    Anyone found a fix for the screen freaking out... Putting to sleep fixes it. Anyone think it might be screen guards? Really don't think it's a hardware issue or sleep wouldn't fix it.

    Umm, I need a lot more information to work with here. "My screen freaks out" isn't going to cut it.

    Dern... Did it just then.... It starts to push random spots all over the screen. When it started it was only the bottom left quadrant...

    Simple test for that. Factory reset your phone. If you still have the problem (what ever it is as "screen freaks out" is really a poor description of the problem) then it is hardware.

    And your logic is totally flawed. Of course it can be a hardware problem that sleep temporarily solves. When the phone shuts down the screen many hardware functions of the phone change, the screen turns off and registers are cleared, the cpu slows down,and wifi may turn off. And when the phone is brought out of sleep one of the first function calls is a reset of the screen and then it is redrawn in its current state.

    That sorta sounds like your screen needs to be re calibrated. Google how to do that.

    Seriously leaning to the fact that verizon sold me an x case saying it would work. t hasn't happened with it off.

    Honesty, the case was probably putting pressure on the back of the screen, which would cause your problem

    Does your phone happen to do this?





    One of my CLNR Droid X's did that. I did the sbf and all and it still did it. ended up sending it in after a strongly worded talk with a verizon technician.

    My current Droid X will do it once in a great while. but just pull the battery and its good to go again.

    Well the phone shouldn't be that sensitive but some cases are really crappy. You don't by chance have a extended battery in the unit? Most cases can't handle them. You also have to get an new battery door to handle them or they can create pressure on the screen.

    I've had this happen with mine. It's usually after backing out of a program or the camera. The screen will just freeze for a bit and then not be responsive to touch for a bit and then it would start acting like buttons were being pushed cause setting would pop up or the single home key tap that brings up the desktop choices. Putting the screen to sleep and then waking it up fixes it. I'd say it happened about 5 times the last few weeks. I updated to 2.3.3 rooted and it hasn'e happened since. I do have the extended battery but have the extended battery cover. It doesn't seem too tight. I'll let you know if it happens again.

    my screen did the same thing pressing random buttons but only when i had it charging at work with my old blackberry charger and my old blackberry usb connection. It never does it any other time or with any other charger including my old blackberry car charger. After it does it though it usually starts to lag a lot until i reboot

    Mine often thinks I have pressed something, when in fact I haven't even touched it. The way the screen was freaking out, it looked like someone was touching all of the letters in the keyboard. I would love to know what causes this type of action.
