Re: password

OK you have not come back on this. Let's expand on your post.

 

Your other (deleted) thread said you appeared to be keying in 2 characters in the password field for each touch og the keyboard. Let's assume it was the entry password to open Playbook which cannot be displayed. That would suggest a malfunction of the keyboard.

 

Remedy:

Assuming you know the correct password, connect Playbook to desktop Software and perform a backup. If you are asked for the password you will be using your computer to enter it so the problem will not persist.

 

You then have two options.

1. Having backed up, you could perform a Debrick  (see many posts).

Or

2. Try to open up Playbook itself and simply key in the wrong password in ten times and Playbook will perform an automatic security wipe.

 

A new version of the OS will then be onstalled and 90% certainty of fixing the keyboard problem.
