Dropped my Touch Pro!

I just got my Touch Pro less than a week ago and I already dropped it this morning. It turns on and it works, but... the screen is now flipped sideways so I don't see my main screen anymore when i hold the phone upright, I just see the menu as it is when you open the keyboard from the main screen. Occasionally, if I flip open the keyboard I will see the main home screen but if i try to slide on it it goes back to the keyboard sideways menu. Please Help! I bought my phone from someone on Craigs List so I can't return it to the store and I am not sure if they can fix it since I didn't buy through them

Thanks so much!

Re: Dropped my Touch Pro!

I tried that but its still out of whack...Now its closed and it is switcing back and forth between the closed keyboard menu and the open keyboard menu, but mostly it stays on the open keyboard.

Re: Dropped my Touch Pro!

i'd personally try a hard reset before flashing a rom....
problem either way, though, is calibrating the screen when you need to

Re: Dropped my Touch Pro!

I tried a hard reset once and it seemed to work a little better. I could actually use my home screen for a little it before it would switch back to sideways view. I'm currently doing my second hard reset to see if that helps anymore. I was watching the videos that saidin69 sent me. And I am a little nervous about bricking my phone during that process plus the possiblity that they may not even fix my dilema.

Re: Dropped my Touch Pro!

to be quite honest, if a hard reset didn't do it, flashing a rom won't fix it either.
i hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it sounds like you have a hardware problem on your hands... probably broke the switch that detects whether the keyboard is in or out
