Keyboard and tracking ball problems

My keyboard letters are printing the alt options rather than letters. The alt key doesn't work at all. When scrolling through a menu option, like text messages for example, the tracking ball skips over every other text so that there is n o way to access the ones in between. Similarly, in address book, tracking ball skips over multiple entries. Any thoughts or suggestion? ...Or is it time to get it fixed or replaced? Thanks.

Sounds like you have 2 different problems. Your trackball probably needs to be replaced and also your keypad needs to be cleaned or replaced.

Want to make german Umlaut symbols on keyboard


Every so often you may find you need to type a character on your computer that is either foreign or just not available on a standard keyboard.
The German umlaut is once such symbol.
Used in the German language to indicate a change in sound, the umlaut can sometimes be found in names and words we use in the United States as well.
The literary Bronte sisters, for example, use an umlaut over the E in their last name.
Umlaut's can be found over the vowels A, E, I, O, U and Y in both lowercase and uppercase forms

Hold down the alt key on your PC.
The next step depends on the vowel and case you want for your umlaut.
If you want a lowercase A with an umlaut, type the numbers 0228 on the keypad while holding down the alt key.
If you want an uppercase A with an umlaut, hold down the alt key and type 0196.
Hold down the alt key and type 0235 for a lowercase E with an umlaut.
Hold down alt and type 0203 for an uppercase E with an umlaut.


Hold down the alt key and type 0239 for a lowercase I with an umlaut. Hold down alt and type 0207 for an uppercase I with an umlaut.


Hold down the alt key and type 0246 for a lowercase O with an umlaut.
Hold down alt and type 0214 for an uppercase O with an umlaut.


Hold down the alt key and type 0252 for a lowercase U with an umlaut.
Hold down alt and type 0220 for an uppercase U with an umlaut.


Hold down the alt key and type 0255 for a lowercase Y with an umlaut.
Hold down alt and type 0159 for an uppercase Y with an umlaut.

Typing an Umlaut on a Mac


Hold down the option key on a Mac computer and press the letter u.
Then release both keys and type the letter for which you want the umlaut.
For example, if you want a lowercase A with an umlaut, you would hold down option and u, release, and then type the letter a.
If you want an uppercase A, you would hold down option and the u key, release and then type the letter A.


Hold down option and u, release, and then type the letter e for an umlaut over a lowercase E.
If you want an uppercase E, you would hold down option and the u key, release and then type the letter E.


Hold down option and u, release, and then type the letter i for an umlaut over a lowercase I.
If you want an uppercase I, you would hold down option and the u key, release and then type the letter I.


Hold down option and u, release, and then type the letter o for an umlaut over a lowercase O.
If you want an uppercase O, you would hold down option and the u key, release and then type the letter O.


Hold down option and u, release, and then type the letter u for an umlaut over a lowercase U.
If you want an uppercase U, you would hold down option and the u key, release and then type the letter U. And for an umlaut over an uppercase Y, hold down option and u, release, and then type the letter Y.
For a lowercase Y, hold down option and u, release, and then type the letter y.

Th lttr btwn d and f will not print


Turn the keyboard upside down and shake it vigourously. Stuff will fall out. Then tap one corner hard on the desk. Test it. If it still will not work then replace the keyboard.
Other wise use the number pad and hold down the ALT key to generate your letters.
ALT 67 = C
ALT 99 = c

I can't dial out.


The Phone application on the BlackBerry smartphone automatically converts phone numbers that include letters into the associated numbers.
To key a phone number that contains letters, press the right Shift key or the Alt key and type. The letters appear on your screen, but the BlackBerry smartphone translates them into the appropriate numbers when the phone call is made.
For example, to call 1-877-BLK-BERR (1-877-255-2377) from your BlackBerry smartphone,
  1. Open the Phone application.
  2. Type 1877.
  3. Press and hold the Alt or right Shift key and type BLKBERR.
  4. Display the menu and select Call 1877BLKBERR or press Enter. When the phone number is dialed, the letters are converted to numbers on the screen.
  5. To end the phone call, hold down the Escape key.
To return to the Home screen from any other screen, press the End key.
To lock the device, set a password. Hold the * key.
To unlock the device, press the * key. Click Unlock. Type your password.
To lock the keyboard, hold the * key.
To unlock the keyboard, press the * key

To switch the input language, hold the Alt key and press the Enter key. Continue to hold the Alt key and select a language. Release the Alt key to switch to that language.
To switch back to your original input language, press the Alt key + the Enter key.

I hope this helps
