IPhone Touchscreen Partial Hypersensitivity

The bottom left corner of my iPhone screen is extremely hypersensitive.  When typing a text, I can't select an individual letter; if my finger even hovers over (not even close to touching the screen) the left side of the keyboard i get multiple letter selections (something like ''awwwaaasar'' instead of ''e'').  This is making any typing next to impossible.  I have already tried a reset (holding down power and menu keys) to no avail. Any other solutions?

Have you fitted a screen protector, as this could be causing inadvertant screen touches. If not try a reset. Hold down the power key at the same time as the round home key until
phone powers down. Release buttons only when you see the apple logo,
then wait a min or two for phone to re-boot. You will not lose any data on the phone.

If this does not work, try an actual system reset. Sync iPhone to computer to back
up essential data ie contacts apps etc, then go to settings general and reset. Reset
all settings as a last resort. This will give you a fresh start and should sort out
the majority of any bugs the phone has. A resync with you computer will restore apps etc.

Hope this helps and if so please vote.

Thanks

What does Chuck suffer from?


It is always hard to diagnose someone simply from behaviors but Chuck most likely suffers from a form of OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder). In Chuck's case the obsession is that electromagnetic fields are making him sick and hurting him. This leads to compulsions and compulsive behavior: avoiding anything electromagnetic, asking other people to "ground themselves" before coming in, etc. He has some characteristics of agoraphobia but these are more side effects of the main compulsion. Like a more traditional "germaphobe" Chuck has some scientific theories to support his obsession and compulsion. Chuck believes he suffers from electromagnetic hypersensitivity. However, since electromagnetic hypersensitivity doesn't appear to really exist, and would probably be a life-long condition, it is unlikely that he actually has it. There are some rare individuals who have sensitive personal electromagnetic fields and can physically feel it when lightning strikes miles away from them (but close enough) or even when the sun lets off an extremely powerful solar flare. But these people are like this their entire lives and don't spontaneously develop them late in life. And while they report that it can make them feel very uncomfortable during a thunderstorm it doesn't make them sick. Spoilers below: In the later half of season 1 Chuck voluntarily begins doing what is called "exposure therapy" where a person with OCD exposes themselves to whatever it is they fear and try to get their brain used to the idea that it is harmless. Much like a person who is afraid of snakes might be able to overcome the fear by looking at pictures of them, being around them, and eventually even holding or touching one. A germaphobe might try to resist the urge to wash their hands after touching something that is scientifically clean but not "clean" in their mind. Chuck does it by going outside for longer periods of time and getting closer to strong sources of electromagnetism. And while in the hospital it is demonstrated that Chuck's fears are in his mind and that he's not actually physically harmed by electronics.

How do you delete messages from iphone 5c


1. To delete an entire text message conversation thread, open Messages.

2. If you were in a conversation when you last used the app, you'll return to that. In that case, tap Messages in the top right corner to go to list of conversations.
If you weren't already in a conversation, you'll see the list of all your conversations.

3. Find the conversation you want to delete. You have two options: Swipe right to left across it, or you can also tap the Edit button at top left of the screen and then tap the circle at the left of each conversation you want to delete.

4. If you swiped across the conversation, a Delete button appears at the right.
If you used the Edit button, a Delete button appears at the bottom right corner of the screen after you select at least 1 conversation.

5. Tap either button to delete the entire conversation.
Again, the Cancel button can save you from deleting anything if you didn't mean to reveal the Delete button.

If you're using iOS 10, there's an even faster method. tap the conversation to enter it. Then tap and hold a message, and then tap More in the pop up. In the top left corner, tap Delete All.
In the pop-up menu at the bottom of the screen, tap Delete Conversation.

Sony VAio touchscreen hypersensitivity


Step 1:
Touch screen monitors are both input and output device as they receive and display information from one peripheral device the monitor screen without the use of mouse or keyboard. They are used in a variety of different applications such as point of sale (POS), cash registers, ATM machines, among others. Touch screen monitors are very sensitive so proper cleaning and maintenance is of utmost importance to maximize its performance and prolong its life. Follow these cleaning steps:

Turn off both the computer and touch screen. This way, you can see everything that needs to be cleaned. Some touch screen applications has a cleaning mode which turns off the screen for the specific purpose of cleaning. However, the monitor's brightness can make you miss some areas. Wet a soft, lint-free or microfiber cloth with distilled water. Wring out as much water as you can. Make sure the cloth is damp but not wet. Wipe the screen in a gentle motion to remove dust, oil, or fingerprint smudges off. Another option is to use a screen cleaner kit that includes antistatic wipes. You can buy this at various electronic or online stores. Spray a little solution on a wipe then rub it gently across the screen. Finish cleaning the touch screen with a dry lint-free cloth to wipe any excess moisture, then turn it back on.

Pictures have a hypersensitivity to yellow. Parts


This is typically caused when taking pictures indoors with artificial lighting (ie. not the sun). This is because of the different color temperature of the light versus sunlight. The camera can somewhat automatically adjust for this, but most cameras (including professional cameras) do not meter indoor lighting perfectly.

Often setting your white balance manually on the camer to Florescent or Incandecent depending on the light source will yield perfect or near perfect results. Some other light sources such as CFLs and LEDs have different light temperatures and you will need to manually adjust the light temperature. For instructions on doing this refer to pages 84 and 85 of the user manual. It is available here, if needed:
