Hi devanshu-

I have a smiliar problem but only because I was a bit of a twit and dropped my iPhone on the cement and thus, breaking the screen. So now part of my screen wont accept the touch.

If you did not drop your iphone, there are some other possible reasons:

  1. If you have more than one finger touching at one time (unless doing that cool little double finger zoom in), the touchpad will not respond. I have caught myself doing this on accident if I am holding it so my thumb is touching part of the screen as I am trying to make a call or write a text.
  2. The touch sensor is malfunctioning. Sure, this could be a software problem (which is why I am including the directions for the dreaded restore below), but the iPhones touch sensor seems to be a bit sketchy in both the 2gs and 3gs. Since you just bought it, it should be under manufacturer warranty for a year. Go to cingular's website (used to work for cingular/at&t and know that if you go to the store, the procedure is to you to call the 888 number with a smile and do nothing else), get the warranty/customer service number and get them to replace it.
The only bad side to either resetting or replacing your phone is that you will lose your contacts. But, if you choose to try this route (which, in the worst case scenerio, will put you in no worse of a position than you already are with a phone you cant use), I will provide some instructions:

  1. Turn off iPhone - Hold down the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the red slider. Ignore this step if your iPhone is already off.
  2. Press and hold down the Home button for about 10 seconds until a yellow triangle with a text which says Please Connect to iTunes appears. iphone touchpad not working - iphone-recovery-mode.jpg
  3. Plug the iPhone into Mac or Windows PC. Release the button if you haven’t.
  4. Run and open iTunes if it’s not already opened yet.
  5. iTunes will prompt a message that says iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. Click OK.
  6. You will be taken to the iPhone pane. Then, click on Restore.
  7. Wait for the full restoration process to complete, and the iPhone will be back to the original settings state as when it left the manufacturing factory, typically a working phone again if you face any problem, unless it’s hardware related.

Hope this helps!!

Gateway NV53A 15.6 inch Notebook, touch pad not working

Touchpad settings: right click on the touchpad icon on the Taskbar at the bottom right of the screen. Click on Default button, then Apply, then OK. Re-try. If that doesn't fix, then TouchPad ribbon inside the laptop needs to be replaced.

Touch pad not working

It's a driver related issue or the touchpad is locked. Unlock it.
Each computer has it's own way on how to unlock the touchpad. Please provide me with the model of your computer so that I can provide you with the correct steps.
You can also scan your computer with RadarSync so that you will know if the drivers are out-of-date especially the touchpad driver. Your touchpad stops working if the driver is out-of-date so you might want to check RadarSync.

The bottom part of my iPhone touchpad is not responding to touch

The touch on the screen works as a seperate component from the screen itself. Either the lower portion is damaged and has to be replaced, or it is wet and can't sence touch as a result. The one may get better in time if the components don't corrode, the other is probably not resolvable...

My iphone wont slide to unlock, I dont know what to do??

First try to reset the setting. If resetting wont work, then your touchpad is faulty.
Another way is to press the power button to go into standby mode. and turn it up again. see if the touch is responding.
Else, reset the entire setting, just like formatting it and restoring to the previous version.
If all fails, then you're doom. you'll need a new touchscreen.

Do note that Iphone comes with LCD and touchpad. these are two diff things.
You might need to replace it.

This exact problem happened to me! I tried all the things, restoring, etc. I finally gave up and brought it to the Genius bar at Apple's store. He looked at it, said, "let me try to restore it." and after that clearly didn't work, he replaced my iPhone for free!

Hope you get the same I did.
