Directional Buttons dont work

My directional buttons dont work at all, the power and back buttons do and the reset an volume buttons work. At first the direction worked fine, after awhile they went back to front, now they dont work at all!!! Anyone know how to fix this problem? I was gonna send it off to Sony for repair but at £70 I might as well buy a new one if I cant fix it myself.

Fire stick remote not working

Restart the device: Settings > System > Restart, then once restarted unplug the power cable for 5 seconds then plug back in. I hope this helps you and hopefully fixes your Fire TV issues. Press the Menu + Left (directional key) + Back buttons at once for 10 seconds. These are the steps for factory resetting of remote.

How do I factory reset a Busbi 7 tablet... it boots and gets stuck on the android screen..

1. Power the device down by holding the power and volume up buttons until the screen turns off. Also, remove the SD card you might have inserted into the device.

2. When the device is powered off, hold the power and the volume up and down buttons simultaneously. When the Pandigital logo appears then, release the three buttons

3. Immediately again press all three of the power and volume buttons until the Pandigital logo appears again, then let go. The device then should display an image of a triangle with an Android robot and an exclamation point.

4. Once the Android triangle image appears tap and release the power and volume up and down buttons.

5. To navigate through the recovery use the volume down button until "Wipe data and cache" is highlighted.

6. Tap the power button to select "Wipe data and cache", you will then be asked to confirm you selection. Use the volume down button to highlight "Yes" then tap the power button to confirm.

7. Once the system has wiped the cache and data you will be directed back to the main menu of recovery mode. "Reboot system now" should be highlighted, if not use the volume down button to highlight this option.

8. Tap the power button to select "Reboot system now" once it has been highlighted.

9. After a few moments, the device will reboot. When it has fully powered up you will be directed to the device`s initial setup wizard. Please follow these prompts to reset your preferences.

10. Once you have completed the setup wizard your device will be as good as new.

This may be an intermittant on the circuit board or the switch assembly inside of the camera. Was the camera dropped?

I would not suggest trying to fix this yourself unless you have experience in this type of service and have spare parts.

Directional buttons for PSP not working.

Star wars: force unleashed was a bad game... anyways:
Maybe the disk isnt read rite by your psp. maybe the disk is wrong?
Or it could just be that you dont use the directional buttons for gameplay, just the analog stick. XD

Reseting my zune

Try to reset it. Press the back button (<-) and the up button ( above the Enter key) simultaneously. If this doesnt work, continue to press the back button with other directional buttons to see if this gives you a result.

Master reset on motorola rzr 2

HI again,
1st let me tell u. U have to give a frequent try to it.
Its a tricky.
1) The two buttons work as menu buttons. One is in the center of directional keys and second is above the directional keys. U hv to press the second menu button above the directional keys.
2) While holding menu button, a message appears "shortcut not allowed for this item". The change of 4-digits slot to 6-digits slot may be after u do it also. At this time, type 000000 (six zero). Anyway, try it holding menu for 3-4 seconds or by holding it for a little long time.

Looking for ur kind feedback. Dont forget to Rate my solution too.
Be sure to post a clarification request after ur problem is solved.

Yes. on the side of the phone there's a voice command button .. with a twist ... it'll respond to voice command but it'll also respond to the directional buttons and sometimes .. the volume buttons work as directional buttons as well.
