled with this for literally weeks, btw; there is no documentation verifying this that I found, so I gambled and won!

    Out of curiosity, if you guys use the pen in the windows 10 ink workspace does it have tilt? I know it’s EMR, but I think it’s older so tilt doesn’t work? With that matte screen and EMR, having a pen with tilt would be lovely for sketching.

    can't speak to the Z20T but the Z10T definitely didn't have tilt. (i'm sure the others will chime in)

    But man was it nice to write on with the built in matte screen protector!

    I figure none of them had tilt, but I can’t underatand why new EMR has it and old ones didn’t. What’s changed? Is it something in board or the pen? If it’s in the pen, why can’t we have tilt on older EMR tech? Is it software? Etc.

    And yes there’s something about the built in matte screen protectors that’s clearly better to write on, than one we install. Something different about the Sp itself. ?

    great find thanks ! :) ... it doesn't ship to France though :( ... my z20t is arriving soon, if I like it I'll look into how to ship the keyboard dock to France (maybe shipito reexpedition service or sthg ...) so that I can keep a spare at the office and commute more lightly ;) ...
