  2. Volume down key not working properly

    Not sure what the issue is but I'm guessing that depending on your device and how much "space" there is around your volume rocker, possibly some dust (lint??) got stuck in it. I would try blowing around the rocker with air to see if it makes a difference.

    The only other option is to perform a hard reset and setup the device again. If it works then something had an effect on it. If it does not, then your device is defective and should be sent in for repair/replacement.

    Dust on camera lens of 6210 navigator

    Lately I've noticed that the pictures that I take with my phone aren't as good as they used to be. When I took a close look at the camera lens, I noticed that there appeared to be dust on the lens. Does anyone know how to remove the lens for cleaning, or
    is there another way of removing the dust?

  5. The phrase Whiskey Tango Foxtrot comes to mind. In all seriousness, we really need some kind of detail or explanation with this question.

    Desktop it works well and easily, as long as you hold the can nozzle end up.

    Laptop is problematic, depending on the laptop.

    The oftener the better I guess.*Smile

  12. That's the type of information that would have been very helpful in your first post.

    Honestly, it screams gimmick. I could be wrong, but I don't see how a software app is going to somehow convince the hardware to remove dust from itself.

    I suspect if just runs the fan on max speed for a period of time. Not very effective. I would use the dust removal option presented in post #5 a couple times a year (depending on environment).
