Touch screen doesn't work and won't calibrate.

    I have the same problem on two of these things. The exact same problem. It looks like a crappy product. I have 5 Garmins, two of these and both have the same problem.

    The touch screen on my Garmin 2620 works but is out of calibration, that is, I cannot get the right-most letters to respond at all. There is a calibration protocol (Menu--Display--Find) but each time, after I touch the dots as instructed, it says "calibration failed." A factory tech says it might take half a dozen tries. I tried 20+ times to no avail. Only other option, I was told, is to send it in for repair "and that will be $275" !

We have a VReader and the touch screen doesn't


Try calibrating the touch screen (means of doing this can be found in the user manual). If, after calibrating the screen the touch screen is no longer responsive, I'm afraid that the screen is "ka-put" and will require a repair or replacement.

The touch screen doesn't work with my finger tip, only when my nail touchs screen, also did the screen calibration, did not not help


It may be a resistive screen rather than a capacitive screen which is not as sesitive to touch. You may need to use a stylus as it may need slight pressure vs just touch if it is a resistive screen.

My screen won't work.


Hit the reset button on the back, lower right. If you can get the "settings" icon open and hit "calibrate" that will fix it too. I would still calibrate the screen after you hit the reset button to help prevent this from happening again.

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.

When i turn my 3ds on you can see all the top screen but not the bottom screen


Plug it into the charger first.try calibrating the touch screen.
you can get to the calibration menu without touching the touch screen. First, turn off your system. Hold down L+R+X. While holding these buttons down, press the power button. This should take you to the touch screen calibration menu. (See Nintendo 3DS Operation Manual, Page 15)
If it doesn't work,you need to replace the bottom screen.

please note that all games dont require the bottom screen

Hi, I am having trouble with my LG Ku990i mobile phone, the touch pad calibration won't work & screen has frozen


Touch screen problem

If your touch screen is not working, there are just 2 major causes of such, either a hardware cause which might be either the phone falling on a hard object or in water which could damage the sensor board and either the screen is malfunctioning and needs to be calibrated.

If you can access the menu of the phone, i will advice you calibrate the screen first before you send it to a repair shop. There is no updates to download for such problem as updating the firmware of the phone would do nothing but change the settings of the phone.

To calibrate the screen, you will have to go to the phones menu, go to settings, then you select the calibrate screen, it will show you some stars to touch and once you touch them properly, then your screen will be able to work effectively.

But if you cannot access the menu because of the touch, then i will advice you send it off for repairs, and what to repair on the phone is the sensor board.

Hope this helps you.

China mobile


have a china made handheld double sim touch-screen phone. The device is Winkoy T6688. The touch screen got damaged and after reseting the device, the following notice appears after turning it on:

"Calibration wizard. You have to calibrate the touch-screen. Click anywhwere on the screen with your stylus to start calibration".

Of course you can´t but there´s no other option because it won´t accept any other input until it´s calibrated apparently. Does anyone know how to bypass this calibration wizard on start up?
