The first place to look is ebay, look for a broken model, as is. if you are handy, you can replace it yourself.

If the touch screen isn't working then you need to replace the touchscreen and display. They come as a single unit so you can't replace one without the other.

I doubt this will be covered by warranty as they will claim user abuse.
So you would need to find a replacement screen and get it to you if you can fix it, or pay someone to fix it for you or to send it to someone. All of that adds up if you include shipping etc. Typically screens for small gps if and when you can find them run $50-$100 so you have to decide if it is worth fixing or just to get a new one. This isn't a mainstream unit like Garmin etc so parts will be hard to find. You could contact Mitac and see what they can do ie sell you a replacement display or repair it. Unfortunately I would guess that anything you do will cost about as much as a new one.

If the problem is consistent in other windows besides strictly the keyboard it is possible that the capacitive touch panel is defective or has been damaged.

I have screen protector on my HTC hd7 and I have small crack on the corner (vertical) right lower. Can be repair?


Hello

The screen of the hd7's is made using corning's gorilla glass. Technically but also simply put, it's made of a single sheet of glass, spreading along all the front side of the phone. Glass is being used since it's more resistant to scratches and is a good electrical insulator, a needed property in the making of capacitive type touchscreens.
If you have a crack, most probably the surface area was broken due to some mechanical shock. Like any piece of glass, once broken it can't be fixed, it doesn't work like fixing a scratch on a plastic cover by polishing it. In fact i recommend you to leave it like this and try to cover it with the screen protector. The surface on the glass layer contains a special compound of transparent conductive polymers used to register screen taps. Actually this is what you touch when using the screen. It's not recommended that you try to polish the screen because you can accidentally remove this layer.

So, again simply put and sorry to make it this way, the wisest thing would be to either try to live with it or change the digitizer layer (glass front cover) but the last option can prove to be a bit expensive. Again, sorry for not being able to provide a more nicer solution.

The touch screen does not work. what can be done?


Are you using a screen protector? Because, in the manual, it warns that any screen protector used, will reduce the touch screen's sensitivity. But if the touch screen doesn't react at all, then it means that it's broken.

You might want to go to LG's website for support. :)
