PPC 6700 Touch Screen Sensitivity Changed

The touch sensitivity on my PPC 6700 has dropped. It will no longer recognize the stylus tip. However, my finger tip works fine. I'm guessing a registry changed or something, because if it were a hardware issue, nothing would work.

Any ideas?

    Thanks for the tip, but I already figured it out. I forgot that I had posted this question here, or else I would have also posted the solution. It turns out a recent installation had changed a registry key that affected my touch screen sensivity. The registry is: HKLM\Software\Drivers\Touch\PressureThreshold . I doubled the value and it corrected the issue.

    I would be interested to know if this registry exists on other devices. I know there have been complaints about the original HTC Touch having poor touch sensivity (not the Sprint version available in the US but the original Touch). Has anyone tried using this key to resolve that issue?

    Thanks again for the help.

We're is the LCD located in my phone

One of the iPhone's greatest features is its highly intuitive touch screen.
Unlike other electronic device touch screens, your iPhone doesn't operate using the blockage of light to decipher which keys and commands you're pressing.
This makes it a viable choice for cell phone users who may not be able to complete other types of commands.
While you cannot alter the sensitivity of your iPhone, you can toggle certain features that make your phone easier to use.
How It Works

The key to understanding the sensitivity level of your iPhone's touch screen is first understanding how the touch screen actually works.
Instead of detecting light blockages or heat to interpret your finger's movements, the iPhone actually has a grid that lies underneath the surface of the touch screen.
When your finger touches the screen, electrical impulses detect the area on the grid that you're touching to interpret the letter, command or motion you're making to issue the correct response.
Screen Sensitivity
While previous models of the iPhone did offer the ability to change the screen sensitivity and the speed by which your phone responds to commands, the iPhones 4 and 4S no longer offer the option.
Instead, the touch sensitivity on newer phones is automatically calibrated for the fastest speeds, which means your phone responds quickly to your touch.
If this frustrates you and results in commands and calls you didn't mean to make, locking the screen by pressing the button on the top right-hand rim of the phone helps stop unwanted commands.
Assistive Touch
Update iPhones running on iOS 5 with an option known as "AssistiveTouch," which allows users who may not have complete control over their bodies and motions to use the iPhone.
This program allows you to change the speed at which the phone responds to your touch.
By tapping the "General" icon, then touching "Accessibility" and "AssistiveTouch," you'll enter the assistive touch menu.
When you turn on the option, an overlay appears on the screen that allows you to give commands by touch, rather than by shaking, swiping or pinching the screen.

When setting up AssistiveTouch, you'll have the opportunity to select your command tracking speed, which deals with how sensitive your iPhone is to your various gestures and custom commands.
Case Issues
Your touch screen isn't the only place where your phone is sensitive to movements.
Your iPhone has a feature called a proximity sensor.
The role of the proximity sensor is to sense the closeness of your face during a phone call. When the phone senses that your face is close to the phone, it locks your screen to prevent you from accidentally activating the touch screen with your cheek or ear.
This is handy, except when the proximity sensor is partially obscured by a case and is no longer sensitive to the position of your face.
The proximity sensor is found on the upper right-hand corner of your screen, so ensure that it remains uncovered to preserve its sensitivity.

Keypad is too touchy

Hello there,

If the keypad of your phone is too sensitive to touch, you will have to reduce the touch response from the settings of the phone. Or you can use the stylus of the phone when trying to touch the screen of the phone.

To reduce the sensitivity, go to menu, then you select the settings, then you select the screen options and reduce the screen touch sensor from fast to slow. That should help the situation.

Thank you for using fixya,

How do I change the sensitivity to the screen so that I can use my longnails & not my finger?

you will not be able to use your fingernail on the hero screen. the touch screen is similar to the iphone (capacitive) and different to most other touch screens that use a stylus (resistive).

your finger is required for the screen to pick up where you touch.

there is a special stylus you can buy that will work, but make sure it is specifically for the iphone. a standard plastic tipped stylus will not work.
