Have you dropped it alot?
I dont think this is a software problem, its definately hardware.
For your sake i hope im wrong, but if im right you'll need to change it out.
You can get replacement touchscreens on ebay and theyre pretty simple to change if your electrical minded. Hardest part is opening the iphone without damaging the back casing.

I opended mine and damaged it the first time. Needed to get a replacement on ebay, lol

Need help with unlocking phone ,keeps staying on one screen and keeps talking can"t operate phone


What kind of phone? If the battery can be removed try that. Is it new or was bought used? Almost sounds like a bad touch screen or corrupted operating system.

9 sciphone. the screen, has barely any function. the part where to slide to unlock, i can't get it to slide. somtime it will slide but then it won't unlock.


Hi, The touch pad on your screen is weak and does not function properly again, that is why you can unlock from the sceen. Needs to be replaced, it happens most times when a phone drop the flow or hits somewhere.

The only solution is to replace it with a new one.Thank you.

Take care.

I just got a new i68 and it wont unlock.


try calibrating your touch screen. Please use the stylus to calibrate!
The fastest way is to be on the slide-lock screen & hold the side volume button in the Up position until
"Press volume down key to check" comes up onscreen. This may or may not work on all firmware versions
on the current i9, but works on most. Make sure to hold the button firmly in the Up position. You will first
see the normal volume speaker icon show onscreen and the volume rise, but just keep holding it Up, and
eventually you should see the pop-up box noted earlier. The moment you see that pop up onscreen,
immediately press the side volume button in the down position. A white calibration screen should now
show & you can calibrate the touch screen using the stylus. Try to tap as close to the center of the little
pulsating icons as possible, as this will more accurately calibrate your touch screen. If the calibration
screen didn't come up using that method, then you can get to it from the Main menu screen.
Select "Settings", then select "Pen calibration", & follow the previous instruction.

Cect i9 slide to unlock will not open


THIS WORKED FOR US: Hold down the power button until you see the "CANCEL" icon; tap around the screen until the "CANCEL" button turns blue - this will take you back to the slide feature. MAKE NOTE OF WHERE THIS SPOT IS ON THE SCREEN. Repeat the "cancel-screentap" process to find a 2nd spot in another area of the screen. While on the "slide" screen, draw a line between the 2 spots; when you return again to the "slide" screen, the "slide" should work.

ONCE YOU HAVE OPENED THE PHONE do 2 things:
  1. RECALIBRATE the screen
  2. LENGTHEN the screen saver time-out to something other than the shortest time available.

Hope this works for you - GOOD LUCK!
