Ah, now it makes more sense. Follow the instructions;- usually pressing the requested key on its own will work.

SOURCE: fn keys

It sounds like your FN key may be stuck. One simple thing that you might want to try would be to pick up a can of compressed air from a local electronics shop and use it to clean around and under all of the keyboard keys, but especially around the FN key. If there is something lodged around or underneath a particular key, this will sometimes clear it up.

SOURCE: Function key needs reset

Your numlock button is on. Somewhere on the keyboard you will see a key labeled, NumLK or something similar, press this. It is usually located somewhere in the upper right side of the keyboard. What this allows you to do is turn on the number keys that are also associated with these keys, just like a normal keyboard has the number keypad on the right side, this key turns on the functionality, gets a lot of people.

SOURCE: Sticky FN Key problem

Hello there:
Laptop keyboards are notorious for sticking after time due to small particles of dirt or oils from our skin and if you smoke believe it or not smoke from a cigarette is very bad on keyboards and computers in general.
What you can do to try to solve this problem is to get a can of canned air then turn off the laptop and dissconnect the power cord then
get a very small flat tip screw driver and CAREFULLY pry off the faulty key pad then take a q tip and some rubbing alcohol and wipe the area that it connects to .
Now take the canned air and spray down the entire keyboard and let sit for 10 minutes then replace the key pad and then replace the power cord and turn on the laptop and see if this now will work ok
Please keep me posted on how this is going
Best regards Michael

How to fix frozen Asus mouse?

Press and hold down the "Fn" key on the laptop keyboard; on most laptops, it is located between the "Ctrl" and "Alt" keys.

Press the "F9" key once, then release the "Fn" key.

This shortcut disables or enables the touchpad if you ever want to add a wireless or USB mouse

What is "FN" key

Most laptop keyboards have a key marked "FN" or "fn". This is just another shift key, like the shift, control, and alt keys. If the instructions say something like "Press fn+F1" then press and hold the fn key, press and release the F1 key, then release the fn key. Exactly the same type of procedure as when the instructions say something like "Press Control+P".

Dear Sirs. I have an ultimate 9502 it hanged on blue Imate page and hard reset with fn key and green don't work, (it was correctly worked when I pressed FN+Green+power for hard reset but now don't work...

As far as I recall back from '08, the right combination is like this: press and hold both the blue 'Fn' and the green 'Call' buttons, and, whilst keeping them pressed, briefly press the reset pin with the stylus pen. Keep holding the keys down until a white screen asking for confirmation comes up. Release them and press the left softkey (which should be labeled 'Yes').
Really hope it works for you.
Anyway, please, let me know if I can help you any further.
Regards, Carlos

The touchpad and scroll on my acer aspire 5734z does not work

It sounds like you've accidentally locked the touchpad. To unlock it hit the Fn key (lower left corner, between the CTRL and WIN buttons, it should be labeled with blue Fn label) and F7. That's Fn+F7, press and hold the Fn key, and then hit and release the F7 key, and then release the Fn key. On my Aspire this is the combination to toggle on and off the touchpad. It may be a different combination on your laptop but the rule of thumb is that you need the Fn key and one of the F1-F12 keys. The correct Function key will be labeled with a rectangle and a hand over it, illustrating a touchpad. Once you locate the key, press it and the Fn key as I explained above, and that should be it.

My function is stuck on, i cannot type on my keyboard unless i hold the function key down the whole time i am typing. is there such a fn key release function.

Normally, if you hold down the "Fn" key, you'll get whatever character or function is printed in blue on those keys. So holding down the "Fn" key, you now have a numeric keypad in the middle of your keyboard. Release "Fn" and things are back to normal.
Which is exactly the opposite of what the question is asking. The person asking needed to press the "Fn" keys to get the normal, white, characters for each key.
The "problem" is simply that there is a persistent toggle. If you press "Num Lk" (I've also seen it labeled "Pad Lk" for numeric Pad) it turns on the blue keys, and inverts the meaning of the "Fn" key - it's a way to use that embedded numeric keypad without having to hold down the "Fn" key the entire time.

numlk.jpg To fix it, just find and press the "Num Lk" or "Pad Lk" key again. (Note, sometimes these keys are themselves "Fn" keys, so you may, or may not, need to also hold down the "Fn" key to get the right function.) Often there is an indicator light associated with the setting.

Ultimate 8502 Cell Phone: how to upgrade wm6.1 to 6.5...

it needs a master reset. for master reset do the following

you should press and hold 3 keys: the Fn key, the green Send, and the Power buttons at the same time. When you release them, a white screen should come up asking for confirmation. You should confirm with the left softkey.

Nevertheless, the last time I tried it didn't work for me as such. I had to replace the Power button by the reset pin, i.e. it worked only when I pressed and held both the blue Fn and the green Send buttons, and, at the same time, I pressed the reset pin with the stylus pen. At the moment I released the buttons, the screen confirmation came up.
