I have the same problem. a few days ago i was charging using usb cable to my computer. after that, sometimes the screen goes haywire. the screen got stuck in the middle and shaking when i tried to swipe. when i'm using touch screen i couldn't not select icons on the upper side of the screen, instead the icons on the bottom side were selected.
can this problem be fixed? or this damage will stay permanently?

I agree. I'm on my 2nd G1 right now because my first one had touch screen problems. But the problems only started after I started using a different charger (it's been so long I can't remember whether it was just my blackberry mini usb charger, or whether I charged it from my computer; I think it was the computer). However, once it started spazing out it wouldn't stop, it was permanently damaged. So if your touch screen seems a bit finiky after charging with an odd power source, Stop ASAP or you risk permanent damage
your touch screen digitzer could be bad, if you dropped the phone or water damage was involved. Theres are cables that connect the touch screen to a lcd then to a flex cable that connects to the main board. I would first replace the touch screen digitzer.
First of all thanks for posting so much info, it helps us give more concise answers!
I'd be tempted to be thinking along the lines of a software issue as well. 2 quick things to try 1st; what happens when you plug it in to a different USB port? Have you downloaded the latest version of iTunes?
hello, seems like awhile ago but i hope i can help still.. no software is required to manage your sd card on the g1. what you need to do is plug the g1 to the computer using the usb cable. then when that happens you should get a notification on the top of the g1 screen saying usb connected. then you put your finger on the notification tab and drag it down. click on the option in the notification screen. then select to mount to access your g1. then on you computer you should get a screen asking how you want to view files. if that doent work go to my computer and you should see removabe disk and thats your phone.
This is how I did it. I am using Windows Vista so it maybe different for other OSs.
Find and select the picture(s) on your pc, copy them using CTRL-c.
Plugin your g1, and if you have installed the drivers, you need to goto your g1 and hold the USB icon on the top of the screen for a couple seconds. It should expand downwards, then pull it down. open the USB connected by toucing it. Touch the "Mount" button on the screen.
Autoplay dialog box should open on your pc, select "open folder to view files". open "dcim" folder. Paste the pictures in that folder.
NOTE: You will not be able to access the sdcard from the g1 until you unplug the USB after you're done.
Once all the pictures are uploaded into the sdcard, goto "My Computer" on your pc, rightclick the sdcard drive(it should be named like "Removable Drive" or something, and select "eject".
Now remove the USB cable, Select "Pictures" icon in you apps, if needed select "dcim" folder, and touch the pictures.
Siimilar can be done with music, just changing the instruction to "My Music" on your pc and also opening "Music" icon on your g1.
my workaround is to charge with a different power source, or stop charging. i think it's the power source. for me, the touchscreen goes crazy when i'm charging via usb with this old computer, but it's fine when i stop charging. it's probably an unclean power source messing with the capacitance sensor.
take the batteries out and put it back in again and try charging
check in diff power sockets
press the end of the charging cables with little amount of pressure and have a check
try to connect via the usb cable to the computer and check if it charges, if works the charger is faulty
if still did not work then it will be firmware problem with of phone
The problem is probably not with the USB cable if the GPS wont even turn on. The older firmware of the Forerunner 205 and 305 have a problem with locking up. This causes the Forerunner to look completely dead. There is a reset procedure: push the mode and reset button at the same time and then let go and hit the power on button. If it powers on that is the problem. Go to the Garmin site and load the newest rev. of firmware into the Forerunner. Fixed mine and a few friends with the same problem.
I do however have a cable problem. Sometimes my PC will come up with unrecognized USB device and my 305 wont talk to the PC, it does charge. It is the cable or dock for sure, because I have tried a different cable/dock and the 305 has no problem. This is the reason I ended up here. I hope the lock fix works for those with the above problem.
