Normally the keypad membrane is very dirty from years of use but most of the time it is still working, sometimes some of the plastic parts are stuck on the keypad membrance, try to press all the keys on the membrance and clean all the plastic pegs which is connected the keypad membrane.

Normally this works and you do not have to spend $125 for a service call anymore doing this DIY maintenance easy fix.

This takes about 15 minutes of your time in order to save $125 service call.
