Menu button only works when slider is opened.
So I just bought a Droid 2 second hand off craigslist on Thursday. The phone works flawlessly except for one quirk: The touch sensitive menu button only seems to work if I have the keyboard slid out. Even then I seem to have to tap it in a very specific location to get it to work. If I can't get it to work right away, sometimes wildly swiping my finger back and forth across it will trigger it, other times it just won't work at all. The weird part is, you think it wouldn't matter whether the phone was in the standard position, or the keyboard was open, but no matter what, I can not get the button to work unless it is open. The 3 other buttons work without a problem.
I've searched the forums, and didn't find anything on this issue, google only brought up issues that were only kind of similar.
I've tried a factory reset with no results, and the fact that this is usually only an issue when I don't have the keyboard out makes me think it might not be a hardware issue.
Any ideas? You think I'm just gonna have to buy another digitizer? If I take this to the verizon store, will they help me at all? I think not because it was purchases second hand.
I love the phone, it's my first Android based product, but this problem is getting more and more frustrating as I get to know the phone more.
