Touch screen does not work

The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Touch screen function is not working

Well I have to admit this is a common problem with these silly type of touch screens, mobile phones get the same too, and it is mostly due to the touch pads drying out from heat, the old XDA Mobile phones had the same thing happen, the older my phone got the harder I had to press it.
Try cleaning the touch screen with a damp cloth, just tap water moist on cloth, then rub off with another dry soft cloth, but do not press too hard ok?
