Thanks, for quick replay!

I just need to connect my keypad to work properly smiley I have already identified my keypad cols and rows pins, but I don't know, where to put resistors while connecting keypad to my arduino. I want to connect each pin of the rows and each pin of the columns to arduino. So, where I have to connect resistors?

There http://www.arduino.cc/playground/Main/KeypadTutorial it is said, that I will need resistors 2k to 10k, on each of the row pins. So, how to do this? this resistors should be between wire whitch is coming from keypad to arduino or that resistors should be on ground pin?

If you could post a data sheet or link to where you bought your keypad, we might be able to kelp more. 

Is it similar to this one?

It is necessary to connect keypad to +5V? As I seen in many videos in youtube there is no wire from +5V to keypad

Probably not.

Most routines supply the voltage from the Arduino and read on a separate pin. Look at the tutorials again.

YouTube would be very low on my list of electronic circuit design authority.

Ok You owe me a new keyboard. Send a new one and I will send you the one with the mouthful of sugared coffee.
