I had the same problem, and it got fix partially after I dragged the stylus on the screen from up the top to the bottom. After that i've touched the four corners of the screen (where the screen is covered by the plastic case). After that i could enter the calibration screen and could touch the 1 2 3 4 buttons. I've done the operation 3 times, the first 2 times without doing the calibration after, and as you can imagine the problem came back after opening and closing the flip for a couple of times. After the calibration the problem did't returned.

SOURCE: 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.

What does calibrating a ipad mean


Whoever used the term "calibrating an iPad" may have been referring to touch screen calibration.

Some touch screens need to be adjusted, or "calibrated", or the device may act as if you touched a different spot on the screen than you did. The iPad screen does not need to be calibrated.
If the iPad make a mistake about what spot you touched, the error may be due to:
  • a defect or damage;
  • a screen protector;
  • a cold finger;
  • a hand that is holding the iPad and inadvertently touching the screen;
  • a finger that is inadvertently touching the screen.

My phone Sony Ericsson P990i touch screen is not working corectly


Hi,

As you said your touch screen doesn't works properly it means that you are able to work with the screen only the response of the touch screen is not so effective.Then you should not worry.You have just re calibrate the phone for more effectiveness.

The steps to recalibrate is quite simple
Go to control panel menu-Setup wizard
tap 'YES' before cancel appears.Do this until you see 1,2,3,4
numbers blinking...

Mostly this will solve the problem.Then you have to see the sensor or the Keypad IC fault.and replace it accordingly...


Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

re-calibrate your screen via the setup wizard. if that doesn't work, try installing upgrade software (os) if that doesn't work there is a hardware failure

P990i touch screen problem


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.
