    so one day a month or so ago i was listening to pandora on my motorola droid out fishing. the screen just started twitching and it wouldnt respond. finally got it to respond and ended everything with a taskmanager.

    then i realized the search key on the bottom right and the rest of the very edge of the right side of the screen doesnt work!!

    this was like this for a week or so then one day i got a force close on the android home process. then the screen and search button worked again.

    same situation playing pandora and same thing happened now my screen doesnt work again

    anyone have any suggestions?? tried ending home and other processes, i uninstalled pandora, soft reset, hard reset, im out of ideas

    thanks for reading

    i am having the same problem. im not sure in my case if it is related to pandora or not. i plugged it into the charger and the next morning the right side of the screen just stopped working overnight.

    I'd bring it in to the nearest store and have them give you another one. This doesn't sound like something there is a fix for. A tech might be able to tell you that half the screen is controlled by gizmo A and the other half by gizmo B but it sounds like something is on the fritz. Especially if you didn't root or anything.
