That is because the Function key is enabled to type in numbers. Try pressing the Fn key (dont let go) and press Numlock key.

Please let me know how this goes. Thank you for using FixYa.

Blackberry PIN not accepted with desktop Manager


I recently plugged in my blackberry via USB to my computer and received a request to enter my password. If the password was incorrect 10 times then my blackberry would automatically wipe the data.

I had placed a security code to access my blackberry such as: 4404
When I tried typing this code on the BB desktop manager..on my computer. The code was not accepted. i tried over an over, until i realized the blackberrys number key also has a letter key.

Thus instead of typing the numbers 4404 on my computer, i typed the equivalent letter on the 4 key. if 4 is G then i typed gg0g

It worked !!

Some key on the keyboard are typing numbers instead of letters what should i do please?


Hi,

You might have accidentally activated the "Numlock" key on your keyboard. Just press the Numlock and it should type in letters instead of numbers.

If press just the Numlock key will not work, try the combination which is CTRL and Numlock simultaneously.

Hope this helps.

When typing wrong letters and numbers type


You might have a "proportional space" printwheel but the pitch selector is on 10, 12, or 15 instead of PS. OR it is on PS but you have a normal print wheel. Try selecting different pitches. Another thing that causes that problem is sometimes the ribbon or correction tape gets caught in the printwheel.

You need to press the NUM Lock key.
The NUM lock key is usually the same key as the ScrLk key but to select the NUM lock you need to press and hold down the Shift key and then press the NumLk/ScrLk key. A LED light will light up to indicate the number keypad is on.
