Menu Key not working

[ Edited ]

My menu key is not working on the phone. If i press the end key on the odd occasion while its in the menu it will bring up a mini menu or side bar which the menu key should do.

 

Just wondered if anyone has had that problem? or if they know a way to cure it?

 

Please please any help would be appriciated

 

Thank you

 

Rob

Re: Menu Key not working

Hello,

I think you can try the hard reboot. Don't worry, you can't lose data
1) your Blackberry device is on
2) remove the battery and wait for a minute
3) Put the battery back
4) wait 5 minutes for the device to wake up.


Please tell us if it works for you.

Re: Menu Key not working

do I understand correctly?

  • the menu key clicks but does not work at all
  • the escape key clicks, but instead of doing "escape" it acts like the Menu key should act.

The menu key clicks but does not work at all.

 

Its the End key that clicks, ends the programme but then it acts like the Menu key should act.

Re: Menu Key not working

My BB/Menu button packed in today. Does anyone know how to fix it? I'm pretty sure it's SW related.

Hi and Welcome to the Forums!

 

"packed in"...can you clarify? Do you mean it clicks but does nothing? Or does not click at all?

 

If the former, do a batt-pull reboot. With power ON, remove the back cover and pull out the battery. Wait about a minute then replace the battery and cover. Power up and wait patiently through the long reboot -- ~5 minutes. See if things have returned to good operation. Like all computing devices, this one suffers from memory leaks and such...with a hard reboot being the best cure. Some have taken to doing this on a recurring basis as a preventive measure.

 

If the latter, then it's a hardware issue...take it in to your point of purchase for warranty evaluation.

 

Cheers!

Re: Menu Key not working

I'm interested in this minute thing. Does that really trigger a longer reboot than 10 seconds with the battery out? Not when I tried.

 

(packed in : not working. No click. No menu. Nothing.)
