    I've got m125 over a year ago and lately I was unable to use because whenever I tap somewhere on the screen, it picks it up as a tap about 1.5cm to the right from the original point. So basically, there is no way I can tap on Ok and other buttons that are placed in the left corner.
    I bought an insurance plan which provides one free screen replacement and I was wondering if this problem might be caused by the screen...
    I don't want to spend time and money sending it there just to get a new screen, but no fix.
    I guess, my question is if someone had similar experience and/or if someone knows how the actual screen works. Does it pick up the tap or does something else underneath it. If it something else, than it's probably not worth replacing the screen...

    Btw, there are no cracks on the screeen, I haven't dropped it or anything, and when I try to recallibrate it, I can spend half an hour tapping around without any luck...

    You can try to re-adjust the pointing feature in your palm. I'm sure you remember it when you first bought it and the palm application asked you to click on certain areas so it can adjust itself. If that doesn't work, then you can spend your money returning it or buying a newer version of palm.
