    I just attempted to use the technique described on the "Touchscreen Help!" thread to clean the edges of the screen. When I turn on my screen, it is aligned a few pixels too far to the left and I'm not sure what to do about it.

    Does anyone have suggestions?

    Do you mean the entire display is pushed over? Or just your stylus taps??

    That's the way the screen sits on the Treos. You probably just never noticed it before.

    The entire screen displays farther left than it was before, its sort of aligned left than center and no, it was not like this earlier.

    Doesn't that have something to do with the "lights" imbedded under the case to the right of the screen?

    Justin,

    Take a look at this:

    Treo 600 screen is slightly off-center

    Have you noticed that the strip of black on the right side of the screen is slightly wider than the strip of black on the left side? Don't worry, this is not a defect. All Treo 600 screens are slightly off-center (to the left).

    The screen: size vs. symmetry
    In order to design the Treo 600 as one of the most compact smartphones ever created, we had to squeeze the screen, along with all the other components, into a space of 4.4 x 2.4 x 0.9 inches. Rather than make the device symmetrical (and larger), we nudged the screen less than a quarter of an inch off-center, in order to accommodate the other components in minimal space.

    During the design phase, our hardware designers toyed with increasing the width of the plastic casing along the right side of the screen (thus centering the screen in a plastic square that was slightly wider on the right), or making the device itself larger, but they didn't like the way that looked. We went with the more attractive option.

    Is it a defect?
    No, this has been part of the Treo 600 specification from very early in the design phase.

    Our product designers decided on a form factor that maximized the space available in an amazingly compact package.

    Thank you very much, apparently my eyes were playing tricks on me.
