Hello.. some of the keys on my nokia e61 keypad, when pressed, are not registering...e.g. when someone is calling me and I press the green (YES) key, the call is not getting picked up. Similarly, the "A" key is not working when pressed. Possible cause is sweat damage from face when speaking into the phone in hot conditions.
Please propose solutions.
I had the same problem once. I forgot my handy e61 was at the back pocket of my pants while i drove home from work. the keys would work, some of the keys got so pressed that they were stuck, it did took me time to unstock these keys by opening my phone. Just be carefull on opening the phone. pls.
There's a foreign object between the keypad and the sensor pad ... dust or lint or a hair or a scrap of paper ...
This is an easily repaired problem that someone with very basic skills and tools can tackle. The steps are:
- Remove battery cover - Remove battery - Start disassembly by removing top rear shell (the bit with the lens cover) by gently prising with a small screw driver. There are five catches - one middle left, one middle right right, one center bottom, two at the top +/- 1/2" from the edges. Gently remove the in the same direction as you would the battery. - Remove front shell by undoing 4 screws now visible on the rear of the phone, one at each corner. Itis a funny torque screw, but I used a small flat and it worked OK
- Gently dust and clean the entire phone - While you're about it, make sure the screen connector is properly engagde. Turn the phone face up. Right at the top and about 1" from the left there is a red screen connector (you'll see the copper of the screen's strip cable terminating there). Gently press down on this connector to reconnect. - Reverse the steps for re-assembly
If you do not feel up to it, take the phone to an agent or repair shop with these instructions. It is a 5 minute job and they should charge accordingly!

Make sure that the keys are actually locked. If you
attempt to unlock a keypad that is not locked, nothing will happen. Look
on the phone's screen for the key icon that indicates the keypad is
locked. If you try to press any of the keys and the word "Unlock"
appears on the screen, your keypad is definitely locked. If you do not
see the indicator but are unable to use the keypad of your Nokia 6085,
your battery could be dead, so try recharging it and then see if the
Enter the unlock sequence. If the key indicator
appears on your screen, you need to enter a simple sequence of keys to
get the keypad working again. For the Nokia 6085, select Unlock and then
quickly press the * key. If you wait more than 1.5 seconds to press the
* key after selecting Unlock, it will not unfreeze the keys so make
sure you enter the sequence very quickly.
Turn off the automatic keyguard. If you are tired of
having to unfreeze the keys every time you want to make a call, you can
program the Nokia 6085 to always remain unlocked. In the menu, go to
Settings, then select Phone, then select Automatic Keyguard and choose

Unlock your Nokia N73's keypad by pressing the left soft key found just above the green call button and then pressing the "*" or asterisk key.
Press a series of five keys on your keypad following the sequence "*7370#" without quotes. Assume that you are dialing this as a number. The N73 should show a confirmation message right after you press the "#" key.
Read the Warnings section before proceeding and choose the "Yes" option from the confirmation message to tell the Nokia N73 to format the phone memory.
1)Try this first *#7370# and enter Default code 12345 or 00000
2)If the Above doesn't work Try *#7780# and enter code 12345 or 00000
3)If the above 2 doesn't work, then finally try this, Switch of the mobile and press * + 3 + Call button + switch on the mobile and hold the 3 keys till the nokia welcome screen displays.
Hope this Helps.
