    Have you tried recalibrating the touch screen? Maybe the screen has gone bad or the internal flex cable has come loose.

    Make & model?

I have an older lg.wen I txt, I can't get 1 letter at a time

Besides the fact that you should get rid of that ancient device as they make life difficult lol you have to change the settings from t9.
When you are in the texting area you only have to hit the right key to change from t9 to Alphabet (not sure it's the exact spelling for t9 but one of the keys (usually bottom left or top left corner will allow you to type normal or to guess words by what you type, some of which can be confusing.)
for the letter e you have to push the 2 key 3 times I believe, if you keep pressing each key you will see different letters, numbers and symbols, perhaps a Users manual is available online (can google it, is available to tell you how to change the texting type.
Dunno this helps but it's so old I cant recall exact details but that's the gist of it.

Reset did not work. Still cannot enter state. When I hit spell state the gps responds no matches found. When I hit back - the alphabet appears but as soon as i hit a letter the GPS responds no matches...

The problem may be because the text language is British English. To be able to enter a state it must be in American English. To change to American English follow the instructions below;
  1. On the 'Main Menu' press the 'Settings' icon.
  2. Select the 'Locale' icon.
  3. Change the 'Text Language' to 'American English'.
  4. The unit will now allow 'States' to be entered.

You will most likely need a firmware upgrade from this website to fix the problem:
It will walk you through the steps and your letters should be back to normal after the update.

Tomtom 730 cannot enter address with a letter such as 2N124 If I enter just 124 I do not get the correct location. I can enter this on a Magellian gps and it works.

When you're typing the address, at the bottom of the onscreen keyboard is a button that toggles the alphanumeric characters from the alphabet to the numeric keypad. That should allow you to type in numbers and letters as needed.

Does that solve your problem?

How to "shift" to letters instead of numbers?

Did you try to use the "alpha key"? Press the number key that has the letter you need, then keep pressing the alpha key to get the letter you need.

Garmin nuvi 200w my alphabet is sometimes missing letters. what do i do?

I just this moment resolved this problem with Garmin's Tech Support. Here's what to do:

1. Turn off your NUVI.
2. Find a standard USB cable with a mini connector on one end.
3. Connect the NUVI to a booted computer (I did this with a Windows computer) and let the computer recognize the GPS as a MASS STORAGE DEVICE.
4. AFTER the Nuvi has been recognized as a hard drive, correctly disconnect the GPS from the computer.
5. The Nuvi will turn on in locked mode. Follow the on screen instructions to unlock it.

Your problem should be resolved. The technician I spoke to said that this procedure fixes the problem 99% of the time.

Good luck.
