    Lilliput help please...

    Hello to you all....

    i have a small problem with my lilliput, it is totally impossible to get the screeen to react on the middel of the right side...when i press the screen there, i canīt seem to get to the very border of the screen.....so its impossible to scroll down cant reach the side.....

    and another thing, : my carīs battery died out yesterday, and and after i re chargeded it, the screen seems to have been darker, contrast....is lower.. ( hope you understand what i meen, im from denmark so English in writing isent very good.)

    Anyone has an answer to this ????

    BR

    I have a problem with my Toshiba e740 Pocket PC where I cannot access bottom and top right corners of the screen and calibration does not help. This is due to a damaged touchscreen. Even though you might not see any cracks on your screen, there could still be something wrong. If your lilly is under warranty, I suggest you either fix it or exchange for a new one. To make sure it's really broken, try hooking it up to a different computer.

    It is possible that your monitor got a micro-crack somewhere when your car hit a bump.
    I just know that touchscreens can have certain areas disabled permanently.
    It could be just a calibration problem though - have you tried re-calibrating the touchscreen?
    Sometimes when you use your finger a lot the calibration gets a little messed up, especially on Pocket PC's. I'm pretty sure that the lilliput screen has the same property.
    A driver problem is very unlikely. This looks like a typical case of "out of calibration".
    That is unless you have already tried recalibrating it.

    Calibration

    Did you do the BIG CALIBRATION? the 24 Point one? Do THAT calibration, not t he basic 8 one (or whatever low number it is).

    And of course if that doesn't work - reinstall the drivers. After that you can be sure whether it's broken or just buggy. Remember - the calibration settings are stored in the registry, and damaging the registry (even on a Pocket PC) can cause the calibration to go out of control. Damaging the registry is easy - you just have unplug power from your PC without shutting down properly. Even if a small area of your touchscreen has gone bad, you can still tweak the registry to compensate for it. It's a hard task though, especially if you got some 24 calibration points..

    Have you had any solution to this? I just purchased a Lilliput screen off ebay and received it yesterday. I have the exact same problem with the right side of the screen. I can reach both top and bottom corners but not the middle of the screen.
    Is this just a bad LCD?

    I too have this issue and have not been able to resolve. During the 25 point calibration (done MULTIPLE times) you can see the last 1/2" or so of the middle right is off.

    No changes were made to the system at the time the problem started happening. no new hardware/software/drivers.

    It is a constant problem, not intermitant.
