IP Phone 8941 buttons stop working

We have had an issue on several phones where the buttons stop working for no apparent reason.  The phone can recieve calls just fine, but you can't place calls as none of the buttons work.  Rebooting/resetting the phone does not help.  I was wondering if this was any known issues and if there was a fix for it?

We are running the following:

SCCP8941_8945.9-3-1-19                  

System version: 9.0.1.10000-37

Any help is apprecriated,

Thanks!

The only thing I can think of which you can change on the Phone is firmware...

IP Phone 8941 buttons stop working

Hi there,

I wanted to add this note to the good info from Tappan (+5)

This bug references SIP firmware, but I might try the workaround

just to be sure;

CSCuc65387            Bug Details

8945 Keypad Locks up
Symptom:
8945 SIP: Keypad locks up

Conditions:
SIP 9.3(1)
To reproduce the issue and get the phone into the error state:

1.       Pickup handset when phone is idle, then the predictive dial Menu will show up
2.       Press the down direction key, to move the focus to the Menu's first item
3.       Press any one or more digit keys
4.       Hangup the handset, the phone will go back to idle
5.       If the user picks up the handset again, the digit key should not work because the focus is not on the input field

Workaround:
To recover the phone from the error state:

1.       Pickup handset when phone idle, then the predicative dial Menu will show up
2.       Press up direction key up repeatedly, to make sure that the focus moves to the input field
3.       Press any digit key
4.       Then hangup the handset, the phone should return to idle and the phone will be back to normal

Thanks Rob,

The user said it's intermittant, he's also a CCX user so that could be related as well.  I asked him to try the posted work around next time the issue occurs.  I'll update this discussion if it does.

Thanks for the suggestion!
