Default Gen3 Touch Screen stopped

First day out with HDS Gen3/9, the chart, sonar, and structure scan worked just fine.
Until I was on some rougher water and tried to swipe the right hand menus away. I probably tapped the screen a number of times in unknown spots.
For the second half of the day, no touch on the screen was recognized.

I did go to the Systems Control dialog and tried to toggle the Touch Lock to see if that was it.

Next I was thinking of going to Tools/Restore Defaults, but I had done a fair amount of setup and did not want to lose the work.

Any ideas?

Stan,

Try and do a soft reset (which does not delete data):

To do a soft reset, start with the unit off. Press and hold down the pages button and push the power key. Keep holding down the pages button until the map of the U.S. shows up and it's done. This reset will not erase any waypoints or trails you have saved.

If that doesn't work, I'd try and apply the latest update if you haven't done so already...

Thanks Tog.
It took two soft resets, but the touch screen activated again.
