Unhappy [Q] Xperia Mini Pro Digitizer Calibration

I have broken my Mini Pro digitizer. The touch still worked but it was badly cracked. So I ordered a replacement from Aliexpress (link) and sent my phone to a local repair shop for digitizer replacement.
They sent back the phone to me today, unfortunately the bottom part of the screen doesn't recognize any touches.

They said that it has to be "recalibrated" but they don't know how.
I personally don't think capacitive touchscreens can be calibrated. I have tried flashing stock GB and ICS ftf, nothing has worked.
I think the digitizer is defective. Am I right and should I open a dispute to get my money back, or is there really any way to "recalibrate" the screen?

This is the method to calibrate touch screen using adb shell....

Step no 1.

Find touch screen model using the command below
Code:
cat /sys/devices/platform/spi_qsd.0/spi0.0/appid
you will get a code .

check the code and note the corresponding driver .

0x0603 : touch_mango_seiko.hex
0x0103 : touch_mango_sony_type1.hex
0x0113 : touch_mango_sony_type2.hex
0x0203 : touch_mango_hitachi.hex


Step no. 2 caliberation
I am using touch_mango_seiko.hex as an example .Replace it with your driver .

Code:
cyttsp_fwloader -dev /sys/devices/platform/spi_qsd.0/spi0.0 -fw /system/etc/firmware/touch_mango_seiko.hex ; reboot
If it still doesn't work then try methods on the thread below

Thanks for you method. I tried the command and I got 0x0103 : touch_mango_sony_type1.hex, I changed it with cyttsp_fwloader but it became even worse, the touch was unuable.
I restored with SEUS it's still the same as it was before.
I guess it's a issue with the digitizer after all

Yeah ...cyttsp is the touchscreen calibrator
If it doesn't work then touch screen is faulty

Ok thank you again.
Do you have any recommendation where can I order digitizer and LCD online?

The seller has good feedback but the shipping can take 2 - 8 weeks, as it's free shipping and comes from China, so you will have to wait a while to recieve it, unless you pay for shipping but that is very expensive to your country.

Not really ....
I got my touchscreen replaced from local shop ...Costed me roughly 40$ ...

FYI ,The colors on my touchscreen were a bit warm on installation .After 20 odd calibrations the touch screen showed proper colors
