Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone

Iphone touch-screen My Iphone touch screen has stopped working and I am unable to calibrate touch screen - it just won't work. Whenever I select pen calibration and it takes me to the screen to perform function, when I click the screen with stylus nothing happens-it remains at that screen.

Solution i tried on Unlocked 1.1.3 and 1.1.4 versions. Just follow the steps they have been explained really easy way. Dont think this is too hard. Just follow them it will work:

1) download WinSCP on your PC (google it) and run the application
2) download new general.plist file on laptop
3) download OpenSSH on your iphone (its not show on iphone but its there so dont worry)
4) connect the laptop and iphone through the same wireless network and both will have separate ipaddress.
5) write the ipaddress from the iphone (Settings>Wifi>network details to which you are connected to shows you the ipaddress)
6) Goto laptop on WinSCP type the ipaddress of the iphone in host name field and username:root and password: alpine and then hit Login.
7) it will open like an explorer view of your iphone files on laptop then click on root left side. Click Applications> preferences> replace the general.plist file with the one you downloaded. Done the major part.
8) unplug iphone click Settings> General>Touch and reduce the senstivity to 0. 0 gives you the highest touch sensitivity.
9) Now be happy it works....

The issue you are facing is known as a lower dead strip. You may eventually have to replace the digitizer but if you wnat to save some money then follow the steps below

Downgrade to Firmware 1.1.4 (watch some videos on youtube)

Jailbreak using idemocracy 3.0 (google it)

Connect your phone and open fie browser for iphone.

Move to /Application/Preferences.app/
Replace the touch.plist and general.plist with the files found here:
http://limitededitioniphone.com/iphone-touchscreen-fix-increase-sensitivity/

Restart your phone. Got to settings >>> general >>> Touch and decrease the sensitivity t0 -15.0

Restart your phone.
Should work fine now..


Let me know.

This may help:

http://rapidshare.com/files/60583410/Gen...
This is the General.plist file that adds a touchscreen setting to your General Settings. It can alter the touchscreen sensors, with 0 being a high sensor (which is what I have set mine to now) and 16 being the lowest sensor (can't move anything). Default setting is 3.5.
Upload the file to Applications/Preferences.app and you're set!


Best,
I.

It probably just a defective touch panel (digitizer). Bring it to the apple store to see if you get a replacement through them. If you can't, there are third party iPhone repair services, that will fixed it for cheap. Also, I found an DYI iphone repair guide, so you can do it yourself too, not that difficult, part is available on ebay.

How do enable my touchscreen?


This is one link that shows how in pdf (however if you provide your exact model and operating system, you can get a clearer answer) https://www.lenovo.com/shop/americas/content/user_guides/a720_ug_en.pdf
touch screen starts on page 12
2.1 Touch Screen Calibration Prior to first use or whenever the touch screen reacts in a different place where you are touching it, start the calibration program. The procedure is as follows: 1. In Windows 7, Select "Start" - "Control Panel". 2. In Control Panel, select "Hardware and Sound". 3. In "Hardware and Sound" window, select "Tablet PC Settings". 4. In "Tablet PC Settings" dialogue, click "Calibrate" button. 2.2 User Gesture Instructions for the Touch screen The Touch screen supports single touch and rotational movements, enlargement and reduction multi-touch operations, and the user can transmit position information to the computer via touch. The touch screen uses a very low pressure movement recognition method, which only needs the finger to move lightly on the computer display screen or make a simple hand gesture to be detected by the main computer processor.

The pen on my sons leapfrog leapster won't work


Push the "A" button to enter the calibration.
There will be a little plus sign. Touch it with the stylus and continue to touch the plus signs with the stylus until you return to the calibration screen.
Turn the Leapster off and then back on again without a cartridge.

Can no longer calibrate my cintiq pen


Old problem, but I had the same issue. I found that if I search for pen in the start menu and select "Calibrate the screen for pen or touch input" it fails, but if I select "Set up your pen and tablet" and choose the calibrate pen tab there, it works perfectly.

Leapster2 comes on but won't allow me to sign on. The pen does not respond to the pen


Turn leapster2 off. Press and hold question mark button, then turn on leapster2. Keep holding the question mark button until you get a screen that says "touch calibration" on the right. Once you get this screen, let go of question mark button. Press the "A" button to select touch calibration. A small "+" will appear in one corner -- touch it with the pen. Repeat this for all four corners and then the middle. You have re-calibrated the pen. You can then turn the leapster2 off and then on again to play.

If you have tried this and the pen still doesn't work, change the batteries and repeat steps above.

Cect phone a8+ freezing


If you are talking about the touch screen not being responsive at all under normal conditions, read on.
First try calibrating it. There are 2 ways to get to the calibration screen. Please use the stylus to calibrate!
The fastest way is to be on the slide-lock screen & hold the side volume button in the Up position until
"Press volume down key to check" comes up onscreen. This may or may not work on all firmware versions
on the current i9, but works on most. Make sure to hold the button firmly in the Up position. You will first
see the normal volume speaker icon show onscreen and the volume rise, but just keep holding it Up, and
eventually you should see the pop-up box noted earlier. The moment you see that pop up onscreen,
immediately press the side volume button in the down position. A white calibration screen should now
show & you can calibrate the touch screen using the stylus. Try to tap as close to the center of the little
pulsating icons as possible, as this will more accurately calibrate your touch screen. If the calibration
screen didn't come up using that method, then you can get to it from the Main menu screen.
Select "Settings", then select "Pen calibration", & follow the previous instruction.
