Re: Touch screen will not work

Have you tried to recalibrate the screen? If my kids get a hold of my iPAQ it will behave in a similar manner. I just have to tap on my screen in various locations until the PDA thinks I pressed on the start button, then use the directional pad to navigate to settings -> System -> Screen and press the "Align Screen" button again with the directional pad.

If this doesn't work, the digitizer (the part of the screen that recognizes your touch) could be defective. I replaced mine when my screen was broken, not that hard to do.

Htc touch

Its time to take it in for service. Touch screen needs to checked. There is nothing much you can do apart from what you have done on your own. It requires special tools to open.
I suspect the Touch screen has to be recalibrated.

Areas of screen not responding to touch

The digitizer is defective and needs to be replaced.

You can find digitizer parts in ebay or other on-line companies, at reasonable prices.

Regarding the labor cost, depending of the repair shop you choose, it may be cheap or expensive.

Also, if you have minimum experience and skills in fixing electronics, you can try it. really is not so difficult, and minimum set of tools are needed for it

I tried everything, even heating my Palm as described here.
The only thing that really worked for me was pressing the "up" button while pressing the "Reset" button (hard reset). Luckily, I had all of my files backed up. The hard reset truly worked. Good luck to all!
