Different letters appear when typing a certain letter for example when typing letter s letter w will also appear


Hi,

I see that when typing in on the keyboard some letters appear as well like for "s' the letter "w" shows up as well.

Was there any liquid spilled on the keyboard? if none then you can try cleaning OFF any unwanted software on you computer, then perform a disk defragmentation on the machine just to have everything in proper order for the windows side.

After doing what was said above restart the computer and try the keyboard again if still the issue is the same, i suggest that you back up any personal stuff like pictures and emails if ever because reformatting the Hard drive and windows back to factory defaults will be next to see if the issue will still be the same after reinstalling windows back to defaults.

If the issue is still the same after reinstalling windows then this is going to be considered a hardware failure to the keyboard and replacing the keyboard will be the next best thing to be done.

Unless Liquid was the cause then the issue may differ if the motherboard was the one causing the letters to type in with other letters which is not common.

My letter 'o' suddenly stopped working now i cant type my password in, i've tried a cold hairdryer to blow any dust or dirt that maybe under the letter, and a soft clean make up brush but nothing seems to...


I would try a battery pull if you haven't already.
It's most likely moisture damage, I would remove the back cover of your phone and check the battery. There is a white moisture strip on the battery. If it's pink/red and not white, you have moisture damage.
If you can't think of any spills, there are a few other things that could have happened.
For example having it in your pocket while you were sweating heavily?
Or having it in a high humidity environment like a steamy bathroom?
Drop in in the snow?
The only real way to get it fixed is to replace the keyboard entirely.
Thankfully on the BlackBerry it's not too difficult and the keyboard isn't too expensive.
If it's under any sort of warranty, take it to your carrier and they should just replace it.
If not, go to eBay and purchase a BlackBerry Curve 8520 keyboard, then view the video to see how to replace the keyboard.

My Western Design 120G external hard drive is my back up source. I've had it for a long time and i keep it in its original box when not in use. I just tried to do another back up and when i plug it in,...


the red light probably suggests a problem, habe you recently had any other type of removable or network storage attached, mapped network drives or anyhting like that?

you say the computer recognises it was plugged in, i presume from the noise the computer makes? i would first be checking the device manager to see if there are no problems (right click my computer - properties - hardware tab - device manager), look for any yellow exclamation marks or question marks..

secondly i would make sure it hasnt tried to assign the same drive letter to the external as something else plugged into the machine or something silly like that, check the disk manager..

(right click my computer - manage - on the left click disk management)

look in the list at the bottom for the drive, even if it isnt accessible in my computer, if the computer recognises it as any type of disk at all, it will show it here.. if it does, look at the drive letter, and if it has the same as something else, simply change it (right click the external - change drive letter and paths) remove the current letter - follow the same process again and give a new one that is unused

if there is nothing under device manager, and no external in disk management when it is plugged in, then i dare say its probably had its day..

hope this helps

Letter appeared automaticcally


This sounds like a stuck key. Make sure there is nothing which may cause this specific letter to be stuck on your keyboard. I would actually try to press on it several times pretty hard as it may release the button.
Also, if this doesn't help, try to unplug the keyboard and plug in a different one, to see if this is a problem with this specific keyboard. If the keyboard is plugged to your computer by USB, try to uninstall and then reinstall the driver.

Keyboard locked and i'm on my last try? 8350i curve with nextel


Remember that if you type in the PIN "5815" (example) on the BB keyboard without holding down the ALT key you are really typing "dxwd" but you can't see it because it does not show the typed letters only the *****. Try entering the letter form of the numeric passcode. One more example. If your passcode was "1234" enter "wers".

Good luck!
