Default 9500 Storm - touch screen will not open anything.

Please Login to Remove!

I bought a grade A 2nd hand 9500 storm a few weeks ago on ebay.

Phone was working OK - then last week the touch screen would not open anything.

Yesterday I discovered the reset button under the battery cover - I pressed it and the phone worked again.

This morning I have the same problem - touch screen will not open anything. Pressing reset button does nothing.

I can scroll on the screen - when I press applications they light up - but will not open. I can answer calls using green button, red button works also handset lock button works.

Camera button does not work and volume up/down button does not work.

I can't open messages, I can't make a call as I need the touch screen to select numbers or contacts.

Really annoying.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Thanks


edit - Newbie = sorry I now realise there is a model specific forum and have posted in there. Thanks

Ok - point taken.

You can see I edited above and to be honest expected this thread to be closed and not the thread in the model specific forum.


You have closed the thread in the model specific forum leaving this thread here.

Can you please move this thread to the model specific forum? I would be very grateful.

thanks
