Samsung Fascinate :: Bottom Touch Buttons Not Working

Nov 1, 2010

Once a day my phone freezes to the point that the bottom buttons are non-responsive. The only fix is to reboot.Any ideas? There's no pattern - it can happen as I'm actively using the phone or as I start to use it after it's been idle for an hour.

HTC EVO 4G :: Way To Make Touch Buttons On Bottom Less Sensitive?

Jul 10, 2010

Anyone know any way to make the touch buttons on the bottom less sensitive? Gees, I can't touch the phone without opening the Quick Search. It's not just the button, it's the entire right bottom corner of the phone which activates this. Any utility, tape, hack or anything else to disable this button?

Motorola Droid X :: Buttons At Bottom Of Phone Not Working

Jul 19, 2010

The buttons at the bottom of the phone (not the hard-press buttons, but the lower row of touch-screen buttons -- dialer, open app list, and contacts), are non-responsive.

Everything else seems to be working okay. Tried powering off/up, also tried battery pull, still the same.

I'm close to opting for "restore factory settings", but I've spent some time customizing, and that's really a last resort.

Samsung Vibrant :: Can't Get Used To Those 4 Bottom Buttons

Jul 23, 2010

Coming from the iphone, those bottom buttons on the Vibrant are so difficult.First, it often takes some hunting to get them to respond, especially the far left one, which take several attempts quite often.Because they're not tactical in the dark, it's highly problematic that they LEDs time-out after a measly 3 seconds! What's the point of the LEDs if they're going to shine for that short of time?I'd have to say this is the most frustrating part of this phone. Hopefully, these woes can be cured with a software update?

Samsung Epic 4G : How To Change Bottom Four Home Buttons

Nov 20, 2010

i saw a video back when i was debating between evo and epic, and it showed me how to change those bottom 4 buttons (PHONE CONTACTS MESSAGING APPLICATIONS). i figure phone and contacts kinda go hand in hand so its a waste, and i use HANDCENT. now that i have the phone i cant figure out how to do it to save my life. anyone have any ideas?

The same feature also allowed you to swap around the applications view, and delete unused home pages. i dont need 7 pages id be fine with 4 or 5 (multicon FTW)

Android :: Placing Buttons - Place Four Buttons Near Top - Left - Bottom - Right Edge Of The Screen

I am not able to find out the perfect layout(viewgroup) to place four buttons as shown in the attached image. Basically, i want to place four buttons near the top/left/bottom/right edge of the screen. AbsoluteLayout helped, but it is deprecated (It is also better to avoid AbsoluteLayout as it is not very flexible for orientation changes)

Samsung Fascinate :: Screen White Lines From Top To Bottom?

Oct 14, 2010

Randomly, when actively doing stuff on the phone, I go to white lines running from the top of the phone to the bottom when the screen was in portrait position. There were two of them on the right side, each line being a couple pixels in width, separated by a few pixels of normal screen. It lasted for a few seconds, and then the screen reset itself. It's only happened once or twice, but it should happen at all with such an expensive phone and nice screen.

Samsung EPIC 4G :: Buttons Barely Respond To Touch

Sep 5, 2010

I like many of you have been waiting for months to get my hands on the epic. However when I bought one, the battery life was insanely unusable even after 4-5 days. So I finally returned it for a new on. Well find out over the next few days how the battery performs. But the new one has capacitive buttons that barely respond to touch. Particularly the home key and menu key. I've read of a bunch of people having similar problems. Are we just a few unlucky people who happen to be on the forums, or is Samsung having serious Quality control issues here?

Samsung Fascinate :: Position Of Volume And Power Buttons

Oct 20, 2010

Is anyone else annoyed by the fact that the volume and power buttons are positioned at the same level on opposite sides of the phone? When I try to hit the power button I usually hit the volume button as well because of the positioning so my ringer goes from vibrate to on or changes volume. The power button really should have been up top.

