I would try a battery pull if you haven't already.
It's most likely moisture damage, I would remove the back cover of your phone and check the battery. There is a white moisture strip on the battery. If it's pink/red and not white, you have moisture damage.
If you can't think of any spills, there are a few other things that could have happened.
For example having it in your pocket while you were sweating heavily?
Or having it in a high humidity environment like a steamy bathroom?
Drop in in the snow?
The only real way to get it fixed is to replace the keyboard entirely.
Thankfully on the BlackBerry it's not too difficult and the keyboard isn't too expensive.
If it's under any sort of warranty, take it to your carrier and they should just replace it.
If not, go to eBay and purchase a BlackBerry Curve 8520 keyboard, then view the video to see how to replace the keyboard.

My computer keyboard types double letters what she stops that?


There might be dust or dirt particles in between the keys, first thing I would try is flipping the keyboard upside down and tapping it all over so stuff comes out then I would get one of those compressed air cans and blow in between all the keys. If possible remove the center key gently with a flathead screw driver and blow in there also.

If you can successfully log into your account on your computer. Then you must be typing your password in correctly on the phone. Sometimes auto correct will effect password spots. Or you might need to just type really slow and make sure your not hitting one letter and it's registering as another letter. Which is the most common sign in problems I've seen on touch based phones.

My keyboard automatically typing letter z and /////////... continuously even without pressing my keyboard. how can i solve this problem? thanks..


One of two things are happening. Either your keys are stuck due to debris and/or dust on your keyboard or someone has created "hot keys" possibly as a joke and they are typing it. Get a coin and insert it under the key and pull upwards. Keys pop on and off the keyboard. It will not hurt it. Remove both keys and check for dirt and dust under them. If this is not the problem then you have hot keys set. In order to walk you through disengaging them I would need to know your operating system and if removing and cleaning the keys worked first. Please let me know this by going back to your original question posted on fixya and using the comment or reply button.

All of the sudden my fan stopped working completely. It does have a lot of dust in it. It is 12 inches and says Model HV-9 C. I tried to plug it in several different plugs, still doesn't work.


take front off of fan. then blow the motor out good to get rid of dirt and dust. also when apart oil the front and back of armature, to make it run better.

Wrong character displayed when typing certain letters and other letters are just continuing being typed although not pressing down on the letter. Keyboard seems to have a life of its own.


when your mac is off, try blowing some air in between the keys from all angles. Maybe to eliminate the keypad if tha'ts not the issue, try an external keyboard (wireless or usb connected) & see if everything types ok. If it does, you most likely have some dust/hairs/debris in your keypad. It happens..

My W, A, and S keys were paralyzed for a few days...
the cause...one strand of hair from one of my dogs...Thanks alot Max..

Try to clean under the keyboard. It sounds like dust or other fine debris has accumulated under the keyboard. Use some compressed air to blow out the fine dust. This has worked many times for me.
