Help! My Motorola has gone crazy...Today while :) getting on, some sort of voice update popped up--instead of hitting cancel, I accidentally hit OK.. Since then I have to pound the touchscreen very hard about 10 times to access "anything" and it is taking forever.... I can't find any new updates....any ideas?

What Model of Motorola is it? A tablet? A phone? This information will help greatly.

It is a Motorola Zoom tablet and the problem seems to be affecting the touchscreen...

You mean the Xoom?
How tech savvy are you when it comes to taking things apart?
Quite:Repairing Xoom's Touch Screen Intermittent Unresponsiveness

Not so much: probably have to take it back to Motorola or an electronics store, since im not able to find a simply solution without taking it apart.


I am not tech savy at all, but thanks for trying...Will just continue to play around with it until I can figure out how to undo whatever it was that I did.....:)

Your thread title sounds like a prayer from Moses on his way down Mt. Sinai after too much coffee.
