Hi,

To recalibrate follow this procedure.
Go to setting>phone setting>calibrate

The calibrate screen pops up follow the screen and with the finger or stylus click on the cross image.It will ask for 2-5 times until it is able to detect your response time.Then save the changes.

If you are not able go into menu settings.To make the calibration to Factory setting.(Take back up of all data)
Reset is the only option if you want to take it to the Factory setting.

If you want get it back to factory settings.
full reset:*2767*3855#
default code:000000


If still after the old calibration if you have problem with the touch screen.
Take apart the screen and remove all the dirt and water particles.


If still you have the problem check for any internal component failure.Check flex is properly placed into the socket.If it is defective
Replace flex cable.Flex cost is around $10.

post a comment for further assistance.
Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

Touch sensor not working


If your touch screen is not working, theres just 2 major causes of such, either a hardware cause which might be either the phone falling on a hard object or in water which could damage the sensor board and either the screen is malfunctioning and needs to be calibrated.
If you can access the menu of the phone, i will advice you calibrate the screen first before you send it to a repair shop. There is no updates to download for such problem as updating the firmware of the phone would do nothing but change the settings of the phone.
To calibrate the screen, you will have to go to the phones menu, go to settings, then you select the calibrate screen, it will show you some stars to touch and once you touch them properly, then your screen will be able to work effectively.
But if you cannot access the menu because of the touch, then i will advice you send it off for repairs, and what to repair on the phone is the sensor board.

Hope this helps you.

You may need to run LCD test press *#0*# on the keypard. Once you have done it go to touch panel sensitivity run the test , if your handest doesnt not have a hardware issue it would work fine , if it does you may need to contact Samsung service cnetre to reset the firmware on your handset

Flex of the phone can also affect the function of the touch screen.

The flex of the phone is located inside the phone, it controls the functions of the screen an also the keypads of the phone.

The flex is a thread like object that is located inside the phone. To see the flex, you will need to disassemble the phone to get to the flex of the phone.

After replacing the phone flex, your done.

You can get a replacement flex from any of the phone repair stores around you.

Hope it helps.

My touch screen quit working


Hello,

If the touch screen of your phone keeps working, then it means the sensor board of the phone is bad and need to be replaced, if you can access the menu of the phone, then you need to calibrate the screen first.

To calibrate the screen, you need to go to the menu, then you select settings, then you select calibrate screen then you follow the rest of the instruction from there on.

If calibrating the screen does not help you, then it means you have to fix the sensor board of the phone, if your information from the keypad reaches the screen, then it means you simply need to replace the touch sensor board of the phone.

Hope this helped.
Take care and good luck

DCS T70 LCD does work properly .I mean to say if i try to use one function another function gets started instead of desired function


Hi,

Based on the information you've provided, it seems that the touch screen panel is not aligned. You can try Calibrating the touch screen to resolve the issue.
Calibration option is in the Main Settings 1 Menu of the Camera. Calibration option enables you to perform calibration when the touch panel buttons do not react at the appropriate points where you touch. You can use the paint pen, touch the X mark displayed on the screen. The X mark moves on the screen. Once the calibration option is finished successfully, the touch screen should work.
The Calibration option can be done only if the Menu is accessible.
You can also perform a power reset before performing the Calibration.

Performing a manual power reset

Turn off the camera.

Remove the battery pack.

Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.

Reinsert the battery pack.

Turn on the camera.
This should resolve the issue.


Thanks for using Fixya.

OK..your touch screen was jammed or not working and you did reset via code *2767*3855# then the phone restarted with the calibration cross....you tapped the cross but nothing is happening.......what to do? first shutdown the phone remove the battery for 30 sec also remove the simcard put the battery again start the phone when the calibration screen pops up tap on the cross here you must feel the tapping is working by feeling a light vibration of the phone.....then tap on the lower bar of the screen which has color (light gray) different than the calibration screen the cross will move to another corner......repeat this for all four corners then you should see and OK on the bar to save and exit to the normal screen........done

My touch screen stopped working on my samsung impression so i put the rest code in and the phone reset then its now stuck on the calibration screen and the touch screen wont respond


Dont kno if "Impression" is similar to "Omnia" but 'REMOTE SCREEN ALIGNMENT' program installed on PC skips 'align screen' on your phone. Also "welcome.not" (made in notepad) & pasted into your root files. A REGISTRY EDITOR will allow you to input the touchscreen configuration numbers manually. Of course, none of these will be much good if you dont have 'Windows" phone or cant access your Registry!!

If all this fails, ASK 'XDA DEVELOPERS', or 'MoDaCo'.

Impression touch screen is not calibrated and i cannot get to the main menu


go into:
menu, settings, phone, calibration

that how to calibrate it .... even after calibrating it if you still cant navigate to the main menu

All you do is get your vaccuum the handheld part and just go thru the edges as it **** out all dirt and water particles that may exist. It only takes about a minute. After you **** the screen and the back of the phone without taking out the battery the calibration should work again!

If it still doesnt work
turn the phone upside down and drag your finger across the button. I guess what had happened is you used it so much the sensor got pushed down in the black part where it says SAMSUNG.

If it still wont help.... its better to have it checked for any internal component failure.

I cant acess my setting to calibrate my phone. When i touch the menu button it acts like Im touching the center of the screen. When I try to dial the number using the touch screen it doesnt dial the number...


Ok there might be a battery issue. Or there might need to be a touch calibration reset. To do that go to your settings and select touch calibration and do it again.

ALSO IF YOUR PHONE IS STILL IN WARRENTY AKA WITHIN 1 YEAR OF PURCHASE THEN CALL 1800 801 1101. THEY WILL HELP YOU. YOU WILL NEED YOUR IMEI NUMBER OFF THE BACK OF THE PHONE. IF NOT CALL THE INSURANCE HOTLINE WHICH IS ON THE AT&T WEBSITE.
