Motorola md7161 keyboard not working
I know you may not have experience in taking apart the handset or small electronic repair but, it is actually very easy to do. I just bought the same phone set from goodwill for $6.99. The set looks great and actually almost in new condition.
However, I had the same problem with just one handset so, I figured it out so, my set would work properly and now after I fixed it, I have no problems and every handset works great.
Follow these instructions step by step and I assure you it will work again like new.
Step 1.) Take the battery cover off on the back of the handset and pull the cord out carefully from the battery wire to where it connects to.
Step 2.) Unscre the two screws that you see inside. Then, carefully seperate the front cover from the inside of the phone to gain access to the inside of the phone so, you will have access to the 3 small screws that will seperate the circuit board to gain access to the keyboard.
Step 3.) After removing the circuit board and taking out the keyboard and rubber keyboard pad. Carefully wipe all of the buttoms very rigously with an alcohol wipe pad and you will start to notice some plastice film start to come off. This is what you want to remove beacuse, somehow it causes those keys to stick.
Step 5.) After wipeing them clean and reinserting the pad to the cover, the screws in the holes, aliging everything back together and snapping the cover back on, screwing the 2 screws back in and replacing the battery and cover. Test it and you will se that it works just like it did when the phone was brand new.
Hope it worked for you like it did for me and good luck. :)
