Touch screen shows images but doesn't respond to touch

Hi I have had my HC42E for 3 years and it has worked fine until now. I got it out yesterday and it powered on as normal but when i flipped the screen out the touch screen doesn't respond to touch at all. I tried removing the tape and battery and re-starting it but with no sucess.

Any ideas on what could be wrong. I guess a repair to a touch screen would render it beyond economical repair.

Thanks

Gateway touch screen not working


I had the same problem for more than one year, i hated it and promised never buying gateway again... well yesterday i asked at the store, and the guy told me: the touch screen in these things dont work the same as an ipad, instead of the screen "feeling" your touch it has detectors on the border of the screen that send a signal of the position of your touch... long story short... bought canned air and blow the grooves around the screen, lots of dust in there... and it is working like the first day!

My ipod touch wont work


If iPod touch won't turn on, or if the display freezes or doesn't respond
  • iPod touch may need charging. See "Charging the Battery" in the iPod touch Features Guide.
  • Press and hold the Home button for at least six seconds, until the application you were using quits.
  • If that doesn't work, turn off iPod touch and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPod touch for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then drag the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
  • If that doesn't work, reset iPod touch. Press and hold both the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
If iPod touch continues to freeze or not respond after you reset it
  • Reset iPod touch settings. From the Home screen choose Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. All your preferences are reset, but your data and media are left untouched.
  • If that doesn't work, erase all content on iPod touch. From the Home screen choose Settings > General > Reset > "Erase All Content and Settings." All your preferences are reset, and all your data and media are removed from iPod touch.

To reset the iPhone or iPod Touch, press and hold down the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button simultaneously at the same time for at least ten seconds, then the LCD display will clear and the Apple logo appears on the black background. When Apple logo appears, reset is done.
