Clean the screen up, it could be that the glue left over is keeping it from recognizing whatever you're using to touch it.

I removed my touchscreen protector cover after that touchscreen is not working properly please advice me


Touch Screens do not last forever, and that phone that you do have is a sort of budget phone. Those phones aren't meant for lasting. It could have been coincidence that it started bugging out. This phone model is 2 years old now, If you can afford it, try getting an Android Phone.

You can also try to use nail polish remover on the screen to try and get some of the residue off. I really don't think that the protector being removed is the problem.

My touch screen does not work all the time and when i press the right of the screen it press the left for example when i press menu it brings up the phone book what can i do


There are a couple of things you might try. Do you use an adhesive screen protector? A screen protector which is trapped under the screen edge may interfere with touchscreen calibration. Occasionally, just having the screen protector on the screen can cause the issue. Try removing the screen protector.

You may have debris trapped under the edge of the screen. Use the corner of a piece of thin, stiff paper (copier paper works well) to very gently slide all around the edge of the screen. Don't let the corner of the paper travel more than an eighth of an inch under the screen edge frame. By doing this, you may be able to dislodge small particles of debris trapped under the frame.

I can't access the settings button on the screen which would allow me to reset the stylus. It is off alignment and I can't access the setting box. Any ideas?


Same problem here. This is what I have done so far with no results. I have taken the back off. I have unplugged and replugged the connection on the board. I have cleaned the screen. Does your capture and index button beep or emit a tone when you push them. I bought this used and I am thinking that the plastic screen protector in some way is not permitting the screen to work. But I am unsure of how to remove it. The screen protector seems really really thick. I am not sure if we can replace this with a touchscreen from a lcd monitor or it has to be a tv lcd screen repair. It is also considered a tablet pc so maybe a monitor touchscreen with a digitizer would work. I dont know but I wish someone would help us.

My daughter applied a screen protector to her phone. The touch screen stopped working, but the rest of the phone works fine. Any solution?


Remove the screen protector, if possible. Alternatively, see if a stylus (appropriate for the touchscreen type) on the touchscreen with the screen protector on. The likely issue is that the screen protector is too thick (blocking all signals) or is blocking the needed charge. Capacitive touchscreens take advantage of that human skin is a conductor and the electro-static charge from a fingertip needs to reach the panel under the LCD panel. In the future, she should use a screen protector that is either thinner or is designed to transmit a charge as needed.

I hope this helps.

Screen problem


Sometimes 3rd party apps that don't work so well with the palms can freeze them up.

You could do a hard reset and when you initially sync the palm, when it asks you for a profile choose a new one and see if this method removes your problem.

Does the calibrator keep looping or not seem to work?
If you can access the calibrator, but it loops through the target sequence (repeatedly asking you to tap the targets), there may be a physical problem that's causing your touchscreen to be confused:
  • Do you use an adhesive screen protector? A screen protector which is trapped under the screen edge may interfere with touchscreen calibration. Occasionally, just having the screen protector on the screen can cause the issue. Try removing the screen protector.
  • You may have debris trapped under the edge of the screen. Use the corner of a piece of thin, stiff paper (copier paper works well) to very gently slide all around the edge of the screen. Don't let the corner of the paper travel more than an eighth of an inch under the screen edge frame. By doing this, you may be able to dislodge small particles of debris trapped under the frame.
  • A heavy impact or scrape to the touchscreen can cause permanent damage. If your touchscreen is damaged, you may need a repair

Screen not sensitive to touch


That\'s unfortunate because the phone is mostly touch-controlled.

Do you have a screen protector installed? Some people have said that the MING is one of the few touchscreen devices that doesn\'t work well w/ screen protectors. Try taking yours off if you\'re using one.
