Sometimes enjoy my onscreen keyboard is in the letter form, I will get a 2 when I hit the w key or a number 3 when I hit the r key. Anyone else )having this problem?

If you press the key instead of just quickly tapping it, a number or character is inputted instead of your desired letter.

Look closely at your keyboard. The number or character it will add when pressing instead of tapping the key is above the letter. A 1 on the q, a 2 on w, etc.

I am having a similar problem. Just this week my KF keyboard stopped working properly. When I tap any letter on the middle row, the letter "f" shows up. Any key on the bottom row, displays the letter"c". Any letter on the top row gets the letter "r". Even when I hold the key down, no other letter is selected. I tried re-booting. I tried the factor reset. Now, I have no ability to access the wi-fi because I can't type in a password. I'm beyond aggravated and dislike being told the only option is to buy another one.... Any other ideas?

Have you tried changing to a different keyboard in Settings?

Do you have a Fire with the Mayday function? If you do and you change your wifi password to something with only 'f's 'c's and 'r's you should be able to log onto your wifi and then use the mayday button to get some additional help from Amazon.
