Touch Pen glitch on edge of P50 screen

2016-11-20, 10:47 AM

I just purchased a brand new P50, and the Touch Pen input doesn't work on one side of the screen: about 1" from the right edge, the pen's input cursor disappears and "magically" reappears on the left edge (but doesn't move inwards from there...it can only move along the edge). As soon as the pen is brought back a bit more leftwards, the cursor once again reappears right below the pen as it should.

Finger inputs work along the entire screen.

 

Is there a way to calibrate the creen or fix this? Obviously the full screen should be usable with a new laptop.

 

Or is this a defective unit?

(I hope not, since I sent back TWO P70s due to defective hardware...)

Bump, anyone know if this is normal? I've read through the forums, with no luck yet...

Anyone have thoughts on this? Is this a defect in the Pxx series?

Another bump...Is it normal to have a 1" zone on the right-hand edge of the P50 screen, where the touchscreen doesn't work and wraps the cursor back to the other side instead?

I'm still unable to find an answer to this, hence posting again...

For your P50 touch screen, does the pen operate successfully all the way to both edges of the screen?

I don't have a touch model of the P50 and apprently many others don't or at least don't have the pen. I would ask this question on r/thinkpad as that would get a much better response I bet since you have already bumped this long without traffic. You could also call support and ask them too.

I am having a similar issue where the touchscreen responds only on part of the screen. I am hoping it is not hardware and I was wondering if you found any option to recalibrate the touchscreen.

My problem: The right 2/3 of the screen registers all 10 points of touch nothing registers on the left 1/3. Funny thing is that when touch and hold on the right 'good' side then touch the left 'bad' side it causes the touch on the right side to dissapear.

That definitely sounds like your digitizer is messed up and needs replaced under warranty.
