    Keypad stopped working!

    Advertisement



    Slight problem here... 10 mins after using my phone, with no issues, I go to check a message and certain keys started acting strangely. After a few battery pulls the whole keyboard stops working except 30 seconds after I push a bunch a keys the screen will come on and it will start typing "Qeqeqeqeqeqeqeqeqe" then I can press back and it goes to the menu but with no keypad functionality. Oh wait, now keys are working except with odd results. Can't use the pearl button in the main menu but I can in messages. Help please? It doesn't seem like any keys are stuck because I can type normaly when typing in a number; however, while texting certain keys send the message or go back.

    As of this morning, all the keys work properly except the ball. When I push down it's as if I'm pushing the !,Q,W key. My phone is possessed.

    Pull the battery and let it sit keypad side down for a few hours. It's possible theres a little bit of moisture in the keypad/board. This happened to a budddy of mine with a 8700.
