Lexmark X5500 MFP Touchscreen Calibration not possible
I got a problem with a Lexmark X5500 MFP Option.
From one day to the other the touchscreen was "decalibrated", means you have to tip one button to th eleft to get the richt one (about half an inch).
I thought that'll be no problem, just calibrate again.
So I got into the menu (over the key button) to touchscreen calibration, to push the twelve points. But I'm not able to push the three left ones, evereytime I try I get three beeps (3 short beeps), means error.
So I tried to reset the MFP to feactory defaults, by service menu **411, but it hasn't made any change to the touchscreen problem.
Any idea would be highly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

You have not said what model garmin nuvi ?
The touchscreen on a Garmin nuvi GPS usually loses
sensitivity or stops responding if it's lost calibration.
This usually happens after prolonged usage.
Touchscreen problems are also caused by dirt, smudges and
If your Garmin nuvi's screen isn't performing as expected,
Garmin provides solutions and tips to not only improve the device's
performance, but prevent premature wear and tear. Calibrating the Screen
If the Garmin nuvi's touchscreen isn't working, you need
to calibrate the screen.
Calibration resets and repositions the screen for optimal
performance without deleting saved settings.
Before calibrating the screen, press and hold the
"Power" button to turn off the device.
Pressing and holding the "Power" button again for
about 30 seconds automatically displays the calibration screen.
Pressing the dot on the white screen calibrates the
If The Garmin nuvi's touchscreen is still unresponsive,
updating the device's firmware to the latest version can solve operating system
problems that lead to touchscreen problems.
Before updating the device's firmware, connect the GPS to
the computer using the USB cable. When the computer detects the GPS, the
"AutoPlay" menu appears on the screen.
Tapping the arrow on the menu automatically opens the
"myGarmin Agent" download page.
From there, follow the prompts to update your Garmin nuvi's
software quickly and safely.
In some cases, the Garmin nuvi's touchscreen won't respond
to touch if the screen is dirty. Touchscreens are sensitive to dirt and smudges
that decrease sensitivity.
If the screen is dirty, cleaning it with a soft, clean,
lint-free cloth improves performance.
If the screen is severely dirty, using water, isopropyl
alcohol or eyeglass cleaner removes tough stains.
To avoid damaging the screen, apply liquid to a cloth
instead of directly to the touchscreen before cleaning it.
Refer to your Garmin nuvi's maintenance and storage
information found on the device's manual prevents premature wear and tear.
If the screen stopped working after prolonged exposure to
extreme temperatures or water, the device's hardware is most likely damaged.
In such a case, you need to contact Garmin for additional
troubleshooting and possible repairs.
Attempting to disassemble and repair the GPS
yourself only increases the risk of damaging the unit even further. also it could be a battery problem if the nuvi is not getting power ?
Sounds like the calibration for the touchscreen needs to be reset. If you check in the control panel, there should be a ELO shortcut that allows you to calibrate/test the touchscreen. Try running through the calibration and see if the touchscreen behavior improves. If the calibration doesn't fix it, then you may have an issue with the touchscreen itself.
Turn the power on and immediately press 1 or 2 repeatedly.Continue until the following message appears:Press the # button to perform disk maintenance (35+ minutes). Otherwise,press the green start button to continue.
Press # to begin the disk refresh process.This process may take as more than 30 minutes, but frequently only takes 10-15minutes. A message will appear on the screen indicating the refresh is in progress.
If problem continues:
Try dial **411
Select 4 MFP settings
Select 1 Restore Factory Defaults
If still problem continues, I strongly suggest you contact Lexmark technical support or an authorized service provider for further assistance. Thank you for choosing Lexmark.
Hello Dean, and good evening. I understand the issue you are having and I'm here to help. From the way you said it stopped responding, it sounds like it could have possible froze, or something is internally wrong with it. If it didn't freeze I would contact Nintendo about this problem, and possibly get a refund, or mail it in and receive a new one. Hope this helped! Have a great day!
