Hi,

This is a common problem with these keyboards. Even though they may look clean, however they could be at fault. Try to dissemble above mentioned keys and then assemble it. Sometimes, it works like charm. Unless, you need to replace the keyboard.

One other problem could be a keyboard IC on mainboard. However, i have only replaced it once. This is a rare possibility and usually seen in notebooks older than 5 years.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Thanks for your response!!

    It depends. If only those keys are creating an issue, you could replace only these keys. But, it would be tough to get only these keys. Also, it is better to replace the keyboard as there is no guarantee that it these could not happen to the other keys.

    If you want to buy the keyboard, you could buy it from:-

    http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-Keyboard-Toshiba...

    Note - You could get keyboard from $15 - $20 depending upon Brands.

    However, i could advise you to seek a local repair if you do not have any notebook repair experience as this is quite a tricky job to replace keyboard.


    Let me know,if needed further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

Can you hold the Fn key and then press the keys that you mentioned and see if they appear as typed? If yes, then your keys were just locked to Function mode. Please let me know.

Alot of times if you can wire it into your fuse panel it will quit anytime you hook up a radio directly to your battery your asking for recieve problems because that is where all your high current items like a blower are connected ( or atleast very close ) Anyway give that a shot . GOOD LUCK Dan

Keyboard problem: multiple letters when one is pressed


sorry but even a small amount of liquid can work its way under the keys. you could try getting a can of compressed air to dissipate the liquid that has seeped under the keys, if not then you will need a new keyboard or take the keyboard apart

My 5 key won't work


The keypad, or the ribbon cable is going defective. The fix is to change the keypad and the ribbon cable.

You will have to give the phone to the Motorla service rep for that.
