TYTN2 buttons not reponding - screen navigation fine


If a soft reset does not fix it,
Try a full hard reset:
Soft reset: Use the stylus to lightly press and hold the RESET button on the bottom of your device.
Hard reset: Press and hold the Left SOFT KEY and Right SOFT KEY, and at the same time, use the stylus to press the RESET button at the bottom of your device. You will be presented with a menu saying 'press R to reset, X to exit', if you press R Your device will be set back to factory default settings.
(The L/R soft keys are the "- -" keys just above the start and OK buttons)
Another Option if one of the SOFT KEY's is bad: START/SETTINGS/SYSTEM (tab)/CLEAR STORAGE.
