    My LG touchscreen sticks whenever I have a message for new e-mail and then a text comes in. It goes completely blank and I have to wait till a new e-mail comes in to be able to access anything on the phone.

I have the same problem. But i had solved it. I use a lighter to burn on my viewty's touch screen, and it is working properly again within 30 secs. And ofcourse, do not burn the touch screen without a screen protector. Hope this solution would help.

I have the same issue! I've had my LG KU990 for a year now from today, and only yesterday it stopped working! It turns on perfectly, but when i try to touch something nothing happens, and when i take a picture i touch the top right hand corner and it simply goes off screen. So it still has the touch sensitivity in 2 places, last calls & messed up buttons. I havent got it wet. It just seems after i connected it with the cable to put my pictures onto my laptop it went completely a-wall! Help. D:

How do i get icons offmy main screen on lg viewty?

If you mean the group of 9 icons grouped together on the opening screen, just "swipe" the touchscreen beneath the icon box ( in either direction) and it should change back to the normal opening screen. This is reversable if desired. Hope this helps.

LG KU990, touchscreen not responsible or not recognise

i have the same problem. i opened up my phone and saw a tiny chip thing right behind the screen fried. im thinking it happened because moisture got into the phone. moisture gets into your phone when you take a shower and leave your phone on the sink or something.

Touch sensitive screen not working

I found a solution for the LG KU990 Viewty touchscreen not responding problem. After thinking about twisting my phone, I came up with another solution which actually works every time. The touchscreen works via layers of plastic that when contact is made, a signal is triggered from the coordinates of the contact. However, when the phone has pressure, these layers of plastic stick together somehow. So, to fix it.... Get a small strip of adhesive tape that will not leave a sticky residue on your screen. Apply that tape in several spots on the surface of the screen, and lift it away from the phone with light pressure. Repeat this in several areas of the screen. That's it. You're done. Your screen should function properly. Simply recalibrate the touchscreen at this point in your settings menu. I hope it helps everyone with any type of touchscreen. I know it helped me. The touchscreen phones are totally useless using only the hard keys!
