    Sticking Keys

    Advertisement



    I've been having a problem with mainly my 'BN' key; I'll press it, but it won't type. So I'll press it slightly harder, and the same thing. It doesn't happen all the time, but when it does, it's so annoying! My keyboard is really weird. Does this or has this happened to anyone else?

    Have not heard of this happening, but have heard of defective keyboards.

    Is your BB still within warranty? Might want to think of exchanging it.

    I have problems from time to time with my keypad and trackball. It probably because I always throw my BB in my purse and lint and other stuff get in it. I just clean it as much as possible and it seems to work. I'll look around for a link on how to clean your BB.

    Yes it's possible to clean it, but remember, if you take it apart to clean it and it is within the warranty period it will void the warranty, just an fyi

    No problem. If that doesn't work just let us know and we can try and think of another solution

    okay, so i haven't noticed the problem i had since i cleaned my pearl with an alcohol swab. buttttt, i DID noticed that when i press a number like BN [it's always the BN!], a double B or N will show up. i'm thinking maybe i have a buggy pearl because it's only like a little over a month old, since i got a new one the end of december.

    doesn't anyone have this problem? i'm not gonna go crazy about it because it doesn't happen ALL THE TIME; it just surprised me the few times it has happened.
