As of last week, I started to notice that the Enter key, on my 8310 Curve, was losing sensitivity. Where I used to be able to simply push the key and it would work, I now find myself having to mash the key... or push it numerous times for it to work. All the other keys work fine, it's just this one key that is causing me troubles.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this? Or am I dealing with a failing device?
Either it's got a little corrosion between the concave metal button and the keyboard or the plastic keypad itself has been damaged. Under the portion of the key you can see is a post that rests on the keyboard contact. That post can get smashed and not work as well as when new. I've seen this when devices get dropped. A new plastic keypad can fix this. Either way it requires disassembling the device (not an easy task on the Curves.)

Nothing indicates that it has ... and the most humidity has been in the air outside, I don't even take it near the stove when I'm cooking, let alone the bathroom. Some of the buttons work fine but the ones I seem to use the most have been getting more and more of a pain over the past week or so.

Mr Clark is right. Even if the indicator did not turn red, moisture most likely got in to the phone. A really humid day can do that, bringing the phone in to the bathoorm when taking a sgower will do that. Even holing your phone for a long period of time and having sweaty hands can do it. Trus me, ive seen it all
