Blackberry keyboard problem

All of a sudden, my blackberry keyboard has ceased working. None of the buttons other than the rollyball are working. And the rolly track ball will only allow me to scroll, not select (e.g., select anything). I have tried taking out the sim card, the battery etc. Please help! Thank you

Hello everyone, this problem is cause by humidity, it is solve leaving your blackberrry rest for a while without battery in a dry place. Blackberry has not mention it but it happens a lot, and it only needs a little quantity of your own sweat to put you in troubles.

I found a solution to the keyboard malfunction problem which has not been discussed on any forum I have looked at. I apologize if this has since been added to this thread as I have not read it in a while. Unfortunately I am pressed for time, and want to make sure others benefit from my discovery. Sorry for the bad Netiquette.

As with many other people I was extremely frustrated by the fact that so many support forums had people who had tried all the solutions, but like me had persisting keyboard issues. So I took a day and tried EVERYTHING I could think of. These are two solutions that I have found to two different symptom sets. I have only tested Bell Blackberry Curve 8330s.

I have now tested these solutions many times on several different Curves. Note none of these phones responded to the other solutions: (Remove battery for 30 seconds, blow dust out of keyboard, preform soft reset, delete archived msgs, update OS, etc..)

[COLOR="Red"][B]Symptom set #1[/B] - “Keyboard and side buttons not responding… only Track Ball scrolling (but not push selection) responding”[/COLOR]


[COLOR="Green"]
[B]Solution:[/B]

[I]This seems to be somehow caused by a function of the Scroll Ball locking out or blocking the input signals from the other buttons.[/I]

1. Turn off your phone by removing the battery

2. While battery is out of phone remove Track Ball
a. First remove the silver disk around the Track ball. This pops out easily with your fingernails
b. The ball will now simply fall out if you turn over the phone. (tap it if need be)
c. **take note of the orientation of each of these pieces so that you can put them back in the correct way. If you lose track of the way they came out, they will only go in the correct way…. Just don’t force anything.

3. With the Track Ball out of the phone, put the battery back in and power up the phone.

4. Check to see if the keyboard is responding. If it is,

5. Put the track ball back in the phone with it still powered on.

6. Test keys and trackball, it should be working now. [/COLOR]


Note: that it is unlikely that this is simply a result of the battery being removed for more then thirty seconds. I have only tested this on Curves that did not respond to repeated attempts at “the 30sec battery pull”. Each time this worked on the first try.











[COLOR="Red"][B]Symptom set #2[/B] – “Blackberry responds to Keyboard keys producing the wrong letters and pressing Track Ball produces random characters”[/COLOR]


[COLOR="DarkGreen"]
[B][B]Solution[/B][/B]

[I]This seems to be caused by the Blackberry reading the battery as partially charged when it is almost dead. I was able to prove this by testing the battery using another device. Although my phone believed the battery to have some charge the battery was actually almost completely dead.[/I]

The solution is simply to charge the phone. All but one of the times I have used this solution the BlackBerry actually started reading the battery as dead immediately after being plugged in.[/COLOR]





Hope this helps... sorry for the long post.

The problem is that some of the buttons on the keyboard suddenly stopped at different times and I do not know if the problem of the laptop or from the keyboard. Please and thank you very much.


Buy a USB keyboard and try the laptop with that. If it works ok then your laptops keyboard is the problem. make sure none of the keys are stuck down first.

My blackberry torch just suddenly stop working the screen after 7days from my purchase date the screen turned to black while i can see the keyboard has lights.


It may be locked up. Take the battery out for about a minute and then put it back in. If it boots up and works you are fixed. If that doesn't work there are other resets:
Soft Reset
Press ALT + RIGHT SHIFT(CAP) + DELETE.
Double-Soft Reset
Press ALT + RIGHT SHIFT(CAP) + DELETE . The screen will go blank for a few seconds. When the screen comes back on, immediately press ALT + RIGHT SHIFT(CAP) + DELETE again.

If none of that works a data wipe and reset is indicated:

1. From the home screen, press the Menu button.
2. Select Options.
3. Select Security Options.
4. Select Security Wipe.
5. Check the items you wish to wipe.
6. Type blackberry in the box.
7. Select Wipe.

Follow the instructions.

If that doesn't work its fried and I hope its still under warranty

Blackberry Keyboard Unresponsive


Ok, it seems that either you dropped by accident or somebody else did and did not tell you. That is one of the most common causes to phone failure. You may try to take it apart yourself and secure the data cables or contact a technician who might do it for you. Again, if you are going to try it, look for manuals online on how to take it apart, try youtube.com, they have walk-through videos. Good luck.

Does the phone still have a vailed warranty? If so inform the developers and they will send you another. I the warranty has expired unscrew the back and gain access into the keypad, check the circut board for and miss soldurings and if you can't find any put it back together and take it to a repair shop

Can receive calls and texts but none of my buttons are working, I mean none. I can't answer calls or even turn on/off the phone. Could this be my battery is no good?


This usually means your keyboard is defective.

First try installing the OS on the phone either reinstall the old os or try and upgraded version.

A.) Remove the battery, Plug in( if keyboard still does not work try the following:
1.) Applications
2.) Options
3.) General settings

Note: your phone may have a different os than I pulled the above information from just try to get to general settings and then hit blackberry button for wipe handheld option. Don't forget to backup your contacts etc before doing this.

Depress the blackberry button (button with all the dots on it) then select wipe hand held. Be careful as this will erase possibly everything on the handheld

If none of the above work to get your keypad working it will need physical repair.
