    Intermittent Standby Button Problem

    Advertisement



    My standby button, sometimes won't depress, is this a hardware or a software problem?
    Is there another way to "go into standby", I don't want to send my Pearl in for repair? TIA

    The OEM holsters have a small magnet in them that the phone senses. This automatically puts the phone into standby when it passes near the magnet.

    You could either get a holster, or a small, weak magnet from your kitchen, and put it into standby that way.

    I experienced this same problem a few weeks ago. I took off the battery cover and pressed it. I kind of pushed around the button a little bit. And after a while my standby/mute button works perfect.

    I would just play around with it...keep pressing it. If not get a holster.
