Hi, My m505 was not responding accurately to the stylus. I needed to touch the stylus about an inch below where I wanted it to register. I've had this problem before, but the distance of this mis-register was close enough that I could re-calibrate by touching the stylus on the marks on screen. This time, because I had to tap an inch or more below where I wanted to tap, I couldn't get to the screen to re-calibrate. I tried soft resets. No change. I tried several hard resets and it cleared the memory, but the very first screen asks to tap the stylus on a mark top left of screen, but when I tap there, there is no response. I had let the battery get down to warning me of low battery (just cos I hadn't recharged it for a while). Is there a solution?
Many thanks in advance for your help. Kind regards, Glen

The digitizer is very thin and paired with the screen. Sometimes they can get so pressed together with time and storage that can cause it to fail. Some people believe that you can put a spacer in there to separate them and try to "unstick it". This involves taking your screen apart and it might not even fix your issue. I would look on eBay or other sources for a replacement screen and just replace the whole thing personally.
HI, Here is a link to get you to the Palm support page. You can do a phone call to the but it will cost you $25. There is also a chat feature and that looks like it is free so hopefully that will help. Best wishes.
Try recalibrating the touch screen. Devices with touch screens need to be recalibrated in order to respond properly. The greater the use, the more often recalibration is necessary. I recalibrate my phone once a week. I hope this helps.
Haha I love the Centro. You need to perform a system reset to the phone the directions are in your manual. Basically, the touch screen is screwed and by reseting it and following the prompts that should resolve your issue. You don't lose any information either so you have nothing to lose.
I have an M505 with the same problem. After taking off the back cover, I found a defective (short circuit) SOT23 device nearly centered just below the expansion card slot. The markings are A5RGC, but I have been unable to verify whether this may be a programmable UJT (BRY61), a transistor or a diode. Does anyone have a schematic diagram, or kno where to get one?
