Try A soft reset, open the back/battery cover and press on the reset button w/your stylus.

If it still is the same check to see if you have any programs that make 'modifications' to Windows Mobile, or Touch flo 3d, etc. As it might cause the problem. If you recently installed a program, try removing it. Of course you would have to do this through activesync or the vista equivilent.(Windows Mobile Device Center)

To do this in active sync go to Tools>Add/Remove Programs. Not sure about vista as i dont have it.

If you still can't fix it, do a hard reset, its in settings>clear storage, but i dont know how you would get to it.
Or use the hardware buttons, while the diamond is on, press/hold the power button, volume down (lower one) button, and ok/enter button, at the same time, with your stylus, press the reset button in the back. Yeah it sounds like im lying, but im not :P (Note some say you don't need to press the power button too, try a combination of the 2 if mine didnt work.

HARD RESET WILL REMOVE ALL YOUR DATA! So make sure you sync all your contacts to outlook on your PC through active sync, and make sure they're there. Your programs will be removed and will have to be reinstalled manually (other than the originally included software, like internet explorer, opera, office, etc). But if you installed through a setup file on your pc, which later makes activesync install it onto your diamond, you can reinstalled through active synce after a hard reset, by going to add/remove programs and checking the boxes for the software you want to reinstall.

    Forgot to tell you to keep holding down those buttons after you press the reset button. But you can let go of the reset button, just keep holding the rest until you get a message on your diamond saying to press 'whatever key' to reset to manufacturers settings, or other key to cancel.

Touchflo does not appear to be working on new Touch diamond


TouchFlo is an application that needs to run on top of Windows. It is quite well hidden in the menus....

To start with, I assume you get the normal Windows Mobile 'Today' screen? If not, you have bigger problems!

If so, hit "Start" --> Settings
Then on the 'Personal' tab, go to 'Today'
Then look at the 'Items' tab and make sure that TouchFLO 3D is the only checked item.
Hit 'OK' top right, then 'X' top right and you should get back to find it activated.

@deepak - TouchFLO 3D is standard on the HTC Diamond. If you have TouchFLO then I guess you have a HTC Touch (different phone).

Screen Calibration not working


well this is simple really if your willing to rusk it all, since the screen calibration problem happen to be as well. I simple put some warm water in the phone, be sure to take out your sim, SD card, and battery or else the items might get damage, be sure to remove the screw as well. If your phone has a warranty on it please take it to the store you have purchase and get a new one or have expert fix it.

Hint on pouring the water

1 lay the screen face down and have everything remove even the screw to prevent rust later in the future.
2 pour small amount of water in the battery area and let it run clear then pour so more
3 move your phone around to let the water move through parts of the phone
4 let it sit and dry for few days and put the items needed in for the phone to start

Major thing to remember remove the white sticker if haven't already to prevent it from turning pink which is a sign of telling the phone has been drop in water.

THIS IS NOT A BEST WAY TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM BUT IT WORKS ON FEW PHONE ALREADY ON OTHER SITES AS WELL.

I WILL NOT TAKE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF YOUR PHONE IF DAMAGE OCCURS, SO USED THIS AT YOUR OWN RUSK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How do you fix a frozen dash


It's actually a pretty easy fix, but it may take a few tries before you get it right. Start by taking out Sim card and battery, after a few seconds, but the battery back in. Then hold down the 2 softkeys (with the dash's on them) together and press down on the power button for about 2 seconds. Let the power button go but not the softkeys. You should get a black screen that will instruct you to hit the Green "Go" button to restore factory settings. Once you do this the phone will reset itself. It will restart very slowly, so be patient.

Samsung Blackjack display error


This is a fairly rare problem, but it does happen with the Blackjack and other Windows Mobile devices.

First thing to try is:

Start -> Settings -> Display -> Home Screen -> (your carrier) Default

If this option or no options are visible, attempt to move right or left a couple of times (if you are in the list mode, move up and down) and then hit 'OK'

If this does not work, you will need to do a factory restore on your device:

WARNING - Restoring the factory settings on your device may cause the loss of all of your data that is not stored on the memory card or backed up elsewhere. Please back up your data before doing a factory reset and remove your memory card during the procedure:

From within the Software:
1. Start -> Settings -> More -> SECURITY -> More -> Reset
2. Enter '0000' and hit 'OK'

From the Powered off state:
1. Power off the device
2. Hold down the 'UP' navigation arrow while pressing the power button.
3. You will be presented with a 'format' menu, hold

Good luck!

Contacts button and Start menu item not responding


Since "Contacts" on the start menu fails at the same time as the button, it is more like that there is a software problem, and the button cannot open the applet that is failing. If you want to ensure that you do not have a hardware problem, try remapping the button to open another application. You can do this by going to Settings/Buttons. You might want to try using the Task Switcher, which you can turn on in Settings/System. When you encounter the problem with Contacts, then click on the Task Switcher and see how many programs are open. Use the Taks Switcher to close all the programs, and then try Contacts again and see if it works. Most applications do not close, and if you have many open applications, then it will degrade performance.

Touch Screen Problems


You may want to use the Task Switcher that you can start by going to Settings/System. When you click on Task Switcher, you will see all of the open programs. If you have a large number of open programs then you may see a degredation in performance. You may also have a single application that is causing problems. If a soft reset cures the problem, then it is not a hardware problem.
