    It also occures when you change your Font from say arial to another format. Change formats and it will come back.

When I type a letter it sticks and keep typing the same letter.


Keyboards sit out exposed to all kinds of debris. Dust, ashes and so on can settle into the area around the keys and cause problems. Turning the keyboard upside down and patting it on the backside might help. You'll be amazed at what comes out. A can of compressed air might also do the trick but again, upside down.
Keyboards are cheap and they really aren't worth fixing. But if it becomes too frustrating, and it's not a wireless keyboard, you might try putting it in the dishwasher upside down. This is a last resort when you've given up and are ready to buy a new keyboard. And I'd only do this if someone spilled something on it.
If it doesn't work now, this won't make it work any less. Well, actually, it could. LOL
Good luck.

Screen upside down


I have seen a lot of questions of this sort but I have never this this inversion in a calculator. You could try to reinstall the Operating system. For the TI83 Plus, the last OS version is 1.19. If it is a TI84Plus/TI83 Plus Silver Edition the OS version number is around version 2.55 MP.

My laptop keboard is acting up sometime the letters dont want to type.sometime its a letter and sometime its another letter and then sometime it works perfectly


You may have unwanted debris under the keys. Turn the keyboard upside down and brush gently between the keys. If the problem then affects another key you know you are on the right track - the debris is moving around.

How do you get the letters out of the playmobil mailbox


There's a slot to drop the letters in, but mailbox doesn't open.
To get letters out, had to hold upside down at an angle, then use small nail to "hook" edge of letter and get it to fall out on it's own.

When I type the letter "s" I get the save file window. When I type the letter "p" I get the print window.


This means that your "Ctrl"button at your keyboard is pressed down. Take a look for something that is keeping either of the 2 Ctrl buttons pressed. Otherwise it's a keyboard's problem. Shut down the notebook and check the buttons for proper mechanical movement of the keys.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

My sumsung SGH-E250 FREZZES SOMETMES WHEN SWICTH IT OFF AND BACK ON THE LETTERS BECOME UPSIDE DOWN.


Hi,

the problem can be solved.The phone has two fault:


the freezing of the phone

and

the upside down letters.

The freezing the phone is caused when there is virus infection on the phone or there is an application that is affected.

The phones memory has been corrupted and it needs to be restored by flashing the phone.

And for the upside down letters, when the flex of the phone that is connected to the front board that makes the screen display has cut, it starts to display funny letters. So the flex of the phone needs to be replaced with another one for those funny letters to stop.

Take care and good luck.

Keys locking, screen changing set up, loud beeping, cannot log on


This Should Be Taken To A Specialist. The Screen Goes Upside Down Because There Is A Malfunction In The Magnetic Sensors So It Believes Its Closed. The Other Problems Just Sound Hay Wire.
Hope You Get It Fixed

I think the "one" is a letter i, the upside down U is a letter n, and the zero-two is the service your car is due to go in for.
Hope this helps, D. (a VW owner myself)
