Why do some of my letters not work on my keyboard

Welcome to the forums. Does the same problem persist if you rotate the phone and type on landscape mode? Have you already tried using a different keyboard?

Belatedly... I have the same problem on my old LG Nexus 4, Android 511. The problem for me is with letters X, D and to some extent with R (upper or lower case). Rotating the screen is a workaround, but some apps don't allow that, which is especially annoying when D etc is in a password. Mostly I can rely on the messaging app etc to suggest words but not when it's a password. Problem exists with any keyboard and so I assume there is some mapping area within Android that has been clobbered.
