Hi,

I am sorry to hear regarding the Problem. There could be only 2 Possibilities :-

1. Touch Screen is at Fault. This is really common and most of the times, the screen worsens along with time. No / Intermittent respond are mostly indications of Faulty Touch Screen.If screen is at Fault, Touch Screen needs to be Replaced.

2. Firmware Problem - If there are more than non responsive or half responsive action, it could be attributed to Firmware Fault and it has to be re-installed.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Ok. here's the thing. Sometimes it works fine but not for long. And when it works it is very accurate. I only replace the screen a short time ago. About a month.

    Thanks for your response!!

    This is usually a Sign of Faulty Screen. However, as you have replaced the screen about a month ago and you are sure that Screen is Working, Firmware seems to be at Fault.

    Try to Update the Firmware.If that would not help, get the Firmware Reinstalled.However,if that is a Firmware Fault, on Most Occasions, it would show White Screen as well.

    Usually a hard reset will clear up problems like this. To do a hard reset, remove the back battery cover, and then the battery. Wait about 5 seconds and then reinsert the battery and install the battery cover. The phone should start automatically within 10 seconds. If not, go ahead and push the power button to turn it back on. That should get your touchscreen unfrozen.

    If the Screen is at Fault, more often it would allow you to make and receive calls.However, the Touch Screen might or might not work.

    Let me know,if needed further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

    The screen is not "frozen" It is just not working properly. The hard reset didnt work.

    Thanks for your response!!

    I meant, the screen is unresponsive when you try to use Touchscreen. I could only comment that, if you are able to receive calls and even make calls, more likely it is a Faulty Touch Screen. I have no idea whether it's an Original One or not?

    These things might happen if you purchase screen from sites like ebay or so. Try to remove and again install the screen and see,if that could solve the issue.

    Other than these two, i could only say that either there is a Problem the way Screen was Replaced ( Loose Connection / Ribbon ) or there is a Circuitry issue.

    Let me know,if needed further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks

Bottom 'touch' screen not working since son dropped console on pavement from car. If I randomly press the screen, it does start up the console, but only the top screen shows anything, so is useless...


Sounds like both your touch screen and bottom LCD screen are broken, but your back light still works. That is good news, because you can simply buy a kit to replace the LCD screen, the touch screen (two separate kits), and repair the console easily.

Its saying calibration problem on the screen


When the Reader device is started for the first time or is reset back to factory settings, the screen must be calibrated. The Reader device will display a calibration screen that requires you to touch the stylus to the center of an "X" at several points on the screen. This is to make sure the touch screen properly recognizes input.
The process requires you to touch the "X" in the following locations on the screen:
  • Top left
  • Bottom right
  • Top right
  • Center
If the screen is accidentally touched someplace other than the center of the "X" during calibration, the Reader device will display a message stating Calibration error detected. Please restart calibration process .
If this happens, please start again in the top left corner and touch the stylus to the center of each "X" as it is displayed, being careful not to touch any other part of the screen. After the sequence is completed the Reader device will display Touch Panel calibration completed . Click OK to continue to the next step in the setup process.

My touch screen seems to be stuck in the bottom right corner (where the * button would be on the keypad screen) wont let me do anything else on the touchscreen. keeps going to my calender.


Hello,

You need to replace the 'digitizer' on your phone. You can find them on ebay
for around $10 and do it yourself. Or most cell stores will charge $30-$40 on average.

Touch screen doesn't work sometimes and can't be recalibrated


In that case, the touch screen is faulty and must be replaced; it's a fairly common fault and your faulty screen cannot be repaired. If you search YouTube for "Nuvi 760 battery replacement" you'll see how to dismantle your machine.

The screen is not hugely expensive and not difficult to fit, and as you obviously realise you'll need to enter the diagnostic menu after fitting to recalibrate the screen (for those reading this who are unfamiliar with this, press and hold the battery icon to access the diagnostic menus).

Although the screen isn't that expensive, consider whether to replace the battery at the same time as it's probably seen better days. But when you add the cost of the screen and the battery then if the maps on your machine are out of date then it's going to make more economic sense to buy a complete new machine.

The touch screen is not working properly when you


Turn the unit off and make sure the power cable is disconnected as well, get a good SCREEN cleaner. Not the same as Windex or other product. Clean the screen well, you need to get rid of the oils and dirt on the screen. Once you are finished and the unit has been dried off power the unit back up and in one of the submenus you will find a screen calibration option. Use this and you should then be finished and the unit should go where you touch. Hope this helps
