Re: alm one

PDAs that use touch screens have a very thin membrane over the screen itself that responds to pressure. If this membrane becomes damaged, which it sounds like what has happened, then you're more than likely going to need to have it replaced. You can try doing it yourself, but it's WAY up on the difficulty factor because of the complexity of the connection to the circuit board on the Tungsten E2.

To determine if your unit is, in fact, actually damaged, you should first make sure that you've syncronized the unit (which may not be possible if you don't have it set to automatically activate HotSync when the device is attached) then do a "hard reset" to restore it to the factory default. To do this, hold the reset button while simultaneously holding the power button for, at least, three seconds. You will get a message asking you to press up on the control pad to reset to factory defaults. Once the unit is reset, try the screen again... touching even the outer areas to see if there's any response. If it reacts, or beeps at all, then it may be an issue of recalibrating (using the "Digitizer") once it's fully reset. If not, it will need repair/replacement.

My asus p552w has align screen problem... when i enter this option it doesnt come out of it... just that target moves when i click/tap on it... it was getting clicked on right portion of the screen only so...

Hi Prash,

The solution is simple. Please tap the screen exactly in the center of the '+' sign that appears on the screen. The + sign or the target keeps moving till the screen is not alligned. I faced the same problem and searched and found your query on many forums but no luck. So I actually resorted to aiming the target with one eye closed...and the damn thing worked in one shot.....Now my default settings have been installed. Lets see what is in store on the other side of the default installation.

I have an imate pda2k pocket pc and is working good. Out of curiosity i tried hard reset and it ends to align screen. Everytime i made a hard reset the screen show " tap the screen to setup your pocket pc"...

tap and hold on align target until it moves to next corner or next step, if you are using windows 6 or 6.5 you should be very much accurate on taping and holding to align the screen.

I cannot get past the align screen page is there a way of bypassing it?

If it just keeps asking you to calibrate, then that means the touch screen is faulty.

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!
