I have the device disassembled but don't know what to check to fix the touchscreen.
I've touched and wiggled just about everything. Even disconnected the battery for a while in sheer desperation.

Stylus touch DOES work a bit. It works only on certain areas of the screen but even right after calibration, the touch spot doesn't correspond to what happens and NOTHING happens on touching the right side of the screen.

I CAN hear some kind of sound of a solenoid?? switch whenever the screen is touched.

Is this just a lost cause?

I even reflashed with Familiar to see if it was a software problem but the touchscreen works neither in Win CE nor in Linux.

Expert help needed. smile.gif
