Default My P3 is dying on me. Already.

Well, I put up a previous thread on here that is titled 'No touch response'. Since not many have read that, I thought I'd put this one up to add more detail and ask more advice. Anyways, my P3 seems to have lost it's touch response capability. The area where the 'OK' and 'Widget' options come up, is where there is absolutely no response. I have to tap the screen frantically for it to respond. Now it has spread. Great. Now the 'Icon' or the three lines used as a menu is also in the same condition. I tried to register my P3 on Samsung's website and it got stuck at the page where it showed my price for the warranty. I clicked 'Continue' and it never loaded. All it showed was "Data now processing". I did this three or four times. What do I do? Keep trying or just ship it? I'm slowly losing my patience...

Return it - no way it should be like that in a short space of time.

I already registered it...At least I think I did because as mentioned, it has kept getting frozen at the 'cost' page. Did they receive it or do I have to keep trying until it gets past that page? I don't want to send my P3 in without them knowing what's the problem. They might just keep it or something.

I had the same problem too. My OK key was gone. As I tried to press harder in that portion and in frustration pressed hard all over the whole screen also then even the whole screen ended up with no response whatsoever. My P3 was an import set so I had no warranty... I thought I was really screwed and I have had it for just around 6 months

Then I noticed that the P3 face was pressing against the display as I pressed on it. So since I had nothing to lose, I opened up my P3 as shown in the Disassembly thread (thanks trikoon) and put some stickit around the edges of the screen to act as spacer. I also loosen the screws that hold the metal frame to the screen and then put it back together.

Now I have my touch response back. Don't dare to press hard against the screen any more though.... feather touches only

Maybe the problem is due to the soft plastic face deforming from too many presses?

I hope this could help someone.
