    Default Hardware key menu button issue

    Hello, I recently rooted on ff18 and I am running on the JB ROM by Codename ( fantastic BTW). When I was still stock the menu button kept coming up while I was texting and messing up the texts, also the keys would often freeze up and lag a bit. I thought putting a new ROM would help but I didn't. The codename JB rom has the option to disable certain hardware keys. I disabled the menu button, however the keys still freeze and lag out for several seconds at random. How can I fix this? Is it happening to anyone else?

    Try an fi27 stock rooted one click. If it still does it then hardware is the problem and you have to go to sprint.

    I have unrooted and now im on el29 stock. Now i just noticed that while i walk the keys are activated. So i started to shake the phone and it does it even more. I didnt put insurance on the phone, is there any way i can replace the keys? Or should i not bother and get another?

    The issue is not necessarily with the buttons, but with the entire screen. I've dug around a bit on this issue the past many months, and it appears this issue comes up more often than it should on Samsung devices. The best I can tell is this is a hardware issue involving the LCD screen, where the phone's radio interferes with the screen when it enters a low signal state and causes the menu button to fire. The only way I've heard to resolve the issue is to have the entire LCD screen replaced.

    Hmmm that sounds logical. I have a coworker that has the same issue. Thank you very much for that info. I will look into getting a new screen perhaps
