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.

Did you guys try clearing your cache and cookies? To do so, go to the Wrench -> Options -> Under The Hood. Under the Privacy section, click on the Clear browsing data button. Select to clear the cache and cookies options (note you will be logged out of any sites you're logged into).

If you're still having layout issues after doing this, does it work if you try logging into Facebook using incognito mode? Click Control + Shift + N to open an incognito window.
If the two above suggestions don't solve it, please provide your Google Chrome version (go to Wrench menu -> About Google Chrome) and tell us what operating system you're on (e.g. WinXP, Win7, Mac OSX, etc)?

Sounds like your LCD Control board went bad. Very small chance it is your main board since you said you cant bring up a menu.

You may need to run LCD test press *#0*# on the keypard. Once you have done it go to touch panel sensitivity run the test , if your handest doesnt not have a hardware issue it would work fine , if it does you may need to contact Samsung service cnetre to reset the firmware on your handset

1) To reset/change the SMART LOCK code, follow these steps.

Press the MENU button on the remote to display the on-screen menu.

Press the Cursor Up (also known as CH + button, above menu button) or Cursor Down (CH - below the menu button) to highlight SMART LOCK. Then press the Cursor Right (VOL + button to right of menu button) to display the SmartLock ACCESS CODE screen.

Using the numbers on the remote keypad, enter 0 7 1 1. " INCORRECT CODE" will appear on the screen. Enter the code 0 7 1 1 again.

Cursor Down to CHANGE CODE and enter 0 7 1 1 and then CONFIRM CODE and enter 0 7 1 1.

Press the STATUS / EXIT button (left of CH +) to save the new code in memory.

2) If the grandkids have locked out any channels, then you will have to perform the following steps:

Press MENU, highlight SMART LOCK, right arrow, enter 0 7 1 1, confirm by entering 0 7 1 1 again.
Cursor to BLOCKING OPTIONS, right arrow, and highlight CLEAR ALL, right arrow.

You should then see CHANNEL....ALL, LOCK....YES, ALL UNLOCKED.

Screen split with black bar through center, top of picture shows in bottom


It sounds as you desribe, the vertical output IC and or the b+ feed capacitor off the Hi voltage transformer feeding the vert. IC its required voltage. Not a really hard job to replace, but not for a handi person to do. This should be left to the professional, as there are no user serviceable parts inside this set and with the HI voltage and the safety issues its best to call somesone to assist you with this repair. Good Luck
