Abstract

This article describes a method of coordinates detection on a damaged touch panel. An analog resisitive touch panel which has a flaw often detect wrong coordinates because the flaw press the dame But this method allows emergency use of the damaged touch panel until it is repaired. Analog resistive touch panel indicate the middle point when two points are pressed at once, Therefore, when the touch panel driver has the coodinates of the dameged point, the touched point can be figured Mouse or Keyboard operation is required for the touch panel driver to recognize the dameged point.
