Samsung p6800 screen keyboard displaying wrong characters


I could be wrong but it sounds like your keyboard layout is set to swype instead of qwerty. On the bottom left of the keyboard is the setting option.

I can not get a letter to appear on my keyboard


I understand that a letter is not displayed on a screen while you press the key. Since this difficulty is happening for a single letter, I think the issue might be hardware related. To confirm that it is a hardware issue, you can try an external keyboard.
If the letter is not displayed even while using the external keyboard, you might need to reinstall the keyboard driver or restore the system or reinstall the operating system.

I have a Dell Inspiron laptop, and certain letter


This could be a possible hardware issue. You can try to use an external USB keyboard and check if the keys are working or not. If you do not have an external keyboard, you can try to use the onscreen keyboard. To do this, go to start>programs>accessories> accessiblity and then choose on-screen keyboard. Open a notepad and try to use the keys which are not working using the onscreen keyboard. If onscreen keyboard works fine , then you need to get the keyboard replaced.

Your keyboard is faulty - either due to a mechanical failure or spillage.

This is pictures of a different brand, however the premise is still the same...

An easy repair - remove the top trim bezel (just under the screen) this will allow access to 2-3 screws.

Remove the screws, and tilt the keyboard out.

Remove the ribbon cable.

Install reverse of removal.

thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

It is possible that you have a bad keyboard. The best way to test whether this is a hardware issue or a software issue with Windows is to attach a USB keyboard and see if you have the same random results. If the keyboard is bad, which could be from something being dropped on it, a spill, or just worn out, the replacement part is readily available on eBay or other online parts sites for less than $35 and the replacement procedure is rather simple. The keyboard itself is not a fixable part.
