    So when you press down on the screen nothing registers? It does sound like a hardware issue. Couldn't hurt to have it replaced.

    The business card should not have damaged anything. I have been using since November and all is fine. If the issue persists or gets worse you should have it replaced as it sounds like a hardware issue.

    I agree with Josh.....I have had my last storm for quite a while and screen click been perfect out of the box and still is with no fixes....so if yours is acting up, I would definitely get it replaced.

    Ok, keep us posted...if you bought it from someone, then your best bet would be to try all possible fixes.

    Good to hear. Just loosen it a little bit at a time until you find the right setting for you. This should solve your problem.

    also if you use a pencil, you can mark the screw so you know how many turns you made.
