Something such as coffee or soda may have been spilled in the phone causing a loss of connectivity between the keypad and the contacts. The keypad is a rubber membrane with soft round nubs on the bottom that press against gold circuit board contacts when depressed. It would have to be disassembled and clean with q-tips and rubbing alcohol or similar solution. This is for a professional or handy person to perform only

Key Pad buttons require more force to accept the input - loosing memory!


I have the same phone with the same problem and didn't want to part with it either. The cause of the problem are skin oils that seep down the rubber keys, and through slots at the base of the molded pad, thereby interfering with electrical contact. There is a vendor on ebay that sells a tape like pad with larger contacts that solves the problem perfectly. Go to ebay and use the following search term (I know this isn't the same model number, but its apparently compatible) :

Panasonic KX-TGA230 KX-TGA270 KX-TGA230B BUTTON FIX

The price is 5.95 including shipping. The repair pad will come with an instruction sheet, or you can go to the website on the instruction sheet and download about a 40Meg video file that shows you exactly how to make the repair. My phone operates with a nice light touch now that its fixed. Good luck.
