Question about Palm Treo 750 Smartphone

Touch screen not responding

The touch screen on my treo 750 doesn't work anymore. I called Palm and they said it was an AT&T hardware problem but when I talked to AT&T they said it was a Palm issue. No one will fix this friggin thing for me unless I pay 200 or more for a fix. Is there a way I can change the screen and digitizer myself? And if I do will it fix the problem?

    I also am having an issue with the touch screen not responding as it should. I have taken the battery out multiple time to do a soft reset, re-alined my touch screen after the soft reset and still only half the screen works, the entire bottom og the screen will only operate by buttons only!

    I also have this problem, that started today along with not being able to answer my phone. Also does anyone's phone blink on and off at will? My Treo is an unlocked phone and I have T-mobile so my carrier does not support malfunctions!

    I have a 755 and I had the phone completely powered off last night as I putting a new scratch-protector film over the touchscreen. After pressing it down all over the screen area, I powered the unit back on and now the touchscreen won't recognize any "touch" so I have only the keyboard to use.

    I've taken the battery out and after it powers back up and goes the date/time setting screen the screen still won't respond. I've done the hard reset and "reset" the phone (most assuredly wiping out all my contacts and other info, at the hope this would remedy the screen issue) but to no avail.

    Is there some way I could have activated some sort of screen safety (disable) from pressing the film on it too hard?? If so, how can I reactivate it?? Thanks for any and all help!!!

Have you tried updating your Treo to Windows Mobile 6?  They have included quite a number of fixes in the update.  It is also much faster on web access.  I also have a Treo 750 and have only had to do one hard reset due to a button problem, but that was after better than a year of use.  I do have my expansion card not respond and have to pop it out and then back in occassionally, but that isn't that big of a deal.  My phone was a remanufactured unit.  Maybe they fixed the issue you are dealing with?

I have the same issue on both of my Palm Treo 750 models. I was busy with initializing one for a colleague today and did not get past the screen calibration window after you've done a hard reset. I did 3 more hard resets without result, plugged my Mini SD card back in the phone, no result, plugged my SIM card back in the phone, did again a hard reset and then I could calibrate the screen. Although I managed to get past the screen calibration, I noticed that this is not the response I'm used to see when using the stylus on my Treo. On the other Treo, I sometimes loos the ability to use the stylus on the screen after a couple of days. A reset mostly resolves the issue again for another couple of days...
What's up with these Treo's? The second Treo was just lying on my desk, not being used, so I'm sure it was not dropped or damaged in any way...

Does not respond to stylus

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.

Palm treo 750

try a reset, if that doesnt work, then we can try a hardreset witch also removes all your files from the phone.

If a hardreset doesnt work then the phone is in need of repairs.

Touch screen

You may have dust accumulation around the edges of your touchscreen, between the screen and the case. Try using a can of compressed air. Gently press down on the edges of the touchscreen to expose the gap between the screen and the case, and shoot the air in there. This worked for me when my Treo 600 touchscreen stopped responding.
