    Shawn,

    I've never heard of 2 charging ports on a computer. Might be a silly question, but if either charging port is plugged in, both batteries are charging,correct?

    So, ideally you wouldn't want any broken charging ports but you could work around it?

    The usb to dc power cord that came with yours, that was for the keyboard, right?

    Both charge ports charge both batteries--one at a time.
    The usb cable thingy would plug into either the LCD or the keyboard. But usb is only 5v. These need 12v to charge properly.

    Yes you can work around having one of the charge ports broken. Just use the other one.

    this is what a good keyboard power connector looks like.

    This is a great start on how to use the device, thank you for posting the link for
    Operating Instructions, 2-in-1 Computer Model No. 3E just copy the link below into your browser and it downloads a pdf file:
    ftp://ftp.panasonic.com/computer/3e/3e_oi.pdf
    Still looking for detailed instructions on how to boot into alternate boot order, it seems like more than one method works?

    you can go into the uefi menu and *permanently* change the boot order or press "F11" during boot up and select a "one time" first boot device .
