easy2touch calibration or replacement

Postby budbecks on Sun May 22, 2011 11:40 pm

Hi all,

i have an Easy2Touch TS 600.

I need to know if there is any way of calibrating it ?

I have a programming manual but it has no option to calibrate. I can plug a keybord in but cant seem to bring up and hidden menu.

Basically i have a small area that wont respond to touch. It may be faulty or it may need re calibrating. i dont know but if i could try and calibrate it then it would either fix it or rule it out.

Any advice would be great.

Failing that, anyone know where i can pick up a cheap elo touch panel part number "526535-000" or "C67656-000"

Many thanks in advance.

If the calibration is out then where you're touching will be detected slightly out as opposed to not at all. Depending on what part of the screen is not responding, especially the corners then it's probably best not to try and calibrate it - if you cant press one of the calibration points then you will be properly stuffed!

that my friend is a very good point.

It was working but now a small section does not respond. I have had it all to bits and cleaned it with weak de-ionised water and white vinegar mix but hasnt solved it.

Cleaned the seal and any possibility of foriegn matter but doesnt wont to work in a certain area.

Seems there are shit loads of these panels in the US but you have to buy at least 5 and there not cheap.

I was going to suggest you clean the join with the gasket as sometimes then fill up with crud and the touch panel thinks something is pressing on it at that point. Is it somewhere used often that's done one on you like the cash key?

We usually buy touch panels straight from the manafacturer of the machines, they always seem to be different and vary massively in price, often they're more than £100 :(

I guess uv tried looking on ebay? xxx

yeah had a quick look but nothing. Im gunna setup a saved search just in case something becomes available. At least then i dont have to keep checking.

Yeah i had a look around google and the cheapest was about $105 from US but didn't include delivery. And again i think min order was 5 !!

I did read that they are widely used by other manufacturers but under different product codes.

Ebay must produce something, it normally does.

if you have disassembled it - make sure you plugged its connector in the right way round - it works either way but the calibration is way off if reversed .

There are various models of easy2touch out there and each one calibrates differently - also be aware that some model screens may require a BIOS version change before the display will work, the tell-tale sign is a white screen during boot up.
All replacement screens will need to be the right type and calibrated once installed.

TS600 - DSDN Screen - this is a dull screen who's brightness can be controlled by a little wheel at the side
TS600 - TFT Screen - this is a bright screen and the wheel does nothing
TS700 - TFT Screen - this is bigger than the TS600 but only came with one type of screen.

Calibrations: -

All of the below require you to be in DOS Mode

TS600 - DSDN - this is the trickiest and the oldest so probably not this one
Press F5 on the beep during startup
Press Enter twice
Enter - CD\TOUCH
Enter - ELODEV 2210,3,9600,11
Enter - ELOCALIB -m12 -s+ -u+ -q
Touch the three points on the display


TS600 - TFT
Press F8 on the beep, answer Y to all prompts except BLANKSCR.EXE and APOSTS.EXE
Enter - CD\TOUCH
Enter - SETUP
I think once setup has been done, you need to enter GO to run the calibration program

Note: the baud rate is 9600, Com Port = 3 and the IRQ = 11
Note 2: When prompted "Calibrate 800x600" select NO otherwise the screen will go blank and you'll have to start again.

TS700 - TFT
Press F8 on the beep, answer Y to all prompts except BLANKSCR.EXE and APOSTS*^.EXE
Enter - CD\HAMMOUSE
Enter - CALIBRAT

follow the on screen prompts
