Touch Screen does not work

I cleaned my iPAQ with a limited amount of glass cleaner, I did not see any excess liquid anywhere. Since then my machine will turn on, but the touch screen does not work, I have tried a complete reset, but this does not solve the problem either.

When did you do this? is it days long? try using low heat settings on a hair blow dryer. If there is no VISIBLE excess liquid there it may have damaged the sensors on your screen while you were cleaning it. Hope this helps.

Can I get the screen clear if I have used the wrong cleaner

Short answer is no, if the screen is plastic and the chemical attacks the plastic. If it is too much liquid and it seeps between any layers, it could evaporate over time, but you will likely have a noticeable dry stain forever.

For you and everyone reading this, never spray or apply any liquid to any TV, monitor, laptop, or cell phone screen directly, I think it says that in the owners manual. Always apply a light amount of TV screen cleaner spray to a microfiber cloth and then lightly clean the screen. DO NOT use anything with alcohol, ammonia, glass cleaner types, baby wipes, pre-moistened wipes of any type unless it specifically states it's for LCD monitors and TV's. If you or the manufacturer apply more cleaner to the wipe or cloth than necessary, blot excess cleaner with a dry paper towel so that the liquid doesn't run or drip when applied to the screen during cleaning.

Turkey grease in oven, cleaned up excess liquid in oven tired to clean oven but fire started because of the grease. Can I use an oven cleaner to solve my problem?

Check out Easy Off Oven Cleaner. They make a special one for self cleaning ovens that won't hurt the self cleaning part of the stove. Just use small amounts at the time.

How do you clean the screen?

Use glass cleaner on a rag and wipe the screen that way. Doing it this way will allow you to clean the screen without getting excess anywhere else where it might leak into the screen.

Glasses smell like fish. I run hot water first just to make sure hot goes in right away . Please help

Any store which sells dishwasher powder/tablets will usually sell dishwasher cleaner as well.

It comes as either a sachet of powder (treat with caution as it's very corrosive) or as a bottle of liquid which you place inverted in the machine. The machine heats up, melts the wax plug in the bottle cap (remember to remove the protective label first) and allows the cleaner to do it's job. The liquid type has a small advantage in that by unscrewing the cap on top you can pour a small amount onto a cloth (wear protective gloves) and use it to clean around the door and the door seals.

Make sure before running the cleaner that you have cleaned out the debris traps inside the machine so that there's no food debris left to feed the bacteria which cause smelly dishwashers. Afterwards, always leave the door ajar between loads.

Hello expert

try cleaning it before you mess with any settings.

Your keyboard or number pad may collect dust and other deposits from regular use. Occasional maintenance helps keep the device looking clean and functioning properly.
WARNING: Before cleaning any electrical device or equipment, ALWAYS remove the device from its power source.

