    None of my buttons will work either.

    Except i can turn it off.

    It's really strange and starting to really irritate me.

    It's a pretty new phone but the keyboard and side buttons wont work

    No buttons would work except the off button, and it automatically dials number 7, and 9, and go on to voice record by itself, and starts deleting dialed calls. then it started working the next day for about 5 minutes, and stopped..
    I took care of it like a baby, never dropped, no scratches even. Should not have happened, very pissed.

    My phone worked fine & then all of the sudden they stopped working. The key pad & the side buttons won't work. The only button that works is the red on/off button. I still receive phone calls but I'm unable to awnser them. Please help.

    Same problem. Only the red button works to put it on. No asking foor SIM-code, just Hellomoto appears on the screen. To power off i have to remove the battery.

    Have same problem. Neither the side buttons nor the key pad buttons. Can call using car bluetooth and can answer the phone when I get in coming calls. Nothing else works. Took it to AT&T and was told I would have to get a new phone! This phone is 2 years old.

    none of my buttons work either! but my phone does work in my car when i use sync.... how annoying! It doesn't turn off unless i take out the battery.  

  • s_claffey Oct 19, 2008

    The only button my phone that functions is the red on/off button. Taking the battery out did nothing except bring up an "invalid battery" message, which went away upon another restart. Sometimes when I push the menu buttons, the voice record option comes up. I can receive calls, but can't answer them.

Try, or take it to a mobile service center to have it unlock there for a small fee.

1213joec - the flexcable on the phone needs to be replaced.

Slayer57689 - the flexcable needs to be replaced

gandon - you need to have a keypad flex file reloaded on the phone to get this problem fix.

viogil - replaced both the flexcable and the cable connected on the earpiece of the phone.

nmac - replaced both the flexcable and the cable connected on the earpiece of the phone.

Guest - keypad needs to be replaced and phone needs to be reflash.

My samsung sgh-t819 is not working

My phone did this a few times as well. It went on for a few days, I couldn't answer my phone unless it was closed and I slid it open, couldn't look at text messages, nothing. Finally it died and I recharged it and it started working again.
Later on the phone also would act like I was randomly opening it, so it would light up, causing the battery to die faster. Once it died completely I charged it and it worked fine again. So far it's been a month and it hasn't happened again. Now though my phone stops working where I can't receive calls or text or make calls or send texts. This can last for 20 minutes to 3 hours at a time. I can't wait to get a new phone!!!

Buttons dont work

Maybe there is dirt and debris in the buttons, try dismantelling your phone and clean the buttons with isopropyl alcohol.

Motorola SLVR buttons do not work

I don't know but mine's doing the exact same thing. Mine also keeps the screen on almost all the time, sometimes it turns itself on and back off and back on for hours. Once every button EXCEPT the red button worked... and once only the top left button worked, so i could answer calls but couldn't hang up. My friends enjoyed messing with me for that one.

No buttons work...not even the volume and others along side

I had the EXACT same problem this morning. After leaving the cingular store where the guy just wanted to sell me a new phone, I went home and took the phone apart - just took off the battery cover, battery, sim card and the rest of the back cover, reattached cover, put everything back together and everything works fine now! Try it - good luck! You need a T5 torx bit to remove the two screws holding on the back cover.

Buttons don't work!

None of the buttons will work. Is there any kind of locking device that maybe we've done and not realize it? The lights come on but you can not answer or press any keys?
