Touch screen not responding.

My touch screen stopped responding but I could still use the arrow keys and wheel. That was before I did a hard reset and now I can't get past the "align screen" feature being as though I can't tap the screen and get a response.. Do you know what I can do to solve this problem? Im using the Cingular 8525.

    Touchscreen of Acer n300 sometimes works for a few minutes, then it stops functioning although arrow keys are working. Resetting does noet help. Only after one or more days the screen functiosn again for several minutes.

    Have exactly the same problem with a hx2750.
    Searching for a software solution because changing the touch screen would cost too much and would be quite delicate (i dismanteled the pda and the touch screen and his connectors seem glued to the lcd, so it meens unglued the defected one).

  • jevansez May 05, 2008

    Tried soft reboot several times with no luck. Finally tried a hard reboot and now have the screen asking to touch for alignment. Since the screen doesn't respond to touch commands, I am stuck.

Any chance you are using screen protectors and that the edge may have shifted under the case? If yes you have what I call a wedgie and it's causing a phantom tap in a non-accessible area. Remove screen protector.

Any chance there is some dirt/detritus wedged just under the edge of the case pressing on the digitizer? Fold the corner of a piece of copier paper to form a scoop and go around the perimeter of the screen no more than 2.5mm under the case to dislodge (not push in) anything stuck there. This method solved this same problem on my HTC phone

    Thanks very much, I think cleaning Pda properly in the first place would have
    prevented this problem. Waiting for screwdriver to take it apart and clean thoroughly.

Same problem,ie touchscreen not responding and stuck on screen alignment in my imat jasjar a few weeks back.it started after i installed opera 10 beta intothis ppc.So i thought some virus attack,and naturally did a hard reset,but to my despair,it got stuck at the alignment screen.Ho.. what to do? I searched internet,some body suggested bend the screen a lil bit,yes ,it helped a lil bit, but not fully.I found a program called remote screen alignment tool,but it never worked with my imate jasjar,eventhough they told it would work.Being desparate i gave it to a local mobile repair shop,and they told my lcd screen has gone and should be replaced,but it is not available here.I was all the more desparate.but finally, what i did was I removed the screws at the back cover and for the lcd screen,replugged all the cables i could find,reassembled everything,and wow!!! to my surprise it is back to normal!!!

Touch screen is not responsive on LG Spectrum VS920. I performed a a hard factory reset but can't answer the menu questions b/c touch screen won't let me! How can I get through the I am not able to...


Even if you were able to get past the setup, you would still not be able to use the phone. Since you have already performed a factory reset, I would suspect the actual hardware to be faulty. Get it serviced at an authorised service centre

Touch screen


The touch screen wont register if the unit has been reset and sometimes when it updates. Use the side buttons to control the cursor. Click the menu button, and then use the down arrow key to slect settings.click settings with the ok button. use the down arrow button to scroll down to display. click ok. The display screen will come up. Use the down arrow key to go to touch screen calibration. Use the ok button to select this option and follow the instructions. You will have to use the stylus to tap three calibration points on the touch screen and it should work fine from there.

JASJAM TOUCHSCREEN NOT RESPONDING


Did you find a solution to this problem? I have just bought an I-Mate PDA2 and within 4 days the touch screen has stopped responding, but like your, the scroll wheel and buttons still work. I have tried the full reset and now I am left stuck on the initial set up screen. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

Try running a piece of paper around the edge of the screen. There may be was something stuck in there, pressing the screen slightly and causing it to not respond to the stylus4.gif.

Touch screen not responding


I have a tx and have heard of this problem happening. Try hotsyncing to make a backup, then copy your folder so you backup is in a safe place. Then do a hard reset to put it back to factory default. Charge it fully and then run the digitizer again. The reason I suggest these steps is sometimes bad applications can muck with the screen sensitivity. If that doesn't work it may be a hardware problem. Hope it's still under warranty.

IPaq won 't respond to screen calibration.


So far no fixes. It's just been collecting dust. I think it's a screen response issue, and will probably cost more to fix than to replace (at least for me) in my situation. I'm thinking iPhone....

Touch screen


You may have dust accumulation around the edges of your touchscreen, between the screen and the case. Try using a can of compressed air. Gently press down on the edges of the touchscreen to expose the gap between the screen and the case, and shoot the air in there. This worked for me when my Treo 600 touchscreen stopped responding.
