Proper cleaning of a Touchscreen


  1. Step 1 Turn off both the computer and touch screen. This way, you can see everything that needs to be cleaned. Some touch screen applications has a cleaning mode which turns off the screen for the specific purpose of cleaning. However, the monitor's brightness can make you miss some areas.
  2. Step 2 Wet a soft, lint-free or microfiber cloth with distilled water. Wring out as much water as you can. Make sure the cloth is damp but not wet. Wipe the screen in a gentle motion to remove dust, oil, or fingerprint smudges off.
  3. Step 3 Another option is to use a screen cleaner kit that includes antistatic wipes. You can buy this at various electronic or online stores. Spray a little solution on a wipe then rub it gently across the screen.
  4. Step 4 Finish cleaning the touch screen with a dry lint-free cloth to wipe any excess moisture, then turn it back on.

Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the battery.
Find a very soft cotton cloth.
Squirt a small amount of Windex(TM) onto the cloth -- not onto the screen.
Gently use the cloth on the screen.

Touchscreen will not work on my Samsung Brightside SCH-U380


Other than a bad digitizer (touchscreen) or connection, sometimes just a tiny bit of gunk/debris gets in that tiny gap that goes around the outside of the screen. That often results in the same problem,, a non-working touchscreen. Take a very thin edged piece if cut plastic as a "tool" to clear out gunk/debris from this gap around the edge of the screen. Some people even have used like the opposite end of a sewing needle (not the pointed end).
Many ppl have fixed a non-working screen simply by cleaning out this tiny edge gunk. Give that a shot as a first step. If you use care, you won't damage anything.

To prevent inevitable iphone 7 LCD Screen damage and avoid repair costs, invest in phone cases and screen protectors for your iphone 7. Screen Protectors Made from tempered glass, screen protectors safeguard your phone against scrapes and scratches without compromising touchscreen sensitivity or image quality. Phone Cases There are many stores make durable phone cases and covers to provide extra security for your iphone 7 and protect it from scratches, drops, and dust. A good Clean Because your iphone 7's screen is the interface of the device, it is bound to get smudged and dirty quickly from the time spent using it. When cleaning your screen, never use a chemical cleaning solvent. Instead, use water and a clean, lint-free, scratch-resistant cloth, such as microfiber. Dampen the cloth-not the screen-and gently wipe off with even strokes.

No signal how do I fix it


You have not said what model garmin nuvi ?
The touchscreen on a Garmin nuvi GPS usually loses sensitivity or stops responding if it's lost calibration.
This usually happens after prolonged usage.
Touchscreen problems are also caused by dirt, smudges and improper care.
If your Garmin nuvi's screen isn't performing as expected, Garmin provides solutions and tips to not only improve the device's performance, but prevent premature wear and tear.
Calibrating the Screen

If the Garmin nuvi's touchscreen isn't working, you need to calibrate the screen.
Calibration resets and repositions the screen for optimal performance without deleting saved settings.
Before calibrating the screen, press and hold the "Power" button to turn off the device.
Pressing and holding the "Power" button again for about 30 seconds automatically displays the calibration screen.
Pressing the dot on the white screen calibrates the touchscreen automatically.

Updating Software.
If The Garmin nuvi's touchscreen is still unresponsive, updating the device's firmware to the latest version can solve operating system problems that lead to touchscreen problems.
Before updating the device's firmware, connect the GPS to the computer using the USB cable. When the computer detects the GPS, the "AutoPlay" menu appears on the screen.
Tapping the arrow on the menu automatically opens the "myGarmin Agent" download page.
From there, follow the prompts to update your Garmin nuvi's software quickly and safely.


Cleaning. In some cases, the Garmin nuvi's touchscreen won't respond to touch if the screen is dirty. Touchscreens are sensitive to dirt and smudges that decrease sensitivity.
If the screen is dirty, cleaning it with a soft, clean, lint-free cloth improves performance.
If the screen is severely dirty, using water, isopropyl alcohol or eyeglass cleaner removes tough stains.
To avoid damaging the screen, apply liquid to a cloth instead of directly to the touchscreen before cleaning it.

Tips.

Refer to your Garmin nuvi's maintenance and storage information found on the device's manual prevents premature wear and tear.
If the screen stopped working after prolonged exposure to extreme temperatures or water, the device's hardware is most likely damaged.
In such a case, you need to contact Garmin for additional troubleshooting and possible repairs.
Attempting to disassemble and repair the GPS yourself only increases the risk of damaging the unit even further.
also it could be a battery problem if the nuvi is not getting power ?

I was just wondering how to clean a samsung rv510 laptop screen without damaging it? i dont have any special cleaning stuff.


Hi x_20_kelly_0,

For cleaning laptop/mobile phone screens all you need is an extra soft cloth which would not have result in any scratches on your screen , when you rub the cloth on the screen for cleaning it.

Now you would be wondering as to where can you get such cloth.

I would give you a hint.

Try buying a scratch guard for mobile phone and you would get a small cloth with it for free , you can use that cloth to clean your laptop screen and you can see the result for yourself, your screen would look as if it's all new again.

Hope this helps..:) Your feed back would be appreciated.

Is there a way to clean the inside of the front screen?


Not without removing most of the chassis. I am wondering if what you think is dirt is actually screen deterioration. One has to be carefull cleaning even the outside of the screen, except with a damp and then dry soft cloth. The inside of the screen is even more delicate and any pressure can rupture it easily and replacement is astronomical

My screen on the nuvi 660 will not respond.


Please don't attempt to do this yourself. You need the right tools so you don't damage the case and internal parts. Also, a replacement touchscreen does NOT come with the 2mm double-sided adhesive to apply it to the LCD bezel. You have to pry off the old touchscreen & glass, clean off the adhesive residue and apply the new screen. I've done this hundreds of times. Unless you have the right tools, you risk damaging your unit. I've received countless number of units that were damaged by their owners.
