    Screen touch problem

    My d2g fell and since then, started having a mind of its own, like a ghost finger opening, closing, cycling through lots of apps, folders, screens etc.

    Sitting in the dock, worked fine for about 30 minutes and started doing it again.

    Went to Verizon and opted for an early upgrade to the d4.

    They offered me $35 for it. I kept it. Is there somewhere that can fix it?

    D2G and D4. Digitizer bit the dust on the D2G and I needed to get up fast so upgraded to the D4.

    D4, Love it.

    hi,

    I have very similar problem, as though I was pressing on one particular place on the screen. temporarily helps locking the screen, cleaning it a bit (against shirt or trousers), but it reappears again-after touching the same place. any ideas? is it fixable? may it be because the phone got "sweat" in arm-pocket while running? (it was not wet from me but from moisture inside the plastic).

    I have seen some display for change with kit, but I am afraid it does not help.

    thanks for anyhelp

    I think I will order a digitizer screen with tools and see if I can change it out myself. Should be about $20 and shipping. If I get it going, I'll give it to my better half. I like the D4.

    I just recently started having the exact same problem you describe. Like the thing had a mind of its own. Was driving me INSANE!

    Somehow after leaving it overnight on the charger, after a day or two it stopped going crazy. But, it still displays some really frustrating touch-screen issues. For example its pretty much impossible for me to press on anything on the right -most centimeter column of the screen. Also the touch seems to be more innacurate, typing with the on-screen keyboard is pretty much useless.

    I thought it was from perhaps problem with recently flash Cyanogen Mod 7, but after reading this, it appears that something is wrong internally (possibly moisture like you said).

    Really sucks, I liked the phone a lot, lasted about a year or so. I wonder if I can qualify for this "early upgrade" and get a D4? God I hope so...

    You guys weren't happening to be using CyanogenMod were you when this happened?

    I'm guessing not, and that my phone is Fubared

    And my next upgrade date isn't until August DAMNIT

    Nasa, were you able to replace the screen with the digitizer screen and fix the issue?

    It doesn't sound like it worked...which sucks because I can afford $20 for a new screen, definitely cannot afford $550 for an early upgrade to D4

    I have not ordered it yet. Have had too many things to do and not enough time. I will reply when it is done. I paid about $230 for the early upgrade to the D4.

    I understand, in your opinion, do you believe that replacing the "screen" on this phone would

    remedy the issue you and I are having? If so, what site would you order one of these screen

    replacements from? I don't want to order from a random site found on Google & find out it's unreliable...


    I'm thinking I might only need to pay $230 or so as well for early upgrade to D4 but right now thats

    still beyond my budget...economy is taking its toll on me very acutely. Thanks for your help btw.

    The problem was not ROM dependent on my phone, It made on the STOCK and also in MIUI ROM. I think it's moisture problem, since some people in Singapore was asking for some similar symptoms...? But nothing official.

    I would upgrade, but newer phones are too large for me. D2G is accurately sized for me :-( Unfortunately it does not seem to be developed with more precise (retsina?) display to enhace dpi - and enlarge display size by its quality :-(
