Question about Palm TX Handheld

Touch screen not responding

Touch screen has been losing calibration over past month now has stopped working completley. Can't input or extract data without using nav keys. Started when fell out of top pocket onto car floor, not a hard fall but wondered if the touchscreen had a plug inside or something that could have started to come lose. Product is 1 1/2 years old and has been cared for like a baby. Really annoyed if it is broken as expected long term use by quality manufacturer. This should not be the case on this item would appreciate any help available.

    Problem started when I lost calibration slowly over time with the stylus. I tried to recalibrate it, and the TX locked up. I am password protected to access the data in the TX and entering the pasword number can only be accomplished with the stylus. So, I can't get into the TX at all. I've tried hard reset with no success.

I have a tx and have heard of this problem happening. Try hotsyncing to make a backup, then copy your folder so you backup is in a safe place. Then do a hard reset to put it back to factory default. Charge it fully and then run the digitizer again. The reason I suggest these steps is sometimes bad applications can muck with the screen sensitivity. If that doesn't work it may be a hardware problem. Hope it's still under warranty.

My touch screen stopped working on my samsung impression so i put the rest code in and the phone reset then its now stuck on the calibration screen and the touch screen wont respond


Dont kno if "Impression" is similar to "Omnia" but 'REMOTE SCREEN ALIGNMENT' program installed on PC skips 'align screen' on your phone. Also "welcome.not" (made in notepad) & pasted into your root files. A REGISTRY EDITOR will allow you to input the touchscreen configuration numbers manually. Of course, none of these will be much good if you dont have 'Windows" phone or cant access your Registry!!

If all this fails, ASK 'XDA DEVELOPERS', or 'MoDaCo'.

Touch screen on my garmin nuvi 205 stopped responding


If the touch screen is not working properly, calibrate the touch screen.

Turn Nuvi off and then back on.

Slide power key to the right (lock). Hold your finger on the screen for about 30 seconds until the calibration screen appears.

Follow the directions on screen instructions

Touch screen quit working, where I press and what pops up are two completley different things...


You need to calibrate the screen. if that doesn't work then the screen would need to be replaced. or just the digitizer part on top of it.

Well watch this video and after you follow the directions get the screen and find the glass like cover and remove it from the screen bend it in a very lightly way, then put it back on and put the PDA back together and BAM.

IPaq won 't respond to screen calibration.


So far no fixes. It's just been collecting dust. I think it's a screen response issue, and will probably cost more to fix than to replace (at least for me) in my situation. I'm thinking iPhone....

Megellan Roadmate 700, touch screen not working, if it works takes too long!


Mthomas, Although I can't think of any quick fix, if you have a cd of the software version that you've installed then try re-installing that. if nothing else, access the secret " " menu and reset user data, you'd be amazed at how much that can fix at times. At user menu (after reset) press "-" and repeat key at the same time. select "reset user data". If you can get it to the touch screen calibration test, then it could respond. (eventhough it's not working otherwise) Good Luck, DanEz007
