I would like to ask a couple questions that might be of some use.

First, does the same issue occur when using the phone with the flip closed? That is, can you use the jog dial and keys on the flip properly?

If the phone works fine with the keypad and jog dial, then you should be able to try to recalibrate the touchscreen.

To re-calibrate the screen:

1. Select Applications tab
2. Select Control Panel
3. Select Device
4. Select Display or Screen
5. Follow the instructions on the screen.
6. Select Yes or No


Second, if you turn the phone off and on again, with the flip open, does anything load by itself, or does the touchscreen react as if something is being pressed?

This may indicate that there is a problem with the hardware.
It is possible to purchase a new touchscreen for under $100 from a few parts retailers such as http://cnn.cn .

It may also simply be a glitch or bug in the software or firmware OS. In this case, you can try a master reset or updating the firmware using Sony Ericssons update service (not compatible with Vista for the P910), or you could use a third party firmware utility such as from DaVinci etc.
If you choose any of the master reset, firmware or update options, you will lose ALL user data on the phone, so you should back it up before you proceed.

Having trouble trying to figure out how to do the touch screen calibration


Touch screen is not supposed to be "calibrated" by users. All my family uses touchscreen smartphones and computers and NEVER anyone mentioned the need of calibrating a touchscreen. If you have some problem with your touchscreen, it is something beyond standard devide operation and you should take it for service, if it is on warranty, to site where it should be serviced

My v touch pro touch screen wont work


b> The Touch Pro2, manufactured by HTC, is a smartphone designed to be used with the Verizon wireless phone network. This smartphone combines a cell phone, PDA, MP3 player and wireless Internet access into a small, portable device. If the device begins malfunctioning or freezing, you can perform a soft reset. A soft reset does not delete any of your saved information. It shuts the phone down and reboots the phone to the Verizon Today Welcome Screen.

Pull the stylus upward to remove it from the side of the phone. Push the back cover upward using your thumbs until it pops from the back of the Touch Pro2 phone. The back cover can then be lifted away and removed from the phone. Press the "Reset" button, on the upper, left side of the back panel using the stylus tip. The device will now restart and display the Verizon Today screen. Snap the back cover back onto the back of the phone. Touch Screen is Not Working
As most tablet PCs ,Phones and Mp3 players are full touchscreen devices, you use your touchscreen for everything you need to do on your Tablet PC. If the touchscreen stops working, you can't get much use out of your Tablet. Touchscreen issues are caused by hardware or software problems, but check with your manufacturer before attempting a DIY repair.

Hardware Issues Damages to the surface of your Tablet PC can cause the touchscreen to malfunction or stop working entirely. For example, putting pressure on the screen, such as placing the Tablet PC in a bag with other heavy items, can cause cracking along the screen. Exposing the screen to water, even in small amounts, can cause the electrical system within the touchscreen to malfunction. If the electrical system malfunctions, the touchscreen stops working properly. b> Screen Sensitivity b> Pressing the touchscreen on your Tablet PC sends a signal to the internal motherboard. The motherboard then transmits to other components, such as the hard drive. The accuracy of the touchscreen depends on the screen's sensitivity. Many Tablet PCs include a program for calibrating the touchscreen. This program may fix minor responsive issues. Even a small amount of dirt or debris can effect how the touchscreen responds. Cleaning your touchscreen with an electronics cleaner or a microfiber cloth may help improve sensitivity. b> Software Issues b> A driver is a software program that interacts between hardware devices and an operating system, Your Tablet PC needs the right drivers for your OS to work correctly. Outdated or missing drivers can cause the touchscreen to work improperly, or not respond at all. Visit the manufacturer's website to find the right drivers for your Tablet PC. b> Repair b> While you can perform some minor repairs yourself, such as re-calibrating the touchscreen sensitivity or installing drivers, only perform a hardware repair if you have a good working knowledge of electronics, specifically Tablet PCs. Before attempting to repair your device, contact your manufacturer. If your Tablet PC has a warranty, completing an unauthorized repair may make you ineligible for claiming that warranty. Hope this helps

My daughter applied a screen protector to her phone. The touch screen stopped working, but the rest of the phone works fine. Any solution?


Remove the screen protector, if possible. Alternatively, see if a stylus (appropriate for the touchscreen type) on the touchscreen with the screen protector on. The likely issue is that the screen protector is too thick (blocking all signals) or is blocking the needed charge. Capacitive touchscreens take advantage of that human skin is a conductor and the electro-static charge from a fingertip needs to reach the panel under the LCD panel. In the future, she should use a screen protector that is either thinner or is designed to transmit a charge as needed.

I hope this helps.
