Check if you can connect a mouse (or Keyboard) through USB OTG port (and microUSB-to-USB converter cable)... I'm not sure whether your device supports OTG or not... Just give a try...

No, there's no setting for the sensitivity. The touchscreen controller already filters the input it gets from the screen itself, so probably you wouldn't be able to filter out the faulty touches without also filtering out real touches. What you describe sounds like a hardware problem. I'd recommend giving the screen a wipe with a damp, soapy cloth, then a ...

Not really sure about the tablet version, but in the current mobile version you need to swipe on URL bar.

have the same issues as the first bloggers that posted. I have the Nexus 4 16Gb and in February 2014, I cracked the screen and changed the digitizer. In the process I tore the lithium polymer bag for the battery and subsequently the phone started to have a sweet smell. After 5 days the phone started acting up with these ghost images which was typing the ...

Many devices have this feature included. When the video starts you can push the power button, and if your device supports it the video will play while the touch is turned off. (this is only for supported devices.) The use of third party apps is what most use. Untouch is a very popular one, and can be found in the play store. ( search for Untouch or touch ...

You can use MX Player (adware or pro version), which has a "Kids lock" feature under Settings > Player > Touch controls > Lock mode. P.S. you should not give your phone to 8 months old.

Here are your answers: Depending on how many of the CPU cores are asleep (clocking at less than 200mHz for your phone), the system needs to wake up those. This takes time. If the device is not asleep (doing background work), the screen will turn on very quickly. Best way to deal with: Don't use the power button to turn on the screen, but rather use the ...

Yes, if the phone is connected to the internet, you can install apps from the Google Play web interface](https://play.google.com/store/apps) without touching the phone. Starting the app is a different matter, though: you may need to find an app that's specifically designed for this situation, so it can be triggered without needing to open it from the ...

This is a hardware related problem. The touchscreen sends your system a touch event for every finger you touch it with. If the touchscreen's touch resolution is not that high, it will merge two touches to one. You can't change the touch resolution of your touchscreen but it is possible to send custom touch events to the Android framework using some commands ...

Turn on the phone, and connect it to your computer via USB cable. It will get recognized by the PC as an MTP device from wich you can copy files.

You could get a USB-OTG cable, which allows you to connect USB devices to Android devices via the USB port (so long as the Android device supports OTG, which the A700 does). If you plug in a mouse you'll get a mouse cursor to work with; you could even use a USB hub to attach both a keyboard and a mouse if you want to type instead of using the on-screen ...

You can be 99.9% sure the touchscreen is fine. Battery wasn't damaged too. If the touchscreen still behaves erroneously after unplugging, then rubbing it with a soft cloth should help. This is a common issue with cheap chargers. It indicates that charger may not be safe to use with any device - it may catch fire or explode. Prolonged use of such chargers ...

Screen protector might help protect your fingers, if glass is even and no missing pieces

I was able to use a usb-to-go cable to connect a mouse and get into the phone that way. I'm running Cyanogenmod though. Not sure if the mouse will work with stock android.

Your bar code is being recognized as Physical Keyboard. Hence the soft virtual keyboard on your android is been disabled.. Option 1: Try manually checking the keyboard setting after you connect the bar code reader. Go to Settings -> Language & Input -> and check if the keyboard options are disabled and if so, try enabling them. Option 2: Go to Settings ...

Well with the boot loader unlocked you can temporarily boot up into recovery by using fastboot: fastboot boot recovery-clockwork-6.0.4.7-mako.img This will then give you adb access to your device to get files off etc. The adb debug mode could then be turned on by editing a settings file and copying in the crypto keys generated by adb on the host computer. ...

Finally found solution via editing /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db file via sqlite3. Just adb pull that file to your computer, if you use stock recovery you must mount userdata partition manually, in that case see Android ADB Shell Recovery Mounting for hints. Also you can't just pull the file directly but copy it inside adb ...

No. It is not possible to get this information with the Android SDK. You might get this information if you have access to the drivers and the kernel of your device.

Yes. This is almost certainly a hardware problem and the touchscreen may need to be replaced.

If its just data you are concerned about then you don't even need to mirror your phones screen on your computer. You can use a development tool called ADB, this will allow you to simply connect your phone through USB and access the filesystem. There is plenty of documentation online about ADB, but if you need any specifics for what to do let me know in a ...
