does anyone know if there is a way to re-calibrate our touch screen? Mine seems a little inaccurate with robo-defense latelyView 5 Replies View Related
I have looked all over, and done a few searches already, but that don't mean I'm not blind.
How do you/Can you calibrate the screen touch points on the DX? I seem to have to aim slightly lower left of every thing I want to hit. Sadly it seems to be getting worse or well, I'm blinder than I thought.
First of all I searched and couldn't find anything on this. Is anyone else having an issue with the screen not being very accurate? The on screen keyboard seems fine for me, but choosing something such as a link in the web browser is a little off on my phone.
An example would be opening www.wsmv.com (my local news), then trying to click on news on the left hand side...instead of news, it will choose what is below it (in this case weather). I thought it was my fat fingers, but others who have tried my phone experience the same issue. I was just wondering if it was just me? Any way to calibrate the screen?
I don't know if this is possible on the X, but how do I calibrate the touch screen? I've noticed two things that are beginning to drive me crazy. The first is that it is so sensitive at times, if I pass my finger over a button without actually touching the screen, it thinks I pressed it and executes the function. Second, I noticed that the spot I touch actually is off a bit so when I try to hit a link from a list (such as a thread here) it will pick the one above it.View 5 Replies View Related
I found the APK for this app. I guess it's to be on the G2, but was somehow released. Finally a way to calibrate the screen. Link: G2_widgets.zipView 1 Replies View Related

I found out that the touch screen on my new Xperia X8 isn't aligned to my liking.
It's kind of difficult for me to use the screen keyboard for SMS.
How can I calibrate the screen?
Just a quick question about the Captivate. I just got myself an HTC Aria and I love how easy it is to use the touch screen on it. Its extremely responsive. Now my sister has the SamSung Instinct on Sprint and the touch screen is horrible compared to HTCs touch on the Aria. Im thinking about taking the HTC back to AT&T and getting the Samsung Captivate. I am just worried about the touch screen on it and if it will be like the Instincts? If the touch is as good as HTCs Ill get it. If its not, then Ill stick with the Aria because despite its size, its an extremely fun and responsive phone. Any thoughts?View 10 Replies View Related
Is there such a thing for the HTC desire? also, is there a app that lets you see how many multi touch points the htc desire has? i saw some youtube vids where that have this app and they put as many fingers as they can on the screen and scribble around.View 2 Replies View Related
I want to listen for the touch events from Lock Screen and Home Screen, is there any way i can tap those to my applications.View 4 Replies View Related
I bought a new droid for $20 haha lucky i think until i notice that the touch screen only works for the middle of the screen to the left so if yu cut the screen into thirds only the middle and left work assuming that yu cut it from top to bottom with the lights at the bottom for the home button etc. I opened it up cleaned all the flex cable with alcohol and waited for it to dry and it still does the same thing so my question is = do i need a new digitizer or is it a software problem or something that i dont even know?View 9 Replies View Related
Touch screen is completely froze on my home screen.Battery pulls don't work, tried a android recovery.Can't unlock,can't do anything.Y'all have any suggestions?View 6 Replies View Related
Anyone know of a widget to simply lock the screen or put into sleep mode by pressing something on the screen rather than pressing the power button on the top of the phone. Tried looking around and unless I'm missing something (I am particularly good at missing the obvious!) there doesn't seem to be anything that does just that. Anyone know/come across anything that will do this? Does anyone know if this might be included in 2.2?View 1 Replies View Related
I'm actually usually lurking on the HTC Incredible forums, and had originally found a greatly informative article about the new touch screen tech the EVO 4g and Inc will be using.
Does anyone have a site book marked talking about how it's different, how it works, and how it compares to other screens? I know there was an article, and a video of a woman using the technology on a big screen, it looked great. I wanted to show it off...it really is some amazing technology.
