Align screen pops up every now and then

This has been happening since yesterday and driving me crazy. I carry the TP2 in a belt holder. Yesterday when I got a call I took the phone out and it was showing me the align screen with the plus mark. None of the keys were responding, until I completed the align sequence going along each edge of the screen. By then the call had dropped. Today afternoon it happened again, while I was driving. I am beginning to think some key is getting pressed, but I cant figure out which.

Yes, it has been discussed, but not everyone is a search expert.

Basic issue....volume buttons are getting pushed at the same time the screen is getting touched. A locking program such as Pocket Shield fixed me

Re: Align screen pops up every now and then

I have a fix for this!

It is a hardware fix, but it works, and more importantly (for me anyways) it confirmed that 100% of my Align Screen issues were from this "feature".

Here is the fix:
1. Remove the battery cover, and carefully remove the volume button assembly from the rest of the cover by removing the tops of the 2 melted plastic pins. (I spun a small drill bit with my fingers)

2. Take a piece of fine wet/dry sandpaper and tape it to something flat. Put a little water on it, and sand down the buttons so that they are slightly recessed to the battery cover when held back in place.

3. Reinstall the volume button assembly, with a drop of glue on each plastic pin, or re-melt the plastic pins to secure.

This allows you to still easily adjust the volume, but makes it much harder to hit both of them accidentally as you can feel the hole in the battery cover if you are touching it there when taking it out of the case!

Hope this helps!
