If the keys were subject to any moisture they will give the results you see in most cases. you can reload the OS as suggested by SyTner but be sure to follow the instructions. I’m not suggesting you wont be able to reload the OS but you did indicate you did not understand what a batter pull was, that usually means the person will have further difficulty with repair. As I said before, I have a daughter and she had issues with her BB and said it never was wet even a bit. I later found out that in her mind having the BB in the bathroom with a shower running did not constitute being wet. After I explained the shower and the steam stuff if really water( enter the dumb look) she admitted it “might” have been a little wet because she had to wipe the screen to see the texts. If this is the case and the OS replace does not work and because the time lag, the keys may be damaged. In that case you have a couple of options. Replace the BB or attempt to clean or replace the keyboard. This all depends on your ability. There are videos on the internet that will step you thru the process if you decide to try. You could also send it in for repair to a good shop. Some are in the vendor section on this site.
