    This just started to happen to mine as well. I hope this doesn't mean the end of the unit. I really like this unit. If it is, does anyone know of a way to pass data from one to another?

It is my understanding that when this happens to your screen, its done, over, trash, use to be, gone, finished, time to go shoping for another, the end.

I have a HTC 6800 that started acting funny about a week ago. At first the screen got lines across it when I would open the keyboard, then after a couple of days the srceen just froze when the keyboard was...

I had this same problem, there is a thin line of wires connecting the bottom half and top half of the sliders, after awhile it just plain wears out and will generally crack, without these wire anything on the front of your phone will no longer work. The screen is black but stil lights up a little bit and occasionally the buttons light up but its pretty much toast I'm sorry to say. I upgraded to a HTC Touch Pro 2 and am happier than ever!

I cannot get past the align screen page is there a way of bypassing it?

If it just keeps asking you to calibrate, then that means the touch screen is faulty.

My o2 mobile screen not align model no. o2 [xda2s]

sounds like a faulty touch panel or if you have dropped it i know sometimes the casing bends and presses on the screen i have done many of these they are not easy to repair if you have to replace just the touch panel. but the casing can be pulled away from the screen. look around the front of the pda the corners are week and do bend in if there has been impact to the top or bottom corners.

This sounds like a faulty BB or the battery is faulty. Try replacing the battery first if not then try latest firmware, if that doesn't work the new BB device.

My Palm TX device is not initializing. it says "palm powered" then a loading bar starts at the bottom of the screen, then it turns off...and it repeats the same thing over and over again.

Have you tried a hard reset? In case you need to know how...Hold Power button on Top of Palm down, then press reset button, then release reset button and continue to hold power button down until second Palm logo comes on screen and progress bar at the bottom of screen completes. If you release the power button and it asks which language you want to use you have done this correctly.

Dropped PDA

First of all, you must dissasemble the pda if you have some experience with that. There are some possible problems, one regarding the display connector to the motherboard and the other to the motherboard itself.Probably the display connector isn't atached firmly to the motherboard. There is a worse scenario where you may accidentaly burned some dc convertors on the mainboard when attemting to power on after the pda was dropped. If you can, dissasemble the pda, check the connectors, remove and reconect the back-up battery, and then, just to be shure, perform a hard reset.

Problem with allignment

Markins- You should work for Dell. I called them several weeks ago about this problem, and they were quick to tell me that is was not in warranty any more so there was nothing they could do. I found your posting and I did exactly as you stated. My X5 hasn't worked this well in months. I sure wish Dell would pass this info on, but I guess there are a lot of people that just buy a new on.......Thanks for your help! Quote: Originally Posted by Markins This is a post I made a few days ago on the Dell Axim Forum. I still have'nt had any problems since I made the repair. ************************* I had this problem for about 6 months. I was able to work around it by pressing in on the sides. The problem progressively got worse, so I decided to open it up and see what was going on. This is what I found: The touch screen lays on top of the display screen. At the bottom of the touch screen, directly below the "Inbox Button", there is a flex cable (flat mylar with conductors). I found that the contacts from the button had scratch through the mylar on the flex cable and would short out. I suppose this would scramble the decoding from the touch screen. To correct the problem, I cut a small piece of electrical tape and laid it across the damaged area on the flex cable. I reassembled it using just the screws (I left the rubber sides and feet off) and tested it. After I was sure it was working correctly, I finished assembling it. You can find detailed disassembly instructions on the web by doing a search for X5 screen replacements. The procedure isn't that difficult, just be careful when you remove the rubber sides and feet to lift them slowly and try to keep the glue stuck to the rubber (this makes reassembly much easier). Quick instruction: 1. Do a complete backup of your unit (you will loose all your data). 2. Remove both batteries and any cards. 3. Remove the rubber feet, sides and plugs at the bottom back. 4. Remove 6 screws from the back. 5. You should be able to remove the back of the unit. 6. Unplug the speaker cable (pull straight up on the plug). 7. Lift the motherboard and screen away from the front cover. 8. Make your repair. 9. Reassemble in reverse order. Hope this works for you, I did this about a week ago and haven?t had a problem since.
