  • Datalux touchscreen problems...

    (moving this to the right section)

    Anyone have any ideas? I have a LMV10RB but I'm having some problems with the touchscreen. Actually the touch does not work at all (though the rest of the monitor works great.) I think I have all the proper drivers, but I've tried it on two seperate machines and neither even detects the touchscreen is plugged into the serial port. Scans on all bauds/channels, but does not find anything.

    The programs I'm using to get this working are Touchware by Microstouch and the microcal utility, all provided by the folks at Datalux.

    I bought the screen used so I don't know the history on it. It appears to have been made in 4/98. SN 83-188271-

    Any thoughts?

    Same Problem!

    Its too bad no one has responded because I am having the exact same problem. Im also uing the touchware software and it scans all the com ports and does not detect the touch screen at all, which i have hooked up to my serial port. I dont know what to do, have you since found a solution to the problem????? OR can anyone else help with this problem??

          I purchased my Datalux LMV10R from jpainter... he seems to know his stuff about them. When I first received mine, I had a little trouble getting it all set up... my problem turned out to be the baud rate setting in the touchware settings... I don't recall what it needs to be set to, but if you haven't played with that, try adjusting and testing with different settings. I want to say it was set at 9600 but could be wrong.

          TTYL!

            I'll have to look again, but as I recall the software automatically searched all the possible baud rates-- and still found nothing...

              Coincindentally i also have purchased from jpainter, although i didnt buy my datalux screen from him, only a custom made power adpater which hooks up to the Power supply unit in my computer rather then the one that plugs into a wall socket (pretty cool!). Anyways i have his email so i guess i will try asking him.

              I would try changing the baud rate, but you can not adjust that setting until the touch screen controller is found on one of the com ports. Since it cannot be found, (it just keeps asking me if i want to choose another com port, but none of them find it) I cannot adjust the baud rate.

              My screen did not come with a cd so i just downloaded the touchware drivers from the link on datalux's site. I think i have the right drivers and they are probably not the problem but; i am not exactly sure if they are the right ones for my screen because datalux's site doesnt have the greatest driver support.

                  I too have this problem, i have a LMV10RB/83-189148 puter cannot find controller on com ports.
                  I am at a loss, this is my first TS and I have tried everything- have searched and read posts for a week and no help, just several posts in the past with the same problem-no solutions.

                      have a doodle in bios, usually there are some settings regards to serial ports settings.
                      also when you see device manager is the device there as unknown or missing drivers or not initialised? try installing the drivers manually by updating drivers from device manager,

                      im no expert but i thought i give you a shimmer of light

                      using latest drivers?

                        Add another Datalux monitor to the list that install cant find the touschscreen. I've downloaded everything I can find, I even downloaded the dos test utility, figured that here I dont have a windows caused problem. I've tried this all on my laptop, next step is to try it on the actual carputer since I believe it's onboard serial port is less likley to being effected to the onlboard winmodem and all the weird stuff laptops do.

                          Also, the above link sends you to a older page with the most recent as TW564SR3, if you search for tw564SR4 it has been released as well. Still didnt help, but it says its "XP" able..

                            I had some problems with my computer recognizing the datalux touchscreen. It turned out to be a problem with the serial ports. I deleted them from the device manager, let windows re-find them and everything was OK

                              an easy way to see if the touchscreen is working thru the serial port is to do the following:

                              1. Open up Hyperterminal (Start->Programs->Accessories->Communication)
                              2. Make A connection using whatever Com Port the touchscreen uses
                              3. In the properties for the connection, go to ACSII Setup
                              4. Check Echo characters typed locally
                              5. Start touching the panel, you should see characters start popping up on the screen

                              If this works you know the touchscreen is in fact working and there is a problem with the drivers.

                              I had problems setting mine up, turns out somewhere in the setup I had to actually go in and set the baud rate and the com port.