My wife and I are looking at the Evo. It will be the first touch screen either one of us has owned. My wife has long finger nails. Will she get by with touching the screen with her nail or will she need to actually use her finger? This could be a deal breaker for her.View 49 Replies View Related
my Evo's screen will lock up...by that I mean the phone continues to function if I get a call or text, but I can't press any buttons or anything else on the screen (I'm still on v2.1). I can press the Power button and it brings up the power options dialog, but I'm unable to select any option or dismiss it. Usually if I wait a few minutes the screen will eventuall unfreeze and allow normal operation, but on a couple of occasions I had to pull the battery. Coming from the Palm Pre I'm used to this kind of crap, but I was hoping I left it behind me. Is there a way to reboot the phone just using the hard keys (i.e., some combination of Power + volume)? This would be an acceptable workaround...in fact, I would pay for an app that would turn the Power button into a "power off" button with a long press (hold the key down for 10 seconds and it turns off the phone). Otherwise, this is just annoying, but so far I'm living with it.View 1 Replies View Related
I have had my hero 4 months now and Love the phone...But a few weeks ago certain programs where it says press to start would not work. I have to use the small roller ball on the bottom. I press and press but nothing happens. This is with a few programs such as the RAC app. I have reset, cleaned the screen etc!. The screen touch works in that area as I can use keyboard. My girl friends hero and friends seem so much better, keyboard is easier ti use aalso. I've callibrated etc and nothing!. Is it broke?View 1 Replies View Related
Is there a way to calibrate the GPS? When I'm in Google Maps my location always seems to be off by about 30 - 60 feet. Or is this as close as it can get? Maybe the navigation in 2.1 will be better.View 1 Replies View Related
How do I calibrate my GPS. For some reason on some roads it thinks I am 50 to 100 feet off the side of the road. Then some roads I am fine. It is real annoying when the navigation lady keeps telling me to turn left at the intersection of 1st and broad, 2nd and broad, etc. for every side street I pass because it thinks I am 100 feet to the left of where I actually am. I have never had this problem with any GPS I have ever used so what gives..View 21 Replies View Related
after updating to the official 2.1 OS I cant seem to find this option anymore? It is still there right? am i just blind?View 4 Replies View Related
If there is an app or menu option to turn the touch screen on & off. Sometimes when I'm watching videos while holding the phone in my hand, if I get distracted for a second (say someone comes up and talks to me) and I move the phone, the slightest brush of my hands near the screen plays havoc with the video I'm watching. I'd like a way to temporarily toggle the touch screen on/off, say with volume/base button combination or something.View 1 Replies View Related
Are there any Im clients with touch screen? Aim in particular would be great. I am rootes at 1.42 rc33. Tried meebo and such but didn't have it.View 5 Replies View Related
Ok time for the next issue with this phone. Has anyone noticed a general lag between touch screen presses and actions/sounds?
The best examples are:
1) I type fast, and keep the click sound when I type. I can literally hear about a 1/4 second to 1/2 second lag between when I press the buttons and when the sound clicks.
2) Download any free piano or drum up and try to keep a steady beat. There's a nasty lag between when you tap the screen and when the sound comes out.
For comparison, the keyboard and piano app on my old iphone (3G no less), work perfectly. And my iPad is wonderfully smooth.
Is this a software issue, or a problem with my phone?
Musical Lite is a good sample program for free if anyone wants to try this out.
I am having a problem with the touch screen in that whenever the screen is touched, it causes significant slowdown because of the large number of callbacks that are being made. I have read in this group about throttling the UI thread, but this does not seem a good solution and i can't believe there isn't a better approach?View 4 Replies View Related
Alot of android phones use the capacitive touchscreen technology. I was wondering if there is away to access any sort of information related to this sensor.
In other words I want to get the voltage potential related to the distance that you push down on the screen.
I know this is probably really deep into the hardware technology and it's probably proprietary, but I want to know if someone has figured out how to access this data or if there is a way around it.
RT Actually I wanna detect the shape of touch point, i.e. the shape of finger touch on the screen
Seems that the only information I can get in touch event is the size of the touch point(by event.getSize())
By the implementation of the screen, the shape(and pressure of each point in the shape) of the touching finger should be the first raw data that the hardware can detect
So, how could I get these raw data?
