E115 Screen Replacement?

My E115 has had such heavy use, without a screen protector, that the area I use the stylus on is now badly scratched. Is there a way that the screen can be replaced? I can't immediately see how to lift the front off to replace the screen, nor where to purchase a new screen from, so I suspect I can't, but can someone confirm it for me. Please note that I live in New Zealand so giving the machine to a Casio shop to fix is not an option (at least that I can see). Thank you in advance.

Re: E115 Screen Replacement?

Actually you don't need anytools at all except a very good quality Jewellers's #1 Phillips screw driver - "Stanley" matches perfectly. Once you have the 4 screws removed hold firmly & press the back inwards between the esc key & the IR lens. Once this tab is released the rest will come off just by jiggling a bit. Gently lift the back off like opening a book. It should come out effortlessly. Don't use any undue force or any other tools to pry open the back.

Re: E115 Screen Replacement?

I believe if you are hardy with this sort of thing you can order a new touch pad from Global Products or www.pacparts.com. The e-115 , e125 and others all the same. Mine is coming from Global now item # 10003145 @ $28.00 I believe. I will know more when mine arrives. The case is not to hard to crack open just be careful. Once the case is open and motherboard freed turn the mb. over from case. The touch pad removes very easily one ribbon connector and one tape. Tear down pictures @ www.hi-pda.com/usercomment/001215/1.jpg. Be careful to have static band or discharge don't touch except edges and plastic of compact flash. It will take a little work but it is the cheap way. Dick

BOTTOM OF SCREEN NOT WORKING,


This happens a lot with Palm digitizers. The only permanent solution is replace the plastic digitizer with an upgraded glass type. Before considering that, see if removing screen protector helps. (yeah, didn't think so. Worth a try!) Try Powerdigi, a better calibration program. Get it from http://www.palmpowerups.com
It worked for me.

dont know about replacement but someone I know had a bottle of CD scratch remover and tried it one day, it worked wonders. They also confirmed that McGuiers plastic polish does an amazing job. Take your time, apply multiple times, and use a lint free sunglass wipe to apply and buff with.

Screen problem


Sometimes 3rd party apps that don't work so well with the palms can freeze them up.

You could do a hard reset and when you initially sync the palm, when it asks you for a profile choose a new one and see if this method removes your problem.

Does the calibrator keep looping or not seem to work?
If you can access the calibrator, but it loops through the target sequence (repeatedly asking you to tap the targets), there may be a physical problem that's causing your touchscreen to be confused:
  • Do you use an adhesive screen protector? A screen protector which is trapped under the screen edge may interfere with touchscreen calibration. Occasionally, just having the screen protector on the screen can cause the issue. Try removing the screen protector.
  • You may have debris trapped under the edge of the screen. Use the corner of a piece of thin, stiff paper (copier paper works well) to very gently slide all around the edge of the screen. Don't let the corner of the paper travel more than an eighth of an inch under the screen edge frame. By doing this, you may be able to dislodge small particles of debris trapped under the frame.
  • A heavy impact or scrape to the touchscreen can cause permanent damage. If your touchscreen is damaged, you may need a repair

Screen not responding to touch


Solved same problem.
Same model ipaq 1940.
Sorry for my bad english;this is what You can do:
Open the ipaq
Remove the mainboard
My problem was the connection between LCD and Touchscreen.
So I solved putting on the connection 3cm of tape to have a fully working contact.Indeed, the lower part of cable, with the 2 little holes was disconnected.
After this all becames to life!
I hope helps!

In italiano: 3 cm di nastro adesivo fra LCD e touchscreen.Il loro contatto non era perfetto.Ora tutto funziona.Con un po' di manualità si riesce a fare senza problemi!
Saluti, Vit

Firstly this depends on whether the touch screen is cracked or just the outer layer is scratched badly.  If you see cracked glass or a liquid in the screen then the touch screen is broken. I have personally had this happen to one of my PDAs and after doing some research www.ipaqrepair.co.uk is the best bet for getting an ipaq repaired reliably.  However touch screens are very expensive.  I just looked at the site and a new screen for your PDA is $227.  I believe that is the price just for the part but not totally sure.  Your best bet would either be replace it yourself maybe buying a broken PDA of the same screen type on ebay and try to replace it yourself (which is very difficult) or just upgrade and buy a new PDA.  However no matter what happens I strongly suggest buying an aluminum case.  They are relatively cheap and will save you in the long run.  The invisible screen protectors are nice as well against scratching.  If you have any questions don't be afraid to contact me.  And by the way this is my first post so any feedback would be great reguardless.

do you have a screen protector? if so, i suggest checking to see if there is anything caught between it and the screen. there might be a speck of dirt or whatever that is causing that. also check for dirt accumulating around the edges.. hope that helps. good luck

Screen Protectors


When you apply the screen protector, try to flatten it out with a CC as you apply it.

Replaced my Casio E115 screen - now touchscreen doesn't work!


There are 2 things you have to check for. The touch screen was changed in the middle of production run. The flexible connector & the corresponding socket on the main board were inverted. In other words the exposed track side was moved from upper to lower side. The older type of touch scrteen is no longer available. Casio made the socket available to their service centre to change in on the main board to suit the newer type of touch screen. If this is the case you will have to get the newer type touch screen to suit the E-115. The second aspect is that there are 4 self adhesive spacer tapes (approximately 3 mm x 80 mm x 0.5mm thick on the long side & 3 mm x 60 mm x .5 mm on ythe short side) on the periphery of the LCD. This is to keep the touch screen from touching the LCD. This is to prevent Newton's rings as also to prevent malfunction of the touch screen. These are an absolute must. Other than that the touch screens are absolutely the same. Hope this helps.
