Re: alt lock

I pressed alt and then press right shift key, but the cap lock is not turned on, even though the cap lock icon is on the screen. May I know why?

You can try few resolution steps for this...


First try hard reset. if it doesnt work then take the back up of the device and after that wipe your handset and fina;;y it doesnt work then need to re-install the operation system.
