    touching points in the middle only reacts to the botton buttons.

    Effort to calibrate seems fruitless as point is almost 2 inched away from the calibration points.

    The touch part on the right sight of the screen is bended from the corners like a parabol. Calibrate in setup is not useful as it only calibrates the corners, which are still ok. What else can ben done?

    Recalibration wizard does not work as I cannot click on calibration points as the offset seems to be about 1 inch. Anyone got any ideas, or does it meean a new screen ?

    after doing the setup wizard thing and the 1,2,3 and 4 dots, the screen is still off. I cannot tap on the scroll bar on the right side, all it does is to select the menus.

I encountered the same problem but was able to fix it. Just don't know if it's just temporary. Go to tools, control panel, other, set up wizard, tap yes, tap the second button before cancel, keep on clicking to the right direction until the numbers 1, 2, 3 and 4 appears. Tap the center of each number until blinking stops, save settings. For the first few steps you may use the jog dial found on the left side of the phone if the touch screen does not follow your tappings.

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.

Always get the latest firmware to avoid problem.

Always keep the screen clean!

P990i touch screen not possible to calibrate

First, upgrade the software of the phone. After the upgrade, the setup wizard appears; complete it, and start it again from "Control panel", "Other", "setup wizard": now, just press the next button until 1 2 3 4 appears in the screen: don't select anything else, just the next button, or the calibration screen would not appear.

Calibrate touch screen

Actually, the red cross's movement is part of the calibration. Continue clicking each individual red cross until you get a confirmation notion notice.

In order to calibrate the touch screen, the DS needs to know where certain areas of the touch screen are relative to the actual display. Basically, you're not really controlling the display. You are interacting with a hidden interface, which is the touch screen. But in order for you to "interact" with what you are seeing, the touch screen is laid across the display.

Pen writes in one spot, but image shows up 1/2 below.....

1. To calibrate the ENTouch 1000 power off the device.

2. Prior to restoring power touch the pen to the center of the screen and do not move it.

3. Power on the device. Leave pen in center of the screen and do not move it. If you move it the device will not enter calibration mode.

4. Allow device to boot. If you held the pen in place the EnTouch 1000 will enter calibration mode.

5. Follow the on screen instructions. Be very methodical and do not try to rush it...
