mine had the same problem so I re calibrated it to see if it would stop. After I calibrated it, it worked just fine for a few minutes but then it started getting all jacked up again. I figured it I calibrated it every day it would work so thats what I did. After a while the phone was so messed up I can no longer go to the menu and I can't get to calibration(which was the problem in the first place) and I would have to touch the screen about an inch below the thing I really wanted to touch for it to work. The calls were messed up too. I would have to recall a person about 6 times for it to finally even ring. If somebody called me I could just barely hear their voice but they couldn't hear mine. Then the screen started turning into static all the time and now it has a bluish tint that wont go away and the screen wont work at all no matter where I touch it. The phone randomly shuts down and just plain don't work no more. I've only had it for about 6 months.
my touch screen recently stopped working. I could go to the side menu but I could not go to the regular menu, my contacts, or press the dial key. All I had to do is turn the phone upside down and drag my finger across the button. I guess what had happened is I used it so much the sensor got pushed down in the black part where it says SAMSUNG.
all and all this is a great phone.
I have the answer!!! My Samsung Impression had the same problem! All you do is get your vaccuum the handheld part and just go thru the edges as it cleans out all dirt and water particles that may exist. It only takes about a minute. After you clean the screen and the back of the phone without taking out the battery the calibration should work again! It worked for me!!!
I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM! but I haven't gotten it wet! I text a lot though. And it won't let me even go to the menu to fix the calibration but when I push the message button on the key board the screen is still messed up but it's more responsive to my touch. It literally did this over night! and I have to turn it off and on for texting sometimes because it will stop sending message.
So after reading about tons of ways to fix my touchscreen that just randomly stopped working I decided to just try and take out all the screws in my phone and mess with the inside but I didn't have a screw driver the right size so I just tried to pull the phone apart cause I was to the point that I didn't care if it broke cause it wasnt working already. I ended up sticking a beer bottle opener between the screen and the back of the screen part of the phone and it works just fine. For now at least. So if you plan to get a new phone but just want to get all your stuff off this phone I recommend this. It worked for me on 2 different impressions.
well obviously from all of these comments that basicaly say the same thing, you would think that they should have to fix this problem. My impression stopped working yesterday around 7ish. I have dropped it a few times but not from a very high distance. The screen is black and wont turn on. I know the phones on tho b/c the keyboard is blue? yesterday the screen was on but it was almost as if it was frozen and it wouldnt let me click on anything. This is very frustrating and I almost threw it about 10 times. I dont wanna loose all of my contacts and all my pics. Pleeze help. and any suggestions about a new phone?? im sick of this impression. at&t people..im NOT impressed!! btw i've had the phone for about 10 mnts.
Yes I had the same problem with this phone; I could open any more apps and I could only open stuff about an inch below.. but by this point its impossible to re calibrate. the best thing to do when the phone starts acting up like this is to call your cell phone provider and exchange it.. that is if the one year warranty has not expired. rememer every phone has one year factory warranty that will exchange it without no charge. this will not go through your insurance since its the cell problem. Good luck.
I have the same problem with the Samsung D980. Three days ago my touchscreen starts to freeze. I tried everything and a temporary solution is to shut down the telephone and remove the battery for half an hour. Then it works again, but after a while the touchscreen freezes again.
Although my touchscreen sometimes got some waterdrops on it, it don't think this caused tte problem. I think this is a software problem. When you disconnect the battery for half an hour untill an hour, the mobile phone maybe get a kind of a reset, because afterwards it works fine for some short time and then the touchscreens halters after receiving a phone call or pressing a lot of times on the screen.
This suggests a softwareproblem, which could be solved by new firmware, but I can't find it on the internet. Somebody any idea?
yeah the same thing has happened to me twice ughhh im so pissed like the keyboard is working just fine but I cant even type in my lock code cause the screen isnt f'n responding what I did last time was just took it back to damn radio shack and got a new one.
