Water in the touchscreen

Some water got into the touchscreen. I wanted to set it up again but the touchscreen doesn't seem to be responsive any more. Is there any way to fix this?

Re: Water in the touchscreen

The only thing I can think of is to remove the battery, then use a blowdryer on low heat to help evaporate any water still remaining in it before it causes any more damage. Once you think it's completely dry, pop the battery back (after drying it off) in and try to turn it on. (Note: Don't risk plugging it in for a charge for a while, as electricity and water don't usually mix.) If it turns on but the screen doesn't work, you can still recover any data on it, followed by the option of having the screen repaired or replace the PDA. If it doesn't turn on at all, pray you have a backup of the data.

G900 touchscreen not working


Alright, i know this is old, but i hope i can help those guys/gals, i recently bought the phone and i had this problem too, i dont know if it will work, but its worth a try, when i tried everything, i started losing hope, but i tried knocking the phone on something soft like a towel or the bed mattress, then it works wonderously, and i heard some people accidentally dropped their phone on the ground etc, and it works like normal again... although i would never recommend dropping the phone on hard surfaces, just try knocking on your bed mattress (do not EVER knock on the metal area, im not responsible for any damages), or put a towel on your lap and knock it few times with the screen face down (of course, just knock slowly, dont put too much pressure...) hope this helps!, and sorry for the long phrase of boringness!

Try a soft reset.
If it does not work, sorry but you'll have to go for a hard-reset.

if this solves the problem.

My tytn ii touch screen is not responding


I have had the same problem but have finally got past the alignment screen by putting a new text document called welcome.not onto the memory card. At least the phone is working now, but the screen is not. HTC have sent me the phone back wanting £360 because they say it is water damaged even though it is less than 12 months old.

Sprint/utc 6700 - touchscreen won't work


My suggestion if you have Sprint, go to their corporate store. They charged me $35 for a new phone. I did not have their $7 a month warrenty... but I do now. The only thing they will not do is replace the phone if it was in water.
Good luck

Hi em having a sreen clicking problem plzzzzzzzzzzzz plzz plzz help me out i would be thankful


Hello navz, The problem is pretty obvious - a screen aligment problem. Don't try to open the phone, the display block is closed alltogheter and you woun't be able to do much. Maybe only check the display connector to the main board. Here's why you have this problem. The display is composed of 2 parts. The TFT display (the one wich shows the image) and the digitalizer - touchscreen (the one you actually press on). Those 2 aren't linked togheter physically. They are separated so the phone doesn't actually know what you press on the display and what is actually underneath, on the TFT display. In order to have it know this you are supposed to make a display callibration (screen alligment). Try to find this in your menu if possible, if not, you need to hard reset your phone and rewrite the operating system (reflash the phone). A service center may be able to assist you with that for a small fee. But first try yourself to find the screen alligment or calibration option under settings in your menu. Then press on the small dots that appear on the screen, then your phone will know how to operate the touchscreen. If you need more info please contact me on the live chat feature of this site. Hope this helps.
