    I just replaced the screen protector film and now the touchscreen is completely dead. Even if I take the film back off, it does not detect any touches. I'm afraid I broke one of the connections while I was cleaning the gunk out from the edges of the screen. My 650 is almost two years old, so I pretty sure I'm out of warranty, what is the best way to proceed? If I could get those funny star screws out I would just try to go in and re-solder it myself.

    There is no such thing for your solder.

    I believe in your case, when you clean the edges, something got stuck then it gave a force to the digitizer. FInd the Torx-5, open Treo 650 housing and clean the edges again, but do not dissemble the whole LCD.

    Goodluck

    Where is a good place to buy a torx wrench?

    edit: Mcmaster seems to carry them. I wonder if anyone at my work has them too?

    Ok, bigger problem now. When I'm making a call, the red power button no longer works to hang up. It works fine when I'm not making a call. I'm not sure how that could have gotten screwed up.

    Not to worry about the Red button. Once you fix the touch screen the red issue will be gone.

    I got hold of the correct torx wrench and cleaned out my Treo. Everything seems to be working fine now. Thanks. I appreciate the warning not to go into the LCD assembly. I don't know if I would have been tempted to go in there or not, but it was nice knowing I didn't have to.
