    Droid RAZR Touchscreen Going Crazy While Charging FIX (sort of)

    I'm not sure if I'm the only person this happens to or not, but whenever I charge my Droid RAZR or even my old Droid 2 Global, I absolutely cannot use the touch screen. It would start typing on its own, sending unfinished messages, calling people, etc. I've tried my aftermarket "Verizon" branded charger, my original Motorola charger, and even different sized cables, but nothing seems to help.

    Here's the "fix" I found. The other day, I had my RAZR charging and wanted to listen to a song through my band's PA system. I plugged the phone into the system (consisting of a 1400 watt amplifier and two 215s), and what do you know, the touch screen immediately stops acting up. Since then, I've tried connecting my skull candy ear buds while charging the phone to see if they do the trick, but they do not; however, my powered computer speakers work just as well as the PA system.

    I'm wondering if anyone else has looked into this issue, or has even had this problem? My findings seem to point towards the "glitch" being a grounding issue inside the phone.

    Are you using the charger that came with the phone? If I used my cousins Blackberry charger or if he used mine the same thing would happen. I use the charger that came with my LG headset and it works fine. So does my g/F's cheap Cricket phone charger...

    Yes the charger that came with the phone does the same thing as my Verizon charger. I've tried every logical solution, but to no avail. The trick I discovered is the only anecdote I've found so far.

    I wish the problem would just go away! Unfortunately, it only goes away when unplugged from the charger.

    Today is the first time that this has happened to me. But I went to Verizon and bought there 9ft power cord and used it last night to charge my phone and I will say that it charged my phone quite fast, but my screen was so laggy and would not hardly work at all. This has never happened with the Moto charger that's like 2 ft. So stupid that u can't get a Moto charger that's longer than that from Verizon. I need a longer cord than that to reach my bed and now I cant even use this after market cord from Verizon, unless u don't use the phone while its charging.

    I think maybe the length of the cord has something to do with the screen going insane. I haven't tried my short Moto cord, but the short Verizon cord makes the screen not work. I have the 9ft Verizon cord as well for the same reason and I also have a long Moto cord (from my D2G's dock) and both make the screen screw up.

    OK, so I got the screen working perfectly by just not using the Verizon wall adapter and just plug the cord into the Moto adapter. All is well now and I noticed that this Verizon plug is an energy efficiency plug and I think may e it's not providing enough amperage or something of that sort to the device. Because obviously the same cord is working just fine with the Moto plug.

    Anyways, has anyone else noticed this problem, and if they did, were they using the Verizon after market, universal energy efficient POS plug???

    As stated a few days ago by me...use a new charger as that one probably has a shortage or to high amperage or to low amperage.
