HTC Desire :: On Screen Keyboard Sometimes Stops Working
Sep 13, 2010
Whenever possible I always use the landscape keyboard but have noticed that sometimes in messages (and web browser) that if I spot a mistake and use the trackpad or touch the screen to go back and correct whatever I type on the keyboard will not appear in the text. The keyboard still responds as you can see the popups for the keys when you press them but the text doe not go into the box. The only way I found to cure this is to close and reopen the keyboard and everything then starts working. I am running the recent OTA firmware update on a completely unrooted unbranded Desire.
I got my son a Karbonn A30 yesterday, and so far, the auto rotation as well as acceleration stopped working twice. I tried formatting cache but it did not work. the only workaroud is to open the phone, remove battery and restart again. I could not get any solution except the battery removal one.
Almost every day when I wake up I check my phone and 9 times out of 10 the touch screen does not work. I cannot make a call or check anything. I have to push a lot of buttons and take out the battery and generally wait a while before my expensive phone to start to work. Is there a fix for this? I've already had to go to sprit to do a hard reset because the phone got, "kicked off the network" for some reason the sprint people could not explain. Any solution for the screen issue?
I have two constant issues on my Epic-I've been ignoring them for a month but there must be a fix & I could really use your help! Also it would be good to hear from others who are seeing the same things so I know I am not completely insane...
1 - My screen brightness seems to adjust up on its own... To increase battery life I have it set all the way down...but, for example, as I was typing this post the brightness increased on its own... Any ideas?
2 - My voice recognition stops working all the time...not with one app either... Resetting my profile seems to fix it for about 5 minutes but it doesn't take long for it to go TU again
But now whenever I'm taking a call the touch screen stops working, so the only way for me to hang up is to take the battery out.Has anyone else had the same problem and is their anything I can do to fix this?
Just installed froyo on my T-Mobile Desire, and have been using flash to watch iplayer stuff. The problem is, if you want to listen to iplayer radio it stops playing when the screen is turned off, or if you switch to a different window. This is obviously to stop flash playing when its not used, but is there a way to maybe add Safe websites, or just turn that function off completely.
Ok I'm not overly techy on this Android stuff but I've just done a system software update to software number 2.09.405.8 and after the update the HTC_IME mod keyboard was constantly going into force close so I unchecked to use the standard keyboard than checked to use the HTC_IME mod again and its having no effect just using the standard keyboard now don't seem to be able to get HTC_IME mod back.
I have a evo that i had since launch day at 6am in the morning. Done all the updates and am unrooted. Today all of a sudden i can not go into market then i notice i can not do anything with Internet. But my 3g has 3 bars. Did a battery pull still nothing turned mobile network on and off still does not work. Any suggestions?
I've setup email on my hero in the mail app. It works fine for a couple of days and then suddenly it just stops working. I've tried it with a yahoo account and a gmail account in the mail app and both do the same thing. Using the gmail account I have set it up so its using exchange server. It works fine for a couple of days, it pushes email to my hero fine but then after a couple of days it will stop working. Even if i click the refresh icon it wont retrieve my email. I have to delete the account and set it up again to get it working again.Why is this happening? Obviously the settings are correct otherwise it wouldn't work for the first couple of days and then stop. Help really appreciated as this is the only issue i am having with the phone now.
Ever since the latest OTA update, the 3G on my Eris just stops working when I wake it up. The 3G icon at the top tool bar disappears even though the Mobile Widget I have on one of my screens says that it's on. So what I have to do is toggle the Mobile Widget to turn 3G off then on again. But oh wait, sometimes the Mobile Widget doesn't even respond so I have to go to settings and turn off then on the 3G. This is really annoying and this happens with my aunt's Droid Eris too. Any ideas on what my aunt and I should do?
Has anyone else noticed that on the Galaxy S, the Wifi will stop to respond after a few disconnects? I usually have wifi off to save battery, but now and then some application will turn it on and after I stop it (either using the message bar or settings) the wifi stops working. Under settings it will be greyed out and say something like "Shutting down..." but you cannot click it again, turn it on or anything else. A reboot works but thats kind of annoying.
I'm using Eclipse and the Android SDK for Linux. When I start my emulator at the beginning of the day it works fine. Later in the day it's sluggish and still later it won't start at all. This computer runs Debian linux, the testing branch, with 1Gig memory and a two 1.6 Ghz processors. On another machine I have, the emulator works the same at the beginning and end of the day.
It has 500M ram and a single 1.6 Ghz processor. As it turns out I cannot use the second machine for all my daily tasks. How can I get the first machine to work? Is it the number of processors? I cannot figure out how to disable a processor in the emulator. I was looking at the '-qemu' options, but none seems to do the trick. I don't understand the qemu options that well.
LG Nexus 5. For the 2nd time in a month my Swiftkey (paid version) has stopped working. Grrr. The only way I could get it working again was uninstall and reinstall. Nothing else worked. I sent a support request to Swiftkey on this (no response yet). Any way to prevent it?
