Default Problem: Stickingkeys

Please Login to Remove!

I swear my holster is where blackberries go to die. i have been through so many of them for various problems that rogers probably thinks I'm a blackberry hypochondriac.

My latest problem is that some of my keys have lost their tactile response- the light clicking sensation that they give when they are pressed. Now it's as if itis partially pressed already and it takes just a light brush to actuate the key.

It is drving me crazy. I am thinking that opening up the unit and giving it a cleaning should work- i've only had this unit for a month so there shouldn't be too much buildup but it's used a lot so it's possible there some built up pocket lint or a grain of salt from being too close to a plate at lunch. who knows. I just don't want to swap it out again becauise I am tired of changing my pin!

Any experience with this problem? Any advice? I know many have doneit for one reason or another. I thinkI might try it tonight.
