HTC Incredible : Light Causing Phantom Swipes On Optical Track Pad

Jul 21, 2010

I am still experiencing phantom swipes (only to the left) on my Incredible. Putting a piece of duck tape over the optical track pad seems to resolve it. This has been ongoing for about a month and a half. I have a warantee but really don't want to wait for my new phone/get one of the newer LCD phones. I have been able to recreate the phantom swipe by moving the phone under different light sources. This is so annoying.

I have tried everything, there isn't dust on my track pad and its not a matter of grounding. I really hope this is not a hardware issue. I got my Inc by pre-order (original with AMOLED). I have been able to toy with some of the newer Inc builds (with the LCD screen). I have noticed the trackpad is more flush with the unit, this leads me to believe they reworked the hardware to fix an issue. Anyone else with the original AMOLED Inc builds experiencing this?

HTC Incredible :: Phantom Swipes To Left

Jul 2, 2010

I've read another related thread with a similar issue but it died down and I'm surprised this hasn't turned into a bigger deal. My Incredible has been chronically swiping to the left I'd say 95% of the time I use it. It is almost definitely the track pad. Nothing is actually being tapped, just swiped. This sucks when it moves on its own to the far left screen, but it is insanely annoying when typing a text message/email and the cursor just races to the left of the message. Ah! I have tried pulling the battery, swabbing the track pad with alcohol, fully draining and charging the battery, but to no luck. The only way to make it stop is to press the track pad, and even then, sometimes it doesn't stop or just starts 10 seconds later. I really DO NOT want to return my current Incredible for a new one because then I'll be stuck with the newer (and cheaper/crappier) screens that are being shipped now. I love the contrast and vibrancy of the screen and don't want to be downgraded! Has anyone found a fix for this? I hope, but doubt the upcoming OTA will help. I know this isn't an isolated issue as a couple of my friends with the INC are experiencing the same issue.

HTC Incredible :: Optical Track Pad Backlit?

May 6, 2010

Can someone tell me if the optical track pad is backlit? Ie the Droid Eris track ball is and can be setup to flash (pulse) for missed calls, sms, emails, etc. Just wanted to make sure that feature wasn't dropped.

HTC Incredible : Way Of Optical Track Pad Calibration?

Apr 30, 2010

I think my optical track pad is not calibrated. Sometimes (often) when I unlock my phone, the screens start automatically shifting to the right. If I manage to open an app, the selection keeps going to the right. For example, if I am in a text message and am trying to move the cursor to a previous work to correct spelling, the cursor keeps moving the right and down on its own. Is there a way to calibrate the optical trackpad? Anyone else having this issue?

HTC Incredible : Optical Track Pad Doesn't Work In Dark?

Aug 7, 2010

Last night I was hammering out some emails while watching TV. The only light in the room was from the Inc and the TV. I could not get the track pad to register my motions. I attempted to angle the phone to face the TV but still got no response.

I'm thinking this is a design failure. An optical device shouldn't be on a phone if it can't be used in the dark. Seems to me that the light sensor would affect the track pad's sensitivity based on the ambient light.

Is there any work around to getting the track pad to work in the dark?

HTC Desire :: Optical Track Pad Lags

Apr 11, 2010

If you use the optical track pad and move through homescreens really fast, it becomes extremely choppy on my desire.But when using the nexus one live wallpaper its totally smooth and not choppy at all.I would have thought it would be choppy with the nexus one live wallpaper and not choppy with an ordinary one.

HTC Desire : Turning Screen OFF With Optical Track Pad Button

Sep 14, 2010

Okay so I know you can turn the screen ON with the Track Pad. Using a custom ROM. I have my phone set up this way, but is there an app out there that allows you to turn it OFF again, again using the track pad?

It seems weird that you can do one, but not the other, and I'd rather just press the button facing me, than have to pick my phone up to use the power button. Just to kill the screen.

HTC Incredible :: Put On Phantom Skin For Their DI?

May 4, 2010

Was just wondering if anyone else put on a phantom skin for their DI...I am new at the whole "get your protector wet" application and am trying to figure out how long it takes for the moisture trapped in the screen to dissipate so it is clear. I really hope I didn't do it wrong, as it is mostly clear, but still pockets of a "cloudy" look.

HTC Incredible :: Phantom Screen Touches A Little

Apr 29, 2010

Mine just started registering phantom screen touches a little while ago.It seems to think there is either and up-swipe or some kind of touch near the top of the screen randomly. For example, an email or list will constantly be scrolling up or if I leave it on a screen with Power Panel on it, one of the icons will randomly highlight orange. The page with the google search widget will have the search field highlight orange on it's own too. When entering text, the cursor will randomly jump back to the beginning.

HTC Incredible :: Optical Joystick Sensitivity

May 14, 2010

I'm not sure if this is just an issue with my dinc, but the joystick is too sensitive - to the point of being unusable. Every time I try to navigate screens, lists, or text in a message or web site address it acts as if I've pushed it no matter how light I touch it or move my finger across it. Is anyone else having this issue?

HTC Incredible :: Droid Optical Joystick Speed

Aug 18, 2010

Let me preface this by saying that I just unrooted my phone and downgraded from Froyo, so I'm not interesting in rooting again if that's the only solution that you have.Is there a setting to adjust the speed at which the cursor (in text boxes, emails, sms, etc) scrolls through each letter? It seems the fast I move my finger across it, the slower it moves, but the slower I move my finger the faster in moves. Is there a setting I can adjust? I compare this to choosing how fast the cursor on your PC moves when you move your mouse.

HTC Incredible :: Phantom Skinz Or Zagg On Lens Cover

May 6, 2010

I have an extra Zagg and an extra PS that I'm thinking about cutting and sizing to fit the camera lens. I'm opposed to using any kind of cover, but these leaves the camera cover exposed. The only potential problem I see is my photo shots coming out blurry, and I'll most likely use the PS as it is a little bit more transparent than the Zagg.

HTC Incredible :: Which Screen Protector - Zagg - Phantom Skinz - Steinheil

May 2, 2010

I put a Zagg Invisible shield on but did not like the super glossy orange peel look so I removed it. I checked out the steinheils website and some youtube vids and they look really nice. Is the only difference between the steinheil crystal and the anti-fingerprint the finish? I'm not too sure I'd like the matte finish as I would think it would slightly dull the brightness of the display. I've also seen the Phantom skinz and the orange peel effect seems to be a bit better than on the Zagg. Anyone with experience using both Zagg and Phantom SKinz products how do they compare? Does either of the two have a definitive advantage over the other in terms of appearance and feel of the coating while sliding your finger over it.
