Question about Dell Inspiron 1200 Notebook

Open Question

Single keystroke causes two different characters to display.

When I type the g key, g5 is displayed onscreen. When I type h, I get h6. Also, the delete key deletes not the next character but the character after the next one on the page. The computer is a dell inspiron 1200 laptop.

Thanks for any help/suggetions.

Karen

How to get the sterling pound symbol in K120 logitech keyboard


Entering the following keystroke combination will result in the Pound Sterling sign being displayed:
While holding down the ALT key, enter 0163 (ALT+0163).

This is known ASCII Code. (Pronounced Ask-key.)
A complete list of all 256 character codes is available at http://www.ascii-code.com/ .
All manner of Latin-based characters are available. Check it out.
To use any ASCII Code, choose the "HTML Number" and substitute "ALT+0" for "&#".
In this case, the HTML Number is &#163, therefore when entering text, type ALT+0163 (NOTE: "ALT+" means "While holding down the ALT key, press and release each of the four digits in sequence, then release the ALT key.)

Hope this helps.

Keyboard typing multiple letters/ numbers when pressing certain keys.


Keyboards on Windows computers can repeat letters when key press sensitivity is too high. This problem can be rectified by adjusting your keyboard's repeat frequency. Once this is lowered, key presses will occur slower and you will not have the letters repeated instantly.

Click"Start," then "Control Panel." Click "Hardware and Sound," followed by "Keyboard." Move the "Repeat delay" slider further to the left below the "Character repeat" option. The further left the slider moves, the longer the delay will be before a character repeats.

Keyboard displaying double character


Could be several things. If dirty or under humid conditions, you might be able to just remove the keyboard and clean off the touch pad buttons. If not, I did a simple google search for the keyboard and found dozens for sale online for around 25 to 30 dollars.

Denon AVR-3802 Front Display problem


This can be either the display itself or the display driver IC havng problems. Something as simple as poor solder connections may cause this as well. Without seeing hte unit, it is difficult to say what the real problem is. If you can solder, try resoldering all of the voltage regulator ICs in the unit. These look like transistors and will be marked 7805 or 7812. If the voltages drift too low because of bad connections, the ICs can get "confused" and not work properly.

Keep us posted.

Using T9 mode
T9 is a predictive text input mode that allows you to
key in any character using single keystrokes.
Entering a word in T9 mode
1. Press [2] to [9] to start entering a word. Press
each key once for each letter.
For example, press [4], [3], [5], [5], and [6] to
enter HELLO in T9 mode.
T9 predicts the word that you are typing, and it
may change with each key that you press.
2. Enter the whole word before editing or deleting
characters.
3. When the word displays correctly, go to step 4.
Otherwise, press [0] to display alternative word
choices for the keys that you have pressed.
For example, OF and ME use [6] and [3].
4. Press [ ] to insert a space and enter the next
word.
Other T9 mode operations
• Press [1] to enter periods or apostrophes
automatically.
• Press [ ] to change case. Lower case (No
indicator), Initial capital ( ), and Capital lock ( )
are available.
• Press [ ] to insert a space.
• Press the Navigation keys to move the cursor.
• Press [C] to delete characters one by one. Press
and hold [C] to clear the display.
Adding a new word to the T9 dictionary
This feature may not be available for some languages.
1. Enter the word that you want to add.
2. Press [0] to display alternative words for your key
presses. When there are no more alternative
words, Spell displays on the bottom line.
3. Press <Spell>.
4. Enter the word you want using ABC mode and
press <OK>.
