    Hello everyone, nice to see that this forum is still up and running.

    My screen and touch sensitive buttons don't seem to do anything!
    I am currently on the stock Verizon rom.

    I am not sure how it happened but, I can't seem to fix it.
    I've rebooted/power cycled/hard reseted/cleared the catch but nothing seems to work!

    I can't even click on the android button to try to by pass anything.

    I can still boot into the stock recovery and turn on usb mode.

    Is it possible that my phone's firmware needs to be re-installed?

    Sounds like the screen digitizer may have gone bad if nothing responds to touch.

    You could try and reflash the stock firmware but if its a hardware issue it will need repaired.

    Try squeezing the entire phone together... seriously...screen and all...that will sometimes, get the digitized to re connect to the screen, and work for a little bit...not always...

    If not...as he^^^ said...its the digitizer and its either replace it, or the phone...

    -insert catchy phrase here-

    It seems you have to replace the the digitize with a new one.

    wow!!! it worked! after some 5-8 mins of gentle squeeze, the touchscreen sort of 'warmed-up." initially it could only swipe vertically. after a few more squeezing and "pushing" left to right and vice versa, the horizontal scroll eventually returned. Thanks a lot!!!

    yup! I didn't believe it would, either. but no harm in trying and it paid off. before the touchscreen froze, I wiped it with moist cloth (maybe too moist) to remove the fingerprints & smudges. that must have caused its circuit or electrical impulses or something to go wrong. I'm glad it's back in order after numerous firm squeezes

    That's amazingly awesome, minafrancisco! You must have been so thrilled when it worked. :) LOL who'd have 'thunk' it?
    94lt1, that's who. :)

    When someone posts a great fix for a problem, I often save a link to refer to later in case I, or someone else, has the same issue in the future. This is probably the most unusual thing I'll have in that file :D
