bottom of touchscreen not responding to touch
The bottom 1/2" or so is very unresponsive. It takes multiple taps to get a reaction. The rest of the screen appears to operate properly. What's wrong? Is there anything that can be done to fix this?
Traveld, this is usually caused by a defective digitizer or digitizer control board. Of course you always want to try a restore and factory reset first (you may lose all your data) and see if that fixes it. Most likely you will have to replace the control board or digitizer. Start with the cheaper part first:-) Here are all the guides you use for the repair. The parts are readily available. Hope this helps, good luck
Well I myself am 13 but I'm glad to know at least why parts of the screen on my PC doesn't respond even if I can't fix it so thanks anyways. It was $2000 when I got it and it still operates like a PC without a touchscreen should when you first get it only this thing is about 6 - 7 years old.
I had this problem with an Ipad 2. Replacing the digitizer resolved it. The digitizer connection was not making good contact.
