You're kind of vague on your problem. If it's the smaller blue numbers for the calculator, you will need to use the function (fn) key. Hold the fn key and press the key the reads number lock (num lock), this should return the keys back to letters. You can find more info on the fn key and numbers lock under help in the start menu. If this isn't your problem, be more specific, and I'll be more than happy to help.

Inputting names. Three letters on keypad. how do I select the letter I need ?


You have to press 2 keys for each letter. Example - Bob - Press the letter B then press 2, next press O then press 3, next press B then press 2. The number key tells which letter out of the 3 letters that you want to use.

Try to use different keypad. It's a good thing you can open the phone. Try to clean the keypad contacts with alcohol also the keypad board, clean it using mechanical eraser.

How do I change the name and fax number on the top of my outgoing faxes


The software that came with the printer will have a "setup" or "settings" icon. You can change it there.

If you can't find it or never installed it you can delete the printer software and re-install it and you can start from scratch with the new information you want.

Hi I have a 1500 and I am having trouble figuring out how to change back and forth the keys with letters and numbers. Thanks....Lee


These keys with numbers and letter have been placed to avoid having a separate number keypad as you have on a PC keyboard. There is also an led that glows when you press the Num LK (for Number Lock) key. When the led is glowing, you will get numbers and letter if it is not glowing. This arrangement has been made to save space on the laptop. You get a separate number keypad as an add on for those who need to use both hands typing numbers and letters simultaneously.

Please tell me how to text message, step by step


if your using the motorola k1 if you look at the keypad number 2 has ABC under it as if you wanted to use A press the button once for B press it twice and C three times and so on if you look at the numbers they all have letters under the number its just pressing numbers to get the letter up but if you use a pc or laptop much you would be better with a phone with a qwerty keypad!

Need to change name and number


Press the MENU button and press 7, then 2 on the numbers keypad. You can then use the keypad to change the fax header. Press the keypad numbers corresponding to the letters you need. It will cycle through lower case first, then upper case. Press the RIGHT arrow button to advance one space between letters.