  • For cordless keyboards or number pads, remove all batteries before cleaning.
  • For the diNovo Edge (a rechargeable keyboard with a built-in, non-removable battery), or any other similar device, switch the keyboard OFF before cleaning.
  • For corded keyboards or number pads, shut down your computer and disconnect the keyboard from the computer before cleaning.
Keyboard and number pad cleaning suggestions:
  • Use compressed air to blow dust and other debris from between the keys. Logitech suggests using an air duster squeeze bulb specially made for keyboard cleaning to limit the force of the air pressure.
    NOTE: Avoid using high pressure air hoses and nozzles. Excess air pressure can remove keys or cause other damage to your device.
  • Use a small tipped vacuum cleaner to remove dust and other debris from between the keys. Logitech suggests the use of a small tipped vacuum cleaner specially made for keyboard cleaning. Many come with USB power cords and can run off your PC or laptop.
    NOTE: Avoid using vacuum cleaners other than the type previously described. An excess vacuum level and/or large vacuum tip can remove keys or cause other damage to your device.
  • Use a dry, lint-free, non-abrasive micro-fiber cloth to gently wipe clean the surface of your device. Logitech suggests using cloths which are specially made for keyboard cleaning.
    Note: Avoid using dusted disinfectant cloths or cloths dampened with liquids unless specifically designed for keyboard cleaning. Many cleaning solvents, chemicals, and other liquids can cause electrical and/or material damage your device. This includes leftover residues which can eventually damage your device over time.
Additional information:
Many consumer electronics stores and online re sellers offer third-party computer cleaning kits which include dry wipes, swabs, air duster bulbs, and micro-fiber cleaning cloths. Some higher-end cleaning kits come with keyboard vacuum cleaners, and/or product-safe disinfecting liquid for dampening wipes, for use in disinfecting the surface of the device. These liquid disinfectants are supposed to be non-conductive electically; quickly evaporate from the sevice and leave no residue. Logitech suggests you make sure these characteristics are plainly stated and guaranteed on the product package. These specially made keyboard cleaning kits are highly recommended.
  • DO NOT pour any liquids onto the device.
  • DO NOT submerge the device in any liquids.
  • DO NOT use a dishwasher, ultra-sound cleaner, or any other washing machine to clean your device.
  • DO NOT remove keys from the device.
  • DO NOT use cleaning solvents. Many cleaning solvents contain caustic chemicals which may cause damage your device.
  • DO NOT use drying machines, fireplaces or ovens (even set at lowest temperature) to dry moisture from your device.
Removing keys; submerging or pouring liquids on your device; using washing machines; exposing your device to excessive heat; or using caustic cleaning solvents may cause permanent damage to your device and will void the warranty.

SyncNaster 931B

take a soft cloth (type used for cleaning glasses) and moisten it with a small amount of water on one corner.

gently wipe the wet portion of the cloth across the screen (if you have any weak alcohol based cleaners you can try it. I have used hand sanitizer before on my 931b w/out problems, I wouldn't use any extremely strong liquid cleaners though).

Use the dry part of the cloth to wipe the area dry, then move to another part of the monitor once you are satisfied.

Cleaning monitor

I dont know which type you have but here is how to clean either:

Those big chunky CRT monitors have glass screen which are easily cleaned. The important thing to remember is that you don’t ever want to spray any liquid directly on the screen. Instead, spray the cloth with water or a mild window cleaning solution then wipe the screen. You can use the same damp cloth to clean the entire monitor case, as well. If you prefer, you can also use moistened paper towels to clean CRT monitors, You will be only cleaning the outside of the monitor case and screen. Never open the monitor casing which contain electric voltage that can cause a shock.

Flat Panel LCDs
LCD monitors are often called flat panel monitors because they are flat and thin. These are the types of screens that are used in most laptop computers, and they are also becoming very popular for desktop computers. LCD screens are softer than CRT glass screens, so they require some extra tender loving care. Keep your fingers and sharp objects away from these screens since they are susceptible to damage and scratches.
Use a soft dry cotton cloth to remove fingerprints and smudges from the screen. If this does not completely remove the dirt and splotches, use a small amount of isopropyl alcohol on the cleaning cloth that has been dampened with water. (A small amount of vinegar can be substituted for the isopropyl alcohol.) Again, spray the liquid on the cloth and never directly onto the screen. Do not use paper towels on an LCD screen as they can scratch the screen. Never use ammonia, ammonia-based cleaners, or strong cleaners which can cause the surface to yellow and become brittle.
It is good to have a special clean cloth that is dedicated to use on the LCD screen. Don’t pick up any old rag, as dirt particles in the rag can scratch the surface of the screen. Special LCD cleaning cloths are available and can be an excellent investment.

Ipaq wont open

The iPAQ will keep cycling through this alignment screen until it registers all five points correctly. Try cleaning the screen with a micro cloth and if necessary a little conventional glass cleaner. Then careful click on each of the X being careful to just click the center and not drag the stylus. Even the smallest movement across the screen will cause the registration process to fail. If that doesn?t work try doing a cold boot and restart the process.
