Have you done a reset on the unit by holding the power button about 20 seconds till you hear the drum sounds unless your model has a dedicated reset hole?

... and it doesn't. The 20 second hold until the drums and logo appear are the ticket for a 740.

If you decide it is the screen at fault, they are usually avaiable on eBay. If you get the combined "Screen and Digitiser" it's a bit more expensive, but a LOT easier to fit.
If you just get the screen, you need to do some surgery to fit it to the existing digitiser (touch screen) panel.
