SE K850i menu touch screen button not working properly

My K850i is crazy now, the menu button (touchscreen) is not working, if you press 8 or 5 buttons they activate the menu button and at times you can't unlock the phone because the menu button presses itself, Can you help?

    SE K850i menu touch screen button not working properly problem

  • Manix1 Jun 25, 2008

    Taking the phone in seems to be righ step, a good help would be to know why this happens, I mean, is it a software problem? Hardware? why this happens to many SE K850i? is it a design issue? if so, the advice would be to throw it away. The SE people has it now, I'll let you know what they find out, if they are able to find something... Thx anyway!

Do you all have auto keylock on?

I had this problem it drove me nearly insane for 3 weeks, I took it back to the shop I brought the phone from to have it sent off for repair BUT they had no loan phone.

As a tempory soloution so I could still use the phone to make outgoing calls I turned off autokeylock. and have so far i've had 1 week trouble free it hasn't locked up once! I can still lock the keypad it appears in my phones case to be a software glitch keeping the keypad autolocked.

Well, You may need to change inner keypad PCB of the phone, in most cases problem solved after changing PCB Keypad.

take to nearest shop and they will do the job for you.

None of my touch screen buttons work..but they do sometimes so I'm guessing its a software issue. It's incredibly annoying.

5. Tap "Language and keyboard." Tap "Keyboard settings." Tap "Tutorial" and go through the steps that appear on your screen.
6. Once this is finished, turn your phone off and on again. Your keyboard has been adjusted, which activates a re-calibration of the capacitive touchscreen. (Capacitive screens are technically far more accurate that resistive, and so a full calibration tool is not included with Android phones.)
