I had a similar same problem. It occured when pluging or unpluging in the USB cable into the bottom of the Palm TX when the other end of the cable was already pluged into a live USB port on my PC.
The solution was to make sure the cable is unpluged first from your PC before you plug or unplug the cable into the bottom of your Palm TX.

Sprint/utc 6700 - touchscreen won't work


My suggestion if you have Sprint, go to their corporate store. They charged me $35 for a new phone. I did not have their $7 a month warrenty... but I do now. The only thing they will not do is replace the phone if it was in water.

Palm TX power button and touchscreen


We have three TX's in our family with non-working power buttons. I downloaded the program Au Dodo http://www.freewarepalm.com/utilities/audodo.shtml and simply now use the far left button (button 1) as my 'power' button. It works wonderfully.

I haven't found out how to fix the calibration problem, but power on/off has been totally fixed. Good luck for you.

Touchscreen not responding


Hello Cutie,

I would try a master reset it will be your best option, just make sure that you try backing up any informaton to a pc or laptop, or install the motorola phone tools program in a computer and Sync your phone to the pc and then transfer all your numbers, pics and videos or documents u may have stored in there then perform the master reset. Of course if u are having touch screen failure then all this might be a problem. If none of this works for u then you are in trouble because if im not mistaken Motorola has no service repair department, maybe if u call them they may be able to exchange under manufacturers warranty if its under a year.

Good luck..

Screen problem


Sometimes 3rd party apps that don't work so well with the palms can freeze them up.

You could do a hard reset and when you initially sync the palm, when it asks you for a profile choose a new one and see if this method removes your problem.

Does the calibrator keep looping or not seem to work?
If you can access the calibrator, but it loops through the target sequence (repeatedly asking you to tap the targets), there may be a physical problem that's causing your touchscreen to be confused:
  • Do you use an adhesive screen protector? A screen protector which is trapped under the screen edge may interfere with touchscreen calibration. Occasionally, just having the screen protector on the screen can cause the issue. Try removing the screen protector.
  • You may have debris trapped under the edge of the screen. Use the corner of a piece of thin, stiff paper (copier paper works well) to very gently slide all around the edge of the screen. Don't let the corner of the paper travel more than an eighth of an inch under the screen edge frame. By doing this, you may be able to dislodge small particles of debris trapped under the frame.
  • A heavy impact or scrape to the touchscreen can cause permanent damage. If your touchscreen is damaged, you may need a repair

Touch Screen does not work at all


My touchscreen was acting batty, not responding where I was touching. The solution for me was to:
1. remove my screen protector
2. Take a piece of paper, fold it in half, and scoop under the lip the case where it holds the touchscreen in to fish out debris that were distorting how the digitizer recorded.

Touch screen


You may have dust accumulation around the edges of your touchscreen, between the screen and the case. Try using a can of compressed air. Gently press down on the edges of the touchscreen to expose the gap between the screen and the case, and shoot the air in there. This worked for me when my Treo 600 touchscreen stopped responding.
