TyTN II - Keep the phone screen alice during a call

Hi there.

I've just replaced my O2 XDA IIs with a HTC TyTN II. When I make or receive a call the phone screen blacks out completly. If I press the green answer button the screen comes back - but the call is on hold.

I have set the backlighting to remain on both on bateery and mains power - yet I still get this black screen.

It makes it impossible to key in additional number once the call has commenced.

Is this normal or is there a fix or workaround to keep the screen alive during a call?

Any ideas appreciated.
Thanks
Corpcc

Hi there,
Received the following reponse very promptly from HTC Support
---Quote---
This is actually a function of the phone and not a fault. It was designed so that when you were on a call and had the phone against your ear that you didn't accidently tap on the screen and open functions or end the call etc. If you wish to access the touchscreen while on the phone you can press the power button on the side of the phone to turn the screen back on. I have attached a 3rd Party Application that allows the screen to stay on while you are on a call. Follow the below steps to install the program. Attached is a patch for the TyTN II screen blackout issue.
This is not an official fix.

  1. Copy the KaiserTweak.zip folder to your pc's desktop.
  2. Connect you device to the pc via ActiveSync.
  3. Use the Explore function in Active Sync to copy the KaiserTweak.zip folder to the windows directory on your TYTN II.
  4. Disconnect your TYTN II from the pc.
  5. Open up file explorer on your TYTN II and go to the windows directory
  6. Unzip the folder to the windows directory on the TYTN II
  7. Run the Kaiser Tweak.exe to install the patch.
  8. Adopt the recommended configs, not the default.
  9. Soft reset the TYTN II by pressing the stylus into the little circle hole on the bottom of the handset.
If it doesn't work first time hard reset and try again. ---End Quote --- Thanks to the FixYa guys for thier intererst in this topic and problem Cheers Corpcc

Hi. You need to replace the digitizer. This happens to many touch screen phones from all brands.
you can purchase from:
http://cgi.ebay.com/US-NEW-HTC-TyTN-II-TILT-8925-TOUCH-SCREEN-PAD-DIGITIZER-/350435156469?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item51979021f5

After purchasing you can have it replaced in a cell repair shop or similar shop. Or you can chose to replace it yourself.

Thank you for using fixya.

How to hard reset my o2 xda II?


To perform a full reset
A full device reset clears memory, deletes all data, and restores the Pocket PC Phone to its default settings. Programs installed at the factory remain. All data that you have created and programs you have installed are erased.

Press and hold the Power button, and then use your stylus to press the “soft reset button” at the same time. Be sure you have backed up all your data on an SD card or on a desktop PC before performing a full reset. Hope this helps.

Quite possible the upgrade failed and has corrupted something.

You will need to find out how to perform a Cold reset as this should return it back to factory defaults.

See here for some assistance.
