I searched and found some info but no answers... I have been using an IPronto for approx 3 weeks and things were going well until last night. I have lost the touchscreen calibration. It is so far off that I can not push the calibrate button to attempt to correct the issue.

Is there any way to force a calibration during startup.

What I have tried is a reset
a reload of the firmware with the default icf

any thing else to try?

thanks
Baz

Thats pretty much the routine I usually inform people of.

- Reboot the iPronto.
- Reload the Firmware.
- Re-download the icf.

Have you searched this forum, I know this has been covered a few times.

Good luck,

Joey

Well I have recently downloaded the latest firmware (tried to do it yesterday again but the server seems to be down)

Used the method that forces the recreation of the 5 partitions

loaded the default ICF

and no luck.

the only "solution" I found via the search was to wait for the internal system battery to die so you do an initial setup.

The solution I opted for was to purchase another IPronto that was missing most of its accessories and use that

I plan on looking inside the broken one just for fun

What do you meant by internal system battery? Just slide off the battery cover and unplug the main battery and you should be set. There is no other battery that I know of in the IPronto.

I have disconnected the main battery... but the system time is still staying correct. I am waiting for whatever is keeping that time correct to give out so I can sort of start from scratch

Could be a rechargeable or button cell battery, which means you could be waiting for years.

My IPronto's have never kept time with the main battery disconnected. I think another thread has pictures of an IPronto taken apart. See if you see any battery in it.
