I had this same problem with a g1 i purchased from someone.. i did a hard reset then locked myself out totally couldn"t bypass the touch the android screen. I found out there is a smaller ribbon that connects to the the back of the screen that came apart either by dropping just tumbling around or whatever. the phone didnt show signs of damage anywhere so i think its just from bouncing around. But i have to warn you its hard as hell to put the thing back together again with the sliding mechanisms and getting the ribbon down there perfectly in place again. There are like 6 ribbons (screen, camera, keyboard, etc.) that have to be connected perfectly and tons of screws i found out half didnt even need to be taken out! But after a few hours of fumbling around its working perfectly.. the screen is responsive and phone is back to normal

The digitizer runs around $70. If HTC doesn't help you, here's a guide on how to disassemble an HTC G1. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you. If you want to pay to have a service do it for you there are third party HTC Repair Services.

There are known issues with many of the HTC touch screens becoming unresponsive. You can try to clean the perimeter of the screen with a card, etc then wash any oil from the screen...just in case. But a huge number of these have been coming back to the vendors broken, if this is the case you can only contact your provider and hope you can get it replaced/repaired under the warrenty.

I have a LG KP500 and its freezing, when i touch the screen it doesnt react or at times it send a wrong signal, what the problem and what can i do to fix it?


This a prob found in most phones of these versions. It may be a software problem associated with the phones OS. So you need to update it & I'm not sure you could find updates. Hope this gives you some idea, And you need a technician to correct it.

I have a memoir samsung T929, the problem is the touch screen is freeze, and I can't use the phone or making calls. Also can not access the menu.


Hi,possible problem that makes a phone freezes or have a touch screen freeze is Mainly VIRUS affecting a cell phone.

VIRUS affecting a cell phone is caused by downloading and application that has VIRUS, or through data transfer using a USB cable or transfer through blue tooth device.

When a VIRUS affects a phone,it makes the phone to malfunction and freezes.
To remove the VIRUS attack from a phone, you will need to flash the phone to restore back the phone memory to it's default..

Flashing a cell phone restores back the cell phone to a normal state.

You can use the below link to Know more and how to flash a cell phone.

Freezes at microsoft screen


try taking the battery out with the phone on, if this doesnt work and you cant get into the settings to do a reset you need to talk to your service provider about getting a replacement.

My touch screen somtimes works but sometimes doesnt


There isn't that much you can do to fix the screen if it faulty other than getting a new one.

Try freeing at least 4MB of handset memory then if it still freezes do a software reset.

If that doesnt work then its a new screen or if it is new you could get replacement or repair for free

My htc touch pro freezes and sometimes wont let me text.


Well u can start with reseting the phone from the little red button next to the charger piece. If that doesnt work, go to your company store and they should give you a brandnew one and transfer all you contact, cal ecents, ect. They can transfer everything except ur txts and emails. I hope it all workds out.
