    Recently my keypad for alpha and numeric no longer pops up so cannot type, set times, delete info, etc. I have reset several times but still not functioning and have deleted programs to increase drive space.

    I have an 18 month old Tungsten E2 that I also cannot access the keyboard. Any idea where to get the digitizer fixed and how much? It sure has had a very short lifespan. Is there a better, more sturdy PDA anyone recommends?

  • Anonymous Oct 20, 2008

    My pad has shifted, which does not allow me to access the keyboard. My old palm did the same thing. This is getting tiresome.

Try recalibrating your digitizer first
if that doesn't solve the problem then your physical digitizer is damaged (since the alpha and numeric buttons are both at the bottom and they are both broken) you'll have to replace it yourself or get a repair shop to do it for you. Don't forget you can still manage your data via the Palm Desktop software that came with your pda.

Keypad doesn't work


Keypad or the Touchpad? Are you saying your keys don't work or is it that the mouse pointer is frozen and not working?

If it's the touchpad and mouse pointer:
I think you have the Touch Pad disabled. You can toggle the touch pad between enable and disable by a couple of ways depending on the manufacturer. On some at the very top of the touchpad there might be a button in the middle that you can press that toggles the touchpad. On others it might be a sequence of key strokes. For example you might have to Press and Hold the ALT or FN key then hit the corresponding key at the top of the keyboard that toggles it. Most times the correct key to hit will have the icon of a finger pointing at a square area that represents the touchpad.

If it's the Keyboard:
Maybe your keyboard has been hijacked by a virus or infection. Maybe you spilled a liquid on the keyboard. Maybe the keyboard cable needs to be reseated ( taken out and put back in).

Have you tried your keyboard in Safe Mode? Boot into Safe Mode and see if the Keyboard works, if so you know you have a virus or infection.

Go to www.google.com and in the search box type:"download.cnet.com" (without the quotes). Click the link to goto the site and look on the left side when the site opens up and you will see agray area that says FIND SOFTWARE. In the white search box under FindSoftware type: "Virtual Keyboard" (without the quotes) and click themirror to search. When the search results come back look for FREE VIRTUALKEYBOARD. Download and Install it. It's totally FREE. Alsouncheck anything that pops up other than the license agreement during thedownload and installation. You only want the Free Keyboard and not theother junk.

You can use it to solve your keyboard problem. Just open up whatever it is youwant to type on such as the web address in an browser, a word document, etc.,then open the Free Virtual Keyboard and it will sit on top of whatever you weredoing. You can move it around so that it is not in your way also.

My blitz doesnt text


Try this. Touch Keypad simulates a wireless phone keypad on the touch screen to allow you to enter text, numbers, and symbols just as if you were using a wireless phone keypad. Touch Keyboard simulates a 20-key QWERTY (typewriter) keyboard on the touch screen to allow you to enter text, numbers, and symbols similar to the way you would using a QWERTY keyboard. To use Touch Keypad or Touch Keyboard:  In a program, tap the Input Selector arrow, and then tap Touch Keypad or Touch Keyboard. To type lowercase letters, tap the keys on the dial pad or keyboard. To type a single uppercase letter, tap the Shift key and then tap the corresponding key. To type all uppercase letters, tap the Shift key twice. To change back to all lowercase letters, tap again. To enter a space after the word, tap the Space key. To start a new line, tap the Enter key. To backspace and delete a single character in any input mode, press the Back key. To open the Symbol pad, tap the Symbol key. To change the input mode:  Tap the Input mode key to switch to a different input mode: XT9 (predictive), Multitap (abc), or Numeric (123).

Hope this helps, let me know if this works or if I can help you with anything else.

I cannot get the Qwerty Keyboard on my HTC Touch HD


Hi I just got this phone yesterday - its really awesome. I had the same problem - to change the keyboard just press the keyboard button on the bottom like you usually do to bring it up, then press the little up arrow next to that button. This gives you a selection of keyboards to use, they are much better as they are TouchFlo 3d keyboards.
