Today’s article is focused on those who are having touch screen sensitivity issues with their Samsung Galaxy devices where the display is acting overly sensitive to touch such as being unable to swipe, launch apps or even type consistently and more.
This issue may also happen to other devices other than the Galaxy S6 as in my case,so this should also apply to any Samsung Galaxy or Android device. This issue may also arise when certain screen protectors or casing combos are placed on your device trigger screen sensitivity issues. So if you are having any issues relating to your touch screen sensitivity not operating properly weather or not you have a screen protector on this should work for fixing your device.
Your Samsung Galaxy becomes very sensitive and unresponsive to various touch gestures and the device basically does not respond to touch as it should naturally.
Fix for Samsung Galaxy S6 Touchscreen Sensitivity issue
1.The first thing that you want to do is to go to your phone dialer and type: *#2663#
2. A new menu should appear, now look for the button option that says :TSP FW update (General) and click on it.
3.It should now start updating, be warned do not turn off the device or interfere with the process simply allow it to finish. When finished it should say update complete pass.
4. You can now hit the back button to exit the menu and test to verify that your phone is now fixed in most cases it should be more responsive and sensitive as normal.
Alternative Option to try:
In case this did not work for you, then try the following:
1.Go into settings and find the option: Language and input
2. Now look for :Pointer Speed.
3. Adjust the slider approximately half way between fast and slow as seen above and click OK and that should fix the issue, you can also adjust and tweak the settings to your liking.
The above was a really easy fix and should have your phone once more behaving as it normally does, we all know how annoying a phone can be when the touch display is acting up, its enough to ruin any ones day but hopefully I saved you from that burden. Please share this article and do subscribe to the blog as I would love to have you as part of this family.
The *#2663# did nothing at all never got the next screen. Tried the pointer adjustment but it was already in the middle so I slide it around and back to middle. Still funky. Already cleaned screen too. Any other suggestions?
No one of those usually fixed it for most people.
The first fix seems to have done the trick. Thank you!
Really cool glad to hear.
Thank you for your time and help
Any time friend.
The code didnt work for me. Do you call it or what? That info would be helpful. Also the language and input is under the general management catagory in settings (a step by step to fix a problem should be as such) one last thing. Mine was defaulted to half way and it was enough to make me want to throw my phone. I had to set it to almost the slowest setting to make it even bearable. I hate this phone and wish it was not my only replacement option
Hi Thank you for this article. Since yesterday i have been having issues with my galaxy s6. The top part of my screen doesn’t react at all. It started acting up yesterday as it was ghosting. The dropdown part above where you see the icon of the battery and wifi was constantly dropping down without swiping or me even touching the phone. Then i couldn’t turn off the Phone at all I had to let the battery die completly. When i recharged it and turned on the phone i could swipe and open application but only the top part still wouldn’t react to touch (the rest does) do you have any tips? i hope i have discribed the problem properly
Did the display get squeezed up? It might be broken if re-calibrating the sensitivity is not working. You can also try backing up and resetting or a simpler thing to try is booting into safe mode and see if the problem continues.
I have a galaxy S6, just got it replaced for a warranty issue, put a new tempered screen protector on it, then my controls went to crap! I tried everything, the pointer speed didn’t work. Finally found your post, did the TSP update, worked perfectly. Thank you!
OMG it worked! I wonder how you ever discovered that! It would have taken me a lifetime! Thanks so very much!!!!!
Awesome…..I’m 62 and tried numerous items to get this phone to allow the letter “E” to work everytime…..LOL….and you gave the perfect fix. Thank you for being out there to assist…..
Glad to help out T.Smith and glad to see one can be resourceful at any age.
