Touch screen needs to be calibrated

I must touch to the left of whatever button I want so I am unable to use the touchscreen. For example I cannot enter the letter A when spelling a street name because the system thinks I am pushing B. Since the letter A is on the far left of the screen, I cannot choose it. To choose C I have to push B, etc. I tried resetting the system with the reset button and have read all the manuals but there is no troubleshooting for screen calibration. Any ideas?

Hi, You set the screen so its all the way down and hold down the dvd eject then the reset button for a few seconds, then let off of the reset button, keep the eject button held down for another few seconds. Then the screen will say press reset. instead using the joystick, press up,up,down,down then push it in at the center. It will come up with options. the first one is touch screen test. using the joystick click on that one and do the calibration test. You will then have to trace the outline of the screen, while you are on the right side of it, trace it short to make up for the buttons on the right side. when you finish push the joystick in. it will say "settings ok" then go down to the 4th one, i think, and it will say something like test calibration settings and go to that one. It should say that the settings were saved. After that shut the key off and turn it back on and it should be good to go.

IS THERE A WAY TO RESET OR RECALIBRATE THE TOUCH SCREEN. CURRENTLY IF I TOUCH THE LEFT SIDE OF THE SCREEN IT SEES ME TOUCHING THE CENTER OF THE SRCEEN. ALL CONTROLS ON THE LEFT SIDE ARE UNABLE TO BE...


Well you should have a calibration setting in the menu's. However if you can't use the touchscreen there should be another way to re-calibrate it. Here is the Owners Manual. http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/pio/pe/images/portal/cit_11221/212667155AVHP5700DVDOperationManual.pdf
Try the reset deatiled on Page 14, I'm sorry but other than that re-calibration is not detailed in the manual.

Was it working fine before it was de-installed

My touchscreen reads the next icon to the left of the one I am touching. Any ideas? As an example, I touch the icon for messaging an it goes to the next one to the left.


This means that you do not have your touch screen calibrated right. Please go through the "Touch Calibration" in "More" in the "Settings" section of the menu.

Do this until you are sure you got all them close to the middle of the items.
