Default 7100x keyboard problem

Please Login to Remove!

I bought new blackberry 7100x just to get feel about the phone before I get Pearl and I love it to bits.

After two days, though keyboard started playing up and the middle row of keys wouldn't do it's job. Instead of 'b' I would get 'zc' or instead of 'g' I would get 'ad' etc. So basically two keys to the left...

I suspect it's a faulty/sticky membrane under the keyboard but being new to blackberrys I don't really know.

If I was to open the phone, could anyone point me to some good guide about what type of screwdriver I need for 7100x and where all the screws are?

Thank you!

Tom

7130 Disassembly - BlackBerryFAQ

Basically same model body etc., as your 7100.

Good luck, and welcome to the Forums!

Thanks! It looks great... Apart from the step "Remove Speaker Grille"

Is that different on 7100? At least I can't see how to remove it... And if I can't remove it - is there only 2 screws?
