BUG: Anyone else getting the screen "truncated"

BUG: Anyone else getting the screen "truncated" ?

I am using the phone and all is well and suddenly it decides its running a lower res screen and only renders everything in the top half of the screen.

Home screen is fine but settings / mail etc all show half a screen.

I have had it twice in 24 hours .. both times requiring a reboot but I can't reproduce it at all ... I will pay more attention to what I have done next time.

My general opinion is its a lovely phone.

I can't get it working via ADB though but then again I have left my disks at home so I can't even install the Acer HSUSB driver ;)

Yup and brilliant it is but as I have no disk I am left frustrated as I can't even install the ACER HSUSB Drivers and I think I need to get past there to get the ADB device driver installed to use ADB ? Or am I missing something ?

use a task manager to find out whats going on i the background when it happens. my guess would be betterkeyboard, but that is just a wild guess without seeing the background processes

I have experienced the exact same problem maybe 5-6 times during my first 24h with the phone. '

Of the apps you guys have installed I have only installed:

Updated Google Maps

Scandinavian Keyboard + dictionary.

I think the problem is caused by keyboard applications.

Long press menu in Android will launch sowtwarekeyboard.

I noticed with my former phone (Hero), the "shake" programs caused similar issues. But it appears JoBu does not have that installed.

This also happens to my liquid. I noticed it after I installed the HTC keyboard.

After you type a message or type anything using the HTC keyboard (in landscape or portrait mode) and then flip the phone into portrait mode - you will be missing approx half the screen as shown Rocky7's pics (seems only to be on menus but once happened my entire home screen!) I twigged that the screen cutoff was the same size as the HTC keyboard in portrait mode - so it was like a remnant of it remained on scree after typing with it. ;)

so long press the menu key to bring up the keyboard and close it again and your screen will revert to normal ;) little bit of hassle but worth it to use the superior HTC keyboard ;)

Experienced it once.

Tap the "search" button to show virtual keyboard.

Hit "return" button to make it desappear.

Should fix your resolution problem.

What ROM this is happening on ?

Thanks a lot.

mine is 1.002.03_EMEA_GEN1

your method also works to resolve it - minor hassle i feel for the better keyboard.

Also, this only occurs for me when I type on the keyboard in landscape mode and don't manually press the "hide" keyboard button when I am finished typing and then return to the main menu! would still like a fix tho ;)

Thanks to you we can now assume this is linked to 3rd apps virtual keyboards.

I just recall I had the issue with AnySoftKeyboard.

Don't have it nomore on 1.002.03 EMEA GEN1 and default android keyboard.

I guess fix shall not come from Acer but from 3rd apps keyboard developpers.

Anyone agrees ?

possibly but the HTC keyboard I was using wasn't really a 3rd party release as such so I doubt that will get fixed! hopefully someone can come up with a hack for that one as it is streets ahead of the stock keyboard.

I do think it really is related to non stock keyboards - as soon as I uninstalled the HTC keyboard I never experienced the bug once using the stock android keyboard.

** any help here?? ** The main reason I needed a new keyboard was the stock keyboard didn't seem to have any english words in the dictionary by default so suggestions and autocomplete were useless!!?? anyone else experience that? I could add words to the user dictionary and they displayed as suggestions but I'm hardly going to add a complete dictionary into the user defined one word by word ;)

Right.

As you don't know, I'm French. LOL. And no french suggestions in the dictionary in default settings either.

So I guess we can assume no suggestions nor autocorect functions in Acer Liquid ROMs for now. Let's wait for an update.

hmmm strange Rocky7 since I only get it with HTC's! what version of the HTC_IME did you use / where did you get it? did you also install the touch input calibration tool? I wonder how mine is still having issues with this keyboard (and none without!)

WVGA - ;) I actually changed my local to France to check if that dictionary had any entries! oh well at least its not a bug in my device - hopefully Acer will update this in the next Rom.

its the one from the Cyanogen mod thread on XDA.

I did install the calib tool too.

I am saying I haven't had it since but it is intermittent but while using BetterKB I had it about 3 times in the first day and I haven't had it since

A.) installing HTC_IME

B.) removing "Shake It Bright + Turn It Silent"

Tempting fate. Just had it again but calling up the KB fixes it immediately as does going into Facebook so the KB recall might be a red herring.
