Touch screen is pretty scratched up. Is there a solution to repair it? I looked into replacing it but it looks very complicated to do by self. Thanks.

You do know if you have bought the ds from a games shop and had it less than 12 months you can get a free replacement no matter how many scratches or even a free repair, so if you do get a replacement go on ebay and get yourself some touch screen guards/protector, they only cost 99p most of them are free post and packaging, i hope this is of any use

Husqvarna topaz 20 touch screen beeps after I load embroidery file and then will not respond to touch

These are very complicated machines. Look for a shop that will help you know it need repair. If you are not following the correct steps to get the machine to sew, it may not need a repair, but operational errors are being made? I work with a shop that will diagnose for no charge. look for a better repair shop.

I have an LG Versa. I scratched the screen on it.

If you took your phone in to verizon they would tell you you have to have it sent in for repairs as this is a very technical job. Since you used the word scratched and not cracked, you can try to buff the scratch out by purchasing some vehicle scratch remover and working it over the screen with a a cloth and then buffing it with a lint free one. The deeper the scratch the more work it will take, but it is pretty much sanding the screen on a fine level. And you will see results that surprise you.
It may sound awkward but if you do not have a warranty that will cover it then you have nothing to lose but the scratch. Set the phone on a flat surface witch cloth beneath it to prevent scratching the back up, and remove the keypad and put on the plastic backing that covers the battery. You want to use a smooth cloth, not like a sock due to the ruffles in it. Take your time and this works for car stereo screens and even headlights if you have the elbow grease.
If Verizon will not repair it have a go and if anything the scratch will definitely be alot smaller if it is a gash. 3M makes good rubbing compound so try them. Five bucks of a nice screen is worth it and purchase the screen protector as well for future technicalities.
Good luck an Happy holidays.

Firstly this depends on whether the touch screen is cracked or just the outer layer is scratched badly.  If you see cracked glass or a liquid in the screen then the touch screen is broken. I have personally had this happen to one of my PDAs and after doing some research is the best bet for getting an ipaq repaired reliably.  However touch screens are very expensive.  I just looked at the site and a new screen for your PDA is $227.  I believe that is the price just for the part but not totally sure.  Your best bet would either be replace it yourself maybe buying a broken PDA of the same screen type on ebay and try to replace it yourself (which is very difficult) or just upgrade and buy a new PDA.  However no matter what happens I strongly suggest buying an aluminum case.  They are relatively cheap and will save you in the long run.  The invisible screen protectors are nice as well against scratching.  If you have any questions don't be afraid to contact me.  And by the way this is my first post so any feedback would be great reguardless.

Vertical Line of Blue Down 1/2 an inch from center screen

Usualy a problem with the LCD screen itself, that takes replacing the whole screen to fix. Sorry. Did you know that it had a problem when you bought it? Could also be an internal connector that has gone bad. There are tiny transistors on most displays that control whole rows and columns. It sounds like one went bad, causing a dead, or constant on, column. Unless you are REALLY handy, it will probably need to go to a service center for repair, which could be more expensive then what you paid for the player. Good luck
