Hx2415 stuck on align screen

After a hard reset, it prompts to tap screen to begin. I do that and it starts the alignment process with a cross in the page. I tap all over with no response. It's stuck!!

Hi, do not tap the stylus in the cross exactly in the middle. Tap it with stylus 3-8 pixels around the cross. If this does not help then it is hardware issue.

I think you have a problem with you touch screen digitizer. you can send your device to a repair center to replace the TP only, without the need od replacing the entire LCM display panel.
A touch panel withou the lCD should cost much less than an LCD.

Screen not aligned


Ref. HP ipaq hx4700: "Align screen" after hard reset or battery loss. I know others have had trouble getting past the "align screen" setup; I saw a suggestion somewhere that said the points were registered incorrectly (maybe in some, but not all of this model?); and they had to tap at locations other than the center of the cross symbol. I tried a variety of combinations, and found that if I tap ABOVE the center (but still on the vertical centerline) for the middle, top left and top right locations; and tap BELOW the center (but still on the vertical centerline) for the bottom left and bottom right...it worked. That brought me to the "Stylus" setup screen...which I also became "stuck" on. So far, I haven't found a solution to THAT issue yet. Gee, why can't they make these things simpler?

The screen is stuck on the align screen i reset the phone and attempted to reload windows mobile and when the align screen came up i tapped it but it wont go away


Did you perform a hard reset? To do this:

  1. Slide open the device to expose the QWERTY keyboard.
  2. Press and hold the center of the 5-way navigation pad.

  3. While holding the center of the 5-way navigation pad, use the stylus to gently press and release the reset button.

  4. When Clearing Data... appears on the screen, release the center of the 5-way navigation pad.
  5. When prompted, tap the screen to setup the device.

My i-mate pocket pc screen does not get aligned


Hi. You should tap the screen with the stylus carefully and with a little bit more pressure, accurately on the cross sign evertime it appears. When you successfully tap each cross sign once, you would be able to pass to the other settings, but in case there is a problem passing though the screen aligning, here is a small tutorial about how to bypass that screen through your PC: (http://goatechno.blogspot.com/2008/12/windows-mobile-stuck-at-screen.html) Hope this helps.

The align keeps on and on


You should align your screen by tapping each time (Just tap a bit carefully and with a little bit more pressure) that cross shows up during the setup process. It should take 4-5 steps and at the end you can follow the other setup instructions. Hope this helps.

The touch screen does not appear to be working


needs to be replaced , if it does not respond to ur taps have u tried aligning the screen does it work at all or no area is responsive on screen then u can try hard resetting it first but after that it will be guaranteed that ur touch panel is faulty which seems like to me

but one thing u shud now do all data will be lost in factory reset process and if ur touch panel is faulty u will stuck up in initial aligning process so pls backup first b4 going ahead sync contacts and sms calender an stuff then try this

hard rest factory default settings = when ur set is switched off press both buttons call and end key and then press power button on upside of pda for like 5 sec screen will appear asking to format all data take out ur card if u dont want to format that now confirm by pressing the centre action button in 4 side joystick and go

if u are stuck at align process then it is now pretty sure that ur TOUCH PANEL / also called DIGITIZER is faulty u can get it replaced around 60 $ or so

pls rate me fixya for my diagnosis if u like

I have a tmobile wing the phone works fine but the touch screen does not work. i got the phone from someone and when i switch the sim cards it went to the screen that says to taap it to align the screen..i...


All you have to do is tap the screen with the stylus (slim pen that is position on the bottom right side of phone) where ever you see ( + ). Follow the plus sign ( + ) where ever it is on your screen. It should go in 5 different directions on the screen before it prompts you to the next screen. This process is mostly needed for hard reset (starting from original factory settings) or if you need to align the screen with the stylus.

Please make sure while performing the aligning task to tap the center of the (+) as possible. Not doing so may result in a poor functioning screen.

I have same problem but found a work-around. I have found that 2 SD cards kept in the pockets in the flip over cover of my leather case has caused scuffing to the touch screen and the screen will now not align properly. In the alignmet utility I have to tap the centre of the alignment cross in the middle and 2 top positions and tap about 3mm above the cross in the bottom 2 positions (portrait format). This means of course that the bottom of the screen is out of alignment and I have to tap high at the bottom of the screen but I have got used to it. Not great, I know, but its better than nothing.
