Screen wont respond

My screen quit responding to touch. The phone still worked as did the keyboard until I tried a hard reset and now the screen is locked on a Windows Mobile start up which says "tap screen" which I cannot do. Any ideas how to fix this problem or to bypass the tap screen message?

Re: screen wont respond

I used to have this sort of issue with a Palm pilot. It is most likely that a piece of grit or dirt from your pocket has embedded itself between the touch screen and the housing. This can be fixed by pulling appart your phone however that will void any warranty that you have. If it is still under warranty, return it to the place of purchase and get them to fix it.

Hi, I am using HTC touch P3450 model.Suddenly touch screen is not responding.So I gave a hard reset for factory restore settings.After loading the OS its asking to TAP the screen,but my touch is not...

Your touch pad need to be replaced. I had the same problem and order a complete face lift which includes the touch pad from ebay. It was included aslo the special tools needed to remove the screws. There many videos showing how to desasemble the phone in youtube, just search with your model and you will find videos showing all the dtails how.
Please not that the problem is with touch pad which is the one you touch directly on it, is only vinil cover and is working as a keyboard. Under touch pad is located the lcd display of the phone which other part .

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.

Touch screen & key board with stick does not respond

try aligning the screen...
settings > screen > general > Align Screen

If that doesn't work try hard reset... i.e.

If its still not working do soft reset:
settings > system > Clear storage
but remember to take back up of phone before doing it will erase all your data...

and do tell me if it worked or not...
