Perform a reset of your device with it connected to your PC. Like many other models, I think this will force a connection to the PC without even asking whether you wish to do so. On the 340, the reset is performed by holding the power button for about 20 seconds until you see the logo and hear the drums start. Immediately release the power button when this occurs.

Before you junk it and buy a new one, have you considered buying a new screen?

The simplest way is to buy the combined screen and "digitiser" package (the digitiser is the touch sensitive bit).

If you buy them together, then swapping it over only requires one ribbon cable to be plugged into the main circuit board.

There are usually plenty of adverts for them on eBay, or if you add your location to your profile (or just tell us!) someone may know a local supplier.
