Usually when touch screens don't work, it is due to water damage. You can bring your phone to your carrier's nearest store and ask someone that works there to check if your phone suffered water damage. They'll check the inside of your phone. If that's the case, you'll probably have to buy a new one. If you're insured this shouldnt be TOO expensive. But if you bring it to the store and it's NOT water damage (perhaps a software issue), they should replace the phone for free!
Hope this helped

My mouse pad doesent work


Locate the function key on your keyboard (F1 through F12) that has an icon of a touchpad. This is often a rectangle with two smaller rectangles below it, representing the touchpad and its two buttons.


Press and hold the "Fn" key, usually found in the lower left area of your keyboard.


Press the touchpad function key and then release both keys.

If this does not enable your touchpad, try holding the "Fn" key down and pressing the touchpad function key twice in a row.


Shortcut Key Method


Press the Windows icon key on your keyboard and hold it down until the Start menu pops up. If your keyboard doesn't have a Windows icon, press "Ctrl-Esc" at the same time.


Use your arrow keys to locate the Control Panel and press "Enter."

Navigate to "Mouse" with your arrow keys and press "Enter" to open the mouse control dialog box. Then, press "Alt-F" together to access the tabs at the top of this box.


Navigate using the arrow keys to "Device Settings" or "Touchpad" or the similar option on your system and press "Enter."


Press the "Tab" key until the "Enable" option or a check box next to it highlights and then press "Enter." Press "Tab" again until you are highlighting "OK," and press "Enter."

Your touchpad will be re-enabled.


hope this helps

Dropped samsung jet touch screen not responding,


The touchscreen connector has come loose. It's a small flatcable which connects the digitizer (touch screen) with the pcb on the back of the screen. It's repairable, however you need to disassemble the complete phone. A great disassembly guide can be found here: http://www.formymobile.co.uk/jetdisassembly.php Good luck! :)

My MC70 work symbol wont respond to my touch screen pen


Does it respond to keyboard entry? If not, check to see if the "lock" icon on the screen is in the locked position. It's real easy to accidentially lock the device. If it is, just click on the lock and confirm that you want to unlock.

The next few can be a problem if the screen is not responding, so you'll need to figure out the keyboard equivalent:

You may also want to check the system settings. I believe there is a setting that will enable you to "turn off" the touch screen function.

Finally, try a touchscreen alignment in the system settings.

Touch screen


You may have dust accumulation around the edges of your touchscreen, between the screen and the case. Try using a can of compressed air. Gently press down on the edges of the touchscreen to expose the gap between the screen and the case, and shoot the air in there. This worked for me when my Treo 600 touchscreen stopped responding.
