    Initially I had the same problem where the stylus didn't function at the correct location and I would continually adjust the touchscreen. Then it totally went out and the touchscreen does not work at all now.

    After replacing the screen (my toddler accidently smashed the original when he was playing) the stylus input goes about an inch off the actual physical contact point. I took it apart several times, reset, plugged in, everything I could think of. :( I really liked this PDA and I can't afford a new one, which is why I replaced the screen. Now I wasted $75 on a screen and the stupid thing still doesn't work.

    Same thing. I started noticing that writing was more difficult and alignment was off, even though I re-did alignment often. Now I get nothing on the touch screen. I have re-set it, no change. The buttons work, but that is it.

I noticed this problem with mine and solved it by loosening the 4(four) T5 screws in the back. The problem is caused by a swollen battery. When the PDA is left charging for extensive periods of time, as mine was(several months of inactivity and never thought to unplug it), the battery will swell. It's still a good battery and holds a charge, but the increased girth presses on the internal boards of the PDA causing the screen to register a continuous "touch" and therefore seems locked. It's actually waiting for the phantom touch to release so it can act. Unscrewing the fasteners allows the body to expand, thereby releasing the pressure on the screen and letting the phantom touch go away. I'm going to see how well my e2 does without the screws in it at all for a few days. The front and back panels have "clips" molded into them which hold to the side frames, keeping it closed. But the fasteners are there to ensure the PDA doesn't fall apart all together. So, wish me luck. I'll report back in a few days and update this.

I had the same problem. I saw somewhere that detaching the battery for a while might help. I opened the case (after finally finding a T5 screwdriver...), detached the battery, then plugged it back in. It didn't help, but I realized as I was screwing the case back on that loosening up the screws a bit did restore the functioning of the screen.

Had the same problem. Touch screen no longer responded.

The problem was solved by opening the 4 screws on the back, disconnecting the little plastic square that connects the battery to the wires and reconnecting. (Use a small tweezer to pull it off) Then recalibrate the screen. It worked fine after.

On my Tungsten e2 I had to change my battery. After changing it my touch screen was frozen and the power switch would not work. So I googled the issue and it brought me to this forum. I saw
dlzalkin's answer about loosening up the four screws, and that solved it immediately. Thanks!

Where can I purchase a stylist for my tablet


Hello, Della -

Fixya.com receives questions from people all over the world. Without knowing where (what country) you live, it is a challenge to recommend where you can purchase a stylus (not a stylist) to use with your tablet.

You can use your favorite search engine (Google, Bing, Yahoo Search, etc.) and enter the following search strategy to get a list of website and bricks and mortar businesses which sell styli (plural of stylus):
table stylus

In case you live in the USA, I see Best Buy sells a variety of styli:

Note: The website lifehacker.com has an article listing what they consider to be the 5 best tablet styli:

Best wishes.

Im having trouble with the screen its very hard to push the screen to type anything and i when i use the the stylis it taps the wrong letter everytime


Do you have a protective case on the device? If so, it might work better if you remove it. Please give more details if you post again, such as the model number, brand, etc.

Station preset


If I have the same one; all you need to do is tune into the station you want to listen to. Then tap and hold on the preset you want to program it to. You will then see the p1 -p6 icon, which ever one you are programing will light up to indicate that you have set it. Its a little hard to see but if you have finger nails, the radio responds better. So in theory use a stylis when doing this it will be easier and much better to see.

My touch screen dosent work on my htc fuze.. the visual aspect is fine but it just dosent respond to any touch.. not even with the stylis. has anyone had this problem? if soo please help im still under...


Hey your touch pad would have gone for a toss. Between your touch pad dont have any relation with ur display so thats wy your display is working fine. As you are in contract, you can always go and claim for a free service or also free replacement of mobile. If you argue better you will get a free replacement rather than free service.

Won't turn off or on, wont do anything, is lit up though


Might try a warm reset. Unscrew the plastic top of the stylis. and push it into the reset hole in the back of the unit, remone it from the reset hole, then turn unit back on.

Low Volume from right speaker of entertainment center - turntable only


Hi There thanks for your very good desctiption of the problem it really helps to have a lot of detail...

There are Mono and stereo types of stylis cartridges and it sounds like you have a mono equipped into a stereo amplifier..

If there are 4 small coloured wires visible under the stylis then
its a stereo stylis and should work, have a close look and maybe one of the small wires has dropped of the small pins on the back opf the stylis cartridge.

If there only two wires visible then its a mono cartridge and this is why you only have sound from one channel..

So answer is wires dropped of the stylis.
or
Wrong type of stylis cartridge.
or
if there are four wires and thay all look connected then perhaps the stylis is faulty and you need to replace it...

Cheers from YU BEUT
