Calibrating Ideapad A1 so it's not so touch sensitive

Hey, I just got this Ideapad and when I initially set it up it never had me calibrate it. Would calibrating it make it so it's not so sensitive to my taps on the keypad? When I tap a letter it types it 2 or three times and then a couple of commas or whatever punctuation appears after hitting the finished word that it suggests. And then when I tap delete to delete the extra letters it deletes more than the two or three letters I wanted to erase.  So if recalibrating it will fix this can someone tell me how to do that? I saw a post about system recovery but I want to make sure that this won't erase everything I already have on it. Thanks!

Re: Calibrating Ideapad A1 so it's not so touch sensitive

Great question Alexandra, I too suffer the same malady.  Even the launcher goes totally whacko and launches random apps when I ask for a specific app.  I did discover that hand holding the device while typing causes the double strike, yet when I brace it on the desk, it settles down.  I read in one of the forums about this...now I just have to find it.

Re: Calibrating Ideapad A1 so it's not so touch sensitive

Well that was easy, found a reference on this forum from emorrison.  The sequence is this (but I haven't tested):

  • With unit off, press the on/off button while holding the up volume button
  • Wait until it boots
  • using the down volume button scroll down to the calibrate screen
  • tap the on/off button to start the sequence
  • keep your fingers off the screen until it completes (about 15 seconds or so)

Your mileage may vary.

Re: Calibrating Ideapad A1 so it's not so touch sensitive

Hey, thanks so much. I have it on the charger now but as soon as it's finished charging I will try that. I hope it doesn't reset all my preferences, though or get rid of anything. Hopefully it will just allow me to recalibrate.

Re: Calibrating Ideapad A1 so it's not so touch sensitive

It didn't harm anything onboard.  After calibration it's about 80% better.  As a noob to tablets/androids, I think there is a bit of a learning curve.

Hey thanks! I can't believe that I could actually type something in real fast and there were no errors. Thanks for all the help : )

Re: Calibrating Ideapad A1 so it's not so touch sensitive

I have a Lenovo ideatab A2109A.  It is a nice tablet but the touch screen is way too sensitive.  I read where you can calirate iton here but I have encountered a problem with the solution. Problem is there is no menu item titled "touch calibration" on the "Android System Recovery <3e>" screen list.  It wouid be an awesome tablet if I could just calibrate the screen.

 

Can anyone help me with this?

 

Thank youfor your time.
