Faulty keypad buttons ~ possible missing chip?

[ Edited ]

Got a BB 9780 and the buttons 0 and space don't seem to work even with a new replacement keypad.


When I was fitting the new keypad I checked over the cirrcuit board around the white membrane for any problems and noticed what could be the problem.


As you can see from the image this is the part I an sure there might be a missing capicatior but can't find any reference image to see what should be in there.


This one I am fixing seems to have 2 small capicators in there with the bottom one empty.

Just hoping someone can check their working one or know how many should be in there.


Would be very grateful, thank you.
