Question about HTC G1

Touch screen doesn't work and the screen itself blacks out sometimes

I called Tmobile several times on this issue that I'm having. They helped me fixed the touch screen part by having me take out the battery and hold the power button down for 21 secs. It works but the problem comes back and now my screen goes blank every now and then. I only had this phone for a day. If this can't be fixed, I still have time to return it. Anyone experience this problem and is it fixable?

Your mobile touch screen may has one of two problems only:1- A problem in the mobile firmware(and this means that you have to re install the firmware of your mobile)
2- A problem in the mobile touch screen Hardware(and that means you have to change the touch screen itself of your mobile)
First,do the first solution ,then ..if it does'nt work ..that means you must do the second solution.

Hello, I got my LG Rumor Touch about 2 months ago, and I am having trouble with my touch calibration. There are many things wrong with the touch screen, and two examples are when i touch the numbers to...


It is hoped you bought this new because there is an issue with the digitizer(the glass plate that sits on top of your lcd screen and recognizes when you touch the screen). I've worked on tablets and phones for several years now and, unless you bought it new and with a warranty then your next step is to take it to a reputable phone repair service and have them replace the digitizer. If you hold the phone up flat and you can see ANY kind of separation between the LCD and the digitizer, then it will NOT function properly.

Sometimes you have to replace both the digitizer and the lcd as they are one piece.

Hope this helps.

hi friend,
  • Issue – Bottom half of iPhone touch screen does not work.
    Solution - Standard troubleshooting steps in order are power the iPhone off and on, Reset, Restore from backup, Restore as a new iPhone or not from backup and if no change after any or all, call Apple Care – (800) 694-7466 or make an appointment at an Apple Store to have this checked if there is one nearby.
  • Issue - iPhone “touch screen” dead.
    Solution - Connect your phone to iTunes and do a full restore, it will replace all information on your phone prior to your last syn. If it doesn’t help call Apple Care – (800) 694-7466.
  • Issue - The top half of my iPhone screen is not working at all
    Solution - If restore doesn’t work – you could schedule online an appointment with a genius at an Apple store

  • Issue – My screen cracked. How much would it cost to get it replaced?

Hope one of the solution helps…

HTC Touch Pro LCD Going black and then sometimes working


is there the "calendar" and "contacts" menu buttons on the bottom of the black screen?

that's what would happen to me. i just turned off the touchFLO 3D on the today screen (by going to settings, then today screen options) and it seems to not go black anymore... even after being untouched for hours.

not sure if the same thing is happening to you, but it worked for me.
