Nokia :: 5800- Touch-screen Out Of Calibration


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.

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.

Nokia Nseries :: 5800 Touch Screen Is Not Responding Well Like Any Touch Screen Should
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.

Nokia :: 5800 Screen Protectors Work With Touch Screen Phone?
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 phoneand have the touch screen still work, will it be less sensitive or will it work at all?

Nokia :: N97 / Screen Calibration / Works Well For Few Hours
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.

Nokia :: 5800 XM / Touch Screen Sometimes Works
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?

Nokia :: N97 Screen Rotation Event Causes Compass Calibration Reset?
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)

1. Settings -> Phone -> Sensor settings -> Turning control -> Auto-rotate display (DISABLED)

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).

Nokia :: 5800 - V40 - Cannot Answer Call Using Touch Screen
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.

Nokia: Caller Touch Screen Not Working On 5800 Xpressmusic
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 havefiguredout 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.

Nokia :: Music Xpress 5800 Touch Screen Buttons Would Not Respond
I have had the Nokia XpressMusic for almost a year now. I have been experiencing several problemswith it recently; the first problem shown was that it would call my contactswithout my intention to do so and also without me touching the phone. Often it will send a text half way through me typing it and recentlyit has been switching off by itself.

I have also been experiencing the fuzzy screen due to the coldand this morning the phone's touch screen buttons would not respond however thetoolbar with the music, gallery, connectivity etc... on the right hand side of thescreen would pull down instead. The phone has been dropped a few times, however I do not thinkthis contributes to the faults. Could the phone be repaired as it is still underwarranty or will they not accept it?
