    Suddenly today my Palm Pixi started going insane. I have no cracks in my screen, I haven't dropped it or banged it into anything, but today whenever it is turned on the very top bar of the touchscreen is acting like someone is touching it over and over rapidly. It gives the little touch mark all across the top of the screen, back and forth-constantly opening up the menu for editing and the menu for turning on/off airplane mode. It's making the phone unfunctional. Any ideas or fixes? I've restarted both Luna and the phone to no avail.

    Do a hard reset(Batt Pull), or run a doc on the device. Doctor versions: Webos Doctor Versions - WebOS Internals.


    Good luck. :-D

    A shielded cable will work fine. An unshielded one leaks voltage which makes the screen go nuts.

    Switch on your Pixi, keep the screen on, Hold it against a CRT/Tube TV, switch on the TV, and turn it off. The static from the TV will activate the touch screen.
