    8830 keyboard - "r" key not working so good

    Advertisement



    I've had my 8830 for about 3 months. Today the r/3 key is giving me fits. I have to either push really hard or hit it a couple times. Is there any way to clean the contacts or something? Also it has no "click" like the rest of the keys. Any help is greatly appreciated! It slows my typing down considerably!

    Personally, I don't believe there is really any fix on that type of issue. I would recommend utilizing your warranty to replace your phone. Its not like you can spray WD-40 into it and end up fixing it that way! The only thing I can think of is that if you stick it in your pocket quite often then you might have dust that may have built up and maybe spraying it with air might temporarily fix the problem. Since you already mentioned that your not getting a clicking sound any longer it may be a number of things that might be causing it but in my professional opinion its beyond self repair.

    Well my BB has proven you wrong.... lol. Today it's working fine. Don't ask me, I have no clue what happened. I'd never put my BB in my pocket, always a pouch. Anyway, I appreciate the help. I'm glad I didn't have to try the replacement (at least not yet) although I do have it insured. My guess is being outside in the cold for a while and some of the contacts contracted, I guess? lol. Either that or it's the gremlins again!

    My end call button(red) does not work. I took it apart and gave it my best uneducated look over but found no 'obvious' problem. It clicks when I push it but that's all. It's a hassle but I just use the trackball to end programs. I can live with it until the CDMA curve debuts.
