My touchscreen will not work

The bottom half of the screen does not respond at all and the top half is off by about 0.5". I can not find a way to access the menu screen to perform a calibration or anything else.

Unfortunately there is no quick fix for this as far as i know. my first impression (that i only had for 3 1/2 months) decided to completely freeze the touchscreen, when i had absolutely no water damage and had never dropped it. i tried EVERYTHING took out the battery and the sim for an entire day, turned it on and off, and nothing worked. One thing i know, try your best not to drop this phone because my friend also had to get a new one because she dropped it several times, and they are VERY sensitive, and dropping it throws off the calibration, as does getting liquid on the screen. I went to a local at&t store and they said I would be eligible for a new phone because I had not caused the phone to stop working, but they could not give me one at the local store. i went to a DSC (device service center) for at&t, and the guy took one look at my phone, tried to play around with it, and within a couple minutes said I would be receiving a new phone that day. I received a new phone, and even got my numbers and my sim transferred for me. if your phone continues to freeze up, definitely bring it in. hope this helps :)

I had top screen replaced on my Galaxy S4 SCH-I545. Now the bottom half of my touch screen does not work. What could have caused this?


Sounds like your digitizer wasn't properly connected or were given a defective one. Some connections have a cam-locks, some have a wedge style which you can fail to get the ribbon in far enough and some have a socket connection which either connect or don't. If a shop replaced it, they should have tested it which could indicate a defective part or a connection came apart. Was it dropped? If you or a friend replaced it, recheck all connections, especially those going to the digitizer.

I had the exact same problem on one of my phones. The problem was that half of the small ribbon cable was cut in half, so part of the touchscreen digitizer worked and the other half didn't. I had to either replace the digitizer or get a new phone.

The touchscreen won't respond when i touch it however it goes through stages when it will respond


Take the back cover off at the top you will see two screws remove them and you should be able to pull away the front cover useing your finger nail where the volume controle is then try the screen again it should work its a bad contact on the screen ribbon. If it works click it back and try again this worked on my phone put the screws back in hope it works for you.

My samsung touchscreen does not respond to my touch


On a note to the bottom half of the screen not working, just bring it in to an Apple store and they will give you a brand new one. Thats what happened to me the other day, no questions no problems. You don't need to download anything, just bring it in and they swap your sim card into a brand new one. But if you messed with it and they dont accept it then too bad for you
thanks

Put in new top screen, now bottom touch screen unresponsive


I know you replaced both top and bottom, and I am assuming that you placed the touch screen as well? it would be the touchscreen that is not working or you did not connect right. connie
