Question about Video Game Consoles
The touch screen can be picky. If dust or dirt get under the edges (between the case and the screen, it can throw off the calibration. It will act as though the screen is being pressed slightly further to the side with the dirt.
Go to the User Name screen and try touching each key on the "typewriter" keyboard. Notice which ones are off and by how much. If it's off to the right, you probably have some dirt under the right edge. Hold that side up and press gently on the screen (with the power off) use a clean, small brush with hard bristles (like a toothbrush) and try to get a couple of bristles under to clean it. Recalibrate or check the "keyboard"- touch line-up again.
Don't smash it as some suggest. You may have to try this more than once.
