First try repeatedly pressing 8 key while at Home screen to see if problem is permanent or intermittent.
Pressing a number key at Home screen will cause the phone to display 8 if any press is recoginized/dialing.

If it is intermittent, then it is likely a hardware problem. Disassemble phone to keypad/phone printed circuit interface. Clean interface with alcohol or clean pencil eraser and disconnect/reconnect any cable interfaces. This may be worth a try even if key is not intermittent.

If this doesn't work or you don't want to disassemble, you can try a phone Hard Reset. See my other solutions on how to do a Hard Reset. Basically, hold down both left and right softkeys while turning on the phone. A Reset screen will display. Note all personal apps and data you added to phone since new is lost.

My Quantum model 3212 keypad - the number 8 sticks and will not work all the time. How can i change the code so we don't have to use the number 8

On the rear of the motor unit near where all those white wires go you will find the smart/learn button. Press and immediately release this and then walk over to your keypad and key in any 4 digit code you like and press enter.

Buttons #3 & 8 on control panel not working

Sounds like your keypad has failed and you need the fan circuit repaired on the control panel.

We regularly repair these control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week with a one-year guarantee.

Add to that about $75 for the keypad.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
