    Question My buttons have switched directions.

    The center directional movement buttons between the call and end call buttons on my PPC6600 have switched directions when using them.

    Up moves the cursor right
    Down goes left
    Right goes up
    Left goes down

    How do I get this back to normal?

    Sounds like a hardware problem.

    Backup
    Hard reset
    See if the problem is still there
    Restore
    See if the problem is still there

    It sounds an awful lot like your buttons think they're in landscape mode. You might try switching into and out of landscape before a hard reset. It's not terribly likely to work, but if it does you'll avoid a lot of hassle.

    It reset itself somehow. That was very odd. Thanks for the advice.

    I just had a similar issue - all the d-pad buttons were bringing up Contacts (!).

    A hard reset did not fix, but after the hard reset, I pulled the battery for 5 minutes (which triggered another hard reset) and that did fix it.

    Restored from backup and was good to go.

    I've had buttons flake out on me before on thsi device - and spontaneously fix themselves, so...

    I've had this happen before too. Your phone display is in portrait mode but your controls are in landscape. Not sure how it gets mixed up like that but it happens.

    Just pop into landscape mode, then go back to portrait and that should clear it up.
