It sounds like you only broke the outer layer, digitizer, which takes the stylus inputs. If the screen still shows properly, then your LCD screen is not broken.

I don't know about replacing the LCD screen, but to replace the digitizer, ebay the search words (axim, x5, digitizer) and find a $15 or so replacement.

Then follow these steps:

Cracked screen

Usually it's just the "Digitizer" that needs to get replaced. If you can read everything on the screen (no LARGE areas of just black) then the LCD panel is still OK.

My touch screen is not right. If you use the stylus and touch the center, it will say you touched about a centimeter away from where you really did.

You need to recalibrate it. You can do that by taking out all games and booting it. Use your thumbpad to navigate to the calibrate option since the screen/stylus the problem.

I-mate prob.

First you should make a reset by pushing the button at the base of the phone close to the mouth piece.Then get some sort of stylus maybe from another phone and go to the phone settings and navigate through to the phone display option, where you have the option of realligning your screen.Follow the instructions there and then go and get another stylus for your phone.Your thumb sweat is not touchscreen friendly!

Screen does not react to the stylus when touching on found object

You could try calibrating the screen. To do this, you must go to the little DS in the center of the screen when you turn the DS on. Then touch the yellow square on the far right. It should give you instructions from that point on. Make sure that your stylus doesn't have a scratch on it! If it has a little nick down the middle, then your screen might not get a clear reading as to what you touched.

Hope it helps~

Cracked screen will not allow me to move from screen to screen. I can get to main menu but screen will not allow me to press and move to next screen/menu.

This unit can be repair only by the manufacture or a 3rd party that repairs them, They will put in a new touch screen the cost may be more then you can get a new unit for due to GPS pricing going way down.

thanks for your free question

When i do hard reset hx2490b screen calibration does not appear

Try using your finger to calibrate the screen at first. (If you have difficult to navigate to the alignment screen use the stylus & keyboard to feel out your way) when calibrated to an accepable degree use the stylus to calibrate the sreen, if the target doesn't respond to stylus at any specific piont use your finger. Continue this process till u get it aligned as best as possible. I suspect this problem is caused by specific points on the screen going bad.
