  • Lilliput Troubles...

    Let me start out by saying that yes I have down a search before starting this thread. I look through various threads that sounded like maybe it was my problem, but all that I read were not related and there are a lot of threads. I did not read though every single one as there were too many.

    OK. So I got my 8" Lilliput 889GL today in the mail. For some reason after calibrating the mouse pointer is still not where it should be after touching my screen. Wherever I touch the mouse pointer will show up just a half inch to the right and lower.

    I have done that 4 point, 9 point and 25 point calibration. Pressed the red bulls eye until I hear the beep...I've made sure that I was extra careful in holding the stylus directly in the middle...

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks

    i am no-where near my car, but i think that there might be some things you can adjust in the setup program that is included with the drivers. i know that on my 629 7", i have adjusted the right side youch parameter so that i can scroll web pages easier.

      Thanks for the reply

      So I looked around some more in the driver program tools and I didn't find anything. What version of the drivers are you using? I have the windows 7 one.

        I am using the xp version.
        Hmm, then it might be a bad touch screen controller...

          I see...brand new out of the box? Well anyways, is this something common and that probably I can get from Lilliput?

          Thanks for your reply again

            Dumb question, but have you tried calibrating it with a slight offset similar to the one you're seeing after you complete the calibration? If nothing else, it'd be worth trying to see if it gives you spot-on accuracy that way, or if it gets even more confused. Good luck!

              I just tried playing around with some settings with edge compensation sliders...didn't do anything. I am afraid I didn't see any offset settings in the egalax...

              But thanks for the reply

                i think he is saying that instead of playing with the settings in the setup program, try running calibration again, but press on the screen about the amount of distance that the screen is missing the exact center by..

                  Soundman98 thanks for clarifying on that, Guswut thanks for the suggestion because I have it about 98% accurate now! I am sure with some more trial and error I will get it right on.

                  Thanks again!

                    You have a monitor with a defective touch controller/panel.

                      I see...When you say controller/panel is that the same piece? If I can get the touch accurate enough is there any reason to replace it?

                      Thanks

                        No they are 2 different parts. On the lilliput the touch controller is built in to the main PCB. The touch panel connects to the controller. I mentioned both because without testing it there is no real way for me to know. I would say replace it. If it is new and drifting already there is no way to tell if it will get worse over time. I am sure the money you paid for the unit was more than kind of green so the monitor should do more than kind of work right.

                          Unfortunately I bought it off the classified section of this forum...Might be hard to return...but I did get it for a 100 instead of 240 so I am sort of willing to pay for either of those parts if they are within a reasonable price...of course I need to find out which one...this great deal of a monitor is turning into a questionable one...wondering if it were really new at all lol
