I would say you will need more than calibration , you will probably need a new touch screen. The hot sun has probably distorted the touch screen which is why it no longer responds correctly

How do I make it go full screen


There is going to be a setting in your television menu under display or video. You will have multiple choices and the most effective is automatically select but the second choice would be Cinerama.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 255 GPS and the touch screen will not respond to touch, How do i fix?


Try recalibrating the screen with this procedure. If you can not calibrate the screen, then the touchscreen will need to be replaced.

Nuvi 2xx/2xxW Series: Turn the Nuvi off. Place your finger on the upper left-hand corner of the screen and then slide the on/off power switch to the left and hold until you see the calibration screen.

I have a tcm 217362 watch with a digital compass how can i set it up to show me north it currently shows cal. and when i press the top right and left button it shows err.(probably error) it is a black and...


Hi john30x,

You have to calibrate the compass.
1. Press the upper right button (switching to compass mode)
2. Press and hold upper left button. The "CALL" will appear on the display. You are in compass calibrating mode.
3. Rotate the watch horizontally (around his vertical axis) slowly, so to be sure that he point the North at least 2 times.
4. Now press the upper left button again to input the
declination (this is the angle between the magnetic and real pole). It is different for the area around the world, that you want to explore.
5. Switch between the positions of the cipher by pressing bottom left.
6. Change the cipher by pressing bottom right.
7.
Switch between the active position by pressing bottom left. Now you have to enter East or West declination
8. If you are ready press the upper left. "END" of calibration will appear on the screen

Once you calibrate and set the declination you can use the the compass by pressing upper right button. As the compass is very sensitive It is good idea to calibrate it on a field, far away of metal objects and electromagnetic fields (cables, ect.). You need to calibrate the compass each time you want to use it by different surrounding.

Remember the compass function of your watch need much more energy than the watch itself. Don`t worry to change the battery when dead. The water resistance remains good even after. Very robust and accurate device. I hope that should help.

I have leapster l-max and am having trouble with the stylus working. when i try to calibrate, i can't click on center targets


Leapster L-Max recalibrates differently. I was trying to use the instructions and it kept asking for a blue button. For the Leapster L-Max push B, A, Hint, and Home when you turn it on. Do not have a cartridge in the player or it will think it is a regular Leapster. Once it says calibrate screen it will say to press A, then wait until a target appears in the upper left hand corner, touch it and you should hear a sound, then a new target appears in the lower left hand, repeat actions, then lower right hand screen, and finally the upper right hand screen. If it stops at any time and doesn't get more arrows, try it again or turn it off and see if the pen works. It may take several times to get it working again.
