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.

Re: Touch screen not responding

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.

Its saying calibration problem on the screen

When the Reader device is started for the first time or is reset back to factory settings, the screen must be calibrated. The Reader device will display a calibration screen that requires you to touch the stylus to the center of an "X" at several points on the screen. This is to make sure the touch screen properly recognizes input.
The process requires you to touch the "X" in the following locations on the screen:
  • Top left
  • Bottom right
  • Top right
  • Center
If the screen is accidentally touched someplace other than the center of the "X" during calibration, the Reader device will display a message stating Calibration error detected. Please restart calibration process .
If this happens, please start again in the top left corner and touch the stylus to the center of each "X" as it is displayed, being careful not to touch any other part of the screen. After the sequence is completed the Reader device will display Touch Panel calibration completed . Click OK to continue to the next step in the setup process.

Screen not responding to any touch

After cleaning my screen from my kids sticky fingers and having it outside in the cold .. around zero my screen stopped working. The screen displayed okay but the calibration was so far off I could use it. I played with it for a while until I got it to work again.. First I recharged it. Then tried to just do a shut down which didn't work cause you have to hit the yes on the screen. Then I tried the reset button, then tried the reset and holding the power button then plugged it in the usb port. Did a shut down, it reassessed life and started working again. Better than when I bought it.. from Kijiji.

I have a Palm TX. 3Years old. 6 Months ago had to calibrate Touchscreen every day. 2 months ago had to calibrate touch screen 2/3 times a day. Recently can't calibrate touch screen. Targets go into loop...

Same happened to my 3 month old TX. I just recharged it, and all was OK! Sounds strange at first, but in my hometown, it is very humid, so maybe it got some moist inside and that caused some variations in the power or battery or voltage... dunno, maybe you need some cleaning, or try to calibrate while plugged.

Hope to be useful!

Cant get out of screen alignment program

OK, Now anyone watching this forum can hear the truth. Well start with how to get out of the designator, however this will make the screen out of alignment by about 2mm. tap on the corner targets until you get to the center one. Try tapping off to the side top or bottom of the target further and further away until the program exits.
To fix the problem first try using the corner of a piece of paper and run it along underneath the plastic covering the edges of the touch screen. Use as much force as you can without creasing the paper. Do NOT press down on the touch screen!
Other than that the reason why you can't tap on the center of the last target is either a marked or damaged screen. Look at your screen carefully and identify any smears, marks or fingerprints. Clean these using a soft cleaning solution (such as for camera lenses etc.) and try the designator again. If this does not work look for scratches. If these are found in the area of the target then sorry, but you can never designate your PDA again.

Touch Screen does not work at all

My touchscreen was acting batty, not responding where I was touching. The solution for me was to:
1. remove my screen protector
2. Take a piece of paper, fold it in half, and scoop under the lip the case where it holds the touchscreen in to fish out debris that were distorting how the digitizer recorded.

Touchscreen no longer works

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....
