If any of the keys are stuck in the down position, it will lock out the entire keyboard so that none of the keys will work.
One think you can try, is turn the typewriter upside down, and hit the bottom of the unit (right above the keyboard). See if there anything that falls out besided dust. Also hit ALL of the keys. Each and every one of them just to make sure non of them are stuck down.
Try this a couple of times, and see if it helps any.
Good luck.

Don't know how to set key pad lock

Before locking the keypad first remember if the keypad lock is assigned with a security code.
Default value of the security code is normally 0000.

1. To lock the keypad first press the option key, then select the LOCK KEYPAD.
2. To unlock the keypad press the option key then press the "C" button.

You can check more lock/unlock optoons in the users manual, downloadable from this link. Read page 63 and on.

I locked my only key in my car. I just recently got it and do not know the unlock code. Isn't there a factory unlock code I could use?

I don't know if they have a code, but the dealer can make you a key you just have to show your registration.

My key fob will unlock all my doors but my driver side door. Any suggestions?

if you can lock and unlock all the doors except the d-side and you can manually unlock and lock it with the key and the switch on the d-side door will not lock or unlock it then it is most likely the d-side door lock actuator and the only way that on most models you can get this part is by buying the door lock assembly...........this is a common problem on all makes and models........let me know if this was helpful and what you found out............good luck and if i can you in any other way let me know........
