Re: buttons not working?

If resetting, try a full factory reset, if it still doesnt work, the keyboard is either bad or has a loose flex cable. Most likely its faulty hardware, unless you've been installing and uninstalling a lot of different software. That can sometimes mess a lot of things up.

My palm centro keyboard and other buttons randomly stopped workig

Hello hyuuga4567,

The keyguard feature might be accidentally enabled. To turn off Keyguard, do the following:
• When the screen is off, press the red power button to wake up the screen.
• Press the center (Palm) button to turn off Keyguard.

You can change how quickly Keyguard turns on, or you can disable this feature altogether. To change the Keyguard settings, do the following:
• Press the Home button
• Select System from the category drop-list at the top of the screen
• Select Prefs
• Select Keyguard.
• Select the Auto-Keyguard pick list, and then do one of the following:
-Select how quickly you want Keyguard to turn on: When power is turned off, 5 seconds after power off, or 30 seconds after power off.
-Select Disable to completely disable the Keyguard feature until you turn it on again by pressing Option +
Power/End when the screen is on.
4 Select Done.

More information about the keyguard feature canbe found in the Palm Centro User's Guide:

My blackjack's keys wont work

First off, how do you know it's the keys, rather than something else? More details are always helpful. An important question is, can you see or hear anything at all, by any means? If someone calls you, does the screen light up?
If you see incoming calls, but can't answer them because the keys don't do anything, then I'd ask if the phone might have the keyboard locked. You'll be able to tell because you'll see "Unlock" in the lower left of the screen when someone calls or you press the power button (top left edge, above the screen). If it's locked, pressing the "..." button to the left of the wheel will tell you how to unlock it (just the "*" button down by the "0" button on my Blackjack).
If you don't see anything when someone calls, you might want to figure out if the phone is working at all.
A couple of ideas (sorry if any of these seem obvious - it's bad form to miss simple solutions):
1. Is the phone powered on? You can turn it on by holding down the power button (top left edge, above the screen) for several seconds. If you make it to 10 without the phone coming on, then it might be the screen, the battery, or the phone itself.
2. Is the battery dead? Try plugging the phone in and then holding down the power button, as above. If it still won't work, try removing the battery, then plugging it in and doing the same thing over again. When you plug the charger in, you should see a Duracell-like image on the screen, even if the phone is turned off. If you still don't get any sounds or anything on the screen, it sounds like the phone has serious trouble - probably needs professional help.
3. If you hear sounds ("swooshing" on mine) when you turn it on or off and the keyboard lights up, but don't see anything on the screen, it sounds like the screen might be bad - probably needs professional help.
4. Finally, you could try connecting it to your computer with the sync cable. I haven't done that with mine, so you'll have to read the instructioins, but it might let you know that the phone is working internally, but having communications problems through the keyboard and/or screen. If that's the case, you can try fixing it yourself or get an estimate from a professional. Good luck!

No qwerty keyboard

hi! i just had my "missing qwerty keyboard" problem solved today!  im from hong kong and just got my viewty the other day, when i realised that i didnt have the qwerty, and there were no answers anywhere (manual, online...) i brought my phone back to the store.  apparently, eventhough the phones' language has been set to english, you'll still have to set the "writing language" back to english.  you can do this by going to: create new message >> message >> clicking on "options" (button at the bottom left of the screen) >> writing language >> then choose "English" >> OK >> and viola!!  you'll see a confirmation that "language has been changed"
you can double-check by clicking on that drop-down menu button with the "pen icon & A" that allows you to choose text input preferences.  you should be able to find "keyboard" there.


(btw, i love my viewty!!  best phone ever!  i hope youre enjoyin your phone as much as i am!)

Normal 0 Go to Control Panel and click on Sound.
Next click Bluetooth Devices.
Click Add button, lower left corner of the Bluetooth Devices window.
Insure batteries are installed.
Press the Connect Button on the Keyboard (Usually located on the under side of your keyboard) this allows Windows to see the keyboard so you can pair the keyboard to the computer.
On the computer choose My Device Is Set Up and Ready To Be Found.
Click NEXT.
The keyboard should appear in the Add Bluetooth Device Wizard Window.
Select your Keyboard and click Next.
When prompted, select Choose a Passkey For Me and click Next.
Windows will generate and display a Passkey.
Type the Passkey specified on the Bluetooth Keyboard
(Do not use the keyboards keypad when typing the passkey)
No charters will appear on the monitor when typed, but if you make a mistake, you can backspace key.
You must enter the Passkey within 30 seconds.
If you don’t enter the Passkey within 30 seconds, click Back and click Next again.
Once the Passkey is entered, the Keyboard should be connected to the computer.
Finish and follow any on screen instructions.

Hope this helps. Bud

Voice mail does not respond to commands from auto dialer screen

i found this on another forum... hopefully it's the answer we are looking for.

Re: Bug with Phone virtual number pad
I've found the answer to this problem!

Part of the problem is that the screen blacks out shortly after a call is connected.
When that happened I pressed the green phone button to get the keyboard back.

This keyboard image is a dummy. It visually responds to your touch but does not send the signal.

After you dial and your call is connected look at the bottom of the screen and you'll see that the normal menu tab changes and appears with the number 5 and letters jkl on it.

Pull it up with your finger. THIS is the keypad you must use when within a call to send number signals. I tested it and confirmed that it works.

If you have pulled up the dummy keyboard by pressing the green call button from within a call then simply hit the BACK button to see the real keypad tab.

If the screen has gone black and you need to light it up again then you can press BACK, HOME, or MENU to see the real keypad tab -- press anything BUT the green call button (which will give you the dummy keypad).

This dummy keypad is a true design flaw but knowing how to get to the functional one makes it an annoyance not a hindrance to using the phone.

Certain keyboard keys don't work on 700W

I dont necessarily think its the keyboard i think its the sensor under the keypad... You could take it to a Palm authorized tech and see what they say.. or call up Palm themselves.
