    My problem is with a Palm TX & not exactly the same except that it sounds like it might be the digitizer, the sandwhich screen which when tapped touches the other side communicating whatever you've input on the screen to the PDA's motherboard.

    In simple terms, shop around on the internet to get some information as to what your options are to get it repaired or order the parts & repair it yourself. My TX at one time or perhaps still does, retails new at $300 US or $180 US for a refurbished unit. I have no idea what your unit would cost new, refurbished or repaired.

    Good luck.

Your digitizer might be dead, and if so the cost to repair it could buy you a whole new PDA. But since it's fix or chuck(if you don't get any better advice), you should open it up and take a look inside. Check to see if the wires aren't loose or if some corrosion didn't occur inside. Good luck

Digitizer doesnt work

The Apple iPod is a handy device for listening to your favorite music, but mechanical issues can lead to frustration.

In particular, one problem you may encounter is a touch screen that ceases to function, whether completely or only on certain portions of the screen.

In some cases, a simple fix can solve the problem, while in others, a malfunctioning touch screen may be the sign of a more serious issue.Moisture

Moisture on your fingertips can cause an iPod touch screen to function erratically or not at all. Foreign substances such as hand lotion can also impact the touch screen.
A good practice is to thoroughly wash and dry your hands before using the device.
Wiping the screen with a microfiber polishing cloth can remove any debris accumulated on the touch screen, allowing for the direct fingertip contact necessary for proper functioning.
Barriers

Using a plastic sheet to cover the touch screen provides protection against dirt and smudges. However, the plastic can also create a barrier that prevents essential fingertip contact, especially if it is old and dirty.

Removing the plastic allows you to test the screen to see if it is hindering operation.
Wearing gloves when using your iPod may also inhibit the necessary screen contact, so removing them may also provide a remedy.

Ending Application If your iPod's touch screen freezes or becomes unresponsive when using a specific application, simply restarting the application may solve the problem.

First shut down the application; if this doesn't work, shut down the unit completely and then restart it.
Dead Spots
Instead of a completely unresponsive screen, you may experience difficulty only in specific areas. These "dead spots" are often the result of malfunctioning pixels, which are the components that comprise a digital image.

If you suspect bad pixels are causing your touch screen issues, notify Apple Support for repairs or even replacement.

According to the Tuaw website, Apple's policy has generally been to provide automatic replacement for iPods experiencing pixel problems.

Hi. You need to replace the digitizer. This happens to many touch screen phones from all brands.
you can purchase from:

you can try a hard reset by remove the battery and all power waiting for a half hour to make sure the capacitors are fully drained and then restarting this might reset the touch calibration. it also may be that you have a damaged or loose ZIF connection in the phone that needs repair or te touch screen portion itself needs replacement.
