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) :


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.

Hi I have just tried to set up my son's ocean netbook. I seem to have locked the keyboard somehow!! Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Locked as in it doesn't accept input? Some laptops will have physical buttons on them for disabling the touchpad and keyboard. Please list the make and model if you need further help.

Cursor problems

Boot up in Safe Mode and see if you can use the touchpad. It might have been hijacked by a virus or infection.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode With Networking option (this will give you internet connectivity) and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal. If the cursor and touch pad seems to be ok open your internet browser to download and install MalwareBytes and run a Quick Scan.

Go to and in the search box type: "Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download and install malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When the site opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do not click the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the Gui Interface will open up with an offer to Accept a Trial Version or Decline. CLICK DECLINE you want the totally free version. Run a QUICK SCAN. As it scans, if it finds infections the number will be in red. When it finishes scanning, click SHOW RESULTS. A notepad text document will open up showing you the results. You can close the text document and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTED RESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When it finishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot your machine.

Click Start/Control Panel and look for the Mouse and open it to check the mouse properties. Make sure you don't have the touchpad disabled.

Some models will allow you to toggle the touchpad on or off by clicking on the button that is located at the top of the touch pad in the middle.

Some models will allow you to toggle the touchpad by tapping twice in the upper left hand corner of the touchpad.

Some models will require a keystroke to toggle the touchpad. Press and Hold the ALT or FN function key located at the lower left portion of the keyboard, then hit the key that toggles the touchpad. The correct key to hit will have the icon of a finger pointing at a square that represents the touchpad.

Download and reinstall the touch pad drivers.

Get online and got to In the google search box type: "Dell Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download and install the Touchpad drivers.

You should have a "FN" key on the keyboard and one of the "F" keys should have a symbol that looks like the touch-pad, hold FN while using this key should disable it, failing this in control panel, then mouse and pointers, you should have touchpad setting there should be a disable button/radius.

Reebok Vista Treadmill issue

Have a 2 year old Reebok treadmill. Control panel was replaced right after we bought it. Now, again, the upper half of the panel works but we are not allowed to start anything. Does the whole panel need to be replaced again or is there a fuse or something small that we can do.

This worked for me:
  1. Turn off the printer ( "Power" button).
  2. Hold the button "Resume" (red triangle in a circle), click and hold "Power" - an indicator light green.
  3. While holding the "Power" button, release the button "Resume".
  4. Not releasing the "Power" button, double click "Resume" and release both buttons.
  5. Four times click "Resume"
  6. Once you click "Power", to confirm the selected action (reset counter absorber). Click "Power" again to turn the printer off and once again to turn it on.

Kenwood receiver

I am a little hesitant to offer this help, but you should not pay for others inconsiderate actions. It seems that whenever I tell somebody how to do this procedure, if they have no remote, they get mad and give me a bad rating. You must have the remote for this procedure. And yes, it will work, and no, there is no other way to clear the code. This seems to make people mad. Sometimes they don't believe me. But I do work at an authorized Kenwood repair center and know these things for certain. I will give you this procedure, and if I get another bad rating for giving out this free help that Kenwood doesn't want us to tell anybody, then I will have learned my lesson and never offer this help to anybody again.

Here are the directions right form the service manual for your model.

How to clear the programmable security code (For models
of destination “K”)
∗ Operation 1
1. While “– – – –” is being displayed, press [>>I ] key for 3
seconds or longer while pressing the [AUTO] key on the radio. This
makes the “– – – –” display disappear.
2. Input “KCAR”, using the remote controller.
Press [5] key of the remote controller twice (Input for “K”)
and press [ >>I ] key.
Press [2] key of the remote controller 3 times (Input for
“C”) and press [ >>I ] key.
Press [2] key of the remote controller once (Input for “A”)
and press [ >>I ] key.
Press [7] key of the remote controller twice (Input for “R”)
and press [ >>I ] key.
3. The security is cleared and the unit enters STANDBY
4. If wrong codes are input, “– – – –” will be displayed again.

If you really do not want to buy another remote, see if you can borrow one from a friend, it doesn't need to be from the same model, just make sure it is from a Kenwood car stereo.

If you can not borrow one from a friend, you can take it to an authorized service center for Kenwood and they will do it usually for a small fee. My shop charges $25, I can not say what another shop will charge but my guess is that it would be similar.

I hope you have found this helpful, I am happy to help you further if you need any more help.

By the way, the only good rating is a FixYa!.....all the other ratings just hurt my overall average.
