Our touch sensitive lamp no longer responds to touch

My touch-sensitive beside lamp no longer responds to touch. I have changed the lightbulb and it still does not respond. I have resorted to turning the bulb tight to turn on the light and then I have to put something on my hands to loosen the hot bulb in order to turn out the light.
Do the sensors wear out? How do you make it respond again?

The sensors do not wear out as such, the fault probably is in the electronics and you should not attempt a repair unless you are suitably qualified as mains voltages are involved.

We're is the LCD located in my phone


One of the iPhone's greatest features is its highly intuitive touch screen.
Unlike other electronic device touch screens, your iPhone doesn't operate using the blockage of light to decipher which keys and commands you're pressing.
This makes it a viable choice for cell phone users who may not be able to complete other types of commands.
While you cannot alter the sensitivity of your iPhone, you can toggle certain features that make your phone easier to use.
How It Works

The key to understanding the sensitivity level of your iPhone's touch screen is first understanding how the touch screen actually works.
Instead of detecting light blockages or heat to interpret your finger's movements, the iPhone actually has a grid that lies underneath the surface of the touch screen.
When your finger touches the screen, electrical impulses detect the area on the grid that you're touching to interpret the letter, command or motion you're making to issue the correct response.
Screen Sensitivity
While previous models of the iPhone did offer the ability to change the screen sensitivity and the speed by which your phone responds to commands, the iPhones 4 and 4S no longer offer the option.
Instead, the touch sensitivity on newer phones is automatically calibrated for the fastest speeds, which means your phone responds quickly to your touch.
If this frustrates you and results in commands and calls you didn't mean to make, locking the screen by pressing the button on the top right-hand rim of the phone helps stop unwanted commands.
Assistive Touch
Update iPhones running on iOS 5 with an option known as "AssistiveTouch," which allows users who may not have complete control over their bodies and motions to use the iPhone.
This program allows you to change the speed at which the phone responds to your touch.
By tapping the "General" icon, then touching "Accessibility" and "AssistiveTouch," you'll enter the assistive touch menu.
When you turn on the option, an overlay appears on the screen that allows you to give commands by touch, rather than by shaking, swiping or pinching the screen.

When setting up AssistiveTouch, you'll have the opportunity to select your command tracking speed, which deals with how sensitive your iPhone is to your various gestures and custom commands.
Case Issues
Your touch screen isn't the only place where your phone is sensitive to movements.
Your iPhone has a feature called a proximity sensor.
The role of the proximity sensor is to sense the closeness of your face during a phone call. When the phone senses that your face is close to the phone, it locks your screen to prevent you from accidentally activating the touch screen with your cheek or ear.
This is handy, except when the proximity sensor is partially obscured by a case and is no longer sensitive to the position of your face.
The proximity sensor is found on the upper right-hand corner of your screen, so ensure that it remains uncovered to preserve its sensitivity.

I NEED TO CHANGE THE LIGHTBULB IN THE HEADLIGHT AT THE FRONT. HOW DO I CHANGE IT?


You don't say which model you're dealing with, but most late model Toyota headlamps are simple to change. Raise the hood and look directly behind the lamp housing. There are two sets of wires on each side which connect directly to the lamps. Lift the retainer (lock) on the lamp that is burned out, and push straight down on the wiring to disconnect the lamp. The lamp will then twist counterclockwise slightly and you can pull it out of the housing. Reverse the procedure to install, but be careful not to touch the glass bulb directly with your hands, as oil from your skin will shorten the bulb life.

How to adjust sensitivity on ELO Touch Screen monitors


you probably have a capacitive screen, it only responds to finger press. You need a resistive screen to be able to respond to finger, nail, or pen press.
