Typing verticle lines instead of character

When I hit a key ( Mostly the number keys ,3 & 8, but it has happened with letters too) I'm getting two verticle lines where the character should be. ThenI hit the erase key, and it doesn't take them away.

It sounds like the spokes on the P/W are damaged or bent, you can try straightening them or put in a new printwheel.

Hi

Try system restore. Go to START>ACCESSORIES>SYSTEM TOOLS>SYSTEM RESTORE>CHOOSE PREVIOUS RESTORE DATES. Use other restore dates if needed.

Or try this

If your laptop keyboard types wrong characters, it is rather a software issue than an hardware one. This can happen if you accidentally press certain keys on your keyboard, which enable a certain kind of function.
Try the following steps in case your laptop keyboard displays wrong characters:
1.Go to the control panel option
Click ? 'Regional and Language Services' ? 'Languages' ? 'Details' ? 'Key Settings'
2.Select the option 'Switch Between Input Languages' and click on 'Change Key Sequence'
3.Ensure that all the check boxes are unchecked in this window and do the same for 'Switch to...(Keyboard Type)'
4.Click ?
'Ok' ? 'Ok' ? 'Apply' ? 'Ok'.
This should solve your problem

Most of the keys work but when i hit "p" it comes up /p; and "h" comes up 6h


Do you have a (FN) key "also known as the Function Key" on your keyboard?

Many times you will have Numbers and Letters on the same keys.

If you have accidentally hit the FN key to turn it on you will be typing number/symbols instead of letters.

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.

I try to unlock my phone but the lock code i enter is not working


When entering your characters for your selected "unlock" code/password be sure you have the correct character typed.

For example: Are you typing in a letter or a digit instead of the character wanted. Some think they are typing the number "5" say, but they never shifted and they are typing in a letter, like "D". Remember all keys have double representation.

Hope it was something as simple as this. Sorry.

Hope you don't need to reset!

The text dictionary keeps giving me the wrong words and i cant change, how do you knock it off. the phones a samsung d900i


Using T9 mode
T9 is a predictive text input mode that allows you to
key in any character using single keystrokes.
Entering a word in T9 mode
1. Press [2] to [9] to start entering a word. Press
each key once for each letter.
For example, press [4], [3], [5], [5], and [6] to
enter HELLO in T9 mode.
T9 predicts the word that you are typing, and it
may change with each key that you press.
2. Enter the whole word before editing or deleting
characters.
3. When the word displays correctly, go to step 4.
Otherwise, press [0] to display alternative word
choices for the keys that you have pressed.
For example, OF and ME use [6] and [3].
4. Press [ ] to insert a space and enter the next
word.
Other T9 mode operations
• Press [1] to enter periods or apostrophes
automatically.
• Press [ ] to change case. Lower case (No
indicator), Initial capital ( ), and Capital lock ( )
are available.
• Press [ ] to insert a space.
• Press the Navigation keys to move the cursor.
• Press [C] to delete characters one by one. Press
and hold [C] to clear the display.
Adding a new word to the T9 dictionary
This feature may not be available for some languages.
1. Enter the word that you want to add.
2. Press [0] to display alternative words for your key
presses. When there are no more alternative
words, Spell displays on the bottom line.
3. Press <Spell>.
4. Enter the word you want using ABC mode and
press <OK>.
