    Thumbs up BlackBerry Bold problem - space bar driving me mental!!


     
    sorry

    if already covered but cant find it.... my 9700 is playing up. running OS6 .536 I think it is. Every time I hit the space bar Im getting a double space which invariably means a full stop. Its making the device unusable! I presume this is a hardware issue? common fault? can it be fixed?


    Help! title=Frown

    You are hitting the space bar too fast or holding in space to long* which will create the period. IIRC it is integrated into the system like that and just will have to try and get used to it.

    The membrane for the space bar is probably worn/sticking. Either warranty the phone or take it apart and replace the membrane/keypad.

    This is most likely the correct response.

    Lol* I read it wrong* my mistake.


    If that is the case* warranty the phone. Taking apart the phone will void the warranty* so I would just warranty* unless out of that stage. Then have at it or use your insurance.


    Good lUck.

    if the phone is still under warranty* exchange it. if its out of warranty* there are at least 4 or 5 recent threads regarding changing the PCB membrane. i just had to do this again last night on my 9700* as the one i put on there a few months ago was still double/triple typing letters. it takes 10 minutes* a speady hand* and like $20 worth of parts and tools.
