    O NO! It's not broken. It just came unclipped

    I took it to the Geek Squad and they were able to just snap the key back into it's origional place. As I mentioned it was just loose, not broken; No Super Glue just snapped back into place.

This happened to me recently. If you can't snap it back on then it means it has broken off clean. What I did was get some super glue and put a small amount on the bottom the key and a little on the keyboard and glued it back on. The only other option is to buy a new keyboard, you can find them pretty cheap on the web.

Don't foget to rate this solution with 4 stars.

How do you fix the keypad? I cannot type anything


Sounds like the main lead of the keyboard has come loose, either that or the key board needs to be replaced. Here is the link to the video instructions on how to replace, I would follow the instructions on the removal and check the main power cable of the key board and make sure it is not loose before you buy another key board, cost for a new key board should range from 8 to 15 dollars. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1vRglqfQjyE Hope this helps. :)

Buttons wont respond when first turn on


One of 3 things may have occur 1st loose connection between keypad to upper electronics, 2 nd Defective keypad , last but not least the upper electronics. If you are able to disassemble the upper console inspect and look if any connections that are loose , physically pull and replace connectors one at a time, then test your unit to see if key function return. Proceed to next step is replacement of keypad, if not it then it is the upper electronics.

Buttons not working


The volume key is stuck that's why the volume bar keeps on popping out. It is also the reason why the keypad is not working. You have to unstuck the volume key to check if the keypad really doesn't work.
  1. Remove the battery cover and battery.
  2. Remove the camera cover by prying the locks along its sides and lifting it up to expose the volume keys.
  3. Insert a needle between the volume key membranes and the board to unstuck it. The membranes should click when pressed.
  4. Install the camera cover in reverse order.
Inform me if the volume keys work fine but the keypad buttons don't.

Keypad in w350i not working...how 2 repair tat


Remove the external key pad and press the internal keypad on the phone board directly, may be the external key pad rubber is not contacting the one on the phone board.

Or you can loose the phone, and clean the internal part of the key pad. There might be dust on it, you could also use this medium to service your phone. If it does not work after all these, then I think you have to change the key pad completely.

I wish you the best.

The keypad 3, 6 and 9 of my sonyericcson k750i are not functioning....


If you feel confident and competent enough, try taking your phone apart and giving the internals a good clean, take the white keypad PCB out and clean both it's contacts and the contacts on the phone's mainboard, and clear out any dust. Put the phone back together and see if that's solved the problem. It could also simply be that the keypad connector has worked loose




Key Pressed : Key presses phone appears to see
:
3 : 3 then left soft key
6 : 6 then right soft key
9 : 9 then back
c : c then #
left soft key : 3 then left soft key
right soft key : 6 then right soft key

(All the other keys worked correctly)

As I didn’t know what was causing this I attempted to move all data stored on the phone to the memorystick so I could master reset and possibly reflash, although after this I returned to the homescreen to find all keys had started functioning correctly again,
