    thanks....ryan

    also...what drivers are you using?
    Unfortunately I have to say again that the the problem wasn't solved
    But it does it a lot less now.

    I think the final reason is indeed that the touch panel is poor quality and that the problem has something to do with the conductive film of the panel. It's either broken or then somehow touching other layers of the panel structure, I don't know.

    Reason for the previously discribed behaviour (pointer jumps right where I touch, not between the problem point and touch point) is, I believe, that the false reading is so weak compared to the touch of finger. That's why it also does that odd twitching when touching the panel very gently.

    Solution for this problem?
    Well.. you could try to find a place that fixes the problem when pressed and then try to apply a constant pressure there by stuffing matter between the case frame and touch panel or between tha lcd and touch panel.

    New panels from China really are cheap but I don't know if it's worth of ordering as they're prolly the same crap as this one.

    rsema: btw where did you purchase your screen? Have you contacted the company who ever sold it and if, have they responsed anything?


    PS: the brand of the LCD is NiceView or atleast it's sold with that name in some sites...

    PS PS: Is there any electronics guru around here who would know how to reduce the sensitivity of the panel? So maybe that way I'd get rid of the "ghost touch". Adding some more resistance won't help anything as it measures the change, not absolute value right?

    I gave up and ordered new panel + controller from Hong Kong.
    (http://stores.ebay.com/SCB-PICs. 57$ including shipping, and replied to my mail in a minute and it wasn't autoreply as you have to mail them which size you want, hope it'll ship as fast )

    I could live with this one as it usually works fine but when it starts screwing around, I have to press the panel so hard that I'm afraid that the LCD will get damaged if I continue that as I already got that one blue vertical line there on time.

    I'll update this thread if anything special occurs.

    Good luck rsema, and thanks everyone for the help!

    I think I have use for it in some diy projects and anyways, I think you problem is also the touch element it self

    But why shouldn't you order another new from ebay too? It doesn't cost much more than shipping this damaged one from finland

    Sounds to me like the same problem the 7" lilliputs get. The touchscreen overlay becomes delaminated as the glue holding it all together melts when the screen gets too hot. Its starts off erratic, then eventually the whole right hand side of the touchscreen will stop working. This problem was acknowledged by Mo @ Lilliput UK Tech support.

    Well known fault on Lilli's. Only known fix is replacement overlay, costs about 40 IIRC from Armen @ digitalww.com



    You'd have thought screen would have come on more than they have in the last 4 years!

    I really wonder why these small panels run so damn hot. I mean this get REALLY hot and all desktop monitors stay really cool, barely warms at all.

    Maybe I should install thin fan on the back side..
