I have just re-activate my palm after 2 years and I missed the part about calibrating the screen.When I touch the screen with the stick, it doesn't work unless I am a bit offset of the icon/button.I know there is a calibrating mode with small targets to be touched but I cant find how to go to this application, even when I reset the palm.ThanksFred

the screen needs calibration. below are the instruction on how to calibrate the screen.
The Digitizer Preferences screen opens the digitizer calibration screen. This is the same screen that appears when you start your handheld for the first time.
You can recalibrate your screen after a hard reset or if your digitizer drifts. You may need to repeat this process a few times until the calibration registers.
To calibrate your handheld screen:
1. From the General Preferences list, select Digitizer.
2. Tap the targets as indicated on the screen as precisely as possible.
You can also press Left, Right, Up, and Down on the navigator to highlight a Preferences screen name and then press Select on the navigator to open that Preferences screen.
did you try calibrating the screen.if it doesn't work when you try to calibrate it then it looks like the touch screen is bad and you will have to replace it.even if the touch is bad the video should still come through.go to pref= use the directional keys to to the top. you should see a blue rectangle are the date and time.click the center button and go to touch screen to calibrate it.if it won't let you touch it then the screen is bad. if you have any more questions please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
have you tried using the built in calibration function on your phone? calibrate it again and again untill you can touch each point just once. if this doesnt work you may have damaged that part of the digitizer and you will have to replace the screen.
you need to recalibrate the touch screen ..
touch the "Home" button a few times until you get "system" in the top right corner .. then select "Welcome" .. that will let you calibrate the touch screen and set the clock/calendar ..
Palm one is in trouble because of problems like this. They don't work on it but you can buy parts to try it yourself. I never had the problem myself but similar conditions. I do windows based units now.
Same happened to my 3 month old TX. I just recharged it, and all was OK! Sounds strange at first, but in my hometown, it is very humid, so maybe it got some moist inside and that caused some variations in the power or battery or voltage... dunno, maybe you need some cleaning, or try to calibrate while plugged.
Does the calibrator keep looping or not seem to work?
If you can access the calibrator, but it loops through the target
sequence (repeatedly asking you to tap the targets), there may be a
physical problem that's causing your touchscreen to be confused:
Do you use an adhesive screen protector? A screen protector which
is trapped under the screen edge may interfere with touchscreen
calibration. Occasionally, just having the screen protector on the
screen can cause the issue. Try removing the screen protector.
You may have debris trapped under the edge of the screen. Use
the corner of a piece of thin, stiff paper (copier paper works well) to
very gently slide all around the edge of the screen. Don't let the
corner of the paper travel more than an eighth of an inch under the
screen edge frame. By doing this, you may be able to dislodge small
particles of debris trapped under the frame.
A heavy impact or scrape to the touchscreen can cause permanent damage. If your touchscreen is damaged, you may need a repair
My touchscreen was acting batty, not responding where I was touching. The solution for me was to: 1. remove my screen protector 2. Take a piece of paper, fold it in half, and scoop under the lip the case where it holds the touchscreen in to fish out debris that were distorting how the digitizer recorded.
Well watch this video and after you follow the directions get the screen and find the glass like cover and remove it from the screen bend it in a very lightly way, then put it back on and put the PDA back together and BAM.
