Re: R60 Volume up button not working

if the down is working and the up is not working or vice versa, it means the button is faulty. There is nothing you can really do about it, other than to replace the keyboard, which is not really worth it, if other buttons are working.

Re: R60 Volume up button not working

Since you are in India it is hard to say (as there is tariff for oversea imports), but check on ebay for pricing.

I don't think losing the sound control is that big of a problem. Since your keyboard keys are still functioning.

Re: R60 Volume up button not working

Lenovo says: "Could not locate the requested document." Any thoughts? I am suffering a failure - the qwer keys & vol up & win key all failed at once after codec install!
