No probs chick. Right when you get the 4 boxes, do you then touch all 4 with the stylus and then press A to confirm? It should then be set. Also is the touch screen out at all when games are being played as they are usually really good at being accurate. :thumbsup:

Hi I dont even manage to reach the point of the 4 boxes it just goes on an on lol and yes it's very out when she on piczo chat and playing games xx

Right, when you start the calibration test, there should be a little red box in the top left corner that you have to tap with the stylus, then bottom right and then the centre. Is the first one showing up?

Right! So it just keeps repeating those same 3 steps. It sounds like you're not quite getting it spot on in the cross but if it's not that it could be dirt making it hard to recognise the touch.
