First of all, sorry about the topic, but I have been reading
all threads concerning calibration problems, but no luck
Few days ago my RU950's screen went dead. The touch screen
was responsive, light came on, but you couldn't use it.
OK, the lost calibration again, I thought, because this
has happened to me earlier and was quickly fixed just
doing the calibration again.
BUT, now I have not been able to do the calibration. I
get the "calibration failed" message right after I hit
the upper right corner. This happens all the time no matter
how sharp pen etc. I am using, or how carefully I am trying
to tap and always after the upper right corner. I know
how this should be done, because I have been doing this
for thousands of times :) I have tested with several firmwares:
3.6.7, 3.9.8 and the newest one 188.8.131.52 and no luck.
I have restored the default configuration, downloaded
my layout again, resetting, removing battery... No luck.
Is there any other tricks you could recommend, or is this
the end of story for my Pronto?
Check if there is no dirty around the screen under the plastic frame. You also can open the remote and clean the touchscreen edges.
If all does not work you can try putting a new touchscreen. Look in PDA parts for the ipaq 5400 series touchscreen
