HTC One X - Screen pressing its own buttons, looks possessed
May just be a generic issue regarding the hardware and not just related to the HTC One X.
The title says it all, first and foremost, the warranty has ran out, I'm simply looking for a fix.
I want to actually take the phone apart to fix this issue , but not a clue where to start and what it is exactly I need to replace.
Already tried a factory reset to no avail.
EDIT: I must also add this is intermittent, it can happen for a few hours then not happen for days.
EDIT 2: I removed the screen protector a few weeks back, didn't have any affect.
Thanks in advance.

Re: HTC One X - Screen pressing its own buttons, looks possessed
I'm having the same issue, have no clue as to why. It started this morning when I tried to turn off my alarm. My phone was sitting on my bedside table charging. I picked it up and tried to unlock the screen but the phone began acting on it's own, jerkily opening and closing programs and selecting icons. Even calling contacts, hanging up immediately, opening up texts and composing gibberish, activating the camera and taking like 50 pictures all while I helplessly watch. Any attempt to touch the home or back button were completely unresponsive. It was impossible to navigate. I restarted my phone a couple of times but the problem persisted. I wanted to just turn my phone off but my phone wouldn't stop doing stuff on it's own long enough to allow me to select the power off option. I finally performed a manual factory reset (by pressing the home key and the down volume button for 30 seconds) but the problem persisted when it booted back up. Finally I just left my phone alone for about an hour or so, left it on the entire time since it's impossible to turn off or do anything with it, and the problem seems to have subsided for now. I was able to make a quick phone call. It's pretty weird, it seems to have gone away as suddenly as it came. If the problem continues I'll go to the t-mobile store and get it replaced as it seems to be a hardware issue.
