Every time I charge my phone, the touchscreen stops working. I will try and touch something at the top and it will click on something down at the bottom. Also, when i try to move it to the other screen it will get stuck shaking. And, the icons will sometimes go on, like i had selected them to go into the trash.
My workaround is to charge with a different power source, or stop charging. i think it's the power source. for me, the touchscreen goes crazy when i'm charging via usb with this old computer, but it's fine when i stop charging. it's probably an unclean power source messing with the capacitance sensor.

Go to applications - preferences - touchscreen. Follow the instructions to calibrate your touchscreen. If it does not work, reset your phone by pressing the small button at the small hole at the back of the phone with a safety pin.
If it got wet it might still be wet from the inside and that is why your touch screen wont work, You would need to open it and clean it from inside. Or it could have a bad digitizer and that is a second reason why the touch screen wouldnt work. You can try doing a hard reset if you says it just shows a triangle on the screen.
Turn the G1 off. If it’s frozen on, take the battery out and put it back in the unit.Hold the Home and Power keys down at same time for about 25 seconds. You will see a yellow triangle screen with exclamation point in the middle Now to wipe the device clean: Press Alt+L. Press Alt+W for a factory reset. Press the Home and Back keys again for about 25 seconds. The device should then reset again and the hard reset is complete.
I agree. I'm on my 2nd G1 right now because my first one had touch screen problems. But the problems only started after I started using a different charger (it's been so long I can't remember whether it was just my blackberry mini usb charger, or whether I charged it from my computer; I think it was the computer). However, once it started spazing out it wouldn't stop, it was permanently damaged. So if your touch screen seems a bit finiky after charging with an odd power source, Stop ASAP or you risk permanent damage
Hello so i have a G1 the screen stopped working. I cant accesess my contacts. I cant make a call. This is pissing me off please help me! This phone is really nice and straight just random problems popping up which really sucks!
There is no way to bypass the touchscreen step of the setup process. I repair phones, including the T-Mobile G1. I can replace the screen for you if you would like for $60. Please email me at IGcomputerservices@gmail.com for more information.
Had a similar problem on my HTC (same maker of the g1) touch diamond, the charge light/indicator would stay on even after i took the cable out.
It could be just lag. Try doing a soft reset, where ever the reset button is on the G1 (Inside the back case?) If that doesn't help do a hard reset which deletes all data/settings (other than your carriers settings, your phone will still work), you would have to look in your manual, as I dont have a G1.
I found a solution for the LG KU990 Viewty touchscreen not responding problem. After thinking about twisting my phone, I came up with another solution which actually works every time. The touchscreen works via layers of plastic that when contact is made, a signal is triggered from the coordinates of the contact. However, when the phone has pressure, these layers of plastic stick together somehow. So, to fix it.... Get a small strip of adhesive tape that will not leave a sticky residue on your screen. Apply that tape in several spots on the surface of the screen, and lift it away from the phone with light pressure. Repeat this in several areas of the screen. That's it. You're done. Your screen should function properly. Simply recalibrate the touchscreen at this point in your settings menu. I hope it helps everyone with any type of touchscreen. I know it helped me. The touchscreen phones are totally useless using only the hard keys!
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.