I have Huawei u8600 sonic rooted and with Cyanogen 9 ROM for this phone. Everything is working fine, but I noticed that sometimes my phone just doesn't find SD card. After reboot it works fine again for a while, but after an hour or two it happens again. There is no message about SD card being removed or something, it just disappears. I have most of my apps moved to SD card, so this really annoys me, because without SD card I can't use most of my phone's programs.
Since a few month my WiFi does not work properly. When I activate it, it automatically connects to the access point. But after 3 minutes, the connection stops working. The WiFi symbol in the status bar disappears and 3g starts working. When i disable and reenable wifi everything works fine again for 3 minutes. I already tried a static IP. Other devices (laptop) have no problems with the same network.
Cannot clear text typed on the Contacts (People) screen 'All' tab.I went to the contacts (People) screen, to the All tab.Without selecting any contact, I held down the Menu button. This brought up the keyboard. I thought this could be another way to search the contacts so I started typing.The Text appeared in a grey box over the keyboard. When I pressed the enter key on the keyboard nothing happened. The backspace key also does *not* erase any of the letters I've entered.When I pressed the keyboard away key, the keyboard disappears but the text in the grey box remains floating over my contacts list. I can tap on contacts underneath it but not interact with the box itself.If I hold down the menu key again, I get the keyboard back and can add more letters to the box but not remove any!If I go to one of the other tabs (Groups, Online directories, Call History) the box is hidden but it returns when I go back to the All tab.
My pop3 e-mail (not exchange) stops working about once every 1-2 days. It looks for mail, but doesn't return any results, even though there is mail in the account.I have to delete the account and start over to get it to work
This morning my camera and video camera would open and then immediately close down. I shut the phone down and rebooted. Camera still did not open. Next, I shutdown the phone and removed the battery. After a few moments, I reinstalled the battery and rebooted. The camera still would not open. I had to do other work, so I just set the phone aside for a few hours. When I came back, I tried the camera again and after a short pause it opened, but not as smoothly as in the past. It is still not opening as it should. First it displays a very quick view of the desktop with an error message. It goes too fast for me to read and then it opens the camera app.
I just got the 1.6 download and found out my ADC2 app is not working anymore. Works fine on 1.5 but people with 1.6 can't log in. Guess that explains the sudden drop in new accounts being created (We got around 70 testers before numbers plummeted to 5 to 6 over the weekend). :( If Google planned to release 1.6 in the middle of a contest, they should have informed developers and given them the tools to test their app on this platform. We spent months on creating a high quality app for this contest and now people can't even judge it! There are probably hundreds of other developers that spent sleepless nights working their butt off to finish before the deadline just to have their chances decimated by google. All I can say is that I'm extremely disappointed in the way Google has handled this entire contest and I think it is extremely unfair and inconsiderate the way they are treating developers that they are supposed to be attracting to the Android platform.
Updated my Wife's Droid-x last night to Froyo. The camera app took a while to work again but eventually stopped crashing. But we cant get NO LOCK to work again. It works on my Droid-x however I uninstalled it and reinstalled but no dice.
I have an application which starts a service. The service has a timer and pops a notification every 30 seconds. I notice the following behavior: if the screen is on the notifications are shown ok (even if the app is in background). if the screen is off (by power button or by itself) the notifications won't show. if the screen is off but I have the debugging running the notifications appear. How can I make the service run with the screen off. (The actual app only checks if a notification should be checked every 30 seconds, but for testing purposes, the above scenario is ok)
Let me preface I love this app and am not really complaining, just have something that has come up. Anyone else experience it dropping the internet connection or wifi after about an hour? It works great up to that point and doesn't show an error or anything but it just stops communicating. I have to stop tethering and start tethering and its back up again. Its not a huge issue, just something that I would resolve if I could. It was happening on pre9 but I upgraded to pre13 and it still happens. Im on Myns RLS3 with Netarchy 4191bfs kernel but it was doing it on the stock HTC #10 kernel that came with Myns.
I downloaded an application named Todderlock so my children could just meddle around with my phone while they sat in my lap. However, the sound stops working after a non-specific amount of "dings" when either tapping the shapes around the screen, or when dragging your finger along the screen to make the same type of noise, but much more rapidly.
Thinking this was an application problem, I had my wife download Todderlock on her HTC Hero, and the sound works without issue.
So, I shrugged that off and went looking for other neat applications to download...I downloaded Bug Squash I, II and III and they all suffer from the same problem: after squishing X amount of bugs, the SFX stop (the music continues however), and I have to restart the application to enjoy the sound for as long as it lasts.
I was getting suspicious, so I loaded up Robo Defense FREE and the same thing happens when the turrets are firing...after X amount of shots fired, all sound ceases to work.
I have not been able to find a similar problem with the HTC Evo on Google or here on the Android forums, considering my wife's Hero works without issue on all the sound issues I am having.
As far as I know, phone notifications and ringers continue to work after the application has "disabled" the sound. I have not reset the phone to factory settings or anything, but I have restarted the phone itself numerous times, and the problem still persists.
