    Moto Q doing some very strange things

    When I press the left cursor button a q is typed. When I hit task manager, recent numbers dialed appears.

    It goes down two spaces instead of one in control panel when I hit the down cursor one time.

    It has stopped charging when the phone is off. the battery icon does not even appear just a black screen.

    I did a master reset. I tried other batteries.

    any ideas appreciated.

    sounds like a short in the keypad, if you did a master rest and it's still doing it, you may want to try cleaning the keyboard (or underneath if you're feeling adventurous)

    what would make the batteries not charge?

    the simplest explanation that I can think of (also happens to cover both) would be corrosion. Something (even moisture) could have cause the contacts for the keyboard and the charging circuit to corrode. but there are probably a number of other things that could have caused it
