SOURCE: the letters i type do not come out- they're other symbols

If you turn off and on and it types the proper letters at first then types gibberish look at the printwheel for bent spokes or other damage, then check to be sure tou have the proper correction tape (DRY).

Hope this helps

SOURCE: keyboard letters are typing different letters

Hi Melaine,

It sounds like you're in a word-processing or text-editing application, and have selected a Symbol font. Change to another font (like Arial) and it should clear-up.

SOURCE: My IBM Selectric II types the wrong letters.

Sounds like the cable might have slipped off the pulley, with the cover off, check all cables to the carriage assy. You need a tool like a spring hook to gently slide the cable back on to the pulley.

SOURCE: when you are typing it

Hi

Try system restore. Go to START>ACCESSORIES>SYSTEM TOOLS>SYSTEM RESTORE>CHOOSE PREVIOUS RESTORE DATES. Use other restore dates if needed.

Or try this

If your laptop keyboard types wrong characters, it is rather a software issue than an hardware one. This can happen if you accidentally press certain keys on your keyboard, which enable a certain kind of function.
Try the following steps in case your laptop keyboard displays wrong characters:
1.Go to the control panel option
Click ? 'Regional and Language Services' ? 'Languages' ? 'Details' ? 'Key Settings'
2.Select the option 'Switch Between Input Languages' and click on 'Change Key Sequence'
3.Ensure that all the check boxes are unchecked in this window and do the same for 'Switch to...(Keyboard Type)'
4.Click ?
'Ok' ? 'Ok' ? 'Apply' ? 'Ok'.
This should solve your problem

Tracfone's instructions for how to text do not work! what's up?


Texting on this model a bit tricky. First pull up name & number of person you want to text to, if it is in your phone. Then hit short dash line under the word 'options'. Make sure #1, 'create message' is highlighted. Hit ok button. Now type message. If you want a 'v', for example, you have to hit the #8 button 3x quickly. If you make a mistake, hit 'clr' button on top right to clear it & retype. So, for example, you want to send the word 'please'. You would have to hit the #7 button once, wit a second for the curser on screen to move to next space, then hit the # 5 button 3x quickly to get to the 'l', wait for curser, then hit #3 button 2x quickly to get to the 'e', etc. You get the drift. This model is not very conducive to sending longer texts. It's too time consuming & annoying. But short ones are ok if you have the patience. IF you need a space in between words, hit the '0' button once (that's zero, not 'o'). This is where text code comes in handy for shortening words, such as "LOL" for laughing out loud, etc.

Once you are through typing note & want to send it, just hit ok button to send. It may take a bit of time for message to go through. If you type a lot, it may take up more than 1 page, if this happens, the phone will ask you 'message is 3 pages, do you want to send now', or something like that. The longer the message is, the longer it will take to send.

One thing to keep in mind, before you start typing, make sure you hit the bottom lower key that has the asterisk & up arrow on it 3x quickly, or else when you type, it will be all garbley goop. If you want a capital letter, you also have to hit that same key once before you hit letter key. It only works for one letter at a time, so if you need to do more than one, say you want to type "DVD", you have to hit asterisk key once, then #3 button for 'D', then asterisk key again, then #8 button 3x for "V', etc. If you need a symbol or punctuation, use the bottom right hand key that has the # sign on it. Hit it once & some symbols come up, you will have to move over to the one you want by using outlined area around the 'ok' button. Once you get to symbol you want, hit 'ok' button it will add that symbol or punctuation to your text & return you to your text area.

If you do not see the symbol or punctuation you want, hit small dash under the word 'next' & it will take you to the next page. I think there are 7 pages of these different symbols & punctuation.

Hope all that helps. Email me at: ldgtreke4@aol.com, if you have any other questions. Put short note in subject box so I know what this is about. Good luck!

When typing numbers a strange symbol appears in it's place, not a code symbol or a cap symbol.


Hmm, I have a sd 670, and I have a button called KD II, and it makes symbols appear. If you have that key, hit code then hit it. That should bring you back you back to normal.

While typing some of my letters randomly appear in other parts of my text


I think there is a problem with your mousepad. It has become too sensitive even if you are not touching it. You will need it checked by a tech.

My iPhone 3GS screen is going crazy! Randomly if I click a letter on the keyboard let's says 'a' then it starts clicking other random letters like 'p' Also, when I'm running an app an let sat I scroll down...


My 3gs has been doing the same thing for the past few days until it got to the point where it opened up settings and started hitting all the different sounds! lol
First i was going to restore but the restore ended up failing due to some kind of unknown error. I then thought what about doing a "hard reboot" by holding the lock button and home button together until it shuts off, then release the lock button while still holding the home button for 10 seconds. That worked. I guess its like disconnecting the battery for a bit. Hope it works for all !!!
