Hi Andy, this calibration process never ended. During the process I got a message saying "Trouble Finding Satellites" "Continue Searching" Then I could answer yes or no and the screen did not respond to my touch. I had been able to callibrate the screen before, and it didn't help with the touch working. There's just response when I touch
