    Original Droid Acting Oddly

    A few days ago my original Droid started exhibiting some strange behavior:

    • Screensaver pattern password is gone can can't be re-instated.
    • Holding the power button now gives me only the option to "Power Off" where I used to have a larger menu with airplane mode, silent mode, ect.
    • My Home and Search buttons no longer do anything, but seem to be working mechanically as the phone vibrates when they are pressed. Also the Home button works when I'm on a phone call, but not from any other app/function.
    • Camera button doesn't bring up the camera, but the camera works fine when brought up via menu.
    • Back and Menu buttons still work everywhere.

    Adroid Version 2.2.3 (Nov 2011)
    Build FRK76

    My initial thought was it was some new software update, but I've had 2.2.3 forever, so could some other OS/Market update have caused this?
    I've done no new App updates at all (all manual) during the past few days, and in fact the only change I made when this happened was I switched the background to some Live Wallpaper.

    I tried wiping the cache partition without any luck. I've never rooted the phone but am technical enough I'm sure I could if needed.

    Thanks

    Welcome to the forum!
    Live wallpapers from the Play Store have been known to cause all sorts of problems. Was this a stock live wallpaper or one you recently downloaded? Have you tried removing the live wallpaper, then rebooting your phone to see if that fixes anything?

    Stock live wallpaper, nothing I've downloaded recently. I've tried Clearing Data for 'Live Wallpaper Picker' 'Magic Smoke Wallpapers' 'Music Visualization Wallpaper' though none had options to uninstall and are all version 2.2.3 making me think they came with the Android v 2.2.3. No changes so far.
