Re: Touch Screen Damaged

To some degree you can use the control buttons on the device but you will be limited to what you can do. I suspect you will find the device impractical to use without the stylus.

Touchscreen not working properly

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

Htc touch, touch screen not working

The touchscreen is a thinlike mylar sheet that overlays the screen. Once damaged, all you can do it get it replaced. To verify if the touchscreen is "smashed", try using the thumbwheel or up and down buttons. If you can move around the display, then this means the touchscreen is damaged but will not prevent you from using your device, that is, until you turn it in for repair/replacement.

My MC70 work symbol wont respond to my touch screen pen

Does it respond to keyboard entry? If not, check to see if the "lock" icon on the screen is in the locked position. It's real easy to accidentially lock the device. If it is, just click on the lock and confirm that you want to unlock.

The next few can be a problem if the screen is not responding, so you'll need to figure out the keyboard equivalent:

You may also want to check the system settings. I believe there is a setting that will enable you to "turn off" the touch screen function.

Finally, try a touchscreen alignment in the system settings.

Jasjam touchscreen not responding

Touch scre4ens are actually two screens, the visual surface and the touch surface. On can be damaged and the other function normally. Unless it is a driver issue, I'd say the touch screen is probably dead.

Samsung F700V shortcut display problems

Hm, this is a difficult one. I have a F700 and there is no option for it to auto lock on slide closure. U might have a different firmware so look around the settings for it. Disable it if you can find it.

This might also sound stupid but make sure the lock key on the right hand side has been slid up. Slid down locks touchscreen.

My f700 does NOT launch the camera upon pressing the camera button at home screen. It does nothing if i do that. I need to goto into the menu and then the camera for the camera button to work and to take pictures. I think this was a smart move for Samsung to design it like this. I could see myself accidently pressing that many times.

Cracked touchscreen

There is no need to replace the whloe lcdscreen, you just need to replace the touch screen & panel which is a thin glasstop on the top of the lcdscreen. The whole lcdscreen is expensive, while a touch panel is much cheaper than that. And we could provide all kinds of PDA accessories. Here are some information for you In general, PDA LCD screen comprises the touch screen. LCD screen acts as a display of PDA or SmartPhone, and the likes, which cannot go without LCD screen. Touch screen is short for touch screen digitizer which seizes the upper part of PDA LCD screen. It is pressure-tactile, runs with gentle touch of stylus, finger and other tele-pointing function-possessed device. Different from LCD screen, the touch screen is an optional component for PDA, SmartPhone, and the likes. A PDA can function well even without the assembling of a touch screen for the availability of keyboard.

Touch screen

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.

Touchscreen doesnt respond

Hi Your touch screen is part of your LCD and it was connected together thru a small thin cable and it is fragile. When this cable is bad or lost contact , your touch screen is disabled. Only way is to open the case and replace. The method to replace it was tricky. If you make a mistake, you can damage your LCD or scratch it. Please visit these sites for some information: 1) 2) (Store sell Touch Screen) 3) I hope these information will help you to find the solution for your MDA. Actually, I am repaired all phones and PDA too. If yo need for my help, you can email me at I am writing a lot instruction of how to repair or replace the housing and LCD/touchscreen or can be called digitizer. Good Luck. Regards, Joseph
