Question about LG Vu CU920 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Humidity???? My touch screen just stopped responding. Nothing significant happened, although I spent a lot of time outside last night and it was extremely humid. Somehow I was able to lift the front screen and noticed some moisture on the screen. When I dried that out using a tissue the icons at the very top of the screen now work but nothing else responds. I was thinking of using a hair dryer....what should I do

A hair dryer could cause some damage and you don't want the moisture to leave any quicker than it got in. If you have access to desiccant container at school or work lab, place it in there overnight. Whatever got in will get out. Short of having that available, dry a few cups of rice in an oven at minimum temp for 5-10 minutes. Remove your battery (not completely necessary) and put the phone and the rice in a flour container or the like, cover it and give it over night. A warm dry location to leave it would be next to a water heater.

Screen does not respond to touch at times


I find this happens to me sometimes as well.
The screens are capacitive touch sensitive which means it responds to the small amount of electricity on your skin. If your fingers are damp, from sweat, high humidity, then the capacitance will not reach a level for the screen to react to.
Keep your fingers dry and keep the screen very clean and free of oils.

Ipod Touch vs. V -Touch


I would go for the ipod touch. Although it cost about $150 more than the V-Touch it last longer. For example first two days of owning my V-Touch the screen stopped working and it wouldn't turn on.My son brought his to school and when he got home there was a huge dent in the back plastic. Also they are very iffy a lot of videos won't work on V-touches and music and images. Although for the ipod touch you will be using itunes a lot adding more expenses they are more durable and rugged and have way better screen quality and sound quality. But if you are going for a gift for a younger kid ages 7-9 the V-Touch is exactly what you're looking for, a fun media player that won't last for ever but will last until you buy a more advanced (higher priced) media player. So if you are looking for something that will last for a a year and a half go for the V-Touch if you are looking for a long time commitment go for the ipod Touch.

Stylus taps to screen don't result in any changes


Hi there JL Dakota. I had many problems with my Z22 over the years. The top layer of the screen is a plastic sheet that must remain stretched completely ABOVE the lower layer of glass that it sits above. Going to Florida, from a colder climate, for example could WARM the screen up a bit, and allow it to stretch, and hit the lower layer. If it touches the lower layer, it shorts out, and will not respond to any touches after that. Putting it in the freezer will shrink the top layer of plastic temporarily, and allow touching the screen to push it down where you touch. Usually this problem is the result of years of NOT protecting the screen from being pushed on by having a HARD COVER over the screen - for example, keeping the Z22 in a pocket, a shirt pocket, a bag, a purse, a briefcase, even in a drawer full of pens, paper, stapler, etc. would TOUCH the screen, and eventually stretch it. If you see my website analysis of the Z22 kidbots.com/WEBADD/Z22_PALM_PILOT/Z22_PALM_PILOT.html , there are many photographs, and discussions on the various typical Z22 problems that I ran into, and the solutions. These include touchscreen problems, and include putting in the freezer, using a heat gun or hot air hair dryer, splitting the top layer and bottom layer of the screen apart, putting in a new screen ($9 US), etc. I discuss many other issues. Immediately getting a hard cover over the unit at all times is the single most important factor! Once the screen top layer is warped, just sitting the Z22 down upside down might let gravity pull the screen gently away from the glass substrate. Rubbing the screen, using your fingers, sitting the Z22 down on an angle, touching the screen with anything, all could cause it to deform and touch the bottom layer constantly... the link again is below. The general circuit board is incredibly tough, and the amount of abuse it took when I tore it apart repeatedly is amazing. Generally it is bullet proof. The dying battery, the extremely delicate touch screen, and the possibility of buttons shorting, are the biggest problems. Do take a look at the full discussion on the subject at the link. Good luck.

Megellan Roadmate 700, touch screen not working, if it works takes too long!


Mthomas, Although I can't think of any quick fix, if you have a cd of the software version that you've installed then try re-installing that. if nothing else, access the secret " " menu and reset user data, you'd be amazed at how much that can fix at times. At user menu (after reset) press "-" and repeat key at the same time. select "reset user data". If you can get it to the touch screen calibration test, then it could respond. (eventhough it's not working otherwise) Good Luck, DanEz007
