Hardware Keyboard - Characters repeat

Recently, I have noticed that I get a lot of multiple characters per key press using the hardware keyboard. For example, if I press the "b", I get "bbb". It happens with any number of keys, not just 1 or 2.

xv6800, MR1. MS3 with MSkips stuff.

Any ideas?

Re: Hardware Keyboard - Characters repeat

Same problem here. Started a month ago. Lots of apps loaded ...been dropped a few times as well. I'm going to hard reset prior to taking it in for replacement.

Re: Hardware Keyboard - Characters repeat

I also started to experience problems with my keyboard producing double characters while typing out a message and it started about a month ago...as a matter of fact I was talking to someone about it yesterday and was thinking of Hard Resetting my Mogul...until I came across this fix today...hopefully it will resolve the issue.

Does anyone know what exactly this fix does to fix the problem?


Thanks,

Shaolin77

Re: Hardware Keyboard - Characters repeat

i did a quick search and people say that it installs a new keyboard driver. im not exactly sure what that means but this fix basically omits the extra key presses, it really does work great

have you installed it and has it worked for you?

Re: Hardware Keyboard - Characters repeat

keyboard fix wont work unless its a software issue whereas most of ours are hardware related. I just had VZW send me another 68 and it was BNIB dated 5-18-09 BTW. I mean it is spanking brand new.

Re: Hardware Keyboard - Characters repeat

Yes the keyboard fix does resolve some issues with texting, however lets just be honest with ourselves. Although HTC does make decent phones, the keyboards on their phones suck big time. They use the same crappy flat button keyboards on nearly all their models, and you must either be female or have small fingers in order to use it properly.

Re: Hardware Keyboard - Characters repeat

When I had the titan, the keyboard fix worked very well and prevented double letters, but I found it particularly hard to press the letters after I installed it. It would sometimes skip the letters that normally would double up when I was typing fast, which became very annoying. I swapped my mogul for a new one and the issue was gone.
