    My screen is light black but I can see the screen, it appear the screen is frozen, it will not move to another screen nor will it turn off. When I call my I phone, it rings then goes to my voice mail.

Ahh i think i had something similar to this.. what i did may work for you is, putting the phone in bootloader mode, hold power button + home button for like 10seconds.. This should get you to a screen where it will ask you to connect to iTunes and restore.

So plug it in, iTunes should recognise it and then you should be able to restore it.

Hope it helps

Hi - i had the same problem. It seems that some early adopter iphone users have had sections or entire touchscreens not work. Best thing to do is call the Apple customer care or go to the Apple store. They will take it in for diagnostics and give you a loaner if you want.

My phone was back to me in a few days - and a new iphone btw.

My phone screen wont light up. I can make and receive calls and everything works. keypad lights up, I can see my wallpaper as a very dim shadow if I look but it doesn't actually navigate through...

Since you can see the wallpaper dimly, the problem is with the flex, which is wearing out softly.
That is the problem with slide, flip and swivel phones. It does not have to drop, but constant flipping, sliding or swivelling could cause its flex to wear out. Get it to a local repairer, and see if the flex can be repaired. Other wise, it would have to be replaced.
Hope that helped?

I jailbreaked using blackra1n and firmware 3.1.2, after 1week i am unable to use the touch screen to slide to unlock

jailbreaking wont break the touchscreen, your touchscreen has malfunctioned for a different reason, try restoring the ipod/iphone to official firmware and see if the touch screen works. If it doesnt you need a new touchscreen

My touchscreen doesnt work on my Ikasu 8gb media player for some reason anyone know how I can fix this?

If the touch screen does not work, it may be because it is out of calibration.
You can go into settings and navigate using the buttons to recalibrate the touchscreen.
Slide the on/off slider briefly. It should give you a menu.
Use the - button to scroll down to calibrate.
Push the M button
This gives the calibration screen.
Press the small square that appears in each corner, and finally in the center.
This should give you the touch screen, hopefully working.

There is a manual and other information here.

Touchscreen has stopped working.

it sounds like your ribbon in the phone that connect the main circuit board to the top screen may have come slightly out due to sliding the handset up and down many of times

i would take this to a respectable mobile phone repair shop and they will be able to fix this for you
