Android slate 21

The other day, I bought my 21 slate with Android 4.2.2. Great device!

I downloaded Skype but have four 'problems' - that concern three Skype - I can't solve, when being I:

  1. make a call from the other person can't hear me and I no matter where I look, I can't find the setting to correct this; and
  2. Enter a chat, that the 'Send' button is there (or not); and
  3. can not seem to reduce the size of the layout (from full screen to a smaller screensize).

The last problem I encounter is with the space bar which seems to work (sometimes) as a return, rather then by adding a space.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Hi, I did some quick checking and it's my results:

1. her: I tried both video and Audio calls and both seem to work ok with the default settings.  As a quick test, you can use the Sound Recorder, system app came with slate 21 just to check the work of your microphone.  If this is the case, then it must be an app problem.  Suggest uninstall and reinstall of Skype.

2 cat sending: I checked that this seems to happen with a connected external keyboard.  It seems to be a known problem with Skype as they removed the ability to send pressing on enter key (

Until they fix I suggest to use the following workaround:

a. type your message

b. press arrow on the keyboard once (development of movements apart sending)

c. press arrow down on the keyboard once (makes highlight move them down)

d. Send button should now be visible

The other alternative would be to unplug the keyboard and use screen on one.

3 glassware: usually Android apps are full-screen only.  You can reduce your session will continue, and you can't have Skype side by side with another application.

4. space bar: I know that some applications have limited support for external keyboards.  Applications that have been sent with your slate 21 should work reliably.  If you have some applications that exhibit this problem, please let us know that and we can consider the issue.

I hope this helps.

Kind regards

    Hello and welcome to the HP support community!

    Only way that HP has provided updated their tablets is by going into the settings App/About Tablet/system updates.

    Click on the "check now" button to see if you have the latest update.  Currently, there is no update of KitKat, nor has there been any announcement of the intention to do!

  • How to activate predictive text on the physical keyboard on x 2 Android Slate10


    I just bought a 10 x 2 with 4.3 installed Android slate. I want to know how to disable the predictive entry that appears when I use the physical keyboard (or the called party base).

    When I use the Tablet without the base. The predicitve entry does not appear because I disabled it under "language settings &", but it seems that the same setting does not apply when I connected the tablet at the base.

    Help, please. The pop-up window is really annoying and kill my otherwise wonderful experience with this tablet.

    For example when I want google information on this product, I typed Slate10 but won't allow not predictive entry hit me beyond Slate1, because they do not have Slate10 on the list so I had to hit a space and come back to put in the '0'.

    Thank you.

    Kind regards


    Hi, I had just accidentally discovered the solution!
    'Shift + Enter' will toggle the prediction of input when you use the keyboard/base.

  • HP Slate 21 cannot detect some of my external hard drives

    Hi all

    I just bought an all-in-one HP Slate 21 PC (Jellybean Android) and it worked very well. However, I have a problem because it does not detect one of my external hard drive when I plug it into the USB plug. My HD model is a Seagate 1 TB Backup more Portable Drive USB 3.0. So I want to ask if the 21 slate is selective in models HD that we could use?

    Second question, I notice that when I sometimes play some movies, that he would play, but with no sound. Is there some video formats that are not supported? We can install the drivers to fix this? Thank you and hoping for some help and clarification with the people here

    Your android slate will not recognize a hard drive that is formatted as NTFS. It will recognize the FAT32 and exFAT formats.

    An external hard drive must be powered externally. Do not expect the micro-USB port to power an external hard drive or an SSD.

    The card adapter SD has a protection against writing about that switch?  (The small white ball?)  It is not supposed to not work in these devices...

    It is a failure because you can't restore an old construction on one that is newer (although she was not able to complete!)

    You can not put JellyBean on a device that has tasted KitKat.

    I'll try HP speeding download KitKat images for the 10 HD bug slate, but you may have to bug them too.

    This means that any recovery is impossible until HP produce a file has a more recent than the update corrupted time stamp.

    It should be possible to produce a solution that restores the files internal datestamp on the Tablet and this will allow an update run.
