Welcome to the forum ;)

This is a known fault of the phone so you need to send it back for a replacement.

Give Orange CS a ring to sort it out.

I had this problem, I had to return my phone to HTC and get it repaired. Orange care may do it if you have Orange insurance.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

I took my phone apart for a number of reasons, and it didnt' seem to do any justice, a simple fix is to just tap the 4 key again ;) That's what I do on the very rare occasion that it happens to me.

I don't think it's limited to the Number 4 keypad. My No.3 acts up every now and then. I just press it and it goes back to normal.

Does anyone know if this is a hardware issue or a software concern?

Had a similar problem when I first had my e200, one phonecall to orange CS and a replacement was sorted (I dont have orange care or owt, but the phone was only a month or 2 old, so think they replaced it because of that), then the same thing happened again, and it was replaced again.

I had similar problem with ener key. You must replace smd capacitor on key-board after you disasemble the phone. It is a smal cap actually 4 cap in same case, 4x1nF, also called filtar cap for keyboard. I use 2 pieses 2x1nF from old Nokia board. It is wery hard to replace them without proper tools, you can try. Work fine

Not neccessarily - over time the metal push discs can loose their 'springiness' underneath the button push - these can easily be replaced by stripping the phone, peeling back the sticky platic on the keypad board and swopping the disc contact out with another from a suitable donor phone.

If the phone button pushes and click normally it could be water / corrosion in between the disc and contact, or the post above describes.

I had the exact same problem to.. I got the phone to Orange Care but they said that the phone had been water damaged.. Then i just wanted to scrap the phone but after i had pressed the button for about a million times it began working again.. And now it has worked for over a ½ year without problems.. :?:

I've had the same problem with my E200 with the back button. It's SO annoying because I always forget about it when writing a text and when I mistype a letter and press back, it will delete the whole message. :evil: The only way to delete a letter is by pressing back and then quickly pressing a direction on the joystick to cancel it. For this reason I don;t think it's a hardware problem.

I've recently upgraded to a M500 but I didn't want to pay the £20 excess before upgrading. I want to sell the phone now so is there any way to fix this (even if it means taking the phone apart!)......or does anybody want to buy a E200 in otherwise good condition. ;)
