Default Quick question about screen issues - 08-17-2010, 06:27 PM

Hi all. I didn't find anything relating to this but I'm having some screen issues and I'm wondering if it's relating to Android 1.6. Often times screen presses just don't work or when they do they select something I never pressed. For example, I press on an app on the left side of the screen, and something on the right randomly gets selected.

Another example was after a soft reset, the marketplace app/button repeatedly pressed and I couldn't do anything but reset yet again.

In general, the touch screen just doesn't seem to work most of the time, but after resetting a few times it does. This leads me to believe it's not hardware related, but I can't tell. Anyone experience this at all?

I haven't experienced anything like that. Occasionally the screen seems unresponsive, but I get something like that from time to time with my laptop when using the touch-pad.

I recommend you perform a screen calibration. I was having similar issues.

Power off then power on holding the volume up and down. When the menu appears, use volume up and down to select the screen calibration option and then select it with the camera button. Follow the on screen instructions.

It sorted out all my screen problems.
