Just lately, when ever I use my 5800, the screen does not respond to where I touch it. I seems to go to the right wherever I touch the screen. (For example- if I touch the "Reply" icon in a text message, it goes on to delete. I hope this gives you some idea.)Has anyone else on here experienced this? I've got a couple of friends who have this phone and they're experiencing this problem too.It's very infuriating because I can't use the bloody phone, and I'm starting to regret buying it.I wish I'd have got a jailbreaked iPhone now.

I have this phone from six months.It is having touch screen problems since a few days.like for eg. When I tap the message icon it opens gallery,The touch seems to be on right side wherever I tap or touch.The phone then when it gets restarted works fine.Touch screen calibration does not seem to work and I have the latest firmware update too.Please help.
My HTC Touch Pro's touchscreen does not work on some spots and hence I am unable to align the screen after a hard reset. Yes, I did not backup the values before the hard reset . Can anyone send their Raphael's alignment values to me. They can be found at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINEHARDWAREDEVICEMAPTOUCH in the calibration data key in the Raphael's registry.I cant use the phone for anything but receiving calls right now. So any reply will be greatly appreciated.
Am I the only one that is having trouble with the calibration of the touch screen on the Torch 9800.This is so far the only complaint about the phone. If there are any helpful hints out there, please reply!
My 5800 touch screen is not responding well like any touch screen should. Compared with my friend's phone and he said there is definite problem with touch. Now is this rectifiable? Or better to go for an exchange? I dont trust Nokia Care because my e72 is still with them for some error which they are not explaning properly. Poor customer service.
I'm a 1st time owner of a brand new 5800, this is my first experience with a touch screen phone and I was wondering since the screen is plastic and I absolutely hate scratches on my phones anywhere but especially on my screen, is there a way to put a screen protector on the screenof the phone and have the touch screen still work, will it be less sensitive or will it work at all?
Since Friday the screen of my N97 has been all over the place. I touch one part and it's unresponsive, I touch another and it does something that I didn't ask it to do.I figured out quite quickly that it was the screen calibration that had gone to **bleep** and although I had no clue as to why, I re-calibrated the screen.Success for a few hours then the same happened again.I re-calibrate the screen, everything works fine for a few hours then I have to do it all again.I've re-flashed, soft and hard reset and still it's the same.Had to resort to using my N95 at the moment until I find out if there is a solution or whether it is getting returned to Nokia under warranty.Any suggestions would be helpful.
Couldnt use touch screen at all suddenly today, I reinstalled the latest firmware update but it didnt help so did full reset and now Ive got the countries screen but can only scroll down 3 countries and cannot select any (select and cancel dont work) also the media bar keeps randomly flashing onto the screen. Anyone any idea what's causing this? It hasnt been dropped or anything, first I knew was I couldnt turn off the alarm this morning. I dont know how to go about getting it repaired as it was a competition prize in july 2009 and didnt come with any warranty documents.
I have the 5800 XpressMusic and a few days ago the touch screen stopped working properly.When the phone has been off for an hour or two everything works fine for the first couple of minutes, then it stops recognizing presses/unpresses and holds a lot. For this reason it sounds to me like a software fault but the guy in the local phone shop reckons the screen is pressed in and needs to be physically repaired.Any ideas?
If you are having issues calibrating your compass, READ THIS!On my N97-NAM v10 or v11 firmware (have tested both) the compass calibration is reset whenever the screen orientation changes (ie: portrait to landscape or landscape to portrait orientation). This, of course, happens whenever you flip open/closed the keyboard, or with autoratation whenever you tilt the phone 90 degrees on the axis normal to the display.I have read MANY posts where people have a hard time calibrating their compass. Others seem to have no issue at all. I was one of those with issues, but unable till now to pinpoint exactly what was happening. Here is a method to reproduce the failure:[EDIT - step zero added - seems to make problem more apparent with effects turned on despite no effects being shown during this process - open/close keyboard still causes calibration lose with effects off]0. Settings -> Theme -> General -> Options -> Theme effects -> On (i'm using built-in theme Nseries 2)
2. Open Nokia Maps (I'm using the latest version, 3.0)
3. Hold phone with screen facing the sky then rotate the phone on the long axis (do not do the figure-8, just spin on the long axis)
4. After 3-4 spins, note that the compass is calibrated - the compass indicator is green and will stay that way.
Multiple method to produce calibration loss:
a. Flip open screen. Note that the MOMENT you flip open the screen, the compass calibration is lost and you must re-calibrate it. Calibration will reliably work with screen open, and for some reason seems to persist most of the time when the screen is flipped closed, but open it again and -**bleep**- it's gone.
