Garmin Nuvi 1300 touch screen not working


It sounds like you need your touchscreen replaced. The touchscreen is soldered to the LCD display, so the touchscreen must be unsoldered from the LCD display and a new touchscreen resoldered to the LCD display. Please do not attempt to do this yourself. You can easily damage the LCD display in the process. More information about touchscreen replacement can be found here:

Bernina 165 touchscreen not working


It sounds like you may have two problems - one is easy, but without the other, its hard !!! If the touchscreen isn't working, it may simply be mis-calibrated and cant be accessed. To recalibrate the touchscreen from scratch, switch the machine on whilst, at the same time, pressing both of the two needle position buttons - the calibration screen should then come up and you should touch the screen where the dots are shown to recalibrate it. If, pressing the dots does not do anything, the probability is that your touch overlay or main control board is faulty, in which case you will need to take it to your Bernina agent. If you manage to re-calibrate the touchscreen OK, switch the machine off and back on again and if the display is still very grey but readable, you can adjust the contrast of the display by pressing the button with an arrow facing right, inside a box - this will take you to the user adjustment menu. Touch the display button that has a symbol with three vertical bars of different shades of grey and this will take you to a display that allows the brightness and contrast to be adjusted - touch the up or down buttons to get the best display contrast and once this is done, you should be all working again. Good Luck

Htc touch, touch screen not working


The touchscreen is a thinlike mylar sheet that overlays the screen. Once damaged, all you can do it get it replaced. To verify if the touchscreen is "smashed", try using the thumbwheel or up and down buttons. If you can move around the display, then this means the touchscreen is damaged but will not prevent you from using your device, that is, until you turn it in for repair/replacement.
