The problem sounds like that the ribbon between the top part of the phone and the bottom part of the phone has came loose or that it has got dammaged i dont advise you to take the phone apart yourself as you will dammage it further this part isnt to expensive to replace but doing it yourself could result in the phone being further dammaged.

The only thing you could try is sliding it up and down a few times but whilst doing it push the two halves together not to hard but just a bit of pressure whilst you slide it open.

I have got one in bit in front of me and the problem with mine was the same as your and i had to take phone apart and i removed the ribon between the two halve i was going to replace it but i thought i give it a try so put it back in the phone and put it back together and then it worked fine.

If you think you want to do it yourself just bewarned it is very difficult to take apart and even more difficult putting back together every screw has to be undone in certain order and the same back together so it would be best to take to shop wont cost to much but would save oyu damaging phone further and then have phone that is no good.

does nothing at all work on the key board do the buttons on the top half work let me know how you get on ok

Sync ihome wireless keyboard

Say the device you want to sync your keyboard to is an I pad.
Follow the I pad's normal Bluetooth pairing procedure. Around the same time, slide the switch on the back of the ip2101 from OFF to ON and then press the black button to the left of that switch. When the I pad recognizes the ip2101 keyboard, the I pad will display a pin number and instructions to type that pin number on the ip2101 keyboard and hit the enter key on the ip2101.

Space key doesn't work well

I would power off the computer and continously hit the space key for a few minutes. It might have a liquid spill such as a soda pop under it and causing it to stick. If that doesn't solve the problem you might need a new keyboard or go inside the laptop and remove the keyboard cable and plug it back in to reseat it. Sometimes that helps. Here's a fail safe alternative. Bring up google's website and in the search box type "" (without the quotes) and click the link to go to their site. When the site comes up look immediately to the left and you will see a gray area that says Find Software. Type in "free virtual keyboard" (without the quotes) and click the mirror to search. It will bring back a page and the Free Virtual Keyboard is listed first. Look to the right of it and click the Download Now button. Download and install it. Once it is install you can look in Start/Programs and right click on it and select Pin to Start Menu then right click again and select Desktop (Create Shortcut). It's a neat keyboard to have just in case your real keyboard goes bonkers. You simply click on the letter with your mouse pointer that you want. It has all the functionality of a physical keyboard. You can open a web page, place your mouse in the address line then bring up the virtual keyboard by clicking on it from your desktop or start menu and it will sit on top of whatever you were trying to do. You can move it to see the typing area as you click on a letter. It works the same way if you opened a word document. In your case anytime you need the space bar, just click on it.

How to use accents when writing in Spanish in a Dell Precision m4500 laptop?

On Windows XP
  1. Log On
  2. Click the Start button
  3. Click on Control Panel
  4. Click Regional and Language Options - a new window will pop up
  5. Click the Languages tab
  6. Click on the Details button
  7. Click the Add button - a new window will pop up
  8. Select United States-International (keyboard layout menu)
  9. Click OK
  10. Click Apply
  11. Read the instructions for "Using the U.S. - International Keyboard" below.
Note: You will now have a keyboard icon on the taskbar (usually on the right side). To switch between keyboard layouts click the keyboard icon on the task bar and choose which layout you want to use. Changing the keyboard layout will only affect the log on profile used. No other users will be affected.

Windows Vista
  1. Start-->Control Panel-->Clock, Language, Region-->Change Keyboards
  2. New Window: Click the Change Keyboards button
  3. New Window: Click the Add button
  4. Select United States-International keyboard
  5. Click OK
  6. From drop down menu (Default Input Language) select United States International
Using the U.S. - International Keyboard If you followed the above directions carefully, your keyboard will now react slightly differently than it did before. First of all, notice that if you strike the single apostrophe (') key, nothing happens. To type the single apostrophe now, you must strike the single apostrophe key and then strike the space bar. When you strike the spacebar, the apostrophe will appear.
The next thing to note is that the quotes (") key behaves the same way as the apostrophe key. You must first strike the quotes key and then strike the space bar in order to create the (") symbol. These two minor inconveniences are more than made up for by the ease with which you can now type the special characters.
To type the special characters, two keystrokes are required. To type the ?, you need only strike the apostrophe key and then the letter a. The other characters are just as easy:
  • ? = ' + a
  • ? = ' + e
  • ? = ' + i
  • ? = ' + o
  • ? = ' + u
  • ? = ~ + n
  • ? = " + u
To type the special punctuation characters, you need to hold down on the Alt key while you strike the appropriate punctuation mark. On some keyboards, only one of the two Alt keys will work for this.
  • ¡ = Alt (hold down) + !
  • ¿ = Alt (hold down) + ?
Using Cryptic Codes If, for some reason, you don't want to change your keyboard, you can always type in the troublesome cryptic codes. Using this arcane system, the following codes apply:
  • ? = Alt + 0225
  • ? = Alt + 0233
  • ? = Alt + 0237
  • ? = Alt + 0243
  • ? = Alt + 0250
  • ? = Alt + 0241
  • ? = Alt + 0252
  • ¡ = Alt + 0161
  • ¿ Alt + 0191
When using this utterly out-dated system, there are two important things to remember. First, when you type in the numbers, some keyboards require that you use the "numeric keypad" located to the side, rather than the numbers along the top. Second, on some keyboards, only one of the two Alt keys will work for this.

My wireless logitech keyboard will not type. I have uninstalled & installed, booted computer up several times & still it will not work. What next?

Try that keyboard on another laptop or desktop computer. If it reacts the same way then you know for sure the keyboard is bad. If it works on another computer then that means its an issue with the original computer.

Also check to make sure you have fresh batteries inside of the keyboard as well.

Keys not working on lato ( you now now what

Check your keyboard for region code settings. Or check the key for the difference on other keys how it reacts on depressing and releasing. Maybe some foreign material that block the key to hit the contact underneath.

Or if this is a rubber type contact, might it is been teared already. Then replacement is an option.

Keyboard does not type brand new batteries

look for a little hole on the keyboard, the button is the size of a pin head, it is for resetting the keyboard after you put in a new battery. when you find the reset switch the keyboard light will work and the startup bar will show it has found a new device.
