View Full Version : 8700 'Q' key prints 'UO'

Any help with this would be wonderfull.

So I have a BlackBerry 8700g which I unlocked and am now using with AT&T, and it has a little problem. This is a new problem, just started today. When I press the 'Q' key it prints 'uo'. Every once and a while it will print a 'q' but rarely. This is really annoying.

I already put rubbing alcohol on the keyboard, and then dried it out... but it didn't help.

Anyone have any ideas?

Check your Auto Text in Option. Remove/Delete your auto text for Q. Hope it's right :razz:

Ensure that the locale settings e.g input method are set to the right country i.e "English - USA". If set to anything otherwise this would alter the keyboard layout.

Thanks everybody, I got it fixed. In case anyone else was having this problem, here's what I did:

I removed the front and back case, exposing the keyboard and the keyboard frame. I soaked the keys and the frame in rubbing alcohol, then I dried them both with a hair dryer on the cool setting. Then I put he phone back together, and it's all working perfectly.

Thanks for your help though!
