My TouchPro touch screen stopped working a long time ago but I have found a way to get it working temporarily. There is an oily looking spot near the edge of the screen that, when touched, freezes the screen. I keep a small plastic suction cup (about the diameter of a dime) in my pocket that I depress onto that spot and pull up. The plastic screen surface pulls away from the oily spot and the screen unfreezes. If you don't have a suction cup, use a piece of tape; but be careful because tape sticks so well that it is hard to peel off without pulling the screen surface too hard and making the sensitive spot bigger.

I have found that putting the phone in my pocket with the screen facing away from my thigh often keeps that spot from being pressed. And if I need to tap a button near the bad spot, I slide the keyboard open to change the screen orientation so I can click the same button at a different part of the screen. But if the screen sticks, I pull the suction cup out of my pocket! I am hoping to keep limping along with this method till the LTE phones from Motorola, Samsung, and hopefully Apple, come out in June 2011.

There are two screens.one is LCD and another touch screen. It is very thin gap between these two screens, if you press hard the top 'touch' screen, it touches another one, LCD screen. This creates circle that looks like water, but it is not. Check water indicator on battery, if it is not red , take it back to store for repair.

I suggest taking it to your compaany store but before you go to the store and have them tell u the phone is water damaged, you can save yourself the trip by looking for yourself. There should be a little square located in the back of you phone right below the battery and a little square locatedd on the batery where it connects to the phone. If the phone has water damage then the littl e squares should be red if they dont have water damage, the squares should be white with a plaid kind of design.

I have several large water spots on the lower right corner of the tv from overspray with windex. Can this be fixed?


Not a good idea to clean tv with windex. Try wet towel dipped in mild soap solution. Make sure all water has been removed and towel is only wet. When tv off, try removing the spots. Turn tv on only after tv dry.

Screen broken on htc touch pro 2


Would you mind telling us, what it is that's broken. Did the lcd physically broke (i.e. in serveral pieces)? In that case, you have to replace it.
Did it just stay black? Could you check (with a bright lamp) whether you can see a hint of a little, then? If so, the backlight has gone bad. If not, or if you can see it lighting up on start, but it stays black, it might be the connector...
If the screen itself works, but the touch part of the touchscreen does not, look around here, there's a solution in a thread called "HTC touch pro... touch screen has stopped working".

G1 got little wet but it dried out and screen shows all but now triangle and cant get touchscreen to work....what do i do?


If it got wet it might still be wet from the inside and that is why your touch screen wont work, You would need to open it and clean it from inside. Or it could have a bad digitizer and that is a second reason why the touch screen wouldnt work. You can try doing a hard reset if you says it just shows a triangle on the screen.

Turn the G1 off. If it’s frozen on, take the battery out and put it back in the unit.Hold the Home and Power keys down at same time for about 25 seconds. You will see a yellow triangle screen with exclamation point in the middle
Now to wipe the device clean:
Press Alt+L. Press Alt+W for a factory reset.
Press the Home and Back keys again for about 25 seconds.
The device should then reset again and the hard reset is complete.

Your description of the problem says that the firmware is corrupt. Reinstall the firmware. That should solve the problem. If the problem still persists then the display IC has gone or is going (I hope not). Should that happen then the phone will have to be scrapped as it becomes beyond economic repairs.

Screen on my Sprint HTC Touch Pro Glitches up


You need to walk in to a sprint repair center and have them change the ribbon from the sliding LCD screen. If u have the extended warranty there should be no cost. If you don't you have to pay get it repair it should not be more then $55.00 to get it repair. Or you can send it to HTC and have them repair it for you but it takes 3 weeks to get your phone back.

Htc touch screen not working.


Hi, I had the same problem. Whenever, I touched my screen the wrong things would respond, then finally one day my phone locked & when I tried to unlock it the screen wouldn't respond at all.Took my phone to 3 sprint stores and all the techs couldn't help. One even accused water damage or overheating because they saw spots under my screen. But I never wet my phone so I thought it might be overheating since I do live in a warm climate. They all tried to get me to buy a new phone, which seemed like a scam. I didn't want to hard reset & lose all my data so I looked closer at the screen & noticed the spots didn't look like water spots & peeled the screen back. I noticed that the glue from around the screen actually leaked onto the screen, so I dampened one end of a q-tip & wiped the glue off the dryed it with the other end. I turn the phone back on and the screen worked fine. Try cleaning thr screen before doing a hard reset or paying for a replacement phone. It'll save you time & headache.
Hope this helps =)
