Try another keyboard. It sounds like the drivers need to be reinstalled.

How do I use alphabet keys on remote

Generally, entering text is carried out the same way as with most cell phones.
  • 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9: Enter a character to the position pointed by the cursor.
    • First press: enter the first character from a set of characters related to this button. Each subsequent press: you may change the entered character to the next one from this set.
    • 0: enter the space.
    • 1: enter a special character (punctuation marks, etc).
      • Up, Down, Left, Right after pressing 1 (special character entering mode): select the required character.
  • ENTER: confirm selection; finish text entering.
  • SUBTITLE: enter the period (for numeric mode); functions like button 1 (character mode).
  • CLEAR (<-): delete a character to the left of cursor.
  • SELECT (cap'num): switch input mode:
    • abc: character mode, small latin letters.
    • ABC: character mode, capital latin letters.
    • 123: numeric mode, digits.
  • RETURN: cancel the text changes and finish text entering.
  • Left/Right: move the cursor one character left/right.
  • Up/Down: move the cursor to the start/end of a text line.
    • If the cursor is already in start/end position: select another user interface element which is under/over the current text entry area (only for dialogs with several elements of user interface; text changes are confirmed automatically).
  • POP UP MENU: show context menu with a list of available commands. They allow you to cut, copy and paste text using the clipboard, much like it is done on a PC.

    My Electronic crossword puzzles by RadioShack comes on but will not do anything. I just put in new batteries. I do not have my manual.

    Adjusting The Display

    To increase or decrease the display's contrast so it is easier to read,
    hold down FUNCTION, then press /\ or \/ on the cursor pad.

    Playing The Game

    1. Press ON/OFF to turn on the game.

    If you have not worked a puzzle since installing or replacing the
    batteries, CROSSWORD MASTER appears. Otherwise, the display is as it
    was when the game was turned off.

    2. To start a new puzzle at any time, press FUNCTION and 1 (I), 2 (O), or
    3 (P) at the same time. 1 is for beginner-type games, and 2 and 3
    increase in difficulty. NEW GAME LEVEL 1, 2, OR 3 Y/N appears.

    3. Press Y to start a new puzzle. A crossword grid with flashing cursor
    appears (O).

    Otherwise, press N. The display appears as it was when you pressed
    FUNCTION and 1, 2, or 3.

    4. Press (or hold down) /\, \/, <, or > on the cursor pad to move the
    cursor around the puzzle.

    5. With the flashing cursor in the desired location, press ? to see the
    clue(s) for the word(s) in that location.

    Any letters you already entered appear, along with a dash for each
    missing letter. The number of letters appears in parentheses - for
    example, (5) for a solution with 5 letters. If the solution includes
    more than one word, the number of letters for each word appears in the
    format - for example, (5, 3, 4) for a solution with three words.

    If the flashing cursor appears at the junction of two words (across
    and down), both clues appear, across first, then down.

    6. Press ? again to return to the crossword display, then use the letter
    keys to type your answer.

    If the flashing cursor was at the junction of two words and you enter
    the first letter of your answer, two small arrows appear in the
    adjacent across and down squares. Before typing the rest of your
    answer, press > or \/ (across or down) on the cursor pad to indicate
    which word you are entering.

    Press /\ on the keyboard to erase the letter just above, and < to
    erase the letter to the left of, the flashing cursor.

    To erase a word, hold down FUNCTION and press WORD DELETE (Z).

    To spell check the puzzle at any time, hold down FUNCTION and press
    SPELL (T). The [+] symbol indicates the location of each incorrect

    When you complete a crossword correctly, GAME COMPLETED appears.

    7. Press ON/OFF to turn off the game. The current puzzle is saved.

    4. Next, Press "2nd" then "Mode" to go back to the home screen. Press "MATRX" to enter the matrix screen again.

    5. Finally, press "Enter" when the cursor highlights matrix "A" then press "[x^ -1]." Your screen should read "[A]^ -1." Press "Enter" again to display the inverse matrix.

    Each line starts with a Capital alphabet-MSWORKS V8


    When entering text into Microsoft Works or Microsoft Word, just keep typing as the cursor goes across the page, and then end a sentence, or paragraph, with a period. Then, press ENTER to start a new paragraph, and Works/Word will automatically capitalize the first letter of the first word of the new sentence.

    When entering a WPA key in the network settings of my HP OfficeJet 6480, how do I toggle from letters to numbers?

    When you enter the WPA key, use the appropriate key on number keypad on the front panel. Keep pressing the appropriate key until the desired letter (upper or lower) appears.

    Once the correct letter is displayed, wait a second or two and the cursor will move to right so you can enter the next letter or key.

    A second option is to connect the printer to your using the wired connection and then open the web interface using the ip address of the printer. Login to the printer then go to the wireless security settings and enter the Pre-Shared Key (WPA key).

    It's also a good idea to put a check mark in the "Obscure PSK" option box as an added security measure.

    Learning to type a message

    Hi there,

    It must be on predictive text. Basically you type the numbers according to any of the letters that are there.

    So for example, if you wanted to type "Hello"
    It would be 4(H) 3(E) 5(L) 5(L) 6(O)

    This will show a word it thinks it can make from these numbers, generally by pressing the star key, you can flick through the options of words. If your word isn't there, you will have the option to type it in manually. For this (using the same example) you would have to type
    wait for a bit for the cursor to move over

    You can see that predicitve is much faster.

    I hope i fix ya problem :)
