    I had pressed the reset button and hoped that would work. Unfortunately the screen shows "CLOCK SET" and I cannot remove it from the screen. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

    Is there any technical reasons that would identify why the touch screen does not work? Thank you very much.

    I have the same problem. I got the calibration screen to work but it just does the same thing over and over and then still doesn't work. I also hit the reset button and had the same problem.

    I have the same exact problem with my camera. I too pressed the reset button and now have the clock screen up. Can't do ANYTHING, rewind, play, set clock, nothing! Tried the best solution but that didn't work either. Any other suggestions?

    I hadn't used the camera for awhile and when I did the touch screen would not respond. The camera will record but none of the functions are available. I haven't tried any of the solutions yet.

    Same thing. Touchscreen won't respond, and after resetting unit it just waits for me to set the date. Hmmm...

Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.
if that doesn't work try
Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.

    Believe it or not, it actually started working again?...from a technical point it makes no sense, besides dust or something. Generally you don't smack electronics...strange it worked,..thanks!!

I encountered the same problem, and recycling the unit in the docking station with the battery removed fixed it for me. Thanks very much.

How to rewind/fast forward trough currently listening segment?


Touch the screen, and 'reverse', 'pause', and 'forward' icons will momentarily appear on the lower portion of the screen. Before the icons vanish, touch either the forward or reverse icon and continue to hold your finger on the icon without lifting it off of the screen. Fast forward or rewind will then begin, at a rate of 5 seconds per second held. I am told after holding for 15 seconds or longer the speed of the fast forward may increase (true for other Coby models I have owned), but so far I have had no luck getting this to occur with my MP828.

My Sony handycam won't allow me to use the touch screen features in play mode. I can't rewind, play or fastforward the tape. It has reached the end of the tape - what now?


If the touch screen of the Camcorder is not working, please follow the troubleshooting steps.

Please make sure that you're using fully charged batteries.

Turn off the Camcorder and turn ON again and check the operation.

Reinsert the tape and check the operation

Try another tape to check whether the issue persists only with particular tape.

Try resetting the Camcorder by pressing the reset button behind the LCD panel.

Note: In the above figure, 8 represents the reset button.

If the issue persists again, please perform LCD screen Calibration and check if that helps.

Please follow the steps below to perform the LCD Calibration

If the issue persists again, service is required.

I hope this information will help you to resolve the touch screen issue of the Camcorder.

Touch screen doesnt work


Hi,
The connector which is called "Flexible Board" is cracked which connects touch screen panel with the main board. You need to replace that flexible board and your camera work fine again No worries, just contact any expert who have experience.
Thanks for using fixya.

Past experience shows you will not satisfactorily resolve this problem until the LCD panel is replaced. Spares are reasonable easy to source, e.g. (ebay.com, item number 280296211660).

Kenmore elite microwave touch screen stopped working


Same thing happened to us. We just came back from Sears, where we bought another. Just for giggles, my wife suggested unplugging the old one and plugging it back in again. It works now. New one's going back to the store.

All of a sudden some of my tapes will not playback and others will??


I have been experiencing the same problem with my Panasonic PV-GS120. I don't know the root cause or real solution, but I found if I keep playing the tape, rewind->play->rewind->play, eventually I would get the image back normal. I think I would try to clean up header with a header cleaner to see if it helps or not. If not, I plan to submit a request to Panasonic support to check out possible solution. Good luck.
