Question about HP Pavilion tx1000z Notebook

2 Answers

Calibration of touch Screen is off - Can't re-calibrate.

I have an HP Pavilion tx1000 (specifically 1308nr) that I bought from Best Buy. Recently the calibration of the pen became off by about 2 inches from where I touch the screen. My pen is not the electric type, it is only a pen-shaped piece of plastic. When I have tried to re-calibrate it the 2nd cross-hairs never register, the computer just beeps when I tap it (no matter the screen orientation). Although, when I first turn on my computer the calibration is perfect when I am on the screen wherein you type in your password.
I really appreciate your help!

Thank you,

Drew

    Thanks. I called HP and they wanted me to pay $300 to send my notebook in for them to fix it. I knew it was a better way. Thanks again.

I had the same problem, also on a HP Pavilion tx1000.
I solved it by using the driveres from eeti.
Now the pen works great and I'm a happy camper. :)

Calibrate the touch screen
The command buttons and fields are displayed on the screen image at specific pixel points. To initiate a response, the touch screen interface needs to recognize exactly where a fingertip or pen touches the screen relative to the pixel position of the display. Each user has a slightly different hand-eye coordination response. Calibrating the touch screen allows the interface to compensate between where the program is expecting a touch and where the touch actually occurs. To calibrate the touch screen, place the tablet notebook in the desired orientation and do the following actions.
  1. Click or tap Start > Control Panel > Tablet PC Settings to open the Table PC Settings window.
  2. On the General tab, select the option to display the menus in either the Right-handed or Left-handed position.
  3. On the General tab, select the desired screen orientation from the drop-down menu, and click or tap Calibrate . Follow the instruction to touch the screen at the specified points. Repeat this calibration action for all four of the screen orientations, then click or tap Apply .
  4. On the Handwriting Recognition tab, select the Use the handwriting personalization option.
  5. At a later time, you can return to review the Go to Pen and Input Devices and Go to Input Panel Settings options to make using the touch screen to control programs and input text easier and more accurate.

Hp pavilion tx2510, screen has been replaced with the correct touch capable model. Touch screen non responsive but displays everything just fine, touch pad works normally. Is there a way to determine if...


Hi,

To resolve this issue, if the exact part is has been changed for the touchscreen.
Then y6u need to update the latest BIOS first and then install the wacom digitizer drivers for the same.

After installing the digitizer driver please do the touch screen calibration

Please find the below links to update the BIOS, digitizer drivers.


WinFlash for HP Notebook System BIOS (for Notebooks with AMD Processors) - Microsoft Windows Vista-Based.

Please refer manual for calibration of pen and screen.
Please refer page no.3 and onwards.

HP TX1000, WILL NOT POWER ON (NOT BLANK SCREEN)


Have you checked your power supply to make sure that it's putting out the proper volts and amps, or if it's shorting out in the wire or possibly internally. I've run across a few where that was the problem; which had similar symptoms to your tablet\touch screen. If the power adapter is bad, then you might as well buy a replacement off of ebay. HP will likely want an arm and a leg for one of theirs. I like HP laptops, but I have to admit that I've been pretty disappointed with them as far as being "long lasting". HP has had some serious issues with their laptops over the last few years.

HP tx1000 touchscreen won't work


These TX1000's have their fair share of issues, and this one is the most costly (potentially) to resolve.

There are two, and only two, possibilities for why the digitizer in the LCD isnt working.

1) On many occasions, I'd estimate about 40% of the time, there's a little cable inside the LCD housing and behind the LCD itself that connects to a daughter-board, which then is cabled to the mainboard. This little cable sometimes comes loose, and a simple reconnect will resolve the stylus pen issues.

2) The digitizer in the LCD has failed, no separate LCD+digitizer purchase, oh no no no....Gotta get the whole damn assembly. Part# 441106-001 at roughly $550 exchange from HP.

Help with my hp tx1000 please


Mine has already twice made the same thing. Solution was simple - got the touchscreen changed (luckily under warranty). As third problem required change of the motherboard, I'm planning to get rid of the piece of junk alltogether. I think it is a solution for all the troubles with tx1000.

Touch screen stopped working


Hi Everyone

I have the solution to the touch screen problem. You need to get the support and strip down document for yout touch screen from HP.. for instance the one for the tx1000 series is c00853874.pdf

you will need another machine or to print the pages required to strip your machine all the way down to removing the monitor, and the surround on the screen.

the document is step by step...label the screw etc, you'll be fine...even if you have never done it before.

the result is the terrible build quality of the machines. the ribbon access cables for the webcam, and for the touch screen are poorly installed.

I found that my touchs screen access cable was not actually properly installed at all, and was only barely contacting when i received the machine.

my touch screen is working properly, you need to be gently with everything, the circuit board that the webcam and the touch screen connect to is directly behind the screen..

you must strip the screen down, and then lift the glass... there are 4 screws around the edges of the glass when you have it stripped down... once you lift the screen up.. there is a circuit board on the rear of the top of the plastic screen back. the are connectors going into this...for the quick access buttons around the screen edges...the webcam,.. and the touchscreen.

i have to say i just discussed this with a guy called GINO on Hp online support...and he doesnt care that this is the solution...or that there has been a manufacturing fault since day on.. they never plugged the cables in properly.

email me if you get stuck...
