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.

Evedure heater difficult to turn OFF. Touch panel doesn't seem sensitive any more.


Spray glass cleaner on a rag or paper towel..not on the touch screen...wipe the touch screen down and clean it. Touch screens often build up a layer of the oils on our fingers which then traps dust and dirt making them less sensitive.

Where is pc settings/ calabrate located in lenovo c260


From page 21 of the user manual, "The monitor is touch-sensitive thanks to its touch-sensitive screen. A touch screen is an input device just like a mouse or a keyboard, and the user's fingers transmit position information via the touch screen to the computer. With this technology, you only need to touch the pictures or words on the computer display lightly with your finger, and the computer will react. Touch Screen Calibration Prior to first use or whenever the touch screen reacts in a different place where you are touching it, start the calibration program. The procedure is as follows: 1. In Control Panel, select "Hardware and Sound". 2. In "Hardware and Sound" window, select "Tablet PC Settings". 3. In "Tablet PC Settings" dialogue, click "Calibrate" button. User Gesture Instructions for the Touch screen The Touch screen supports single touch and rotational movements, enlargement and reduction multi-touch operations, and the user can transmit position information to the computer via touch. The touch screen uses a very low pressure movement recognition method, which only needs the finger to move lightly on the computer display screen or make a simple hand gesture to be detected by the main computer processor. 16 User Guide 31506537 C260 UG V1.0 (Win8.1)(EN)(R).indb 16 2013-12-6 11:54:06

Ckeyboard on phone so sensitive a letter above on next to it will appear, frusteratomg


After reading some information about the phone, most actually have the opposite problem, where they would like for the screen to be more sensitive. Now what I can tell you from working in the field for so long, is it does take some time getting used to where your finger actually touches the screen. If you notice the image I have attached, the point in which you may be used to touching things, and the point your finger touches the screen may be different. Now its been almost two weeks since this was posted, but if you are still having issues, I challenge you to really pay attention to where you are first touching the screen. Hope this helps out and good luck! fae5fee7-c948-403a-bfd4-a1d43ce290d1.jpg

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.

How to adjust sensitivity on ELO Touch Screen monitors


you probably have a capacitive screen, it only responds to finger press. You need a resistive screen to be able to respond to finger, nail, or pen press.
