Screen won't react to touch

My Palm 515 won't respond to any attempt to use the touch screen. It hasn't been dropped, and why, even when using pressure with the stylus I can get no response. I've tried to reset, and even did a hard reset, but no use. Any ideas?

TIA!

    My palm m515 logo keeps blinking and can not reset. When the screen says push up button or down button or any button, it just goes back to the logo blinking. What's the problem?

    My Palm 515 screen touch pad doesn't work properly. When I press abc , 123 , clock or Calculator something else work. This means when I type v in Alphanumeric then i get displayed on screen.

    m515 Touch screen will not respond.  Has not been dropped. will not sync.  Fatal error message comes up.  Tried soft reset several times, then several hard resets.  Screen comes up wanting to tap the corners but does not respond to touch.  Touch screen seems completely dead.

SOURCE: Touch screen

You may have dust accumulation around the edges of your touchscreen, between the screen and the case. Try using a can of compressed air. Gently press down on the edges of the touchscreen to expose the gap between the screen and the case, and shoot the air in there. This worked for me when my Treo 600 touchscreen stopped responding.

try to open the case, clean the screen and the small frame carefully, reinstall and... good luck, mine worked this way.

My ipod screen is cracked and and a couple weeks ago it got dropped while it was raining now the screen won't react to my touch


Your Ipod needs repairing. Take it to an Apple repairer and get a quote. If the repair is too high then put your money towards a new Ipod.

Touch screen would not respond


HI,
Here is a link to get you to the Palm support page. You can do a phone call to the but it will cost you $25. There is also a chat feature and that looks like it is free so hopefully that will help.
Best wishes.

Does not respond to stylus


Try recalibrating the touch screen. Devices with touch screens need to be recalibrated in order to respond properly. The greater the use, the more often recalibration is necessary. I recalibrate my phone once a week. I hope this helps.

Touch screen on lg ku990 seems slow


they reckon if it has a screen protector on it it is "slower" to respond. So if you do have one off... remove it. but yes I do believe my touch screen is abit delayed even without a screen protector :(

Touchscreen does not respond to touch


This is straight from Palm Support...
1.Press and hold the UP button on the front panel of your device.

2.While holding the UP button, use an unfolded paper clip, or the reset tool at the tip of your stylus, to gently press the RESET button inside the hole on the back of your device


3.The Palm Computing Platform screen will appear. Release the UP button when you see it.

Screen orientation


PDAs that use touch screens have a very thin membrane over the screen itself that responds to pressure. If this membrane becomes damaged, which it sounds like what has happened, then you're more than likely going to need to have it replaced. You can try doing it yourself, but it's WAY up on the difficulty factor because of the complexity of the connection to the circuit board on the Vx.
To determine if your unit is, in fact, actually damaged, you should first make sure that you've syncronized the unit (which may not be possible if you don't have it set to automatically activate HotSync when the device is attached) then do a "hard reset" to restore it to the factory default. To do this, hold the reset button while simultaneously holding the power button for, at least, three seconds. You will get a message asking you to press up on the control pad to reset to factory defaults. Once the unit is reset, try the screen again... touching even the outer areas to see if there's any response. If it reacts, or beeps at all, then it may be an issue of recalibrating (using the "Digitizer") once it's fully reset. If not, it will need repair/replacement.
