nokia c3 keypad

my nokia c3 keypad is not working, i may have got it wet, i don't know, but itll turn on, and if i've taken the battery out, itll let me set the date and time, but once i get passed that stage, itll just stay on the homescreen and buzzes when calls and txts come through but the keypad freezes. it'll let me also turn it off but other than that nothing. I dont know what to do? it seems weird the keypad will work for turning it on/off and numbers(date and time) until i get to the home screen....


any help? thanks

Re: nokia c3 keypad

since the buttons work to insert time/date then its a software problem . C3 is an s40 device and I don't know if there is a full reset method except from "reset factory settings" . There should be a way reseting by pressing some keys . because this is hard to find you should go to NCC for them to do the hard job .

Hi Sohaib_awan,


Have you updated your phone to the latest firmware available for your device? To do so, check for updates in either Nokia Suite or on your phone itself. Also try restoring the phone to factory settings after performing the update. If either of these still do not work, then it may be a hardware problem, and you will need to take your phone to your local Nokia Care point for them to investigate.
