Question about Cell Phones

2 Answers

Keypad issue I am having several issues with the keypad: When I type the number 5 it sometimes gives me the number 7. When I am texting half the time when I type the letters "jkl" I get "pqr". But not always with continuity, it may give me a combination of both!? When I search through the contacts using the down key it automatically goes to the letter "t". The same thing happens when I try doing a contacts search physically typing the letters. Thank you for any assistance. I contacted Motorola USA and they wont help since the phone is not a US market phone.

I used the live troubleshooting service for $19.95 and was provided a tech from India who decisively knew the problem and how to resolve it. Despite the tech being in India he knew the phone inside and out and was prepared to help me take it apart to reach the keypad itself. I do not have the tool but was able to make a executive decision singularly based on the conversation with the tech. What I did was the following: I powered down the phone, removed the battery and began applying extreme pressure on both sides of the opened phone applying direct pressure to the sides and edges of the keypad, than I moved to firm pressure on the entire keypad surface. Starting from the center and moving outwards I applied pressure to the keypad for a couple of minutes. The keypad felt tight and secure when I was done. I put the battery back in and powered the phone back up. I have not had any issues with the keypad since than.

I have a very similar issue with my GE in wall oven, circa 1999. I learned it was due to one of two issues.
1. The touch panel keypad is shorting out somewhere along the ribbon wire circuit. Replacement likely needed.
2. The microcontroller brain of the oven is faulty. Replacement likely needed.
My issue was the keypad. I personally went to RadioShack and prototyped a new circuit board to reverse engineer the keypad. The flimsy keypad replacement was $244.00 for a new one, however they no longer make the keypad. For less than $20 and a little solder I have a fully functioning replacement.

    2005 F150 Keyless Entry


    There is a technical service bulletin out on this probelm on 2004/2005 F150.
    ISSUE: Some 2004-2005 F-150 vehicles built through 2/7/2005, may exhibit an inoperative keyless entry keypad. This may be due to the vehicle security module (VSM) not being configured to accept keyless entry keypad input.

    The fix is to reprogam the vehicle security module with as-built data. So it would have to go to the dealer to do this.
    The tsb number is 05-5-5.

    F3 on a GE microwave indicates a defective keypad.

    The keypad is a thin plastic membrane type that is glued to the plastic control panel frame.

    If none or only some of the pads are working, there may be some foreign substance on the circuit board, the keypad connection, or inside the layers of the keypad, the latter of which cannot be repaired.

    Trouble is sometimes due to spray cleaner being sprayed directly onto the keypad. Cleaner should be sprayed on the cloth first, then use the cloth to wipe the keypad clean.

    Never use an ammonia-based cleaner on plastic as the ammonia can attack and crack it.

    A handy person can remove the control panel frame and see if there's any liquid inside on or behind the panel. If so, it is possible to dry it out, but often that does not work.

    Another thing is to unlpug the power at the mains for several seconds. Plug it back in and see if it works. A reset may do it.

    At power-up, the display should flash or show a text message. If not, a key may be stuck due to a foreign substance or a defective keypad.

    If certain keys are not working, there may be some foreign substance at the point where the green or blue plastic strip from the keypad plugs into the circuit board.

    To check that, see our critical safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site. You'll find a link to our site in our
    listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

    1. Be sure the oven is disconnected from the power line while you are taking it apart.

    2. The keypad connection is the green or blue translucent plastic strip that plugs into a connector near the edge of the board.

    3. There are two tiny tabs (one on each side) of the connector that you can gently pull up on to unlock the connector.

    4. Then the keypad strip will lift out. Clean both sides of the end of the strip with a pencil eraser or alcohol-based cleaner if you like, but do not use ammonia-based cleaner. Dry the end of the strip.

    5. Put the keypad strip back in, making sure both sides are down fully.

    6. While holding the strip down, push the connector back down to lock it.

    7. Try the keys again with the door closed.