Samsung Fascinate :: When Reply Text None Of The Letter Buttons Will Work

Oct 31, 2010

Every now and then when I get a text and try to reply, none of the letter buttons will work. From what I've tried, the only way to fix it is to exit all the way out of the messaging application and go back in. The buttons will animate like they are being pushed, vibrate, and even show swype trails and word suggestions, but none of my words will show up on the screen.

I haven't figured out the specific instances when this happens. It seems a little random but I think it may only happen when I lock the screen without leaving the messaging application first, I get a text, and try to reply immediately from the app. But I'm really not sure - it might just be random.

Samsung I7500 :: Physical Buttons Not Working

Oct 14, 2009

I've had my phone for a while now but a few days ago some of the physical buttons stopped working. I'm not sure why but the home, call pick up, and camera buttons now no longer function. I'd have assumed this was a physical fault immediately, however when the screen is darkened (power save?) if I press any of the "failed" buttons then it will light up again! I'd be interested in knowing whether there are any diagnostic tools available for this also. Failing anything else I'll be phoning O2 to get phone replaced! I've updated to II4 via the NPS update and they are still broken.

Samsung Behold 2 :: Lock And End Call Buttons Not Working

Mar 30, 2010

Discovered that the lock button on the side of the phone and the red end call button does not work...by themshelves! I have to push the home buttom and either one of the non-functioning buttons for it to work.

It's both a relief and pain to have figured this out. For the longest time, I thought the battery was horrid because when I would push the unlock button, the phone would not recognize it so the screen remains black making me think it off, out of battery. But then I noticed recently that the phone comes on when I hit the home button.

This is such a let down, you are never happy when your purchase breaks. Fortunitely I have the replacement insurance if it need be used. I was wondering if this is a known problem and can be fixed by me or if the phone need to be sent in for a replacement.

Samsung Moment :: Touch Screen Not Working

Dec 27, 2009

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?

Android :: Linear Layout - Series Of Buttons In Bottom

May 2, 2010

I am trying to build a layout dynamically which display some text and image for the most part, but has a series of buttons placed next to each other in the bottom. I have a linear layout that carries the text, another linear layout that carries the image. And yet another linear layout that carries the buttons that get created in a for loop. I have a main layout aligned vertical that adds the text, image and buttons layout, in that order. To finally generate something like this: Text Image Button1 Button2 Button3. The problem is the number of buttons get decided at runtime, so if there are more than 4 buttons, the 5th button gets displayed really tiny. Also, when I tilt the phone, I get only the text and image showing, but no buttons because the image covers the entire screen. Layout thing seems to be pretty complicated to me, any help is appreciated!

Android :: Menu Buttons In Bottom Part Of Layout

Sep 16, 2009

My application has some buttons in the bottom part of activity layout, almost the same like iphone has on ipod app for example. I would like to create my layout so that it will self adjust on different screen sizes.

For example if the content in my layout has height = 400dip and the menu bar in the bottom has height = 100 dip, on every screen size (240*320, 320*480 etc.) i would like the menu bar to stay at the bottom so :

- on screen size 240*320 -> 100dip - for menubar -> 220dip - for content => it remains 180 dip to show, so this content area should be in some kind of a scrollview so that i can view 400dip in only 220dip.

I have tested different possibilities, with relativelayout so that the menu bar could stay on bottom, but i could not put the scroll view on top so that the scroll appears only on small screen sizes.

This is so sick, how do you build your layouts for different screen sizes ?

Android : Layout - Switch Between By Using A Set Of Buttons That Is At The Bottom Of The Screen

Feb 19, 2010

My app has 5 different relative layouts that it can switch between by using a set of buttons that is at the bottom of the screen. 3 of the layouts contain only TextViews and ImageViews. The other 2 both have a ListView in them. On the 2 views that contain lists when the soft keyboard appears the buttons that are along the bottom move up to on top of the soft keyboard. But on the other 3 views the buttons get hidden by the keyboard. The buttons all have the attribute android:alignParentBottom="true" does anyone know why they'd be behaving differently when one of these two are the active layout at the time?
