    My blackberry keypad is doing something that fits the description 'freaking out.' When I hit the options key, i get 'Q' instead of options. When I hit the trackball, I either get nothing or I get 'Z'. The 'send' and 'back' keys are also not working. It may have been exposed to a little bit of water (I answered it with wet hair), but the white sticker under the battery is still white. Please help!

    my bb pearl 8100 is doing the same thing i tried wiping i it clean still does it its not theres a virus in it

  • cottage_life Mar 22, 2009

    I have the same kind of problem. sometimes no buttons work, other times when i scroll the ball it opens my address book and if i keep scrolling the ball it keeps putting q and e letters up(qeqeqeqeqeqeqeeqeqe....) or if im I can get into my messages and i scroll up it opens an email and if i roll the ball more it puts qeqeqe everytime i roll the ball. I have reinstalled the software as per directions from Rogers tech supports with no luck. the phone didn't get dropped or banged, i did have it in my jeans pocket while running around with my boys and i was swetty when i was done. At first I thought maybe some moisture got in it but this started 2 days ago and i did run a hairdryer on it for about 20 min yesterday with no luck. Any help?

    Mine is doing something like that also. Most of the time when I press the trackball, nothing happens. When I do get it work. It sectlect many times. It does not do it with all apps. The addressbook is where I notice it the most. Also all the keys seam flakey. Sometimes they work sometimes they don't, it just started doing this. Any help would be great.

Try removing and cleaning your trackball. Otherwise buy a new trackball. They are not expensive and your BB will feel like new.

What is the 123 symbol and why d

Usually the 123 means that you are in numeric mode on the keypad depending on what program you are on when using the phone. There should be a button on the phone to change the keypad mode from numbers to letters.

The thing has to boot up, just like a computer; give it up to 5 minutes to drop the hourglass and come back up. Freaked me out the first time...
