Hi all. I've usually gotten good help from these forums and hoping for it again. I've had my Palm Centro for almost two years and love it. So much in fact that I've already replaced the keyboard and the housing to keep ahold of it. I'd switch to a Palm Pre if it had a microSD slot but sadly it doesn't and Palm seems to be on their way down so I want to make this phone last as long as it can.
At first, the touch screen wouldn't click anywhere near where I put the pen, even after re-calibrating the screen. Then it slowly got to where it just wouldn't work. I had bought a new touch screen off of ebay (not the whole LCD assembly) because my screen was scratched. As a lot of you may know, it wasn't the actually screen that was scratched, but the plastic protector so I didn't end up using the screen so I had this on hand. I installed it, having to pry it away using a knife, and still the same issue!
I'm scared... I now have a phone that has to be completely operated with the keys and currently it's stuck in the calibration screen. I have tried hard resets and verifying all the cables and still nothing.
In summary, touch screen doesn't work. I have tried..
- Performing a hard reset
- Replacing the digitizer
- Verifying all ribbon connectors
So should I call it hosed or try spending $15 for a new LCD assembly only for that not to work which could be possible. Anything I can do..? I love this phone and I'm not ready to say goodbye... it's my sweetheart. D:
