    I have had my Instinct for about 6 weeks now and I am experiencing problems with the touch screen not responding when I go to answer a call (most of the time I end up missing the call due to this problem) What can be done about this?

  • chaderg Apr 04, 2009

    Does not respond to touch when trying to answer or hang up a call. Also when my alarm goes off and i slide the button to cancel the alarm still continues to sound. I have to shut the phone down and reboot to get it quiet.

I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM HAPPENING TO MY PHONE. IT SEEMS LIKE THE TOUCHSCREEN WORKS WHEN IT WANTS TO. I DON'T HAVE A PERMANENT SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM, HOWEVER I'VE FOUND THAT TAKING YOUR FINGERNAIL AND RUNNING IT ALONGSIDE THE EDGE OF THE TOUCHSCREEN WILL USUALLY GET IT TO WORK AGAIN, AS IF THE TOUCHSCREEN GETS PUSHED DOWN TO HARD ON THE SENSORS AND GETS STUCK SOMETIMES. **NOTE**--SOMETIMES YOU MAY HAVE TO RUN YOUR FINGERNAIL AROUND IT A FEW TIMES BEFORE IT FINALLY FREES IT. BUT SO FAR, I'VE BEEN ABLE TO GET IT BACK TO WORKING PROPERLY EVERYTIME I DO THAT.. HOPE THIS HELPS!!

    what that doesnt work and i really want my phone to work

  • KRIS87 Sep 29, 2010

    I know it doesn't sound like something that would actully work, I promise after playing with it a few times, trying that, I was able to get my touch screen to work again. that's been the best solution that I've found so far for that problem, although in some instances that will only be temporary fix, I've some phones will have that problem recurring from time to time

I have the same problem with my instinct since the touch screen is plastic and very thin i guess that it has broken conections somewhere you can buy a new screen of ebay for $13.00 as for turning your phone of to stop the alarm you can just touch the volume key to spot the sound and you can use your headset to answerthe phone as well as the voice recognition on the right side of the phone and tell the phone what number to call (You really should have read your manual) My phones screen is not responding at all but I still make and recive calls just fine.

I was having trouble with the touch screen ... if I typed 9 I got 8 texting was out of the question unless you had lots of time and lots of arrowing back.
I tried calibration, then decided to update software........phone fixed......I didn't know you had to manually do the updates in the settings

Is there A way that my samsung instinct can be repaired-i can not charge it.


I had that problem also happen recently. I bought another off ebay and had Sprint copy all my contacts over and it was then good as new.

But now that I bought an Evo, I'm looking to sell my Instinct. If you're interested, contact me through eBay and I'll sell you the good one with all the extra stuff I have too: wall/travel chargers, batteries, etc.

Samsung Instinct Screen isn't working correctly


It sounds like the Samsung Instinct digitizer is bad, not the LCD screen.

You can replace it yourself for about 15 dollars. Check out the link below for a guide to replace it and where to buy the Samsung m800 digitizer

Can you connect your internet from the samsung instinct phone to the ps3?


If you have a phone as modem plan sure you can, If you have the Instinct I am asuming that you are w/ Sprint. If so and you have unlimited data plan go buy a 3G to broadband wireless router. I suggest the Cradlepoint 350 or better, Best Buy sells them for about $100. It will convert your 3G signal and then your PS3 will be able to see the network, set it up with either no passcode or use the WPA/TKIP for encryption. It works fine, I have the HTC Touch Pro and it works perfectly, its easier if you have a Windows based phone though.

My sprint instinct touch is messing up the touch screen is not working I've took the battery out for 5 min and it's still isn't working. Any suggestions I would really appreciate it, thank you.


Sounds like you have a bad digitzer. This parts replaces the glass front of your Samsung SPH m800. This repair will get you back up and running. It will also make your phone look new since you won't have any scratches on your screen.

Contact me if you feel like you can't do the repair yourself.

Thanks!

Go to Main>Settings>General> Calibration, and recalibrate your screen, if this does not work, you have to have your phone replaced.

Have you tried removing the battery and waiting for a minute and replacing it in the phone.
The phone will reboot and possibly your screen will work again.

Samsung instinct esn problems


ESN that sprint needs is the ESN DEC, it is an 18 digit number above a bar code under your battery directly on your phone. This is not to be confused with the HEX, which starts with an "A"
