My phone Sony Ericsson P990i touch screen is not working corectly


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:-)

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.

Touch screen is not working properly.To open application i have to click 2 inches above the application icon.

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.
