Thread: Help needed for touchscreen
11-10-2007, 08:36 AM #1Help needed for touchscreen
I have a 1.1.1 from US, unlocked and jailbroken. It have been working fine till i drop it today, no physical demaged, no cracked screen but top part of the touchscreen is not working.
1st 2 rows icon are not working, when I am in phone keypad, 1,2,3,4,5,6 is not working, but 7,8,9,*,0,# and the rest are working ?
I could not even turn off the phone, as i cannot slide to power off, can only press on cancel.
Anyone have the same issue ? it seems like the digitizer is faulty, but not totally ...

I do not think by using this http://limitededitioniphone.com/ipho...e-sensitivity/ will help, but I will try.
Wanted to open the iphone and see if any ribbon is loss due to the drop, [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SCf1b974vxI"]YouTube - Apple iPhone Closer Look Inside Teardown & Unlock[/ame]
P/S : I am in Singapore, so cannot send back to US for replacement
Please advice, thanks

Try reeboting your iPhone by holding down de powwer an home button, sometimes it takes up to 30 seconds to reboot.

Wow, they have a defective iPhone... instead of replacing it, why not make a stupefied Youtube video showing everyone that 0.1 percent of iPhone's went bad.Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.

hi johnnykok, is ur problem solved? i have a 1.0.2 and the touch screen stopped working completely. i cannot even slide to unlock so can't get into the phone at all. rebooting doesn't help. replacing the general.plist doesn't help as well because can't get into the phone.
same problem here. i'm also in singapore.........
anyone out there, is there any solution other than sending back to apple for a replacement?
