could it have gotten wet from condensation? like ac to outdoors and raining repeatedly?
if so, some of the keys will work others not and or intermittently.
try putting it in direct sun for a few hrs. take the battery out so any moisture can escape.
on no account open the case and try to look for the problem.
fair warning!

Is the external keyboard Bluetooth, wireless or cable? If it's either of the first two, check the battery, even if it's rechargeable.
