    Default Galaxy S4 screen not responding

    So I have searched for the answer and cannot find an answer.
    My Galaxy S4 is a little over a year old. Recently I noticed the vibrating stopped working. I felt that was an easy enough fix, based on tear downs, etc. Well I got the vibrating to work again. However, after reassembling the phone the touchscreen does not respond. Home, power, and volume work, but not the touchscreen. So I disconnect the digitizer and then reconnect it, replace the battery, power up, and it works for only a minute or two.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks for any help or suggestions. I have not tried a factory reset, but a little piece of me thinks that I'm SOL.

    A factory reset is unlikely to fix it. This is a hardware issue, so you're probably right about being out of luck.
    Do you have insurance with your carrier?

    Nope no insurance. It's really weird. It will run for a solid 10 minutes then stop. Pull the battery, reinsert, and it last a minute. Maybe I'll disconnect the vibrating motor.
