Default 8130 double letter typing problem

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

My 8130 types two letters instead of one when I use the first column of keys (ie. qwaszx alt). I can't use the alt key it just types either an asterisk or pound sign. This only happens intermittently, sometimes it works fine.

Any help would greatly appreciated...

Welcome to the forums.

Did you happen to get the device wet?

Not that I know of. It's been doing it off and on for a few weeks probably.

It sounds like the device came in contact with moisture at some point.

So, there's nothing to do to fix this problem then?