b. leave maps running, press the menu button and navigate back through settings to ENABLE Auto-rotate display. Make sure that the phone is lying flat and WILL NOT AUTO-ROTATE YET. long-press the menu button and return to maps. Note that calibration is NOT lost, the compass is still green and working properly. turn the phone on its side to cause transition to landscape mode: INSTANTLY you will loose calibration.In method (b), note that it is now basically impossible to re-calibrate the compass. you have to spin the without ever stimulating the accelerometer with 1g (gravity) along EITHER of the auto-rotation triggering axis. for me, it works (calibrates) only if i have the auto-rate trigger a landscape orientation, then follow this explicit flipping procedure:
- lay the phone flat on a table, face up. - flip along back edge (edge with camera/volume buttons) - spin 180 degrees to make camera/volume buttons face away from me again - flip along back edge - spin again - flip again - you get it now do this many times - as long as the edge with screen lock switch NEVER faces 'down' AND the bottom edge (microphone) NEVER faces 'down' then the compass will eventually calibrate. once calibrated, you will loose calibration if you cause the screen orientation to change.Right then. If the above is NOT true for you, please respond to this thread so I can return my faulty hardware. If it IS true, of course, please respond as well so we all can figure out if this is isolated or widespread and maybe figure out which devices are affected.Note: my black N97-NAM shipped with v10 firmware, is running v11 firmware now, and was made in China (and has very poor build quality as opposed to the great reviews i read about that - my screen has a gap between it and the keyboard and feels much less stable than all of the reviews made the hinge out to be).
Just upgraded to V40 on my 5800. Now when the phone rings I get 2 options on the touch screen:
1. Answer 2. Unlock
Neither work. I know I can use the buttons, but why have the other options on the screen if they don't work. What about the other options like silence or reject, or send message. All gone.
The new version is **bleep**.Also, when I set an alarm, I can't silence it, or stop it using the touch screen.This all seems to happen when the phone is locked, but if the phone is unlocked, I get the older options.I don't know how I'm expected to unlock my phone just before someone rings me to enable me to have all the existing options, or wake up before my alarm in order to unlock the phone, so I can snooze or stop it.
Frequently my 5800 touch screen is not working.Some times I am unable to use the screen.The call, menu and disconnect buttons only work during this time.Can any please let me know what might be the problem?
I have updated my mobile 5800 xpressmusic firmware to V50.xx. After the update, whenever I receive calles, I am not able to answer the calls by touching the screen, when I get call, I am seeing 2 option in the screen
if I touch the option "answer" it is not working, I need to unlock first then need to touch the "answer" to attend the call,can some one help me what could be the probem?
My nokia 5800 touch screen works fine for 10-12 hours and after that it just stop responding to touch. Whenver i touch on any of the menu options it registers touch but the function doesn't get open. Once i restart the phone it works fine and again after 10-12 hours this problem starts. I got the set replaced by another 5800 and even my new set is having the same problem. Kindly let me know about any solution for this problem.
If I try and switch an alarm off when it is rining, I am unable to do so using the touch screen.I have to press the red button, then go into the alarms and physically remove the alarm.This never happened with v30 (the last firmware I had)Why does this happen?How can I stop it from happening?
I bought 5800 XpressMusic. After one week of usage, I am not able to attend the call through touch screen. When I am on call the touch screen is not working, hence i cannot activate loud speaker, Mute, make conference.
I just bought a 5800 Xpressmusic and am going through the learning phase of how to use this phone. So far pretty pleased with what I have figured out how to use but have run into a couple problems. Not sure if I have set up something wrong or if there may be something wrong with the phone. The first problem is the touch screen functions (i.e. answer, silence, options, reject) do not work when I get a call. So sometimes when I hit the "green" button if will connect, but sometimes it will hang up on whomever was calling. I am using AT&T as my provider. The second problem that I am having now is playing music. It used to work, but now it will not play any songs that I have loaded thorough Ovi program. Even the "back" function key is non-responsive, however, the "option" function key does work.
My Nokia 5800 was dropped on the floor from a distance .. within few days whenever i receive a call .. i touch the green arrow to answer the call but its like i'm not doing anything , it works only if i pressed the keylock from the side, and when i make a call i can't use call option if only i pressed the keylock from the side .. its like my nokia doesn't know that i'm here and touching the screen if i only pressed the keylock from the side .. everything work good after doing that .. just the problem appears when i receive a call, make call, stopping the alarm .. they all want me to press the side keylock then i can start working.. i need help because its confusing me.i've been told to turn the sensor setting on, remove the memory , reset , upgrade , but nothing solve the issue , i'm waiting your replay guys.
