Question about HTC Touch Pro Smartphone

Keyboard doesn't work

When the problem began, there would be a delay and sometimes repeating characters. Now, the keyboard doesn't respond at all--despite lighting up when I slide it open.

    Keyboard


    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.

    If fails

    Gather your supplies. There are commercial kits available, but a can of compressed air, a lint-free cloth or wipes, mild dishwashing liquid, and a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush are all you really need for a basic cleaning. After turning off your computer and unplugging your keyboard, gently shake the keyboard upside down over some newspaper to dislodge loose crumbs and particles. Use the can of compressed air to blow a stream of air between the keys. Repeat Step 2. Dampen a lint-free cloth with a diluted solution of dishwashing liquid and water to wipe down the keys. Use the vacuum cleaner brush attachment to suck away any remaining dirt or debris. If you have a membrane-type keyboard (it doesn\'t have a spring under each key) and the keys are truly grungy, you can remove the keys with a small screwdriver and use cotton swabs and 90% isopropyl alcohol to get it sparkling clean
    If you are still feeling industrious, next you can tackle cleaning your mouse Of course, if cleaning your keyboard seems a truly undesirable task, you can always buy one for around $20.

    Hope this helps.

    Keyboard is too sensitive - getting multiple characters


    I too have encountered this problem. It was the q key on a dell latitude d530. After reading a post on an osxforum describing a software issue i attempted to fix the problem by adjusting the sensitivity of the keyboard. This did nothing. Next i attempted to determine if there was a physical issue. I popped the key off and discovered nothing. I also popped out the white plastic 'scissors' that the key fixes too and still discovered nothing. I looked under the rubber... nothing. compared it to another key... nothing. All in all I could find nothing abnormal about this key other than the fact that it was super sensitive. so I began to experiment. I put a piece of paper under the rubber. This made the sensitivity just about perfect so I left the little bit of paper in place, reassembled, and have had no further problems. This is ghetto i know but it worked for me...
