Back up the unit then do a master reset.
Switch OFF, Press Page + Menu and turn on, holding the buttons for 5 seconds.
Then recalibrate. I did the recalibrate a few times before it was OK. If you use a stylus when the cross appears and hold it on the screen and move it to the corners you can see the error. Make a mental note and go halfway between the two if it does not calibrate at first go. Then when it calibrates, do it again. I recalibrate every now and again. I think it could be a firmware problem. I will try going from 4.8 to an old version

Turn the unit off. Press and hold down the power button and keep holding it. You will see the screen light up and it will say "pre-boot mode". Keep holding down the power key. It will then say "booting". Keep holding the power button down. You'll then come to the calibation screen. Select the dots and you'll be back in business.

Please see this page for recalibration procedure. If that doesn't work, then then the touchscreen needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: garmin nuvi 200 wont calibrate

Yup, same problem. All it took was holding the power button to the left for about 30 seconds and the calibration screen came up. Problem solved!

Can not calibrate the screen


Here is the procedure to calibrate the screen if you can not reach the calibration screen through the GPS menus.

Nuvi 2xx/2xxW Series: Turn the Nuvi off. Place your finger on the upper left-hand corner of the screen and then slide the on/off power switch to the left and hold until you see the calibration screen. Note: Some 2xxW models require the procedure below for the 7xx.

Nuvi 7xx Series: Turn the Nuvi off. Touch the screen anywhere and keep your finger there while moving the on/off switch to left (don't wait for Garmin logo to come up) and then quickly moving the switch the right (lock position). After a short while, you will reach the calibration screen. Go through the entire procedure of pressing each dot as it appears on the screen until it says "Done".
Now if you go through and press the dots and it keeps looping without saying "calibration complete" then the touchscreen has drifted out of specification and must be replaced.
Please see this link for more information about touchscreens and how to get it replaced.

Why calibration want go off my screen of my radio power acoustik model 931nb


Your model must be PD-931NB.

If you do not have the manual you can download this from this site.
http://www.poweracoustik.com/pa2012/manuals/PD-931NB.pdf

I am assuming you are following the calibration procedure on page 40 of the manual. (refer page number printed at bottom of pages).

As this is to do with touch screen calibration, the most likely cause of the message coming up is a dirty screen. If cleaning display is not helping then the touch screen circuit is faulty.

I9 Phone Unlock wont move


Try Calibrating the touch screen. Listed is the instructions how.

Please use the stylus to calibrate!
The fastest way is to be on the slide-lock screen & hold the side volume button in the Up position until
"Press volume down key to check" comes up onscreen. This may or may not work on all firmware versions
on the current i9, but works on most. Make sure to hold the button firmly in the Up position. You will first
see the normal volume speaker icon show onscreen and the volume rise, but just keep holding it Up, and
eventually you should see the pop-up box noted earlier. The moment you see that pop up onscreen,
immediately press the side volume button in the down position. A white calibration screen should now
show & you can calibrate the touch screen using the stylus. Try to tap as close to the center of the little
pulsating icons as possible, as this will more accurately calibrate your touch screen. If the calibration
screen didn't come up using that method, then you can get to it from the Main menu screen.
Select "Settings", then select "Pen calibration", & follow the previous instruction.
