Default Problem with Capacitive menu and back buttons

Hi, I'm new to this forum.
I have a Galaxy Y and from like a week the menu and back buttons (Capacitive touch) are acting weird. Sometimes they work fine but most of the time, they dont work at all.. Anyone facing similar problems? Any Suggestions? Help would be appreciated.

you shouldnt have brought it to the samsung center.

i think the back button problem in SGY is normal and i thinks its a firmware bug, mine was the same especially the first 3 days of my usage, i noticed that i needed to tap the back button twice or thrice for it to work but after updating its firmware, it works like a charm now

Try cleaning the portion of the buttons. Usually dirt lessens their sensitivity. Just try cleaning the part.

your phone will take some time to close some heavy apps that you use...so when you press the back button it may not respond immediately..

I personally think it's a memory issue. I say this because before I used to suffer with this same issue but since I have 'supercharged' my phone it hasn't happened once. I think changing screen protectors is just conincidence. Supercharge your phone using the script - it will seem like a new phone and I haven't noticed any loss in battery performance.