In stacking tasks, at some point the touch screen dont work any more. It works again later without reason. Is this a known problem ?View 3 Replies View Related

Is there a way to adjust the sensitivity for the Touch Screen on the new EVO. It works very well, almost too well, it is very sensitive.View 3 Replies View Related
just got my desire HD on friday and i've noticed a massive problem already. a part of the screen is unresponsive or just doesn't work properly. its a massive pain to try and type on and sometimes a button to press is in that gap on the screen so essentially you cant select it? a friend of mine has got an experia phone and he said he had the same issue but, when he did a 'manual update on his computer using software on phone?' it fixed it. so i'm hoping this could be a software fix and hopefully not have to wait to send it back.i hope you guys have heard of a problem like this and could really help meView 1 Replies View Related
Just recently, the top part of the screen where I would normally swipe to slide out the notification tray turned unresponsive. I downloaded the screen test tookit and tested the touch screen, and it confirmed the top part of the screen is not registering any touches. Is there anyway to fix this? Or am I stuck with this unless I bring it back to Sprint?View 1 Replies View Related

So my EVO screen is unresponsive only when I use the dialer (keys 7, 8, 9 in stock dialer and 4, 5, 6 when I tried dialer one). Last I recall this was not an issue when using Fresh 0.5.3 but first emerged when i switched to Fresh 1.01. I promptly returned to Fresh 0.5.3 and the problem was gone. Within the last several weeks, I switched to a 2.2 ROM (Fresh 3.2) and the problem wasn't there until recently when I began flashing different ROMs to try. Anyone run into this a similar non-responsive touch screen only in certain apps and areas? The area of the screen is fine in other apps, it seems to be limited to the dialer.View 4 Replies View Related
So twice in the past two days, the screen isn't registering where I'm tapping on it. Last night, when I was trying to pick the middle right lower icon, it kept opening the menu. When I clicked the lower right icon, it would click the dot for the next window. It was seeming to register about a half inch lower on the screen than where I was actually pressing.
Another thing that was happening was when scrolling, it would click on things instead of scroll. I was in the Appmarket and scrolling through apps when it would click on one and then start installing. This was very frustrating although I was lucky none of the apps that installed were paid apps.
Its working fine now this morning but its a bit disconcerting. Has anyone been able to do a screen reset or reconfigure the touch?
I tried the free compass from catch.com, plus some others, and I can't get any of them to calibrate correctly. Anyone else have these issues? I don't know if its the phone or the apps.View 7 Replies View Related
I bought my HTC Desire a few weeks ago in Korea and I have trouble with the keyboard detecting my touch properly. I tried to go calibrate the damn thing but when I go into Settings<language and keyboard the only options available are Select Local which leads to either Korean or English language and DioPen IME which leads to a bunch of options but none of which are keyboard calibrate. Is there anyway for me to calibrate the keyboard? I've tried downloading different keyboards from the market to see if they work better but when I select them in the language and keyboard folder they still don't work so I don't know what to do.View 8 Replies View Related
It would end up looking something like the PSP. You would think that this would be an incredible feature for gamers and any platform that was serious about gaming. Then we wouldn't have to use touchscreen controls, barely passable d-pads, or optical trackballs?View 3 Replies View Related

I'm on EVO #2 now. #1 failed after what I believe to be an overheating issue when using outside for a couple hours. So today I'm at the Red Bull Flugtag taking pics and video. Its warm(HOT)...after a couple hours I notice that I now have a dead touch spot on my screen. If you were to divide the screen into 4 quadrants...the lower left quadrant is now 100% completely unresponsive to touch. Rebooted, took the battery out, did a hard reset like Sprint advised all to no avail. I'm now on the waiting list again at BB.View 5 Replies View Related
I want to get the display as dark as possible but I also want the display to remain touch sensitive.So I can't turn the display off, otherwise it wouldn't react to touch anymore. And I use WindowManager. LayoutParams. screenBrightness to get the screen as dark as possible. And I put a layer colored black over the entire display.That works, but at night one sees that the screen is still quite strongly illuminated.Does anybody have an idea of how to get the screen even darker?View 5 Replies View Related
My EVO has been answering phone calls in my pocket. I've even "butt dialed" a couple of people when I forgot to turn of the screen before sticking it in the pocket.
If I forget to turn off the screen, that's my fault, but the screen turns itself on when the phone rings.
How the heck is a capacitive screen working through fabric, anyway?
Went into test mode to check out the battery. And through my curiosity went into the 'touch-fw update', and now I can't use my phone. I have the touchscreen lock so can't unlock it, otherwise maybe I could use the keyboard or the optical joystick to use the phone. Is there any way to fix this? I might attempt a hard reset, but saw on another forum, that it's unfixable. I bought it at Best Buy and they aren't even open tomorrow, would another Best Buy or Sprint store exchange it if I can't fix it?View 5 Replies View Related
