Sounds like a problem with the digitizer. Mine started out like this and got worse. I have owned my Palm for about 1-1/2 years and at least twice I had to do the following as my touch screen eventually quit working and I couldn't get the digitizer to fix it either. Below is what I have found that works and so far is the only solution. I think this is a bug in the system, but PALM has not yet posted any info or a patch to correct it. Unfortunately, this will erase all your data so be sure to back it up first.

-------------------

Sounds like the digitizer is so far off that the input won't align correctly. This would, most likely, be confirmed if you get any response when you tap the touchscreen (moving cursor, beeping, etc). You'll need to try a soft reset using the little reset tool in the end of your stylus, or a paperclip if you don't have it. Press and hold the reset button inside the unit (located in the back panel) for a few seconds until it chimes and you see the Palm logo. Then try the Digitizer again to calibrate.

Now, if that doesn't work, you may need to factory reset the device. THAT MEANS YOU LOSE ALL YOUR DATA, so do whatever you can to get it backed up. You simply hold the reset, then press and hold the power button for several seconds. Instead of the standard Palm logo you'll see a prompt asking you to press up on the touchpad, on the front of the unit, to reset it to factory default. It will then run you through the initial setup routine to set the date, time and finally calibrate the Digitizer.

Cursor won't move


If your iPad otherwise works normally (i.e. the touchscreen is fine), this was probably an input problem. I've found that my fingers don't work well on touchscreen devices if they're cold, or if my skin is dry. That usually means I tap or swipe things and it either doesn't happen, or doesn't quite work right because it couldn't track my finger properly.
Another thing to be careful of is that you purely tap the screen, and don't let your finger 'wander' on the glass before you lift it away. The iPad is very sensitive about skin moving on the surface, and if you're not very deliberate, it'll treat a clumsy tap as a 'slight swipe' - and swiping doesn't bring up the keyboard/cursor, so it appears not to work.

Wireless keyboards connect to tablets using Bluetooth, a wireless technology with a short range of only about 30 feet.
In most cases, you can prepare a keyboard to connect with a tablet simply by turning the keyboard off, then turning it on again while it is close to the tablet.
Read the instructions that came with the keyboard to see if it requires a passkey to connect with a device.
The passkey ensures that your keyboard is not accidentally connected to another nearby device. The steps required to connect a tablet to a wireless keyboard can vary slightly depending on the tablet's operating system.
Unlike docked keyboards, a wireless keyboard does not have to be designed for your specific tablet for it to be usable.
Turn on the keyboard and put it in discovery mode.
Place it near the iPad.

Tap the "Settings" icon, then tap "General."
Tap "Bluetooth" if it is in the Off position.
Tap the "On/Off" switch to turn it on.

Choose the wireless keyboard when it appears on the screen. Enter a passkey for the keyboard if prompted.
The keyboard name and a Bluetooth icon appear on the screen.
BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet
Turn on the Bluetooth keyboard and put it in discovery mode before placing it near the tablet.

Tap the "Settings" icon on the tablet status bar, then tap "Bluetooth."
Tap the "Bluetooth" switch to choose the "On" position.
Tap "Add New Device," then select "Search."

Wait a few seconds for the keyboard to appear.
Enter the keyboard passkey if prompted.
Samsung Galaxy Tab (Android)
Turn on the wireless keyboard and put it in discovery mode.
Place it near the tablet.


Navigate to the Home screen. Press the "Menu Key," then select "Settings."
Tap "Wireless and Network," then "Bluetooth Settings."


Tap "Bluetooth" to turn it on, then tap "Scan Devices."
Select the keyboard by tapping it.
Enter the passkey if prompted.
HP Slate (Windows)
Turn on the wireless keyboard while it is near the tablet, then put it in discovery mode.

Tap the Start button, then "All Programs."
Tap "HP," then "HP Connection Manager."
The device searches for nearby devices and lists them.

Locate the keyboard in the list, then tap the "Power Button" beside the keyboard entry.
Enter a passkey if prompted.

My bluetooth brookstone ipad keyboard is not working


The iPad's touchscreen keyboard isn't bad, its actually pretty good for a touchkeyboard. However there can be times where you may need to do some major emailing or even document writing and need a keyboard. This recipe will show you how to pair any bluetooth keyboard with the iPad. You don't just need to use the Apple one, any bluetooth keyboard will work!

1. Go to Settings - General


2. Tap on Bluetooth, if its Off, tap on it to turn it On.

3. Now put your bluetooth keyboard in pairing mode; usually a dedicated button or by holding the power button down for 5 secs.

4. Once you do this, your keyboard will show up under Devices and say Not Paired.


5. Tap on it, You will be prompted with a message to type a series of numbers on the bluetooth keyboard and then press Enter on the keyboard.


6. The keyboard should up under Devices and say Connected.

Tips:
-If your keyboard has a volume controls and media player controls (ie play, next, pause, prev, volume, mute), they will all map in the system and work in iPod and Videos and control the system volume. These will also work when your in an app with the music in the background (ie Safari, Pages, Mail, Calendar, any of the native apps)
-The Internet Home button on some keyboards will act like the Home button. My Dell BT Keyboard w/media/internet controls works like this.


To Unpair:

Go to Settings - General -Bluetooth, Tap on the arrow on your keyboard in the list. Tap on Forget this Device
hope this

for Android phone
4. Press the "Home" button or capacitive area, then press "Menu." Tap "Settings."
5. Tap "Language and keyboard." Tap "Keyboard settings." Tap "Tutorial" and go through the steps that appear on your screen.
6. Once this is finished, turn your phone off and on again. Your keyboard has been adjusted, which activates a re-calibration of the capacitive touchscreen. (Capacitive screens are technically far more accurate that resistive, and so a full calibration tool is not included with Android phones.)
