Question about RIM BlackBerry Bold 9000 Smartphone

1 Answer

Answer, hang up, trackpad and a yield two letter combinations

So I have an issue with my Bold that started randomly appearing.
Whenever I hit the "A" key, it types "uo"
whenever I hit the trackball to select something, it doesn't select it but instead types "hl"
The Green Talk Button, when pressed, types "jk"
The Red End Call Button, when pressed, types "nm"

I am stuck and I don't think this is under warranty

Sounds like your keyboard may have gotten wet. Somebody needs to open your Blackberry and clean it from any corrosion and residue of the liquid. If you want somebody else to do it for you go to Blackberry Repair. If you want to do it yourself, here is an Blackberry 8520 Repair Guide that shows how to repair a Blackberry.

The trackpad does not work anymore. How can I fix it?


You would need to take the phone apart and replace the trackpad. You can find a trackpad on ebay for about $12-15. If you are interested you can contact us and send it in for us to fix it. If you buy the trackpad yourself we would just charge you for labor, otherwise we would charge you for the trackpad + labor.

Why does the Cannot play this disc. statement appear every


If it is just a few random discs the problem is with the individual disc. Either a corrupted (dirty) disc, an unrecognizable format such as a BluRay, DVD-RW, or PAL Disc (out of region).

Keyboard locks randomly after login


Sound like you might have a virus - try running antivirus program - such as Avast or Antivir - which is free.
If that doesn't work, then try doing a System Restore - if that doesn't work, then do a System Recovery complete re-install - but back up your pictures and documents first as you will lose everything and you'll be starting over again fresh.

Blackberry types wrong two letters on answer, trackpad, a etc.


Try Software. Most likely software problem, water damage would mess it up worse. Try googleing it, and useing blackberry support forums. On my old Windows Mobile phone, the ROM has many of those glitches. Your best bet would be a backup > Soft Reset > Hard Reset > Then check it. If problem persists, Do what i said above about the support forums, they will help you with software to reset keyboard

Hp Pavillion dv2000 touchpad locks to horizontal axis randomly


If it's happening on an intermittent basis, then it may be time to bring the unit into an authorized service center. In my experience, it sounds like the trackpad cabling may be starting to wear out (might be the trackpad itself, but less common with the symptoms you're describing). If you're familiar with laptop disassembly, you could try re-seating the trackpad cables yourself, however, if you are still currently covered under any warranties (either through HP or through your place of purchase) then I recommend bringing it to their attention so that the unit can be serviced without you spending any money. If you're not under warranty though, trackpad replacements aren't going to put a huge dent in your wallet, I've seen replacements usualyl go around the $100-150 USD mark, for parts and labour. Prices of course will vary depending on suppliers availability of parts and shop rates. Hope this narrows things down a bit for you and gives you a good leg up on getting your lappy back up and running again! Although, if worse comes to worse, and you don't mind having one, you could always get away with using a USB mouse instead if the trackpad wears away entirey and you don't want to front the money for the full fix. My favorite mouse to use on these kinds of notebooks, is the Logitech VX Nano. Very comfortable, portable and easy to use.

What function can make a text/string BOLD?


Hi,
Try selecting a cell and right click, Format cells, Font - Bold the text the way you want it to appear in that cell and then let it be the value you want to appear when you select that cell as a solution to a "What If" statement.
I build training spread sheets that let people generate pre-programmed answers to various data entries. Answers appear like magic.
Glad to be of assistance - please rate the posting - I can learn from you.
