Default BB 8900 keypad hangs at times

Please Login to Remove!

Guys anyone experienced this glitch with your Javelins?

All of a sudden my keypads wont respond. whatever I do it stays that way.
It happens more often now and I cant use my BB for hours, and then all of a sudden after 4-5 hours it just starts working.
I updated to the latest software/tried battery pull but the glitch still happens.

Any help please.

How can I do a clean restore.

thanks.

I had the same thing happen. I believe what is happening is that one or more keys are getting "stuck" for some reason. One sign was when the keyboard appeared to work, alt+key simultaneous combinations could not be used but alt then key combinations could be used. Oddly enough what helped the issue was squeezing the device on the right and left side just below the USB port. The keyboard ribbon cable is located just below the USB port and applying pressure there seems to shift the delicate cable somewhat so it makes contact again. In the end, I had to return the unit as defective.
