    I haven't done anything to my iphone (drop it or messed it up) and the bottom half of the touchscreen is not working. Does the technical group at apple fix that or do you have to pay for another phone? If so, that's stupid-why buy something if it's going to break in a month and a half...

I think my solution for my Viewty will work for the iPhone

I found a solution for the LG KU990 Viewty touchscreen not responding problem. After thinking about twisting my phone, I came up with another solution which actually works every time. The touchscreen works via layers of plastic that when contact is made, a signal is triggered from the coordinates of the contact. However, when the phone has pressure, these layers of plastic stick together somehow. So, to fix it.... Get a small strip of adhesive tape that will not leave a sticky residue on your screen. Apply that tape in several spots on the surface of the screen, and lift it away from the phone with light pressure. Repeat this in several areas of the screen. That's it. You're done. Your screen should function properly. Simply recalibrate the touchscreen at this point in your settings menu. I hope it helps everyone with any type of touchscreen. I know it helped me. The touchscreen phones are totally useless using only the hard keys!

Piston does non fully retract all the time and then it can't feed nail

I have the same trouble with mine guns from time to time. A really good tear down cleaning followed by a drop or two of quality machine oil each time you use it should solve your problem. If you only use it once a month or so try dry firing it after oiling a half a dozen shots or so before loading it
