I have a dead band on the screen of my tablet that will not respond to my pen


A common problem with the 1200/1300 models apparently. This can be resolved temporarily by rubbing your thumbs (a little pressure) along the bezel/screen edges at the sides of the dead band to re-establish edge connector contacts.I have 2 such dead bands (1 vertical & 1 horizontal), this technique works on one of them but not the other, still looking for a permanent solution, have tried Motion but they state that they no longer support this model but seem reluctant to offer any info for a home fixer. Any info anyone.

Touch Screen When I use the pen on the screen it works fine until it comes across a one inch section in the middle of the screen (that goes completely across the whole screen). After passing that dead area, the cursor finds the pen again. I heard when I upgraded to SP2 (WindowsXP) this may have caused the problem. The screen is seems fine and has not been damaged that I can tell. Have you heard of this before and can you tell me the cure? Thanks Bill Sommerville.


Just fixed this mine bought from ebay. (i) Remove the battery and disconnect the power supply!(ii)Use a pin to lift the six screw covers around the screen and remove the screws. (iii) Carefully remove the screen surround starting at the hinge. I used a mobile phone opening tool as this made it easy to unclip where necessary. (iv) Remove the four screws holding the screen in place and the one holding the screen invertor(?)(v) Place something soft over the keyboard and tilt the screen forward out of the lid onto it, You may have to remove some of the tape holding the ribbon cables to allow it to separate.(vi) There is a small PCB on the back that controls the digitiser. Two ribbon cables go to this nearest to the edge of the screen. Again you may have to remove tape to do the following. Lift the brown plastic clamps that hold the ribbons in place. I slid both ribbons out and checked the connections were clean and not corroded on the ribbon. Again I had to remove more adhesive tape to do this.(vii) Slide the ribbons back into place so they are fully home and close the clamps.(viii) Reassemble fitting all the tapes screws etc.The hardest bit is getting the screen and screen protector clean and free from dust while reassembling!!

Gateway tablet screen does not respond to pen.


I have a Gateway CX2724 and previously had another Gateway tablet (model I don't remember) but they both look alike and use the same pens. I've had 3 pens and they all periodically stop working. When one stops, I pick up another pen and work with it so that makes me think the problem has more to do with the pen. (They have all died and later come alive.) Sometimes though I can't find the extra pen and have resorted to removing the working pen tip / nib and reinserting it very snugly after wiping off the shaft. The nib is held in merely by friction. You can remove it by pinching its little tip between your fingernails and pulling it straight out. I wipe off the shaft and put it snugly back in. Sometimes I don't take it out, but just press it harder into the pen by pushing it firmly onto a padded surface (so that the tip doesn't deform.) Usually one of these "treatments" works. I know that extra nibs are available with the pen. There must be some reason that the manufacturer thinks they may need to be replaced periodically. But I've never seen any documentation on this.

Touch screen not working


Have you tried a new battery in the stylus? They require AAAA size batteries. The first time my pen went out I thought it was the computer not responding, but it turned out to be a dead stylus battery.
